complaints of OEM’s using various QC tools. Also I was assigned

indirect reports and reported to Head-Piston Ring Business Unit. Here
I learnt about Process Engineering and Quality concepts and various
systems like TS-16949, TPM, QS-9000,ISO 9001,ISO 14000.
After this preliminary experience in Process Quality and Engineering I
decided to move on to Learning and Managing the Quality aspects of a

included the Quality Assurance & Control of Scooter

production levels were met with; while simultaneously performing
safety, quality, cost, and inventory management within operating

important building block of my career and groomed my managerial
capacity as an Operations Lead. This was coupled with my prior
knowledge of Quality, Process Engineering, Systems, Plant Expansion
and New Model Development.
Here at IMI, I am getting firsthand knowledge about the holistic role
of a Marketing Manager with a background in Manufacturing. With
credits in courses like Rural Marketing, Retail Marketing, Integrated
I had a few queries in Mind
1) How relevant is this course for me?
2) Will it add any extra value addition to my academics since the
course curriculum is more of a general MBA which I'am pursuing
3) What are the job opportunities after this course?
4) Whats are the prospects of returning back to India.?
5) what would be the total expenditure?
6) What is the Ranking of this university & the course?
I would be really thankful if you advise me like a younger brother
rather than a brand ambassador of the college and the course.
Also please mail me any chat ID that you have so that I could have an
indept discussion with you.
Looking forward to hearing from you soon.
