Sidharth Kumar
MBA REUI (2017-2019)
Placed at Knight Frank

I am a civil engineer by background and being in the built environment industry has always been the dream. It gives a tremendous feeling when you are the driving force behind things - Be it on-site operations/facility management/leasing/valuations etc. So getting into Built Environment was a natural choice.

Any advice to students considering joining RICS SBE?
Getting into RICS is a privilege, not many have it. If you have the opportunity, grab it, work on it and shine! Cheers.

How did the MBA program at RICS SBE help you?
The best change I feel RICS has given to me as an individual - Confidence and being fearless. Majority of the credit goes to SLING (Student body of RICS). I joined as an associate member of Logistics vertical (the backbone of each event) and eventually ended up heading the same. With time it helped me from learning the work at grassroots level & managing the team of 7 and choosing a proper strategy for handover the baton to the junior batch. The 2 years with SLING have bolstered my confidence.
