Sample Certificate


Alumni Speak

Anirudh Agarwal Chief Architect, Siemens Healthcare

SMP helped me to get recognition within the organization. Lots of business data has started making sense to me now. The program has also given me the motivation to start my own business sometime.

Debanjan Dutta Vice President, Accenture

As senior practitioners in the industry, we sometimes lose sight of the fact that shedding the baggage of experience and getting ready to unlearn is a key to meaningful future learning. SMP gave me that holistic learning experience. SMP also helped me form and cement
long-lasting relationships with fellow batchmates and industry peers.

T P Singh Sales Director – India, Middle East, CIS, Turkey, S Africa at Flir Systems

With overall experience of more than 20 years, I am presently dealing with Electrical Power, Automation, Law Enforcement, R&D, Oil & Gas and Manufacturing industries. Halfway through the SMP, I got an opportunity to switch from my previous employment. Whatever I learnt during this program before appearing in the interview, helped me to get this much better opportunity with very high responsibilities.

Gaurav Shukla Associate Vice President, Reliance Broadcast Network Ltd.

SMP has connected me to lots of business leaders, given me a platform to learn and refresh my knowledge, and empowered me with management knowhow. SMP helped me to view things from a much broader perspective and has helped me prepare for my next
leadership role.
