MBA

Step into Ahmedabad, a mosaic of rich heritage and modern vibes. Experience a city that offers more than just an academic setting – it's a tale of traditions, emotions, and evocative experiences.


Ahmedabad is a place rich in culture, a city with a glorious past, and a wonderful place for friends and family to hang out. Ahmedabad comes alive at night with its fun at cafes, street food stalls, discos, heritage walks, and movie nights. In addition to Kankaria Lake and Sabarmati Ashram, Ahmedabad is renowned for its wonderful temples, beautiful gardens, and devoted monuments.

I am originally from Bihar and have come to Ahmedabad to study for my MBA at Narayana Business School. Although I had heard of Ahmedabad before, I did not expect to fall in love with the city the way I did.

I mean, who would not love this city? Walking along the Sabarmati River refreshes the mind. I could also travel at night without fear. As a girl, this was new to me. You will not experience power outages, the locals are so friendly, and there are so many vibrant festivals to attend. When we go out with friends, there is almost no traffic. You can try so many distinct types of food when you go out with friends. There is a paan joint we love that has so many varieties of paan that even if you eat one variety every day, you will not have tried it all.

Kankaria Lake is a romantic destination that you should visit with your partner. You will not find anything like it anywhere else. And we have our own Goa in our backyard. Yes, I am referring to Daman and Diu. – Ishika Agarwal Batch (2021 – 2023).
