Student Leadership

Leadership is an important core value at JSBF. We try to inculcate the same in our students from first year itself. Students are given opportunities to hone and exhibit their leadership skills throughout the programme. One such initiative at JSBF is the Student Council.

JSBF Student Council is an entirely student run body and is part of bigger JGU Student Council. It gives students a platform to initiate activities of their interest on campus or have a voice in matters of concern to them.

Aaron Anish Cherian

President

It seems quite surprising to me that I am writing about my experience at JGU, for in my head, it feels like only yesterday I walked in with my suitcase to settle here. The first semester of college flew by in the blink of an eye, where I made friends and memories I would cherish forever. Being part of the founding batch of JSBF, I was quite skeptical as to how everything would be and whether I would be able to achieve my academic and other goals in this college. Needless to say, it has been a great journey so far. Highly educated and interactive faculty members, industry structured courses, interdisciplinary learning etc. offer me with so much more than just a regular B.Com.(Hons.) degree. The University allows us to choose what we want to learn, take subjects from any of the other 7 schools, specialize in our field of choice and gain extra tutelage on whatever we fancy, making it a wholesome learning experience. The vibrant buzz of this beautiful campus – be it in the field of sports, dance, theatre, music, photography and the numerous events that keep happening day in day out – makes it a haven for all who reside here. I’m really glad I took this opportunity to come here and I urge anyone interested to do the same and be part of this fantastic experience.

Sarthak Aneja

Vice President

I am Sarthak Aneja, the Vice-President of the student council at Jindal School of Banking & Finance (JSBF). I am glad to be a part of the student council and at the same time I'm truly happy to be of someone's use when they need me. I am thankful to the JSBF community for this opportunity and immense support which has helped me grow my leadership skills. If you ever need me, be it regarding academia or not, I am just a call away!

Lavanya Joneja

Cultural Secretary

I have always been a very passionate person who loves communicating with people and organising events, and hence I stood up for the post of cultural secretary of the student council at Jindal School of Banking & Finance (JSBF). Being the cultural secretary of JSBF has been an amazing experience. One of the youngest schools of the university, JSBF has provided me a platform which brings out my creativity and has helped me gain so much exposure. The close interaction with students and professors has made me learn so much. I am proud to be a bridge between the students and professors and working towards creating an environment where the students and faculty members have a sense of belongingness for the community.

Roli Bansal

General Secretary & Treasurer

Being the General Secretary and Treasurer of the student council at Jindal School of Banking & Finance (JSBF), I have learned a lot! From meeting new people and looking at a whole different world, to getting an opportunity to be an Election Commissioner at COGSASH and working with senior faculty members and council members from different schools has been a great learning experience. I have been able to develop good working relationship, trust, leadership and teamwork skills and has been able to represent myself as one who can take charge and get things done, and most importantly, I have learnt time management. Being a student council member is not only about the duties that comes along but also managing work outside the council. While this post brought lots of extra work on top of the academic workload, being the General Secretary and Treasurer at JSBF is one of my top experiences at JGU.

Every time someone asks me about my experience at JGU, I look back to July 2018, since it was the first time, I visited the campus. On our way to campus, I told my father that I would never take admission in this university. But the global curriculum, interdisciplinary education, industry collaborations, skill-based learning, highly educated and experienced faculty provided by JSBF brought me here. Initially, I was unsure as to how the things would go being a part of the founding batch, but as time passed, everything seemed to fall in place and it’s hard to realize that it has been 2 years already! The B.Com. (Hons.) degree provided here is not an ordinary degree. Its global and interdisciplinary elements make it different from every other B.Com. (Hons.) degree.

The fests such as Biswamil, Bite, BizNest, and Magnus provide you with a great opportunity to know people from different schools and get to know about their curriculum. Also, you learn a lot about different cultures through people coming from different regions around the globe. The lively environment of the campus keeps you cheered up the whole day. I am so glad that I got the opportunity to be a part of JSBF and would encourage people to come here and experience the same!
