Sagar works as Assistant Technical Director at Pelicans Manufacturing Company Limited
Sagar Amlani graduated from Middlesex University in 2008 with an MSc Management degree, and since then he has been able to implement his theoretical knowledge directly into the practical work he is doing today.
Sagar currently works at Pelicans Manufacturing Company Limited as an Assistant Technical Director. The role involves overseeing most of the aspects of management: HR, Production, Quality & Systems, logistics and IT. Because the company has units in India and the UK, Sagar spends his time commuting between Europe and India. He liaises with the MD, ensuring the smooth running of the India units.
Sagar believes the skills he learnt on the course enabled him to gain his current role. He originally worked part-time at Pelicans Mfg. Co. Ltd as a labourer. Working there gave him an opportunity to demonstrate his knowledge from the course. He was soon appointed a management position and was later given his own project to schedule. He was then offered the post of assistant technical director. The MSc Management course develops skills in areas such as project management, innovation management, analysing and Implementation, and core management. It is these skills which Sagar believes helped him to prove himself to his employer.
A huge focus of the MSc Management is on keeping you up-to-date with current and topical research. Sagar says: "I enjoyed the group discussions, seminars, presentation and the videos which we used as case studies. All the study techniques gave us a chance to interact with each other and enabled us to understand the concepts through arguments."
Sagar is proud of the fact that he took on all the financial burdens of studying the course despite his family's wishes. He says he is now in a position to pay off all his debts and provide a better life for his parents back home, and feels the investment was well worth it. In the future he would like to set up his own business or a consultancy firm.

"My masters degree gave me personal confidence and increased my knowledge. It has also given me a certain amount of credibility in my industry area. My business definitely grew and there was a step change in the sort of work myself and my business partner did following completion of our masters degrees. My fondest memory [of my time at Middlesex] was engaging intellectually with a group of like-minded students and also with some specific members of staff who were really good. I also really enjoyed being able to stretch my mind again after years in the work place."
