With 22 years of experience in banking and finance, I find myself seeking new horizons within my organization. Opting for a premium institution like TAPMI for an online MBA has been a deliberate choice to gain profound insights and elevate my career prospects. This program, tailored for working professionals, provides a valuable opportunity in enhancing my career further.
A few years back, I got initiated into the stock market and took a strong interest in exploring it. However, there was a gap in the input and returns, and the main reason has been my lack of professional knowledge in the domain. I believe this online MBA in BKFS will help me deepen my knowledge and explore career prospects of my interest. The program curriculum is industry-relevant. Engaging with fellow professionals has proven to be an enriching experience. I hope to secure a position in a leading investment banking firm after the completion of this program.
With 3 years of hands-on experience in the financial sector, I want to broaden my exposure across different facets of the finance industry through this online MBA. The program’s flexibility has been a game-changer, allowing me to balance work and family commitments seamlessly. My goal is to climb up my career ladder and explore leadership positions.
