SHU Student Vijay Tak Proudly Receiving the ICT Start-Up of the Year Award!
For over six months, Vijay Tak, a student in the Welch MBA with an Internship programme at Sacred Heart University Luxembourg, has been completing his compulsory internship at My Hippocrates. MyHippocrates is an all-in-one, cloud-based platform by the Luxembourg-based startup TheMarketsTrust, specialising in Medical Data Management, including full EMR for doctors, patients access, and more.
It was great news for Vijay when “his” company was awarded the Start-Up of the Year 2015 Award at the 9th Luxembourg ICT Awards. The Luxembourg ICT awards are held every year at the IT One Gala where individuals and companies are recognised and awarded for their outstanding contribution to innovation in information technologies. Competitors are first selected by a jury of CIOs who evaluate their contribution to innovation. Winners are then picked through a vote of 50 IT executives in the fields of finance, services, industry, construction, trade, healthcare, logistics and government services.
Thanks to a background in IT and well-equipped with a fresh business acumen, acquired during his MBA studies at SHU Luxembourg, Vijay has become a valuable member of the MyHippocrates team. His hard work and dedication to his studies and internship were rewarded when Vijay was chosen as the MyHippocrates team member to receive the award on behalf of the entire winning team.
After graduation in May 2016, Vijay plans to stay in Luxembourg for at least another two years. The Luxembourg government grants all foreign students who’ve successfully completed their Master’s degree an additional two years of residency within the Grand Duchy.
We wish him all the success in his already promising career!
