“The mind is everything. What you think youbecome.”- Gautam Buddha.Coming from thebirthplace of Buddha, I have always been motivated by his ideologies andthoughts. They inspire me to remain focused towards my goal, which is why Ihave always ensured that I have the right mindset and the required focus when Iset out to achieve my target.
Startingfrom my childhood, I was very eager to understand the functionalities of anydevices that were around me. I always tried to explore the working of eachdevice with enthusiasm and zeal. Questions like how these devices work? Whatare their utilities and how will they simplify our regular work? have helped mebuild a close connection with new innovative technologies and theiradvancements. This interest of mine led me to pursue Science in my 12th grade.I then completed my undergraduate in Electronics and Communication Engineering atBapuji Institute of Engineering and Technology which is affiliated toVisvesvaraya Technological University, Belgaum, India to further enhance myskills in the field of technology and innovation. At the end of my course, Ilanded a job at Accenture wherein I got a platform to utilize my technicalskills and learnt aboutthe business processes and applications in the field of InformationTechnology. My interests also liein management studies because I believe it is important to possess managerialskills apart from technical know-how. Thus, I wish to pursue Master of Sciencein Information Systems with a concentration in Business Analytics at youresteemed university.
During my bachelor’s study, I developed a stronginclination towards computational and analytical subjects like C, C++,Microprocessor, Microcontroller, Information Theory and Coding, Embedded systemand Network Security and management subjects like Management andEntrepreneurship. My final semester project was on the topic “IEEE bridge conditionmonitoring system using wireless network “, the main objective of which was tomonitor the health condition of a bridge using wireless Network in real time. Also, as a part of the academic curriculum, I completed aone-month internship at HCL Infosystems Limited, India and attended a workshop,RoboTryst-2013, organized by Robosapiens Technologies Pvt. Ltd, India whichhelped me to develop my engineering skills and practice in a real-worldenvironment. Apart from my academic involvements, I have participated andhosted several literary, sporting and cultural events during intercollegeannual fests and attended multiple workshops and seminars. My strong desire tounderstand the business process propelled me to accept an employment offer fromAccenture upon completion of my undergraduate education. My employment asApplication Development Analyst at Accenture, a fortune global 500 company,demonstrates my overall proficiency.
I was assigned to a project which wasbased on an onshore-offshore operating model and has improved my knowledge tounderstand how corporate sectors use technology to solve the Business problems.This real-time work experience has provided me great opportunity to learnInformation Management System with primary knowledge of SAP Sales and Distribution.Having worked for over 3 years now, I have acquired a good knowledge in theoverall domain that helps in managing master data, system configuration,integration with other SAP modules and order to cash process relatedtransactions which helps in better work and data management in organizationsacross industries. Further, I have suggested certain automation ideas whichwere implemented to improve the existing business process and themaintenance-work life cycle. Having received appreciation from my seniors andfellow colleagues for my capability in handling challenging project relatedtasks, I have diligently performedwell and my capability and leadership skills were rewarded withRecognition Points and a Henkel Sieger Award 2017. Moreover, I have mentored 5resources under my supervision.

I also worked as the Event Coordinator for our Client’sAnnual Event 2015. Additionally, I have won many monetary awards in debatecompetition, Table Tennis, Badminton, and Cricket tournaments.
Furthermore, working with Accenture has beenquintessential in helping me align my interests and to experience the best ofboth worlds-technology and management. UTA College of Business, University of Texas Arlington,has always been a pioneer and an excellent archetype in the field ofinformation technology and management. The distinguished faculty, excellentfacilities, brilliant labs, research centres and proximity to industry-leadingorganizations of this university makes the graduation program ideally suited tomy professional goal. A curriculum of the intended program consists of all thecomponents that I was looking for. Courses such as Data Warehousing and BusinessIntelligence, Information Systems Project Management, Principles of BusinessData Mining, Management of Information Technologies, etc.
are few of thosewhich are not only directly relevant to my area of interest but also add valueto my current work experience. In recent times, the research that was done bythe UTA faculty Prof.Radha Mahapatra in the field of Data Warehousing andBusiness Intelligence has been exemplary and it would be a great privilege toassist him for the same. Through this, I hope to curate an experience that willnot just satiate my desire to excel in Information Technology and Managementbut will also equip me with all the necessary skills required to apply myknowledge in a practical environment. Hence, I would greatly benefit from thisprogram and hope this will be a symbiotic relationship.
After graduating from UTA,I would seek a Technology consultant position at one of the leading technologyconsulting firms where I will plan and manage complex engagements, serve as anadvisor to senior client executives, and involve in direct engagementmanagement. In the long term, I would like to contribute to the field of IT byestablishing a consulting firm of my own. Having acknowledged the highstandards that an esteemed university like yours demands, I would like toreiterate that the opportunities provided to me will bring forward in numerouslearning experiences, which will help me substantially to achieve everypossible success that I envision. Thus, I will sincerely request the admissioncommittee to consider my candidature for your MSIS program for fall 2018.
