Study in Switzerland, explained briefly

Switzerland being an economically stable country offers a lucrative future to students. With high standards of education, it’s universities are among some of the top in world rankings. The country attracts international students in the areas of Business & Administration, Economics, Fashion, Food and Beverage, Languages, Management and Engineering. Inspite of having 4 official languages – Italian, Romansh, German, French, none of which are English, the universities offer many programs taught in English and hence attract many international students. 25% of the population in Switzerland is foreign so not knowing the four official languages does not pose a problem.

Our Student Success Stories: Udita Chakrabarti, queer activist, feminist and former lawyer with an active interest in humanitarian causes

When Udita first contacted us in 2014, she had already finished a BA LLB from Calcutta University and was working as a lawyer for two years.

Congratulations, Preeti, for all your successful applications. Keep up the good work! Delhi/Kolkata: The second wave of Covid-19 is now in India, and it is again forcing lockdowns in many parts of the country. Again migrants are out to return to their native places.

Who worked on ground zero is Preeti Agrawal, a 2013 batch Indian Postal Service (IPoS) officer. Presently, Preeti is Under Secretary, […]

Our Student Success Stories: Ritika Agarwal, the Mind behind Kolkata’s 1920 Bakery

The bread really was the hero of quarantine kitchens; be it the sourdough starters or focaccia kits, breads did ‘rise’ to every occasion. The newly opened 1920 Bakery is actually a step ahead of your neighbourhood bakeries in terms of curation. “No one in the city was making a chocolate babka, for instance. Fresh hand-made options were just not there; we wanted to elevate the way we use breads, in terms of flavours or ingredients. And we thought let’s introduce something different, we essentially wanted to bring something new to people’s tables,” Ritika Agarwal, the mind behind the bakery, tells us. The expert-run kitchen started its run during the lockdown and quickly discovered it had a lot of ground to […]

MBA after 10+ years of work experience – to do or not to do?

It is a dilemma for those who have crossed the age of 30 and have 10 or more years of work experience. The usual experience required for an MBA is 3-5 years. You can stretch this to 7-8 years. But if you have 10 or more years, many business schools will question your ‘late waking up’. If you have good reason for such delay, it would be imperative for you to explain it in the application. What the business schools will also consider is your career trajectory. If you have taken more time to achieve what others have in fewer years, it will go against you. No school will want students who might slow down the class. Besides, universities would […]

One has to be very resilient!

Studying abroad is a change for life. The one common thing all parents experience is how independent their children have become. Living and competing amongst a community of self-motivated students from different parts of the world teaches our young and protected children to stand up and stand out. Thank you Mrs. Sanyal for your thoughts!
