Current Designation:Senior Software Engineer

"Be open to learning from your colleagues rather than playing the role of sole problem solver", I belive the same and experiencing the same here.
The way of learning and real life application of the modules; with first-class professors, the ability to learn and explore new environments, networking across cultures, and of course, proving to myself I can do this. Not only I am growing as a person, but I heightened self-awareness, self-esteem, and abilities in leadership. The faculty is able to impart knowledge with a balanced view of what is really seen at the corporate level.
It automatically elevates the level of classroom discussions and case study analysis. Candidates would have already handled several live situations and would be in a great position to understand the course of action, as against the fresher who may not be able to imagine the same.
