Sarthy Vadnerkar, a senior business analyst believes that MBA with global exposure has helped him in getting an edge in his professional career...
Tell us about yourself?
I am currently working with Cognizant Technology Solutions, Pune as a senior business analyst. I have an overall work experience of over 5 years with over 3 organizations, some of them being Oracle Inc. & Keane Inc in areas of Sales, Account Management, pre-sales, relationship Management etc. I have done my graduation in Engineering from Anna University, Chennai and MBA from SP Jain School of Global Management, Dubai - Singapore.
Why did you go for a degree in MBA in global exposure?
Since this was a 1 yr programme and with an extremely focussed approach packed with super specializations, I found this to be a good fit. Also, the twin city model was fine but more than that the fact that you are away from the industry for only a year was more than good a reason for me to take this up.
How are the placements after pursuing MBA in global exposure?
Unlike another Indian B-School, they do not guarantee placements. But then nearly all the students do end up getting placed. A lot of effort has to be put in from the students end as well to secure a job.
How is the course helping you in your career?
The course has been helpful in numerous ways. Since I had a fair background to the course that i was taking up, and coupled with the flair for Marketing, I was able to relate to the subjects a lot better. Apart from that, it is up to every student to have clarity about their careers and apply their learning’s to wherever they are currently working.
What is the best part of the course for you?
The case study approach, focussed approach, 1 year intensive program.
What parts of the course do you find challenging?
The span of every course is very short, about 2 weeks or so. It does get rather hectic at times. Getting accustomed as quickly as possible is the key. But then you don't really have too much time for that too.
What is the scope of MBA in global exposure?
It certainly is a different idea. But end of the day it is left to the students to gain from it. Spending considerable time in different countries does add immense value in terms of not only knowledge, but also gives you a hands on experience of working there as a part of the internships.
Is there any advice you would like to give students who are interested in taking the course?
The students must make sure they are aware about the budget required for such a program. Also, the most important thing is to have clarity of goals.
