As documented by Kevin Garcia
I am a mechatronics engineer with a master’s degree in strategic business management and project management. I am currently leading processes improvement and data analytics projects for Merck KgaA in Germany, one of the top pharmaceutical companies in the world. I have five years of experience as a project and product manager in Mexico, the United States, and Germany.
While an intern with Merck KgaA, I pursued Simplilearn’s Professional Certificate Program in Business Analysis with Purdue University. It was the perfect step toward gaining more confidence and better managing projects. After completing the course, I was offered a full-time position and was assigned new tasks. In addition, I also was given a 300 percent salary increase.
I am now a certified PMP® by the PMI®, a ScrumMaster, and a SAFE® Agilist. I aspire to have a higher management role where I can manage my portfolio of projects.
Simplilearn’s applied learning format
The comprehensive curriculum made me choose Simplilearn over other platforms. What worked out significantly well for me was Simplilearn’s applied learning approach, where I could learn at my own pace and still benefit from the live classes. I particularly enjoyed the business cases, which demonstrated a practical application of concepts.
Simplilearn provided training on Excel, Tableau, and several other analytics tools. The course catered to a lot of skills. The ability to attend the lectures, flexible learning, and all the resources at-hand improved the learning experience. It felt like I was learning in a real-life classroom, and the material available such as ebooks was extremely easy to understand and helpful.
