“Mukund Poddar”

Management consultant

I am a management consultant working in alternate lending domain. I joined Bridgeford in 2004 in KG and completed my entire schooling till 12th from here (passed out in 2017). Next I went to IIT Delhi for my undergraduate degree. I was invited by Yale University, USA and NUS Singapore as a scholar to work on impactful research projects on my summer and winter vacations. Apart from research I also got chance to work with a variety of startups and corporate firms.

When I look back and see what made these things possible, I always remember my teachers and friends from Bridgeford. I certainly had the most amazing phase of my life at school. Apart from the coursework and studies I feel students need to be taught the “attitude” to deal with situations in life and also the art of self-learning which was very well taught to me here. I am indebted to all my wonderful teachers who made me capable enough to pursue my interests. My advice to the young students out there is to maintain discipline in the school.
