Priya Hinduja

Audit Manager IT in Standard Chartered Bank

Batch: 2000 – 2003

It has been a privilege and a blessing to have been part of MOP family. At a time after passing out from school, I was looking for a course that can give me business and technical knowledge. MOP was a wonderful college that came to my aid at the right time. It brought out the best of my talents and made me ready for the financial world. I am a BCA gold medalist and I now work as an audit manager in the IT field in the standard chartered bank. I am now in a good position in my career and personal life and the full credits for my well-being today goes to MOP and the values it taught me. I learnt to work systematically and sincerely to gain the right things in life. The diverse experience provided by the MOP entrepreneurship programme made me a confident woman.

I was also helped by the college with scholarship. I will be grateful and obliged for all the good deeds of the college throughout my life.

Designation: Senior Consultant, Capgemini

Batch of study: 2003-2006

I am very proud to be a student of MOP, I will always be grateful to all my teachers who mentored me and guided me not just in studies but in life too. Special thanks to the teachers of BCA department who encouraged me and groomed me to who I am now.

Name: Shilpa T

Designation: Operations Executive, Infosys

Batch of study: 2012-2015

“People say, where you are studying doesn’t matter but what you study matters. This may be partially true but not entirely. Where you study also matters.  There is a difference between MOP-ians and others. I have been an average student in my theory but I would like to boost myself up saying I had done greatly in my practicals and the credit goes to my college and the very supporting faculty there. May be, I wouldn’t have been the second topper of an exam conducted at Infosys without the foundation knowledge given at MOP (attended by around 450 people across the country). Being the top producer of high ranked students in academics, I have been equally exposed to other extra-curricular activities both from department as well as college.  MOP has given me best education, best friends, best faculty and also a great beginning for my Career. I am happy to proud to say that I am an alumnus of MOP. Happy silver Jubilee MOP!”
