Sai Praneeth Reddy Chana Reddy
I am originally from Andhra Pradesh, India. My academic background is in electrical engineering from IIT Madras. I started off my career as a cloud engineer at Cisco, where I led our migration to the cloud and also the automation of several processes. To expand my horizons, I started advising startups on strategic decisions on a voluntary basis. It was a unique opportunity to learn a lot of things very quickly and gain exposure to client and C-suite interaction. I enjoyed being at the forefront, driving deals and decisions, and seeing tangible results of my work in real time. I realized that I wanted to expand on this skill set, So I decided to do an MBA and transition to Investment Banking.
While making my B-school decision, a common theme that I heard was that Ross has a great set of people who are always willing to help and want you to succeed and I am seeing exactly that. The school spirit here is just unbelievable. I am also experienced in mentoring students toward graduate admissions, especially with test prep, applications, and interviews. Outside of work, I love to talk about Cricket, F1, and movies.
