Bachelors in Business Administration (BBA) from NMIMS University, Mumbai, India
Sports have always been the most important part of my life. As I grew up playing and watching professional sports, I decided to pursue a career in the sports industry. After completing my undergraduate degree in business, I worked in different roles in the Indian sports industry to understand how the business of sports works.
Advancements in technology drew me towards the applications of data and analytics within the sports industry. As I began exploring my interests in this field, IUPUI’s M.S. in Applied Data Science with a Specialization in Sports Analytics interested me the most.
I believe the Data Science curriculum will help me acquire much-needed technical skills to work in this industry. The sports-related opportunities that the city of Indianapolis offers are most appropriate for me to get the practical experience I need to build my career.
