Coming from the
birthplace of Buddha, I have always been motivated by his ideologies and
thoughts. They inspire me to remain focused towards my goal, which is why I
have always ensured that I have the right mindset and the required focus when I
set out to achieve my target.  Starting from
my childhood, I was very eager to understand the functionalities of any devices
that were around me. Questions like how these devices work? What are their
utilities and how will they simplify our regular work? have helped me build a
close connection with new innovative technologies and their advancements. This
interest of mine led me to pursue Science in my 12th grade. I then completed my
undergraduate in Electronics and Communication Engineering from Visvesvaraya Technological
University, India to further enhance my skills in the field of technology and
innovation. At the end of my course, I landed a job at Accenture wherein I got
a platform to utilize my technical skills and learnt about the business
processes and applications in the field of Information Technology.

My interests also lie
in management studies because I believe it is important to possess managerial
skills apart from technical know-how. Thus, I wish to pursue Master of Science in Business Analytics
and Information Systems at your esteemed university. During my bachelor’s
study, I developed a strong inclination towards computational and analytical
subjects like C, C++, Microprocessor, Microcontroller, Information Theory and
Coding, Embedded system, Network Security etc. and management subjects like
Management and Entrepreneurship. My final semester project was on the topic
“IEEE bridge condition monitoring system using wireless network “, the
main objective of which was to monitor the health condition of a bridge using wireless
Network in real time. Apart from my academic involvements, I have participated
and hosted several literary, sporting and cultural events during intercollege
annual fests and attended multiple workshops and seminars.

My strong desire to
understand the business process propelled me to accept an employment offer from
Accenture upon completion of my undergraduate education. My employment as
Application Development Analyst at Accenture, a fortune global 500 company,
demonstrates my overall proficiency. I was assigned to a project which was
based on an onshore-offshore operating model and has improved my knowledge to
understand how corporate sectors use technology to solve the Business problems.
Having worked for over 3 years as SAP SD Consultant, I have acquired good
knowledge in the overall domain that helps in managing master data, system
configuration, integration with other SAP modules and order to cash process
related transactions which helps in better work and data management in
organizations across industries. Further, I have suggested certain automation
ideas which were implemented to improve the existing business process and the
maintenance-work life cycle. Having received appreciation from my seniors and clients
for my capability in handling challenging project related tasks, I was rewarded
with Recognition Award Points and a Henkel Sieger Award 2017. Moreover, I have
mentored 5 resources under my supervision which demonstrates my leadership
skill. I also worked as the Event Coordinator for our Client’s Annual Event
2015. Additionally, I have won many monetary awards in debate competition,
Table Tennis, Badminton, and Cricket tournaments. Furthermore, working with
Accenture has been quintessential in helping me align my interests and to
experience the best of both worlds-Technology and Management.

Muma College of Business, University of South Florida,
has always been a pioneer and an excellent archetype in the field of
information technology and management. A curriculum of the intended program
consists of all the components that I was looking for. Courses such as Operation and Supply Chain
Processes, Project Management, Data Mining, Enterprise Information System
Management, Data Warehousing, etc. are few of those which are not only
directly relevant to my area of interest but also add value to my current work
experience. In recent times, the research that was done by the USF faculty Associate Prof. Kaushik Dutta
in the field of Data
Analytics and Big Data has been exemplary and it would be a great
privilege to assist him in the same. Through this, I hope to curate an
experience that will not just satiate my desire to excel in Information
Technology and Management but will also equip me with all the necessary skills
required to apply my knowledge in a practical environment. Hence, I would
greatly benefit from this program and hope this will be a symbiotic
relationship.

After graduating from
USF, I would seek a Technology consultant position at one of the leading
technology consulting firms where I will plan and manage complex engagements,
serve as an advisor to senior client executives, and involve in direct
engagement management. In the long term, I would like to contribute to the field
of IT by establishing a consulting firm of my own. Having acknowledged the high
standards that an esteemed university like yours demands, I would like to
reiterate that the opportunities provided to me will bring forward in numerous
learning experiences, which will help me substantially to achieve every
possible success that I envision. Thus, I will sincerely request the admission
committee to consider my candidature for your MS in BAIS program for fall 2018.
