After having heard and read a lot about the “Biocon-KGI certificate in Biosciences” from various sources, I was finally at the Academy on 11th Jan 2016 being inducted into the Batch 6 of this unique program. With an intent to groom my professional skills, I started my research to apply to the best institutes that would offer me this opportunity. I found Biocon Academy to be the most suitable match for what I was looking for i.e. it had the perfect combination of Academic Modules conducted by the faculty from an International Institute like KGI, California, US and hands on learning sessions conducted by Subject Matter Experts from Biocon.
On the day of the orientation, I was walking towards the Biocon House, with all the glittery dreams built up till now. I would be lying, if I say I was not nervous. I was scared to bits and the anxiety of new place was gripping me as well. But with these emotions, were coupled with confidence of being chosen to be a part of this program and experiencing a positive change in my career going ahead.
Everyone in the class was hesitant to interact and talk. But, the atmosphere in the room was full of enthusiasm. The basic interactions with the alumni broke the ice. Within no time, we all gelled very well. Interactions with the Biocon Academy team took us to the next level of confidence and positivity. An inspiring and warm welcome note from Ms. Bindu, Mr. Easwaran, Ms. Meghana made us feel at home.
After the first day at the academy, I was pretty much sure that the next four months were going to be a roller coaster ride full of excitement, learning and challenges. It’s going to be trained to be a future leader as team work is the key for all the projects/assignments. I was sure that all my hopes were bang on target!! “Oh yes, I had made the right choice” by leaving my current job and joining Biocon Academy.
I believe, Biocon academy is a platform which forces you to move out of your comfort zone and makes you think differently and prepares you to be presented on the world stage.
