Daytime MBA | Class of 2015

 

I was born and raised in Chennai, India. Growing up, I was enamored with quality and this unusual love led me to major in Production Engineering in undergrad. I then pursued a career as a Lean Six Sigma consultant, helping diverse clients in financial, retail, market research, and telecom sectors in the US and Asia. Prior to coming to Fuqua, I worked as a Manager at Rockwell Automation, a global Industrial Automation firm, in Cleveland.

I chose Fuqua for its unique take on leadership development, specifically it’s focus on creating consequential leaders. The emphasis on enabling students to define and achieve their leadership goals is what sets Fuqua apart. I began my leadership journey on a boisterous note by leading a bunch of my crazy classmates during Campout to win season passes to Duke basketball games!

Fuqua Activities: I’m a cabinet member of my Section, and a member of the Consulting Club, General Management Club, and Badminton Club.

Aside from school activities, I love hiking, travelling, writing about my hikes & travels, pencil sketching and playing badminton. I can speak 5 languages with varying fluency and I’m learning Spanish, thanks to my Latino friends in my MBA section.
