An Amplifying Experience!!

With an honor’s degree in political science and substantial work experience to my credit, I had a plethora of options for pursuing my higher education. However my heart was already set on Amplify. I had visited the Amplify campus on an earlier occasion and had been impressed by the Institute…. from the size of the campus and the appealing architecture of the Institute to its residential accommodation, lecture halls and even the college canteen! In my mind’s eye, I could see that this is the place where I belonged.


When I was doing my graduation from Delhi. I used to hear people say that Pune is the “Oxford” of India. I used to find this hard to believe. I always thought of Pune as a large industrial city with all auto majors having their manufacturing units here…closer to being a “Detroit” than an “Oxford”! Yet, when I look back, I now realize how apt this tag of “Oxford” fits Pune. It is indeed a centre for learning, where numerous academic institutions create a kind of knowledge eco-system.

Amplify has a highly distinguished faculty and one big value-add that the Amplify faculty create for the students, besides conducting lectures, is finding opportunities for the students to participate in real-life scenarios…to experience and implement what they learn in the classroom. Take the example of our Institute Principal who taught us the basics of hotel management. As part of the curriculum, he asked to take up the college canteen as a project and apply our academic learning to improve the college canteen! So simple and yet so relevant. Our faculty would spend hours with us looking at our project work, guiding us on areas of improvement and teaching us value systems and work-life philosophy…..something that is so much more important than just bookish “gyaan”. You almost feel that the faculty is like an extended part of your family and that they really care for you .

What one learns outside the classroom is as important as what one learns in the classroom. At Amplify I got ample opportunities for both. I believe that, sometimes when you get into a fiercely competitive institute, you end up spending most of your time in the rat-race and perhaps learn only what gets taught in the classroom. But when you come to a place like Amplify, you have an opportunity for 360 degree self-development. I had the opportunity to participate in all kinds of college festivals, competitions, programs and other extracurricular activities. I got a chance to organize the HR conclave (attended by luminaries such as Kiran Bedi (IPS), Lila Poonwala (Alpha-Laval) and K.C. Chhabria (Finolex) and then of course the opportunity to re-create the college canteen I mentioedn earlier.

I felt that my experience at Amplify helped me to grow in many ways. I feel lucky to have been a part of BVP’s Amplify Post-Graduate course in Human Resources. And believe it has helped me prepare well for the challenges of life ahead.

Graduation caps fly in the air!!

Joyfully tossing the graduation caps in the air, ex-students of Amplify Mindware made the most of their convocation day! The lanes of the Campus were filled with joy and laughter; every student seemed to be enthused about the ceremony. The maroon colored robes and caps stood out from the rest of the crowd.  The bright, almost gaudy color suited the mood of the occasion perfectly.

Where are you working? What’s your designation like? These were the typical questions that Amplify students asked their recently graduated friends. Almost all ex-students had bagged good jobs in leading companies in India. Professors of the graduating class were seen praising their students with pride.

After the ceremony, students had mixed emotions – some had tears of joy and happiness, from meeting their friends and the reality of being a graduate. On the other hand, some had tears of sadness rolling down their cheeks, from missing the strong attachments and bonding they had built up over the years at Amplify!!

Here is a video of an ex-student, Milli Bhaumick who studied Telecom Management. She shares with us the entire journey and the experiences of being at AMPLIFY MINDWARE.
