Graduate Mr. Saugata Bhattacharya shared: “Thank you 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’ve taken, and honestly, I was skeptical before signing up. But just a few weeks into the course, I realized it was the right decision. At the time of registration I was working as a Deputy Manager (Project) with over 17 years of experience in the construction industry. I was managing projects without any formal project management knowledge or training. Rigorous training from the faculty and valuable input from my peers during the six-month Post Graduate Program (PGP) in Project Management helped me gain a broader perspective of project management.

I am pleased to share with you today that immediately after completing the Post Graduate Program (PGP) in Project Management, which includes modules for the PMP certification, I received a letter from my company’s HR department promoting me to next level, e.g. , Project Manager, and I have now become the general manager of a very high profile government project.

“I would like to mention that the course modules are absolutely perfect for industry professionals like myself who have gained some knowledge through experience but require formal training to accelerate their professional development. Thanks again.”
