Get to Know Sherwin

"After graduating with an industrial and systems engineering degree from the University of Florida, I moved up to Atlanta, Georgia, where I worked as an IT consultant for a software startup. I was fortunate to have worked on a variety of projects that allowed me to help my clients solve their business problems in the warehousing/distribution space. I'm pursuing an MBA to strengthen both my analytical and leadership skills.

"I chose Tepper because of the school's focus on solving business problems through a technology lens. I believe that as we continue to merge our lives with technology, we need leaders who can help guide that transformation. I was drawn to Tepper because of the small class sizes and the student body's collaborative nature. After the MBA, I plan to work as a product manager in the technology space.

"In my spare time, I like traveling, hiking, and endurance sports."
