Background

Imran Selim was born in Bangladesh, a small country in South Asia. When Imran speaks about his native country he mentions that “Bangladesh is a country of cultural diversity and famous for its festival. But what makes Bangladesh is its people and natural beauty. Bangladeshi people are known for their hospitality and will always welcome you with a smiling face”.

Imran is currently pursuing a double degree with a Master in Business Analytics and a Master in Business Administration. He constantly says that “Joining OSU has been one of the best decision of his life so far. All the faculties, staff, students have had a profound impact on me. Now I understand what the power of personnel really means”.

Best memories/experiences at OSU 

During his time at OSU, the double degree student mentions that Participating in the Homecoming Parade with Coaches versus Cancer is one of the best memories at OSU. It was a great experience to spend time with the families and kids who are fighting against cancer. The event gave the kids and their families a day without worries. I was also motivated by seeing how courageous the kids are, how they never give up”.

Accomplishments and Hobbies

Selim has always been very active in all of his extracurricular activities. He won the award for outstanding MBA Student, as well as 2nd place at Accelerate OSU Business Plan Competition, both in 2018. He also was awarded the Outstanding Student Certificate SAS and OSU Marketing Analytics and served as Vice President of Financials for the MBA Association in 2017.

As his hobbies he mentions that he enjoys traveling, hiking, swimming and playing table tennis.

Lastly Imran shares small story “In 2016, along with three other friends, I was hiking in the Himalayas from Bhutan. Our destination was a pass which was 4400 meters above sea level. As we were going up, two of my friends started feeling sick due to high altitude. They didn’t have any alternatives other than going back to base. The other friend and I were devastated as they left, but we continued our journey in the face of all adversities and finally made it to the top. The experience of hiking in challenging tails has taught me never to give up and keep going forward in the face of challenging and adverse situations”.
