I have designed a web portal (prototype) for politicians called the Political network, and have presented it to the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh.
I am interested in MBA Information Management, as this is my field. My short term goals are to be able to understand the industry better and be able to participate on the business aspect of this industry and I have identified that I have raw managerial skills and these skills need to be polished and an MBA form a top school can help me do that.
In the long term I look to start my own technology company after getting enough insight and experience in the industry. When a business opportunity presents itself, I want to be ready in every way possible and grab it with both hands.
My target schools:
Brigham Young University: Marriott
Georgia Institute of Technology
Texas A&M: Mays
