Hyderabad, August 30, 2023 – In a remarkable feat, Ms. Malissa Fernandes, a bright and accomplished student of the BBA 2023 batch at NMIMS Hyderabad, has been appointed as the Deputy Manager of Corporate Communications at Axis Bank, securing a groundbreaking salary package of 10.05 Lakhs INR. This achievement not only marks a significant milestone in the academic journey of Malissa, who is known for her exceptional academic achievements and communication skills but also gives her an opportunity to make significant contributions to Axis Bank’s communication strategies.

As a goal-driven individual, Malissa’s aspirations in the field of Corporate Communications were evident from the beginning of her journey. She is a distinguished graduate of NMIMS Hyderabad who has earned herself a reputation as a high-achiever with her exceptional academic performance which consistently landed her on the Dean’s and Toppers’ lists. Her exceptional communication skills, coupled with her comprehensive understanding of marketing tactics and media objectives, played a pivotal role in setting her apart from other candidates. The interview process—an AI-based video interview with a set of instructions and time limits—was uniquely challenging. Moreover, Malissa’s outstanding knowledge and time efficiency skills enabled her to navigate this unconventional interview method with remarkable success.

Her journey towards success began when the NMIMS placements department shared about the Axis Bank’s ARISE Program with the entire cohort. As a marketing student, the program’s focus on domains like corporate communication piqued her interest. Her standout performance during the interview process was attributed to her impressive GPA, communication skills, and unwavering dedication.

Reflecting on her educational journey at NMIMS Hyderabad, Malissa remarked, “The education at NMIMS is a level higher than other universities, and everybody can agree on that. This makes all of us industry-ready and practical enough to face the corporate world. Coming to my specialisation in marketing, I was trained under Dr. Ashish Biswas, Program Chairperson, who made sure to teach us through case studies, real-time examples, and presentations, which ensured learning was not monotonous while also helping us understand the industry very well.”

Commenting on the student’s achievement, the Director of NMIMS Hyderabad, Dr. Siddhartha Ghosh, said, “Education is not just about imparting knowledge; it’s about nurturing curiosity, fostering critical thinking, and inspiring a lifelong quest for excellence. At NMIMS Hyderabad, we are committed to providing an environment that empowers our students to embrace challenges, innovate fearlessly, and contribute meaningfully to the world. The efforts of Dr. Ashish Biswas, Program Chairperson along with Mr. Ashish Pal and the Placement Team at NMIMS Hyderabad, are commendable in guiding students towards success.”

Dr. Ashish Biswas, Program Chairperson, NMIMS Hyderabad, expressed his belief in a well-rounded education, stating, “NMIMS allows students to run clubs and committees, and Malissa headed the Newsletter club which successfully launched two newsletters in the academic year 2022-23. NMIMS provides a 360-degree holistic learning experience. Industry talks and connections are also integral parts of the training at NMIMS. These activities are managed by the Placement Cell team to ensure subject knowledge and skills are well imparted to the students.”
