STATEMENTOF PURPOSE “Curiosity is one of the permanent and certain characteristics of a vigorous intellect.” -Samuel Johnson, and this curiositystarted when I was first introduced to project management roles when I startedworking for US Healthcare Domain – Revenue Cycle Management and that is when Idecided to continue my career in this domain only and drop aviation jobs as Ihave done my bachelor’s in aviation management. Project improvement and businessdevelopment has always caught my interest, I gotto know more about project improvement plans, Quality Assurance and Analysis,Team management and People management skills in my last 2.5 yrs of working exp.
As the P in PM is as much about “People Management” as it is about “ProjectManagement” and when I understood this since then my interestin project management started growing. After getting scored well in my graduation, I entered in an USHealthcare (Revenue Cycle Management) industrywith the expectations to transform my skills into practicalities before I sought further theoretical inputs in my discipline of pursuit. Working with MedzenHealthcare for 1 Yrs, variousphases from gettingtrained to being a Senior Client Partner, polished my skills. It startedas an Trainee, in US Healthcare (RCM), for the duration of three months that found a more professionalassociate out of me. Within six months of training, I was made permanent (unlikemy colleagues who took one year to get promoted). Apart from learning medicalbilling and process improvement skills, I acquiredknowledge regarding business etiquettes, Process improvement plans, team handling management, client interaction, time andprocess management, business requirements elicitation and requirement analysis.After that I have worked in another 2 companies, Over the course of myprofessional life, I have become increasingly involved in project managementroles.
Doing so has made me aware of the many varied challenges that canface projects and the project managers who are charged with bringing themthrough to completion. Currently, I am working as a Quality Analyst in US healthcare (Revenue Cycle Management) domain, serving Infinx Services – Tandon Group Company. Being a part of a teamof around 1500 members from different locations in India and USA. Besides working as project and quality improvementteam, I also handle a Ops team of 37 associates for a project which we had tied-up with US’s one of the largest outpatient radiology centers – RadNet Inc. which is doing quitewell and all the way to up in improving the revenue and quality both. Having two and half years in this field,I have very much enjoyed the challenges of working in a project managementposition in the past, and intend to work in this area in the future. I am verymuch concerned about developing my professional and technical skills which willallow me to work to the fullest of my potential, and this is why I am highlymotivated to study for an MSc in Project Management.
I believe that it is importunatefor project managers to be equipped with the skills that are important orcompulsory to allow ambitious projects to be completed on turnaround time, onbudget and according to their original specifications or according to theclient requirements, and I have a firm believe that completing this master’sdegree is the best and suitable way to acquire those skills. I have robust interestin Project management, Process Improvement, Planning and Strategy, and have found that the course modules are very interesting and will prove to be very helpfulfor my academic growth as thecourse also offers training for international certifications in PMI/CAPM/PMP®,APMG/PRINCE2. The post graduate degree in Msc in Projectand Programme management offered at Skema Business School falls in place with the career plan I have chalked out.

As the programme istaught by practitioners and researchers in project management, It will helpme to learn the complex problems solving, decision making, technical and socialskills, using appropriate techniques, and to provide realistic contexts andsituations in relation to project management.
