A story of success

Pass Out Year: 2010
Current Organization: TCL
Current Designation: Network Planning & Implementation

 

After my graduation as an IT Engineer I have been working with TCL India for about 7 years.

I was promoted from a Trainee to a Project Leader during the first 5 years of my tenure, but in the past couple of years, I realized that my growth was getting stagnant.

The biggest drawback was the lack of an MBA degree, which would help me get into the Management Team. My colleagues with lesser experience but with a management degree were better recognized than me.

That was when I decided to get into Management Education. But then there was another problem. I had a family to look after so I could not quit my job for a Full Time MBA program. During my search for a Part Time program I came across the SMU-DE program and it instantly occurred to me that that this is what I was looking for.

Now, after completing the program, I am geared-up to move on to the next level of the ladder and can expand my role to management than just being an IT engineer.

I thank SMUDE for this amazing learning experience and would always recommend this program for anyone with a desire to learn and grow.
