  • SP Jain alumnus returns to campus to hire MBA talent

    Published on January 11, 2022

    SP Jain School of Global Management, a Forbes #12 ranked business school, announced today that Gaurav Biswas, graduate of the school’s Global MBA program (Class of 2010) and Founder and CEO of TruKKer, has made offers to outgoing MBA students from SP Jain’s Class of 2021.

    Students have been hired for various roles including product owner, product manager, analysts, and other development roles and are expected to be stationed in Bangalore, India. These students will go through a rigorous training program and have the opportunity to gain experience across TruKKer markets.

    TruKKer is the first technology-enabled truck aggregator and largest digital land freight network in the Middle East & North Africa (MENA) region. It serves 500+ businesses and thousands of retail clients for their cargo movement requirements. Over the past years, TruKKer has disrupted MENA’s land freight sector through the use of technology. TruKKer ventured into the Indian market space in 2021, and the TruKKer Engineering Centre in Bangalore propels the company’s innovation and stimulates new opportunities across the supply value chain.

    Commenting on this, Gaurav shared, “I have always wanted to give back to my alma mater and hiring my juniors seemed the best way to do it. So, I decided to collaborate with SP Jain Global to organise an on-campus recruitment drive as a part of a larger recruitment plan undertaken by TruKKer that focuses on expanding the company’s intellectual capital and diversifying its workforce.”

    “Seeing alumni return to school and give back in this way is immensely gratifying and an impressive reminder of the strong demand for SP Jain graduates in the corporate world. This experience shows that alumni see the value in the education they received and the relationships they built while on campus, and want to provide opportunities for new graduates to join them professionally,” shared  Dr. Balakrishna Grandhi, Dean of the school’s Global MBA program.

    “Our goal is to create relevant leaders for the world’s top companies. Having studied in three countries – Singapore, Dubai and Sydney – our students graduate with a unique competitive advantage. They understand how to operate in a global business environment – a skill recruiters much value. They undertake projects with top companies, interact with business leaders and thinkers, go on cultural tours and develop important global skills. These skills have led to better jobs, salaries, and better graduate outcomes,” added Dr. Grandhi.
