A Student Perspective by WMG Graduate Surya Saha

Recently, at a WMG Open Day, I had the pleasure of meeting WMG Alumnus Surya Saha, a recent WMG MSc graduate from India. Surya was delighted to share his story and talk about his experiences at WMG...

Surya Saha
"I would always say choosing WMG for my masters was the best intelligent decision I have ever made. The course that I enrolled on was the MSc in Management for Business Excellence, the reason behind this was my focus towards quality and excellence in business as a whole.

For me, my journey in WMG was extraordinary. The mixture of opportunities was too good to miss and most importantly I never felt isolated. Doing a Masters is hard work but there was always support. There are personal tutors who act as mentors, supervisors who are extremely helpful and supportive throughout one’s project and other staff who are there to listen. The most important thing that I want to highlight is every student is valued and recognized in WMG. Everyone’s ideas are heard and there is always someone to help share those ideas and knowledge further. According to me I would say that this is one of the greatest strengths of WMG - to share and support knowledge in its research and academic excellence.

Regarding academic teaching, the MSc course structure is designed with a combination of modules, simulations and a dissertation. It provides a very innovative and collaborative way of learning to develop one’s skills and competencies. The way of teaching is mostly based on a practical approach including giving presentations, working through case studies of real business scenarios and visiting companies to see first hand operations within industry. This gives a robust understanding of knowledge that is integrated with real life experience. I think it has given me a lot of scope to learn and be proactive in continuing to learn. This entire approach of teaching has lot to offer for the future.

The research work in WMG, I guess its self explanatory. It’s the only centre in the UK that has received recognition for its excellence and contribution towards various industries all over the globe. The department is full of talents and the main thing that I have learned from them is to continuously learn.

As a proud alumnus, I would always tell people that I was and I am being valued by WMG throughout. As a graduate I still receive support and guidance from WMG. For example, I initiated a business quiz social event in 2012 after I became an alumni and I am really thankful to the management in supporting me to conduct this event which was successfully received and I am looking forward to continue this so that I can keep myself involved with WMG to help spread knowledge and encourage students to create a better future.

For students considering coming to WMG, I would say ‘go for it’. There are so many opportunities. It’s a place of innovation, ideas and encouragement."

If you have any questions for Surya or you are also a MSc graduate, feel free to leave us a comment to ask your question or share your experience.

    Well done Surya, and thank you sharing this Julia. I am sure Surya and his family are very proud of his achievement, especially as he has travelled from India leaving his family and friends. Now it is all worth it and I’m sure he has a bright future ahead of him.
