“I certainly could not have credibly fulfilled the position I currently hold without having invested in my learning. The most important thing I learned at Aegis is that areas like Marketing, HR, Finance is equally important as technical knowledge, which I as a technical person never knew. My understanding of various functional areas learned in the MPTM program contributed tremendously in my growth and real life learning”
