Why is the Texas MS Business Analytics the next logical step for you?
How do you hope to develop, both personally and professionally, during this one-year program?
I am applying to MS program in Business Analytics at the University of Texas, Austin in pursuit of a career as an Analytics Consultant. Having worked for 40 months in diversified industries, I have realised the importance of data-driven decision making, be it in private equity investment, and product pricing and bundling. Though my academic and professional background taught me new concepts and business acumen, I lack the quantitative and technical depth essential for the career path in analytics. After careful deliberation, I found the MSBA program at UT-Austin to be the perfect fit for my career goals. This 10-months course is ideal for blending my past knowledge of business and mathematics with advanced models and computational expertise. Interactions with several alumni such as Akhilesh Narapareddy and Atintra Bandi (Class of 2019), also substantiated my decision of choosing the program.
Through world-renowned faculty such as Dr. Tejwansh Anand and Dr. Deepayan Chakrabarti, who bring immense academic and industrial experience, I will acquire knowledge to solve the complex and creative challenges faced by today's organisations in decision making. Through guest lectures, networking events with the industry representatives, and on-site visits to companies, I will gain valuable exposure with potential employers and broaden my professional network. My diverse engineering and management background will enable me to contribute towards a mutually beneficial co-learning experience. I believe that UT-Austin will further enhance my career in the field of Analytics and I hope to learn and grow with classmates from all over the world.
