Life at HSM

Success Stories

Maryam Iftikhar

I was clueless as to what I wanted during my student life but I always knew I wanted to transform myself into “someone” from no one and UMT played a key role in the whole process for me. It is impossible for me to count the ways in which UMT has served me in achieving what I longed for.

The committed, extraordinary, and resourceful faculty of HSM-UMT gave me a new direction and empowered me to write a new story of my life, filled with purpose and meaning. Currently, I am working as a senior digital content strategist in a well-reputed organization where I plan, deliver and execute marketing campaigns. A Chinese philosopher once said, “A journey of a thousand miles, starts with one step” and I am glad to have taken that step with UMT and gone through all of it to get the life I’ve always dreamt of.

Saima Ahmed

I am Saima Ahmed, an MBA graduate from HSM-UMT with a 4/4 CGPA and am truly very obliged to my faculty members of HSM who pushed me to strive for the best always whether in terms of academics or professionalism. UMT is more than an institution, it is a second home to many including me! It is a place to make your dreams come true. Today I am the social media manager at a well reputed brand and this wouldn’t be possible if my skills were not polished by the top most faculty members of HSM who always taught me to outshine and never settle for anything less and mentored me during my interviews and guided me through every possible assistance.

The effort of my mentors for helping me discover my innate potential is beyond any praise. After completing my bachelors from UMT, I knew that UMT is the best place to pursue my MBA. During my 6 years’ journey at UMT I have learnt to be creative and gained utmost confidence and wherever I stand today is all due to the efforts of my mentors and my parents who always motivated me to achieve my passion and always supported me with academic and professional pursuits. I consider myself to be lucky that I came across faculty members who made me what I am today! Thanks to UMT, Thank to HSM!

Muhammad Asad Javaid

Having completed my BBA and MBA in 2016 and 2018 respectively, I always had a huge interest in the auto mobile industry despite the fact that I had been working in Pakistan Cargo Service as Business Development Executive for 3 years (while studying). The interest grew as I completed my studies and then finally in 2018, right after my MBA, I got a job offer at one of the Pakistan’s first and foremost company – CarFirst as a Regional Purchase Manager in 2018. After the first couple of months, I was promoted to the Growth Manager position, looking after the purchases side of CarFirst, nationwide. While managing a team of more than 50+ employees, I was able to increase the purchase conversion ratio to new heights, as our purchases grew from 12% to 27% within 12 months.

Fast forward to the year 2020, I was heading the Expansion side of CaFirst (being one of the youngest Lead in CarFirst. In under one year, under my leadership, we were able to expand in more than 2 new tier 1 cities and 2 new tier 2 cities in Pakistan, crossing a whooping 40+ purchase centers nationwide. I have been recently promoted to Sales Operations department, where I’ll be working as a Senior Manager Sales Operations. Everything has happened due to the remarkable and utmost support of the teachers at the university who always guided me to the right path, mentored me when I was completely lost and cheered my achievements with me.

Paras Zubair

I, Paras Zubair – Business graduate from UMT believe that an institute must be a place where the student can see himself/herself grooming professionally and UMT has proved itself to be one of those institutes. UMT truly facilitated me grooming professionally which at the end helped me choosing the right career path. By the time I graduated from BBA program from UMT I knew that this is exactly the place to do MBA from.  Hence, I enrolled myself in their MBA program to learn from the top-notch, cooperative, and excellent faculty.

Throughout my journey at HSM UMT I’ve been able to maintain a good CGPA and earned a Gold Medal and Rector Merit Award twice. From year 2019-2020, I worked as Digital Marketing and Freelancing Coach at Digiskills Training Program. Currently working as Deputy Metropolitan Officer Regulation (DMOR) BS-18 in Metropolitan Corporation Lahore (MCL). I highly appreciate HSM-UMT for providing ample opportunities to students to develop their careers and lives in a meaningful manner.
