Most of my family members have done their education in the science field, mainly in Engineering. Hence, I too developed a liking towards engineering. I thank my family for being the backbone of my achievement.

 

Careers360: Why did you decide to pursue management education?

Aniruddha: I have always been fascinated by how to make money and more importantly, how to manage it.  This is a part of financial management. I always wanted to excel in the field of management especially finances. Hence, I decided to pursue Financial management education.

Aniruddha: Apart from MAH CET, I appeared for four other exams. None of them could be converted into positive opportunities.

 

Careers360: How did you prepare for the exam?

Aniruddha: I had around 40 days to dedicate to CET. Keeping a target score (of marks) in my mind, I used to practice accordingly. Every sectional test or a mock test was aimed at achieving those marks.

 

Careers360: What was your exam strategy for MAH CET?

Aniruddha: There was no strategy as such. However, I charted a plan to attempt the different sections in a particular order in order to maximise my score.

 

Careers360: Which is your dream B-School where you are targeting admission in?

Aniruddha: JBIMS Mumbai of course. It’s certainly one of the best management institutions in the country.

 

Careers360: What is your career plan after completing MBA?

Aniruddha: Gain a lot of exposure in my chosen field of specialization while working with a reputed organisation. Will make further plans accordingly.

 

Careers360: What are your hobbies and what do you like to do during leisure?

Aniruddha: I  am an avid reader and also a sports enthusiast. I make sure to take out time to read. Also, I never miss an opportunity to play. I also spend time in preparing personal investment portfolios.

 

Careers360: What is your advice for the MAH CET aspirants who would be appearing for the test next year?

Aniruddha: My advice to them would be to have a clear vision in mind as to which set of colleges they are aiming for. Accordingly, set a target score in mind and work towards it, not only while giving full length mocks, but also while attempting sectional and individual topic tests. Success not only depends on your performance on the D-day but also, on every day of hard work.
