By Shubham Mahale. SBUP MBA Class of 2021-23
Hello readers, I am Shubham Sanjay Mahale. I would love to share my journey at SBUP till date and I hope you would enjoy it.
I am from Dhule, Maharashtra. A very interesting place. My family comprises of Anuja, my little sister, Mr. Sanjay Mahale, my dad, Mrs. Arati Mahale, my mom, Lakshmi Mahale my Grandma and of course me. My Dad is a service man in sugar factory at Gujarat and my mom is a beautician and house wife. My sister is in her Junior College and she’s great at her studies. I’ve completed my SSC from Chavara High school, Dhule and all my education after that was done in Pune, Maharashtra.
I completed Junior College with Commerce background from MIT, Alandi Pune. I did Graduation from D.Y. Patil, Pimpri, Pune. I was enjoying my graduation life in my college very well but as you all know COVID-19 strike us and I had to return home Dhule in my 2nd year and unfortunately my graduation completed online. Just like most of the people,
I was confused what to do after graduation because I wanted to go for Acting School but I wanted to get settled by earning at a stable career too! After a lot of thinking about what to do next, I finally decided that lets go for an MBA degree which will provide me the necessary skill sets and network to grow.
I heard about SBUP from a friend he was actually alumni of SBUP, Mayur Patil,who has completed his MBA in 2021. He was from Balaji Institute of International Business (BIIB) and his specialization was in International Business he got placed in TCS and was working when we met. He told me how strictSBUPis and how it will help me to build my personality as well as my career. When I shared with my parents about doing MBA from SBUP, they were happy. But my father wanted to visit the SBUP Campus himself.
I’ve auditioned for Roadies Real Heroes in 2018 and unfortunately, I wasn’t ready yet, but I don’t regret the experience because there were a lot of things to learn and I gained more contacts and confidence too.I tried for Roadies Revolution again, I went ahead and qualified for the PI round but PI round was more difficult and I failed again. But that didn’t stop me. I still tried participating in a lot more dance competitions on university level and much more! The biggest achievement till now is Time Fresh Face Season 12, where I qualified till the Semi-Final.
So we visited the SBUP campus and after interacting with the officials and seeing the campus in person my father was convinced that SBUP is the right Institute for me. After registrations, group discussions, essay writing and personal interview I was given admission at Balaji Institute of Management and Human Resources Development (BIMHRD).
Taking about my Interest I was always passionate about trying different things at least once such as acting, dancing, reality shows and much more in entertainment field.
There was an article above the it in the “Times of India” and I felt wonderful about it! My efforts are reaping fruits for me is what I would say. After joining SBUP,my life changed for the better and personality developed further. I experienced changes in me regarding punctuality, discipline and responsibility. I feel honoured to be the part of the huge SBUP community and I hope to take advantage of this opportunity and build a successful careers like the thousands of alumni from SBUP.
