Syed Sufiya MBA '21, Placed at General Mills
My SIOM experience was fantastic and a memory to treasure for a lifetime. I chose to pursue an MBA in Operations Management from SIOM after 2.5 years of working experience in Supply Chain and Logistics Industry, with an aim to accelerate my professional career. SIOM undoubtedly was my first choice since it has always been recognised as one of the leading premier institutes for Operations Management, distinguished by its industry-oriented curriculum and leading operations excellence. The curriculum designed is in line with industry requirements and exhibits a fine balance between theory and implementation. Courses like Capstone business simulation, Six Sigma black belt projects and Research Paper publication helped me get an exposure of the practical industrial aspects.
In addition to this, SIOM provided me with comprehensive networking opportunities and peer interactions via proactive participation in clubs, committees, corporate activities, guest lectures, live projects, summer internships, alumni interaction and flagship events. I learned a great deal about contributing towards the welfare of society by being part of SPANDAN committee, the Social Service wing of SIOM.
Even during the most uncertain and turbulent pandemic times SIOM helped me expand my horizons, and established the foundations for success in my career by leveraging technology and providing virtual assistance as a result of which, I successfully bagged the Summer Internship Project and Pre-Placement offer by the FMCG Giant General Mills.
I appreciate my entire SIOM family who guided, shaped and helped me pave the way towards achieving my goals and evolve as an empathetic leader.
Once a SIOMite, always a SIOMite!!
