“Aston has provided me with competency to be in the marketplace with expertise working on live consultancy projects with IBM, ABT products and more on the pipeline,” Das said. “I am confident that I can take this to a new level when I join an organization which needs to transform for the future sustainability aspect.”
Plus, Aston has high-quality opportunities operations research in the field of servitization which is in line with his career; he currently in involved in the work of Aston’s servitization research team, which allows him to challenge himself, fail sometimes and learn from it!

To gain additional experience in servitization and operations management, Das has taken course modules at Aston that actively engage industrial collaborators such as IBM, Rolls Royce, as well as other enterprises.

“The MBA cohort is an aggregate of a diverse expertise and it brings a whole lot of lateral thinking and innovation to our collaborative work,” Das said. “My classmates, from financial institutions, from retail and marketing all have different perspectives. In the end, the variety leads to stimulating thoughts beyond the horizon and better deliverables come out with a fresh perspective for businesses.”
