WHAT WERE YOU DOING BEFORE COMING TO KELLOGG?
I grew up in India, spent 10 years in the United Kingdom, where I did undergrad, then an awesome job working with unreleased cellphones, and then I worked on a mental health suicide prevention project – using smartphones, of course. I finally spent a year in Canada working for an ATM software company.
As the global dynamics of sports business continue to change, Kellogg has emerged as a leading business school in terms of strategic thinking and marketing in this field. The Sports Business Club (SBC) and Sports Business Conference are the two primary passageways for the industry at our school.
As Chair of the Sports Business Conference and Vice President of Careers for the SBC, it is important for me (and the rest of our great second year leadership) to develop a coherent and consistent plan for all of our future leaders. Combining the resources of faculty, classmates, administration, and leaders from other schools at Northwestern, has been a critical mission for the club and the Sports Business Conference. If we want Kellogg and Northwestern alumni to become leaders in sports business, it is vital we all work together.

I came to Kellogg after four years in corporate finance at Dell, based in Austin, Texas. I was part of a leadership development program where I had the opportunity to rotate through roles all across the finance and accounting function.
Once Dell went private, I decided I would take the opportunity to apply to business school for the fall. I always knew I wanted to go back, but the leveraged buyout was definitely the catalyst.
While applying, I was trying to decide which business school would be best for me. Luckily I ended up with a couple of options, but after attending DAK (Day at Kellogg – our version of admitted students weekend) there was definitely only one choice! I loved how students planned all the weekend events. That just proved to me how much the people here care about Kellogg. After being around my new classmates for a couple of months, I can tell that was the right decision.
