I felt the need to ac­quire cut­ting-edge busi­ness skills

India Today - - SCHOOL SPECIAL - Vinay Upad­hyay Upad­hyay, 30, worked for six years with TCS. He will grad­u­ate from IIM-CIN 2014.

Af­ter six years in the in­dus­try, go­ing back to school was not an easy de­ci­sion. It meant giv­ing up a good salary and po­si­tion. But the dream of mak­ing it big in the cor­po­rate world egged me on. In my years with Tata Con­sul­tancy Ser­vices, I had ac­quired ba­sic knowl­edge of how busi­nesses work. As a mid­ca­reer pro­fes­sional mov­ing into more im­por­tant roles, I felt the need to ac­quire knowl­edge of cut­ting-edge busi­ness skills that would en­able me to ex­cel in lead­er­ship roles. So I en­rolled for the post grad­u­ate pro­gramme for ex­ec­u­tive ed­u­ca­tion at IIM-C. Also, net­work­ing is key to suc­cess in the cor­po­rate world and an MBA ed­u­ca­tion of­fers a unique op­por­tu­nity to con­nect with a large pool of ta­lented and mo­ti­vated in­di­vid­u­als.
