The team that delivers India's biggest business fest!
FII gave me a gamut of opportunities to put to practice what I learnt during my stay at IIMB and definitely has played a huge role in preparing me for the corporate world. Whether it is dealing with vendors or negotiating with the sponsor or ideating and implementing a flagship event or managing a talented team, FII has taught me the soft skills needed to be a good manager. The club serves as a platform where you can interact with the who’s who of the corporate world and makes you a part of a network that is otherwise unfathomable for a graduate student. Looking back, I think my life at IIMB would have been incomplete without the challenge and joy of working for FII, a forum that has given me lessons, skills and friends for life.
FII was one of the best things that happened to me at B. To this day some of the closest friends I have are friends from FII. It got me a network of people I otherwise may not have had the opportunity to work with. It opened a world of opportunities to experiment with different ideas I have had. People in FII were a lot of fun to be with. Our parties were amongst the best on campus. Being a part of the core team for Vista was literally a privilege. Though I could not be an official member of the club in my 2nd year (because I had to go on exchange to Paris), I chose to stick around and help the club as an informal member. I did it purely because of the people of FII. It got me an awesome network of seniors, batch mates and juniors. These are bonds that will last forever. It’s amazing to be associated with FII. FII truly rocks!
My experience with FII has been my most memorable time ever in IIMB. In spite of the seriousness of the work, the fun, the group and immensely rewarding scenarios that face you while in FII are something that you cherish for life. Having spent both my campus years with FII, I can surely say, it brings out the real you gives you friends you can never let go. But there is one caveat- be sure when you work on anything in FII, you put your heart into it else all the good things will turn upside down.
FII is one of the those things that made my stay at IIM B memorable. Got to work with best of the best minds of campus. Learnt a lot while brainstorming events that could make an impact, handling high profile speakers, discussing on how to make Vista bigger & better and managing the host of other activities that make Vista & FII what it is today. Right from joining FII, I felt I had a great support system of not just my current team members but also of numerous other alumni who worked as part of FII. Even though they mean business, FII is a group of smart & fun guys who also believe in partying hard.
