Addressing the post-graduates at the convocation, Professor Traci Hess, Associate Dean – Graduate and Professional Programs, Isenberg School of Management, University of Massachusetts, said, “I am delighted to be a part of this convocation ceremony for this group of hard-working and meritorious students from the PG programs of Simplilearn and UMass Amherst. I could not be happier to see students benefit from these expert, upskilling offerings and come out with such flying colours. Focused learning and remaining steadfast towards your goals while applying these newly acquired skills will help each one of you to attain professional success. I hope that all of you fulfill your professional goals in the years to come. Congratulations to all of the graduates and welcome to the UMass Amherst family.”
Graduating learner Mr Saugata Bhattacharya shared: “Thank you to Simplilearn and UMass for having me and giving me this opportunity to share my learning experience with you today. This is the first online course I have taken, and honestly, I was skeptical before enrolling. But just a couple of weeks into the course, I realised it was the right decision. At the time of enrolling, I was working as a Deputy Manager (Project) with more than 17 years experience in the construction industry. I was managing projects without any formal knowledge or education in project management. Rigorous training by the faculty and valuable inputs from my peers during the six-months-long Post Graduate Program (PGP) in Project Management helped me garner a broader perspective of project management.
I am happy to share with you today that just after completing the Post Graduate Program (PGP) in Project Management, which includes modules on PMP certification, I got a letter from the HR department of my company, promoting me to the next level, i.e., Project Manager, and I have now become overall in-charge of a very prestigious government project.
“I would like to mention that the course modules are absolutely perfect for industry professionals like me who have gained some knowledge through experience but require formal training for accelerating their professional growth. Thank you once again.”
