MBA alumni shortlisted for prestigious awards
Two Nottingham University Business School MBA graduates have been shortlisted for the prestigious annual Association of MBAs awards.
MBA Entrepreneurial Venture Award finalist: Shrenik Parmar
Shrenik Parmar is a start-up entrepreneur and Founder of Proodle Solutions, a multi-award winning business based in Nottingham.
Like most of the best products and services, the motivation behind the creation of Proodle was to provide a solution to a real-life problem. In common with many other international students, Shrenik had experienced the personal frustration of limited communication and information when applying through a local agent to universities abroad. Determined to change the game, he developed a state-of-the-art mobile platform to connect students and universities directly, giving control back to the student and empowering university recruitment teams through clever technology that significantly enhances engagement in real time across all devices with highly personalised and relevant content.
Supported by the University of Nottingham’s Ingenuity Lab, Proodle has helped many universities create stronger connections with prospective students, helping ensure they have all the information at every step to make a well informed decision and resulting in significant increases in applications and a more effective ways to measure marketing impact and levels of engagement.
