I am Rishabh Sharma student of MBA- Port & Shipping Management. I joined UPES because this was the university which was giving me a platform to explore more opportunities in the domain i was aspiring to complete my Post-Graduation. I joined with the dream to excel in the Port and Shipping industry and to get the exposure in this domain. I completed my summer internship at Adani ports & SEZ Ltd., which gave an the clarity and insight about how mega ports work. My dream was always to work for a world class port or a shipping company. So I tried my best and finally got the placement in the world’s No 1 shipping company Maersk Line. On the whole UPES had built my career, refined my decision making process, outlook and finally made my dreams, come true. I shall fondly remember this beautiful association.
