The right
information and the means to use it efficiently can provide an organization an
edge over its competitors. Businesses today are largely centered on
intelligently extracting the useful information from the available raw data. However,
the biggest challenge here is the enormous volume and diversity of data that is
generated and collected by these organizations. This abundance of data, along
with the unavailability of powerful data analysis tools, has resulted in a “data
rich but information poor” phenomenon. This widening gap between data and
information has generated an urgent need for new techniques and tools that can
intelligently assist us in the management of data and information. With an aim to
explore new techniques and tools that can bridge this gap, I aspire to pursue Masters
in Management Information System.HJ1 

 

Since my
childhood, I have exhibited brilliance both in academics as well as in co-curricular
activities. My keen interest in logical and analytical subjects led me to take
up Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry as major subjects. I have consistently
maintained my academic scores and always secured a place among the top 10
percentage of students in class. Furthermore, I have often stood victorious in athletics
and also captained my teams to achieve triumph in team sports like cricket, soccer
at various Intra and inter-school competitions.

 

Driven by love for science
and mathematics, engineering was an undoubted choice for my undergraduate
studies. During my undergraduate program, I was introduced
to interesting subjects such as embedded systems, C, C++, data
communication and computer network, operating systems etc. which helped me
understand the concept of system implementation and its application in day-to-day
life. As part of my final year project, I along with my team of three developed
a project ‘Automatic Street Lighting
Control Using ZigBee Module’ implementing embedded and communication system
technology. Besides the technical acumen that I gathered over the four years in
my undergraduate studies, I have had the opportunity to broaden my learning
horizon outside the classroom through presentations, seminars and by organizing
events that proved to be equally valuable.

 

After under-graduation,
I joined Tata Consultancy Services (TCS)
to experience the corporate life and to learn business rules governing the
industry. During my training at TCS, I developed skills in technologies such as
C++, UNIX, and SQL and gained hands-on experience by working on an E-commerce
project titled ‘Inventory Management System’. After training, I got selected
for a Marketing Automation project ‘Adobe
Campaign Management’ where my job was to support and maintain Adobe Campaign
platform. HJ2 Main
responsibilities included job monitoring, bug fixing, ensuring smooth campaign deployments,
server and database monitoring, and ensuring lossless transfer of customer data
upstream/downstream. Every day we dealt with millions of bits of customer data
which had to be efficiently retrieved, stored, organized and pushed to other reliant
systems. The industry experience at TCS which incorporates interactions and
learning with highly experienced team members, managers, and clients has carved
me into an eligible professional to take up the real-world challenges.

 

Having worked in
TCS for 3 years, I got to know about the wide scope and opportunities in the
field of Information System and how new emerging technologies in this field can
be utilized to offer business applications. To prepare myself to meet the
demanding standards of this industry, I wish to pursue M.S in Information Technology and Management at
UT Dallas – Naveen Jindal School of
Management and my preferred area of study is in ‘Business Intelligence and Analytics’. The distinguished faculty, excellent
facilities and proximity to industry-leading organizations of JSOM makes the graduation program
ideally suited to my professional goals. The breadth and flexibility of the
curriculum will provide specialization in the field of my interest. For
instance, Systems Analysis and Project Management,
Business Analytics with SAS etc. are
such courses that will provide knowledge which will play a crucial role in my
career. Also, certification programs offered under ITM major provide a great opportunity for students who want a competitive
edge as they seek jobs. Furthermore, at JSOM, I will be able to work with
students having different work experience and cultures by indulging in community
service, student organization/campus involvements, this will help in
effectively collaborating with individuals of diverse backgrounds and ideas.

 

I sincerely
request the esteemed Admission Committee of JSOM to favorably consider my application and provide me with a
suitable platform for the attainment of success in my desired field.
