A story of success

Pass Out Year: 11-Jul
Current Organization: Clinirx Research Pvt. Ltd. (JK group of companies)
Current Designation: Regulatory Affairs Manager

 

I started my career as a Marketing Representative in a pharmaceutical company. Being the first job and that too in marketing field was like jumping into the lake without knowing the depth of pond and no knowledge of swimming.

The initial few months were very tough but then I started to understand the nuances of the job. It didn’t take a long time for me to realize that to move up the corporate ladder one must possess a professional degree. For an undergraduate like me, there were many obstacles to overcome. Doing some research on the internet I zeroed in on an MBA course of SMU. The course material, study material and the option of online and real time help to my queries gave me the necessary confidence to go for it.

I took up an MBA mainly to expand my subject knowledge but the richness and depth of the course content helped me gain much more. Dramatic turn at workplace. During the last six months of doing my MBA, I got promoted from Research Associate to Regulatory Affairs Manager. That was a tough time when the company was giving the golden handshake to many employees in practically all departments.

I wish my story encourages other aspirants to pursue their dreams as SMU helped me pursue mine.
