As a prior student of medicine, I entered JSBF with many confusions and questions, and it’s not been that long since I’ve joined the stream but there’s one thing, I am definite about: I made the right choice choosing JSBF.
When we think about banking and finance, the first thought that comes to mind is typically not of fun and adventure, but that is not the case with the BCom. (Hons.) program, this course has changed my outlook on the world of finance, while it requires you to work hard, it also teaches you how to work smart, it gives you a reality check of the real world, it prepares you for the future in the best way possible. Here, I am learning true-world commerce under the guidance of some of the best minds I’ve come across.
Even in the online mode, it lives up to its name and promise. The faculty teach us and treat us well to help us achieve our full potential. The course structure is highly inclusive & comprehensive, it perfectly aligns with professional certifications like ACCA & CFA as well, and that is a testament to the perfect mix we learn here.
I can proudly say I had the privilege of interacting and learning from the brilliant minds around me, some are my fellow mates, some my professors and some are the esteemed guests we get to interact with regularly. I now feel a genuine responsibility to give other people some of the opportunities that I had. And I get to do so, by volunteering in the various social work societies and other academic clubs here itself.
I already see so many opportunities ahead of me, and it’s an amazing feeling when you get the balance of living your college life with a sense of security for the future and excitement in the present.
I am making the most of this journey and I am looking forward to making many wonderful memories, connections, and learning valuable lessons. From someone who began as a confused and nervous kid, I am sure I will leave JSBF a more confident & practical adult.
A shy, introverted girl entered JGU in July 2018 to begin a new journey of her life with absolutely no idea about what the next three years had to offer her. And that was me, Roli Bansal. My keen interest in the world of accountancy & finance and the multi-disciplinary curriculum offered by JSBF pulled me here. I was initially apprehensive about being able to adjust away from home. But within a few weeks, everything seemed to fall in place, and the campus felt like home!
The first year seemed to have passed away in the blink of an eye! But for an introvert like me, every day seemed to come with a new challenge, and an opportunity to overcome all fears and learn from them. With each passing day, I discovered a better version of myself. I felt more confident, more dedicated, more disciplined, and more responsible. At the beginning of the second year, I was selected to represent a group of freshers as their ‘Buddy’ during the Buddy Project 2019. And that was the time I realized that I was capable to take over more responsibilities and accountability, and hence, I decided to serve my school through the JSBF Student Council. And a few weeks later, I was elected as the first General Secretary & Treasurer of JSBF.
As the General Secretary and Treasurer at JSBF, I have learned a lot! From meeting new people and looking at a whole different world, to get an opportunity to be a part of the Organising Committee at the First Global Finance Conclave and interview some well-renowned professionals, to be able to represent my school as an Election Commissioner at COGSASH and work with senior faculty members and council members from different schools, from developing trust, good working relationship, leadership and teamwork skills, to represent myself as one who can take charge and get things done in order, and most importantly, time management! Being a student council member is not only about the duties that come along but also managing work outside the council. While this post brought lots of extra work on top of the academic workload, being the General Secretary and Treasurer at JSBF is one of my top experiences at JGU!
My other top experiences at JGU include the memories created with some amazingly adorable people, I love to call family now! From not knowing each other to knowing the person more than themselves, to completing assignments and cooking food together, we all grew up and not only got to know the other person better but ourselves as well! I grew as an individual, not only academically but also culturally and emotionally.
And today I’m here, about to complete my graduate degree, and I feel proud to say that joining JGU was one of the best decisions of my life! I’m grateful for everything it gave to me, be it academics, co-curricular, some life-changing experiences, highly educated and experienced mentors, or a new me! Today, I feel more confident and prepared for any situation to knock on my door. With all the learnings and experiences gained at JGU, I move forward to pursue further studies in the field of accounting and finance. I am so glad that I got the opportunity to be a part of JSBF and would encourage people to come here and experience the same!
