My life at Amplify!!

I always dreamt of being on a ship, away from home and exploring new places. For realizing my dream, I knew one thing for sure : I have to work hard and I have to get myself an International Business Management degree from a top notch Institute.

In course of my search for institutes offering International Business Management programs, I realized, there are only 12 institutes in India who offer such a course. After screening through various institutes, Amplify Mindware seemed to grab my attention. One of the reasons why I found Amplify as the most suitable option, was on account of its association with Bharati Vidyapeeth, which according to me, is a brand by itself. Also, Amplify seemed to provide a balanced mix of education as well extra curricular activities, which I felt would be an asset for me . I made an application to Amplify, and soon after, I received their e- mail, confirming my admission, based on my MAT score. I was was highly thrilled at securing this opportunity

Soon after joining Amplify, I developed a liking for its friendly atmosphere. One of the best things at Amplify were its various round-the-year events. Cultural events, quiz sessions, industry visits, participation in various national and international programmes……..all were fun at Amplify. Also I found that be it colleagues or room mates or be it faculty members or the canteen staff….we are all one big family..

Apart from this, I loved to be a part of the various competitions held at Amplify. I was a part of the National Presentation Competition, where we (Amplify students) stood fifth! It was a great exposure for me. The competitive experience was simply amazing!! I got to learn various things like how to present oneself and how to compete in a positive manner. These two things actually helped me to build my confidence which I proudly flaunt today. With a chance of participating in these events , one tends to leave behind ones introvert image and that is exactly what happened with me. Today I am a more confident person than before. All thanks to Amplify!!

As far as the faculty in concerned, I believe that they play the most important part in shaping one’s career. I just adore and love them all. I won’t be biased as to who is my favorite teacher because I think that all my professors are equally responsible for my growth and in making me more knowledgeable. I highly respect them all and think that Amplify faculty is incomparable!!

Wish to be a part of Amplify??

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.
