A 2010 batch alumni, Manpreet is employed with Mancer Consulting Services, the organization that offered him the position of management trainee during the campus recruitment. Since then, he has grown to the position of Team Lead/Assistant Manager.

To be employable and further grow in your domain, you need specialized learning and exposure,such asthe education you can receive while pursuing an MBA. A well designed program like the one Jaipuria offers can create huge impact.” However, it’s not just the program; the complete ensemble, including the faculty, infrastructure, co-curricular activities and the soft skill training contribute to the development of student into skilled professionals. “My journey with Jaipuria was very good, Manpreet tells us. “The program polished my skills, nurtured me in the best possible way, and gave me great exposure to a high-quality business education.
