My First Week at TAPMI – Satish Hariharan

Satish Hariharan, TAPMI (2013-2015 Batch)

It all started with me signing the identification sheet at the entrance gate.

I entered the college with lot of expectations and TAPMI has been just as I expected: Competitive environment, rain, cold weather, scenic place, umbrellas, rain coats, group tasks, stress on academics, academic rigour and a carefully threaded system designed to make you an efficient manager in the future.

We are still in the first week of our primer session as I write this, but the amount of learning, competition, seriousness and focus inculcated in me has been huge. This gets even better when I see lot of amazing people around me and a set of close friends within the very first week.

With people from 20 different states and around 76% of the batch having prior experience from various sectors, diversity is never a question in TAPMI.

The formal inaugural induction ceremony of the 31st batch of TAPMI kicked off with Dr R.C. Natrajan addressing the batch. He spoke of the immense legacy and prestige that institute has carried along in its 31 year long journey. He also gave us a jest of the famous AACSB recognition the institute carries. The chief guest of the day was Dr.P.Thirumalavan, chairman of the New Mangalore Port Trust (NMPT). His inspirational speech conveyed all the qualities a manager should posses. He substantiated each and every quality with an example from his own experience in various ports like Vizag, Chennai, Kochi and Mangalore.

Second part of the induction programme saw Professor Gururaj Kediyoor providing us a microscopic explanation of the AACSB accreditation and the amount of processes compliance & consistency college displayed to get it. His fun filled and never to forget lecture also talked about how to approach the MBA programme coupled with insights on placements and its relation with a student’s efforts and abilities. Definitely, one of the rarest lectures where a person quantifies “attitude problems” which students are usually accused of.

The much talked about MBA flavor is already evident in the first week of college. Preparing a skit for cultural programme till mid night and getting up next morning at 8 for classes, sneaking out time for outings in spite of assignments inline and the much hyped “late night chai”.TAPMI student area image 5

There is a stark difference in the atmosphere of classes in an MBA programme and any UG degree. The level of seriousness and focus on learning which the students display is immense. The same is from the professors’ side too, when they understand and convey the purpose of each and every class and also take responsibility in facilitating learning.TAPMI Library image 2

It has all started well and is expected to go full throttle pretty soon.

Looking forward to 2 great years at TAPMI.
