CMR MBA programme has stood in good stead in my career through global organisations such as Dell-EMC, HCL and SAP. The confidence I gained in my MBA programme helped me in handling leadership positions – as a Regional Head, Country Head and as APAC Head – with great finesse and success. I look back to the time I spent in CMR with immense joy and pride.

The CMR MBA programme has made me more creative and improved my critical thinking ability. This has helped me in my career over the past 8 years, when I have been challenged numerous time to tackle problems from different angles and to look at issues from various perspectives. I strongly believe that being creative allows you to see things from a different angle and it helps you become a better problem solver.
My MBA journey introduced me to tools, methodologies, and processes that gave me the means to solve a problem in different ways. It allowed me to look inward at my own organization and find ways to improve efficiency and streamline processes.
The internships and projects that I undertook during the course made me industry-ready, and enabled me to find a job in an international setting. I currently work for Bank of America as a Senior Operations Analyst – Corporate Actions, Bank of America, Dallas, TX, USA.
Deciding to pursue my MBA at CMR has been one of the best decisions I’ve made. It has made me more confident, more articulate, bolder, and has made me a better leader.
