Indeed, me. But satisfaction does not come easily to

                                                         Indeed, computers and information systems have become an indispensable part of every business today. In today’s technology-driven world,  the huge and diverse amount of data  being captured by companies each day is amazing. The widening gap between latest and accurate information and data can hamper the smooth functioning of any business organization and thus has generated the need for expertise which will turn the huge amount of data into vast bucket of knowledge. The rapidly emerging field of information management have thus fascinated me towards MIS. Having the work experience of seven and half years that has imparted profound skills and knowledge of the professional and business field; I would like to take the next step to achieve my goal by pursuing Master degree. Today, working as a Senior Quality Analyst in ‘MediaOcean Asia Pvt. Ltd.’, I am aware of the fact that given the company’s reputation and the opportunities attached to my job, anyone would like to trade places with me. But satisfaction does not come easily to me and in order to have a successful career, it’s essential that I couple my existing technical knowledge with managerial skills. Therefore, the Master’s program in Management Information System is the ideal choice for me. The academic curriculum during my undergraduate studies helped me nurture my analytical and problem-solving skills. Courses in Applied Mathematics helped me learn about different tools for statistical analysis such as regression analysis, hypothesis testing and, differential equations. The course on Software Engineering acquainted me with different stages of the Software Development Lifecycle and the factors to be considered while choosing a particular model for software development. Also, courses like ‘Operating systems’, ‘Theory of Computation’, ‘Computer Networking’, helped me understand basic fundamentals and provided a strong understanding of Computers. Courses on Database Management and Data Communication helped me learn data analysis and the administration of databases. My consistent performance in academics, proficient knowledge in computer skills and leadership qualities helped me become a part of the World’s largest gaming company “Electronic Arts” as a Quality Assurance Engineer. After two and half years of work experience in Electronic Arts, I switched to Global Logic India Private Limited. Considering my outstanding performance, I was offered the role of a Senior Test Engineer on the project “Verizon FiOS Mobile” and worked with Verizon, company’s most prestigious client. Although I was having a gaming background, the project required me to work on completely new tools such as JMeter, Charles and Omniture and master it within a stringent timeline. But I enjoyed every bit of the challenge and my work was appreciated by my peers, superiors, and the client as well. Working on this project allowed me to explore and learn how the software development life cycle works at an industrial level. Currently, I am working with “Mediaocean Asia Pvt Limited” as a Senior Quality Analyst-I. The company is in the field of Software Product Development in the Ad-Tech Domain. Along with the application of software development life cycle, I am also responsible for the automation of test scripts through data-driven development. Apart from the enriched technical skill set, work at Mediaocean has also given me the exposure in business processes, team working, deadline management and client handling. In the absence of my superiors, I am responsible for leading the QA team and handling the software module This involves dealing with clients on a daily basis and guiding, managing the new resources. Being awarded thrice for my diligent work, Mediaocean also gave me an opportunity to travel to New York in 2017 for having face to face discussions with the product managers and direct clients regarding the roadmap and business processes for 2018. My work at Mediaocean has helped me imbibe with valuable technical knowledge such as Java, Selenium Webdriver and also hone my leadership qualities. With the analytical and technical skills developed through the academic years and rich work experience of 7.5 years in all stages of project development, I now aim to be a technology leader. Application of information technology to solve business problems and managing information is critical to the success of a business enterprise.  The MIS program, a perfect blend of three major subjects- economics, computer science and managerial science, serves this purpose. “Project Management and Implementation” and “Business Analytics” are the foremost areas of my interest that I wish to study further. The attraction in these subjects is due to their breadth of applicability, both as a method of problem-solving in itself and in a symbiotic integration with other areas of business management. I am quite aware that to bring my career aspirations to fruition, I need more exposure than at present, and hence the decision to undertake a master’s degree.  I believe that I have the requisite skills and the rich work experience which should be an ideal foundation to pursue the course and emerge as a leader in the field at a global level. The program ‘Management Information System’ at the ———- would equip me with the tools to understand the complexities and design solutions in a better way. It would also provide me with an opportunity to learn from a diversified group of peers- the way they would tackle a particular problem and from their responses to various situations. I am thoroughly impressed by the curriculum and the mandatory inclusion of the subject “Introduction to Business” for students with no business background which speaks in itself the volume of research and efforts being invested in making a curriculum for students’ benefit. I look forward to my admission in your esteemed university so that I can commence on the next stage of my career.
