Preethi Abraham from January 2020 batch who is about to join Brandeis International Business School in the US shares her experience till now-

“Since I have always dreamt about pursuing my masters in the US, I felt that the GMP program was the right choice for me. By joining this program, I got an opportunity to become a part of the SPJIMR family for a duration of 6 months. I kickstarted my journey at the GMP program from February 2020, and it has truly been an exhilarating journey. For the first one month, we got an opportunity to study within the campus but due to the COVID crisis, we continued our studies via the online mode. However, in spite of having classes online, the learning process was intense yet engaging. The subjects which are taught during the GMP program have truly given us a foundation about management and quantitative based subjects, and these learnings will surely enable us to have an edge over others who opt for studying abroad directly. Looking forward to the next step of the journey in the US”.
