I am Rachitaben Prajapati from Vadodara,
Gujarat, India. My father is having his own business of furniture fitting
materials. My mother is a beautiful home-maker taking care of my family. My
younger brother is being a helping hand in my father’s business.
passed SSC in 2007 and HSC in 2009 by obtaining 63.38% and 63% respectively.
Then as I was interested into learning the fundamentals of Business and its
process, I enrolled myself in BBA program just after HSC. I completed BBA with
the specialization subject as Foreign Trade from Sardar Patel University, Anand
in 2012. During that I had participated in Business Battle competition in which
we had achieved 7th rank out of 37 teams. This competition has made
us learnt many things like Decision-making, teamwork, basic rules of Business,
proper utilization of finance, co-operation among team and many more.
After completion of my bachelor’s
program, I decided to gain a practical experience. I started working from
August 2012 with Mini Traders as Admin Executive. This company is supplying and delivers stationary
materials to some well-known MNCs in Vadodara and other cities. After gaining two years of experience in this segment, I decided
to take another opportunity in a completely new segment i.e. banking. I started
working with IDBI Bank as a Sales executive; into which I was being paid by
Innovsource Pvt. Ltd., Vadodara. While working with banking sector, I was also
helping my father with his business.
While working in my family business I realized
that the knowledge and experience I have presently is not sufficient to achieve
higher levels and build a successful career. So, I came up with the thought to
pursue MBA from overseas.
several reasons to choose MBA as the program for my next level studies. First
and foremost is I have mentioned earlier that I also want to have a career as a
businesswoman as I have observed my family members. I strongly believe that
this MBA is the right choice to fulfill my desired goal. Secondly, MBA provides
the opportunity to meet people from different backgrounds. And then I will have
my fellow students that are also ambitious in the business world. Lastly, after
completing the MBA program, a graduate is certified in all known core areas or
at least some major managerial roles within an establishment. This degree is
one that is highly recognizable throughout the world.
Once I finished this Master’s
course in management, I plan to return to my home country to develop my
business and apply what I learn in your MBA program, to succeed my family business.
After two years of graduation, I expect to have a successful career that I can
be proud of.
