A story of success

Current Organization: United Spirits Limited (UB Group Co.)
Current Designation: Manager Accounts

 

Like most youngsters, I started my journey with many dreams. The sky was not the limit!

When I started my graduation, my father got retired and could only afford my college fees. Coming from a family of 6 siblings and I being the youngest, it was not easy for me to pursue post-graduation. I had no clue what course to take up & there was nobody to guide me either. As a result, after my graduation I started working to meet my basic needs and expenses.

Learnt a lot on the job, but career growth was getting stagnant

Soon, I got the job of a receptionist in the company with which I work now i.e. the UB Group. With the support of my seniors & colleagues I slowly and steadily started learning accounts & administration work. From the Reception I got transferred to the Accounts Department and there I got the opportunity to learn even more. Over the years, my work got recognition at the level of my seniors as well as my management. But then I began to realize that for the past three to four years my career growth was getting stagnant.

Enriching experience at SMU-DE

Once again I had to decide between continuing my job and taking up a full time MBA program. That's when I heard about SMU-DE making waves in the distance education space. I did not lose time in enrolling for the MBA (Finance) course. The journey and experience through the study process was so enriching. There was guidance at every step, whenever I needed and it helped me to complete my course successfully.

Now, after completing my MBA program, I got another promotion in my company and I am still expanding my role. Needless to mention that my seniors, family and SMU-DE played a big role in helping me achieve my dream.
