UMA believes the business leaders of tomorrow are created, not born and equips its students with cutting-edge skills, enabling them to make an immediate impact in the corporate world.
Mr. Bikramjit Banerjee, Placement Head for UMA, says, “When we define placement for UMA, it is not just about placing students in companies. We have other priorities. We are creating the next generation of leaders and not merely working professionals.”
The UMA placement office is highly aware of what is required to succeed in the corporate world. With the business sector in a constant state of flux, it is more important than ever for students to be specifically trained to adapt to the changing landscape with a skill set that makes them both valuable and flexible.
Graduates, MBAs and MCAs are trained in all facets of business so their contributions are almost instantaneous. The curriculum at UMA is designed by corporate experts who know what it takes to become the leaders of the future. Balancing theoretical lessons with practical training, students work with industry professionals who serve as mentors and provide an introduction into the business sector.
Upon completion of a degree programme, UMA offers placement services to students, easing their transition from student to professional. This placement involves giving students a host of career opportunities.
Focussing on all types of industries, including small and medium enterprises, UMA places students in businesses where there is a strong demand for managerial talent.
Working with many companies, UMA takes pride in placing students with organisations where their skills will be most appreciated and utilised.
Placement Co-ordinator Ms. Shayori Banerjee says, “The economic scenario is challenging, but we are trying to do everything to give our students a big start to their career.”
UMA knows what it takes to make it in the business sector. With the landscape changing rapidly, there is a need for managers who can thrive in such an environment and UMA is the place where these managers are created.
