Madhurima graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Electronics and Tele-Communications from Sardar Patel Institute of Technology, Mumbai. Immediately after graduation, she joined Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Ltd. as an Advisory Analyst, where she worked with the Internal Audit (Controls Testing) team. Her job was to help clients extend their IA oversight to gain a greater understanding of the risks, controls, and governance related to evolving IT systems, application, and technologies.
Coming from a family of entrepreneurs, Madhurima’s fascination with and understanding of business started early on. She was able to realize her dream of running a successful business after winning an entrepreneurship competition in the sophomore year of her undergraduate studies and setting up her own on-campus store, "The Engineer's Store". The experience from successfully running this venture enabled her to gain in-depth insight into areas such as need analysis, competitor survey, monitoring sales, analyzing profitability and projecting demand and price, which needed data accumulation and analysis and introduced her to the importance of analytics in business.
After graduating from Purdue, Madhurima looks forward to being proficient in advanced analytical modeling methods and complex tools, so that she can provide optimized business solutions to her clients. She also aims to solve equally challenging social problems by applying such techniques.
