Class of 2020

I am currently a second-year MBA student focused on Strategy and Technology management. Prior to Ross, I did my undergraduate studies in Engineering from National Institute of Technology, Raipur and then a Master’s degree in Information Science from Oklahoma State University.
I am working as a Sr. Data Scientist at Ford and building a startup company, which provides an App based STD testing service in the Midwest area. At Ross, I am working to enhance my leadership skills and Business acumen to transition my career into a product management role in the Tech industry.
In between work and my studies, I am preoccupied with giving back, which involves my startup CheckMate, the main purpose of which is to alleviate needless anxiety and suffering amongst the world’s youth.  Given my humble beginnings in India, I also hope to use all my experience and education to address the financial needs of the less well-off by creating a platform to help financially illiterate students manage their expenses.  I was taught early by my parents that to the degree that I can help someone else succeed and live a good life, I myself will be successful.  
I chose the Michigan Ross program for its action-based learning approach and vast alumni network. After entering the program, I have been pleasantly surprised with the diversity, quality and the spirit of University of Michigan students. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions. Go Blue!
