Former Global Head, Planet one
Former VP, GLT Ltd.

“The Telecom management program has helped me to accelerate my career growth. I can very well assess the kind of impact Aegis is going to have on the Indian Telecom Sector and the world-wide Telecom Industry as a whole. As a corporate I have to recruit managers and technical people separately. So when I have to depute a person for a project, I have to depute two people separately, which is the biggest limitation for any technological company. If we had one person who can do both things efficiently, then this would be a valuable additional skill. That's where Aegis will fill in the gap.”
