A story of success

Pass Out Year: 2006
Current Organization: Jaypee Hotels
Current Designation: IT Manager

 

Belonging to a lower middle class family, my father was a Cashier in the National Textiles Corp. I did my schooling from Patna. I always had high aspirations of getting higher education but due to financial limitations I had to start working at the age of 18. However, I continued my education and did my graduation, BIT from Edexcel, UK in collaboration with IGNOU in 2004. I also did my MCSA and HND along with it.

By the time I completed my graduation I had work experience of 2 years in Marketing and IT. However, I wanted to continue my education and SMU provided me the right platform. Be it in terms of flexibility of courses or classes timings, SMU was the right choice.

The course which I chose (MBA IT) was very comprehensive in nature and combined the strengths of Management and IT together. Overall, it was a unique experience for me. Doing MBA IT from SMU added flavor to my CV and I never looked back since then. I got good acceptance in the industry and I give a lot of credit to SMU for this.

I think SMUDE is a ray of hope for all those distressed students / employees who could not think of pursuing higher studies because of various location and financial limitations. It has been doing an excellent job for many students like me and I believe it will keep on doing wonders for the years to come!
