Worked with an avionics start up located in Auburn,AL from 2004 till 2012 in multiple roles; lead system safety engineer, lead software engineer, system engineer to name a few. Contributed immensely to product development of DO178-B Level A certified products. Can get a reference letter from the President of that company as a testimony of my leadership role and efforts in shaping the company product line.
This year about a month ago moved to Rockwell Collins as a Senior Software Engineer. The intention was to target a B school within a 200 miles radius. Auburn,AL gave me access to Auburn University MBA and of course couple more schools in Atlanta...Emory and GA Tech.
My plan presents me with options that include Georgetown, Smith, Villanova and of course Darden.
Coached little league soccer team, coached USTA kids tennis team
During my high school, completed National Cadet Corps training in India (the program is modeled along the Indian National Defense Forces training regimen)
Tried to salvage my family owned small business in India after my Dad passed away when I was 17. Can get a recommendation letter to that effect from the former Secretary of Defense, India.
Sales pitch: Diversify my skill set, broaden my horizon and of course avoid the proverbial glass ceiling which engineers face
Need assessment of my chances or any helpful comments.....
