A story of success

Pass Out Year: 2012
Current Organization: Self Employed
Current Designation: Accounting Consultant

 

Initially I faced a struggle for a good job for a long time. But when I heard about the post graduate programs at SMU-DE and the flexibility they offered I decided to do my MBA. Maybe that would end my career struggle! Doing my MBA brought out my entrepreneurial skills. Things changed when I was sent to the US for an onsite assignment for 2 years.

A time came when I had to decide whether to fully focus on my job (as I had got a promotion) or take up study through distance education. I decided to do my MBA. It needed a lot of hard work but it was all worth it! While doing my MBA in Finance I was able to start my own Accounting Consultancy firm. And my business started to flourish. I also started getting good job offers. I thankfully chose to do my post graduation that helped give me a career boost.
