Tanuj Kapta || IIM-Bangalore EPGP 2017-18
A year back in 2015, after getting rejected by ISB, I was so demoralised that I was in doubt whether I would ever be able make it to any decent B School in India. Then through reference from one of my friend I contacted Backspace Consulting and thus came in to contact with Partha PD Sir. As I was posted in Delhi and all sessions and schedule had to be either on phone or skype, I was bit apprehensive about the methodology. Still, because of very positive feedback from my friend, I decided to go ahead with Backspace and today I can proudly say that it was the right decision made at a very right time. By joining Backspace, I got the opportunity to rediscover myself and gain the confidence in me so much that within a month we decided to apply only to the top B-schools viz. IIM A ,B,C & ISB. Finally after making it through IIMB EPGP, I didn't then go ahead with ISB and IIM C and just applied to IIM A PGPX and reached up to interview stage.
Partha sir is a very patient teacher and an honest critic as well. He spent lot of time talking to me and analysed my strengths and weaknesses and very gently pointed out them to me and gave a strategy to strengthen or remedy them. I meticulously followed his instructions and thus sessions by sessions kept improving and thus ultimately achieved my dream B-School.
It was his mentorship that kept me motivated to move forward in my journey and ultimately reach my goal. I thank Partha Sir and wish him all the success in life.
