A story of success

Pass Out Year: 2011
Current Organization: IBM India
Current Designation: QUALITY EXECUTIVE

 

After graduation as an IT Engineer, I have been working with IBM India for about 7 years. I was promoted from a trainee to a Project Leader in the first 5 years of my tenure but from thereon I saw my career stagnating.

The lack of an MBA degree was stated as a reason why was being kept behind in all my appraisals and not only my career came to a standstill – my confidence also took a beating. I was determined to pursue my MBA but because of my full time work I wasn’t sure if it was worth it to give up job to pursue a full time MBA. After speaking to several colleagues and my family, I felt it worth the while to pursue a part time MBA through a distance education programme.

After sifting through several options I decided on SMUDE. It’s distance education was suitable to my situation where I could continue working while pursuing my studies. Flexible study timings and classes, coupled with online examinations helped me focus on my studies better without having to skip work.

I am glad and thankful that SMU-DE I was able to give a boost to my career, pull it out of stagnation and make a fruitful career. I recommend them highly to anyone who wants to grow in their career.
