Mayank graduated from the Indian Institute of Technology, Guwahati in 2015 with a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering. His interest towards Management thrived during his summer internship at Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi, where he worked in the department of Industrial Engineering. He was exposed to a problem on supply chain management where he researched different ways to find a better solution to the given problem. He did find a better solution and published his results in the International Journal of Operations Research and Information Systems.
Mayank’s interest in Analytics developed when he received an opportunity from a professor at Haub Business School, Philadelphia to do a study on social media mining to explore different ways that companies benefit from data mining on social media. This research reinforced his desire to engage more with this field. After graduation, he started working for an analytics firm. Working for various retail clients from different sectors exposed him to the industrial work culture.
He hopes to expand on these experiences by earning an MS degree in Business Analytics and Information Management at the Krannert School of Management
