As we took the elevator to reach Mindteck Business Services floor where Shreyasee Sinha, the Project Manager – Global Service Delivery & Infra sits, we were mulling over our last encounter with her. It was the annual alumni meet of Jaipuria Institute of Management. We remembered her as the topper of Class 2010 with a voracious appetite for success. She had spoken to us for full 30 minutes about what it takes to make one’s mark felt in the domain of Sales and Marketing- post a PGDM education and what a delightful conversation it was! We were expecting to meet the same person- only more successful this time. And as the elevator door slid open- there she was, extending her hand to welcome us once again.
Shreyasee has been the kind of student at the B-school who never wanted to settle for anything but perfection. She left no opportunity slip her by for the two years of her PGDM. In fact, alumnus Swapnil Tiwari and Shreyasee had together initiated the first ever Marketing Club of Jaipuria Institute of Management, Noida which is now one of the most active student driven committees of the B-school and the first thing Shreyasee asked as we stepped into her office was- “how is the club working now? Are we in good hands?”
Having specialized in Marketing, Shreyasee’s work primarily revolved around the domain of Sales and Marketing. She started with All e Technologies and went on climbing the subsequent rungs of the ladder. With a very cohesive outlook towards problems and their solutions, in no time did she start making her natural passion for the domain translate into successful projects’ delivery for client like Pepsico.
Shreyasee’s perception towards Marketing as a domain is straightforward and simple. “You got to be agile and analytic in your approach if you want to make room for yourself in this space. There’s intense competition and of course, it is not going to be easy ever, so whatever you do, you got to do it very well or you will remain mediocre as a performer,” she explains. And having spent 2 eventful years with All E and 6 years at ESQ as Assistant Manager, Shreyasee moved to Mindteck that provides product-engineering solutions and IT services to several Fortune 100 companies, universities and government agencies across the world, in January, 2019.
As we asked her about her fondest memories during Jaipuria days, she recalls fondly about the first outing with her friends at the B-school. “We were 12 of us who went to Shipra Mall in Noida to bond over burgers. We spent hours chatting, losing track of time and by the time we started for the hostel- there was no commutation available. We remember walking 2kms at a stretch to reach campus and the friendship we forged in that walk- stayed with us throughout.” According to Shreyasee, “Jaipuria has all the ingredients it takes to help you with the correct Launchpad for your career. Even a decade back when we were attending the B-school, our professors used to adopt some of the most innovative forms of teaching to make the classroom experience exceptional. I worked with them for a long time even after graduating- on various projects and I must say, their unique perspective to subjects and sectors helped me evolve as a professional,” concludes the alumnus who feels extremely proud to see how far her B-school has come over the years.
