Jasmeet Singh - MMI Program Takeaways from an Alumnus
Virtual Tours by Students
The following is an computer-generated summary of the video transcript.
Everyone, I'm back on a za follow one to my previous video, I just quickly wanted to share with you some insights on how did my program, the masters of management, off innovation or the end of my program helped me in my day to day activity as a management consultant but also help me and the other rules that I took on as an intern with one of the one of these startups. So the first and foremost thing that you learn that ever my is time management and now that's not a specific course within Ameir. It's something that you will come to learn just the way the program is structured. It's an eight month program, and you will be working and doing like 12 courses throughout the eight months, along with tons of assignment, searching for a job on also making sure that your personal development is met with during the part of the program. So while all of that is happening, the program automatically will kind off push you manage your time, effectively toe, make sure that you prioritize one thing over the other. If it's assignment that's due, and if it's a job that's coming into two days. How do you manage that situation? What's the best way to reach out to both parties? I think the second most important thing that you will learn and this is just because I like that particular courses negotiation. I would say more than 10 to 15 times one way or the other. If your boss says okay, you need to get this done in the next one hour. You have a conflicting meeting for another activity within your company, or there might be like two different meetings that your double cooked on a particular type. It's also important to actually be able to demonstrate it on a daily lives. I think as as part of her mind, you will learn it formally as negotiation is, of course, available, but also in terms off again. My management it'll it'll exactly fritton the value, manage your negotiation skills and hone it moving forward the third thing that I feel as a management consultant, How do you think holistically? Because, uh, this course gives you an open mindset toe. Think from finance angle from accounting from marketing from strategy from big data from analytics. So you were exposed to all these different kind off courses as well as you will be exposed to different kind off guest lecturers helping you deal with person development as well as you know, helping you with your co structure on user experience and what not So it's a mixed bag off a lot of things. I think, um, sometimes, like for me, it didn't intimidate me when I was just thinking about it. At the same time, now that I'm a consultant for that matter, any job role that you will be taking us after you graduate from the mm I I think that holistic point off you with different courses are different. Perspectives thrown at you at one point in patent really kind of pushes you to the end so that you can have those discussions in a management role because, uh, it's a master's program and you're coming from a stem background. So you have already know your technical areas of expertise. Stepping that technical area off expertise with the management document, I think that's that's one of the biggest take back I would see as part of the end of my for the fourth and the final one. I would say the one thing that you will learn is how to manage ambiguity as well as being flexible. I know this might sound cliche, but it's really important to consider because you are You are in a program where every day something new is going to happen. You're going toe, identify or find a new job prospect by doing your job search. You're going toe, make new friends network with new people, and all that is going to happen in eight months, period of time. Uh, we wouldn't even know, like, at least I did not know what I want to get out of the program, and that's what it teaches you like. I never knew I would become a management consultant, but the moment I came in, uh, it quickly kind off gives you enough perspective, all the course instructors, uh, competent enough to teach you on a daily basis how to look at different perspectives, how to deal with that ambiguity because everyone would be stress. Where should which team should I get a job? What should I do it in management line of business and then dealing with that ambiguity is something that will come along the way while you are in the program on the course and structures are definitely going to guide you every point of the day because literally, every day you will be interacting with the course instructors and they'll be guiding you. They'll be supporting you throughout your journey in.
