M.S. Information Management '06
North Bergen, N.J

I am from New Delhi, the capital city of India, where I completed my Bachelors of Science at the University of Delhi in 2000. I went on to do a Masters in Computers Management at the Symbiosis Institute of Computer Studies and Research, in Pune. After working for two years in the Indian IT industry as a proposal writer, I enrolled in the Information Management graduate program at Syracuse University in 2004.

My experience in the Information Management program has been extremely enriching. In addition to introducing me to a whole new line of thought, the program provided many opportunities to develop my sense of leadership. Moreover, the flexibility of the curriculum allowed me to build on my previous experience and gain new skills to pursue my career objectives.

I was fortunate to work as a graduate assistant to Prof. Robert Heckman, director of the information management program. Not only did this give me an opportunity to build a healthy relationship with the faculty and staff, but also gave me an opportunity to contribute to the IST community. The career services department helps out in providing opportunities to network with employers and alumni through career fairs and other events. One of such event helped me get a job at Ernst & Young in their Technology Risk Management practice at New York City where I started working in June 2006.

I would be happy to advise or help out should you have any questions about Syracuse University or the MS/IM program. I can be reached at
