Adjusting to the Company Culture for fresh MBA starting Work

Ms. Abeera Baig of Coca-Cola, and alumna of our MBA program of 2015-16 paid a visit to the Lahore School on the 10th of February and delivered a session to our MBA participants on how to adjust to the new culture post-graduation in their first employing company. Abeera has been working for Coca-Cola for almost three years in Channel and Trade marketing, and now in Route to Market (RTM).


She explained why the MTO programs are so important for the MBA graduates, as even though these are contractual in nature, one gets to meet the leadership of the company, and learn from various departments.

She advised the students to focus on their CVs and customize them according to the words that they think will be searched by the employer. She also shared her views and made many suggestions on how to do well in the interview.

How does one learn about a company’s culture? There is overt communication through orientation programs, written values and various policies. But one has a lot to learn based on one’s own effort and one’s observing of the norms. She advised the students to gel in and to learn from the others. She shared her insights on how to manage one’s peers and focus on one’s work.

Abeera spent considerable time on preparing our students on how to manage their bosses. One had to manage one’s boss with patience.

Her session was very well received and the students asked her a large number of questions on women empowerment, on boss management, on doing better in the interview, on learning various professional skills etc. She answered these questions almost every single time by sharing an example.

The Lahore School is proud of its alumni and welcomes them to share their insights with our MBA and undergraduate students.
