Lerner Grad Student Reflects on Her Journey

I come from Mumbai, India. I was working as a product manager for Vodafone, but was yearning for something more. While at Vodafone I received awards for my analytical skills, but I felt my skills in product management could be improved even further with more training, especially in data sciences.

I started looking into master’s programs and discovered that a friend of mine was pursuing an M.S. in information systems and technology management (ISTM) from the University of Delaware’s Alfred Lerner College of Business and Economics. The unique mix of technology and business related courses that she was taking caught my attention; this was exactly what I was looking for. So I took a leap and went out of my comfort zone: I quit my secure job and I came to the United States to pursue a master’s degree in ISTM at UD’s Lerner College.
