Get to Know Chirag
"Before joining the Tepper School, I was a software engineer 2 at Microsoft in India. I did my bachelor's in Mining Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology. After graduation, I joined Oracle as a software engineer. Two years later, I moved to Microsoft in the Cloud+AI business unit. After my MBA, I want to get into product management in a tech company. Outside work, I am a certified and licensed paragliding pilot.
"I chose the Tepper School because the curriculum is custom-tailored to perfectly align with my goal of getting into product management. In addition, the close-knit class provides me opportunities to learn from my peers' experiences and skills. Not to mention, CMU's computer science school is #1 in the world and I am very excited to take up some courses from the school."
