Always being fascinated by science and technology, I consciously took up engineering studies and successfully completed Bachelors in Technology (Electronics and Communication Engineering) from India. On completion of the course, I was recruited on campus at Kale Consultants as a programmer analyst. Here, I obtained vital work experience in the software industry and the 18 months of stay in the company was big learning opportunity for me. It was at this stage of my career that I took a liking for the management aspect of a business apart from the technicalities and hence I decided to make a career shift towards management.
For this, I chose Audencia-Nantes School of Management in France to get a taste of French culture, European business system and true international exposure along with students from more than 25 other countries. My experience at Audencia has been truly rewarding and has proven to be a right choice for management education. The International Masters in Management (IMM) curriculum suggested the logical approach of implementing the theory through practical projects. The structured methodology based on planned lectures and case studies with intensive activities on team building, leadership, presentations, out of class training proved to be the best engagement with knowledge. I have had the chance to study courses like Operations and Supply Chain Management, Project Management, Financial Management, International Marketing, International Business, European Business, New Product Development and many more.
The opportunity of working with DCNS in form of an intern in the field of supply chain management of spares for foreign navies helped me in gaining the insight into the complexity and the importance of supply chain management. Moreover, my Master’s Dissertation “Role of Supply Chain Management: Best Practices in Naval Defence” required the preparation of the literature with the help various academic journals and articles providing the detailed and in-depth understanding of the theoretical aspects of supply chain management and also purchasing, logistics, and through-life support activities encompassed by supply chain. The motivation of associating my research with DCNS in the form of case study has proven to be the best engagement in understanding the business processes and the ways of managing the supply chain operations.
