Testimonial: MSc ISE Graduate Launches Start-up

I have always been passionate about engineering and have a strong entrepreneurial spirit. I had been searching for a Master’s program which would equip me with the knowledge and confidence to bring my business ideas to life. I choose GGSB’s MSC ISE based on its international reputation and the highly informative course structure.

The program proved to be a very enriching learning experience. The diversity of the group in terms of nationality and background of expertise was a real advantage and enhanced my knowledge of international business practices. Another highlight was the Live Business Case which included a visit to the ROCHE European Headquarters in Switzerland. It was very insightful to gain knowledge from top business developers and also to better understand the harsh realities of the business world for an aspiring entrepreneur.

Within 3 months of completing the first year of taught studies at GGSB I was selected by an innovative robotics startup firm in Spain to join them as the company’s Product Manager.

In parallel to this position, I am developing my own startup project ‘ProID’ with my team located in India. ProID is specialized in innovative product design with a number of international projects already underway and is on the lookout for new partnerships across Europe and Middle East.  Recently, Grenoble Ecole de Management’s start up accelerator - IncubaGEM, selected and incubated ProID.

To me, the world is continually changing, not by itself, but through the ideas of entrepreneurs worldwide. Having graduated from MSc ISE has given me the know-how and the network that I need to be a part of this phenomenon and I intend to fully exploit this opportunity
