Life in Mysore @ MYRA

Almost a year and a half have passed. That’s how long it has been since I landed at one of the famous tourist places in India, Mysore, to pursue my MBA at the MYRA School of Business. Before joining MYRA, I was confused as to which college I should pursue my MBA from. I needed a place where I could enhance my skills and gain proper knowledge.

When I went through the MYRA website, I was a little scared and interested at the same time as it was mentioned that we would be the first batch. They also displayed their excellent faculty list and their contacts. In India, students and parents always judge a college by their placement record. As MYRA was new and had no past placement history, but they reassured us that they would bring top companies to campus. This impressed me a lot and finally I took the decision and here I am at MYRA.

When I saw MYRA for the first time, I fell in love with the place. I have never seen such lovely infrastructure in my life. If I talk about the weather, environment and want to describe them in one word, I will say awesome. At MYRA students of my batch were from 13 different states, different cultures, different languages and each of them had talent and had experiences in different field. It seems so interesting that half of India was together in one place.

Another good thing was that MYRA had come up with a new educational model called Immersion model. In this Model, faculty with a great profile, come from different countries for 15 days and finish their courses and conduct final exams and give grades. It seemed so interesting that we study one subject deeply for 15 days and give exams and get grades at the same time. This model gave us proper knowledge for one subject in 15 days and then we would continue to the next subject.

Wow!! What an Environment the faculty used to create at the time of teaching. It was mind blowing. They shared examples which we have never heard of and also discussed subject related cases with us which were from Harvard University.

As we were the founding batch, there were not any club activities, but we have taken initiatives to start different clubs and we were successful in starting 8 clubs at MYRA School of Business, like Marketing Finance, Arts and Culture (KALATMIKA), Social (Sahaya), Quiz, Sports Etc. Being a part of these clubs, we have conducted so many events like quiz competition, Cricket tournament (MYRA Premier League), Organized Garba night and Ganesh ‘Chathurthi’ festival and ‘swacchbharatabhiyan’.

I can say that MYRA School of Business will be one of the top most colleges in the coming few years. This college is going to build its legacy and we are the roots of this college. After all we are first batch of MYRA!
