Shivneel Sheshmani Chetty could not contain his excitement as he received his Executive Masters in Business Administration (EMBA) certificate from Fiji National University’s (FNU) Tamavua Campus last week.

The 27-year-old jubilantly said while showing-off his certificate “this paper here is worth all the hassle I’ve gone through in the last three years.”

Managing full-time work and studies is never easy but Chetty took on the challenge and worked persistently towards achieving his goal.

He is the Team Leader Properties and company Secretary at FHL Properties Pte Limited, which is a Subsidiary of Fijian Holdings Limited.

“Sometimes my day would finish around 10 pm after attending my classes, completing assignments and revisions for exams because we had evening classes. It has been a very tiring yet rewarding journey for me,” Chetty explained.

“The aim of finishing the course within three years kept me on my toes and taught me how to keep a balance between work, study and personal life.”

The former Assemblies of God High School student dedicated his achievement to his parents, who have supported all his decisions and have guided him throughout his education journey.

He attained Bachelor of Commerce majoring in Banking and Finance from FNU’s College of Business, Hospitality and Tourism Studies (CBHTS) in 2014.

Chetty decided to further upgrade his qualification and skills due to increased competition in the job market.

“Having an initial qualification can open opportunities for you to enter the field of your choice but career progression depends on continuously upgrading your skills so that you remain relevant and competitive for higher positions in the organisations.”

Chetty described FNU’s EMBA programme as a networking opportunity with industry professionals.

“Every programme’s objective is to equip graduates with the necessary expertise and knowledge. The EMBA programme, on the other hand, goes beyond that. We get the opportunity to become friends with people who have similar career aspirations.”

“We are then able to share our industry experiences and also get advice from experienced colleagues in the field,” he added.

The Executive Masters in Business Administration (EMBA) is one of the seven programmes offered at the Postgraduate level by FNU’s College of Business, Hospitality and Tourism Studies (CBHTS).
