‘To work in any MNC, you need good communication skills’

Apeejay School of Management alumnus Sagar Vaish says handling a business is all about executing your management skills



Sagar Vaish is the Team Manager at Amazon. An alumnus of Apeejay School of Management( ASM, he pursued his Post Graduate Diploma in Management (batch of 2020). In a brief interview, the management maestro mentions his learnings along the road of management and also gives a few suggestions to current students. Edited excerpts:

What all work does a day in the office entail?

My work is related to various operations of the company and managing the customer grievances. It is all about team management. I have a team of 25 employees working under me.  

What inspired you to join the field of management?

I was working with my father previously, helping him manage our family business. I worked with him roughly for one and a half years. It was during my work experience there that I was able to see that I was missing out on some key management knowledge needed to expand our business. So, I joined Apeejay School of Management. Business is all about management and there are a lot of skills I learned during my ASM days. I improved a lot on my communication and presentation skills as well as my decision making ability. 

Tell us about your best memories from ASM days?

One of my favourite teachers who inspired me a lot at ASM was Prof Etinder Pal Singh. He taught me all the things related to business activity and administration. Also, I would like to thank Prof Monica. She was very good at MS Excel and BBA. She was very polite and she exhibited a lot of positive energy.

One word of advice for the current students at ASM?

Work on practical knowledge. Theoretical knowledge is also very important, but in the end, we all want to work in big multinational companies and private organisations. They want your practical knowledge and communication skills. So, work on that more often!

What are your future targets?

I am planning to have my own business in the field of import and export.
