Teach­ing here is in­no­va­tive

India Today - - SCHOOL SPECIAL - Ananta Reddy Reddy, 25, worked for two years with Di­recti. He will grad­u­ate from FMS, Delhi, in 2014.

Con­trary to pop­u­lar opin­ion, an MBA is not a ticket to se­nior man­age­ment. What it does give you, how­ever, is an in­creased knowl­edge-base and more net­work­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties. Th­ese are the two main rea­sons that pro­pelled me to re­turn to the class­room af­ter hav­ing worked for two years at Di­recti, a web ser­vices firm in Mum­bai. It was an easy tran­si­tion from full-time work to a stu­dent, mostly be­cause of FMS’s in­for­mal style of teach­ing. Stu­dents are en­cour­aged to think in­de­pen­dently and come up with out-of-the box ideas. This helps make the ad­just­ment eas­ier.

I do not re­gard the two years at the work­place a waste of time but rather as an in­vest­ment be­cause those years taught me the value of pro­fes­sion­al­ism, ma­tu­rity and work dis­ci­pline.
