Hi ,

Thanks for your interest.

MBA will add to the business side of my profession by giving me a platform to see leadership from various standpoints, by giving me an opportunity to learn aspects of business such as finance, mergers and acquisitions, etc through case studies and from experts and peers from diverse industries. All this is difficult through traditional career path in my industry. MBA will give me an enriching ecosystem (peers, professors, alumni, networks, etc) and, most importantly, an opportunity to steer my career towards more of strategic roles than operational.


My Short term goal is - I want to continue my journey in the Automotive Industry, and lead global car programs in emerging markets. With the experience of working for Electric cars, I want to develop mobility solutions that are sustainable and economic.

My long term goal is - I see myself as a CEO/a strategic decision maker who, with her strong technical background and business acumen, would lead the manufacturing firm.


Thanks,
Shaheen
