Prior to Ross, I had worked as Product Manager in redBus, India’s largest bus ticketing platform. I thoroughly enjoyed solving customer’s problems and making data driven decisions. I have worked on launching new products around ride sharing. My role heavily involved stakeholder management and interacting with various functions such as Strategy, Marketing, Operations, Engineering, Data Science, and Design. These interactions helped me to understand the power of diversity and helped me to look at things from different perspectives. Also, I have worked closely with the leadership team to develop the business expansion strategy. This experience has helped me to expand my knowledge about the travel industry and develop my own leadership style. Before this, I have also worked for a consulting and a market research firm for 3 years. So, in a nutshell I love understanding customer needs and solving their problems with the help of technology. I wanted an MBA experience that would help me to strengthen my leadership skills, business acumen and acquire new skills, which are necessary for my career progression. Action based learning experience, diverse peer groups, Sanger Leadership Center, truly collaborative culture, 60+ club’s, amazing professors, and fact groups at Ross make it a great place to learn from your community and apply the learnings in the real world. It was very important for me to find a cultural fit with the school so that I could thrive and become the best version of myself, and Ross stood out to me on those lines. I had a great time interacting with Ross student ambassadors during my application process, and I would love to pay-it-forward. So feel free to reach out to me with any questions about Ross, Ann Arbor or MBA in general. GO BLUE!!
