How did you come to know about RICS SBE? What made you go for MBA in REUI at RICS SBE?
I came to Amity University to take admission in MBA – General and had applied for it but at that time a seminar was going on in the college about RICS SBE. I happened to attend that seminar where I got to know about RICS SBE. When I attended the seminar, I got to know about the growing scope in Real Estate sector and the opportunities which made me opt for the MBA in REUI since I always never very keen to do a general MBA.

Tell us about your placement experience? What are your future plans?
The pre-placement process helped me a lot to prepare well to go through the interviews in the best way possible. I applied for a job in L&T realty, Mahindra Lifespaces and CBRE. I got a job in sales and marketing in L&T realty. I’m clear about my future plans. I’m going to do job in L&T for 2 years in marketing and sales and learn about the market and work after which I plan to switch to an IPC.
Being a girl, where do you think there is opportunity in this sector?
The real estate services industry is a great sector for woman to work in. Knight Frank, in particular, appreciates and understands that women bring a unique set of capabilities and instincts to professional life. Women who want to pursue real estate as a full-time profession should join an organization which has a well-entrenched gender diversity ethos, provides equal opportunities to all and practices the highest ethical standards.
