I’m currently pursuing Post-Graduate Program in Sports Management from IISM. Sports has always been a vital part of my life. It gave me something more than just a purpose – it gave me an identity. I always wanted to be on the playground than be confined within the four walls of the classroom during my school life.

This fascination with sports made me curious about not just the strategies of the game but also about the logistical and management aspect of it. To continue this professionally, I choose IISM for my training. So far, my journey at IISM has been amazing. From the first day itself, we have been trained with ground-level experiences. I was also elected as President of the College Sports Festival.

Apart from this, I have received an internship at FIFA World Cup 2022, in Qatar. Through education at IISM, I am taking my efforts forward and building myself as an ethical leader who can create new systems for the sports industry.

Studying sports management at IISM opened doors to the dynamic world of sports. I’ve explored diverse roles, which led me to become the Manager of Partnerships and Alliances at FanCode.

As someone who is very enthusiastic about making a career in sports management, IISM has surpassed all expectations.

They had added a lot of value to the knowledge I have gathered to date. IISM has offered many opportunities to work and to network with many people from varied backgrounds in the sector along with offering academic excellence. For instance, being a football fan, I had an opportunity to work with the Bhaichung Bhutia Football School through IISM placements and I am grateful for it as it is a great start to my career in sports. Being a reputed institution, I would urge all students, with full confidence, to join the institute as they provide a platform to meet new people who will aid you to excel in your selected field.
