My working experience in the information technology sector for almost 16 years has afforded me the ability to hold various positions of a leadership nature. This has equipped me with a wide variety of knowledge in the business and information technology sector. In business, marketing is a key component in ensuring that a product is received well by the customers. As a software solutions architect and an application programmer, I have dealt with customers both locally in India and oversees that have been impressed with my work and this has opened up opportunities for me. Such exposure has led me to become an Associate/Assistant Vice president for J.P Morgan Chase and Co.
Products that have a competitive edge ensure that marketing of the product is successful. Incentives, such as price subsides of fees and the apparent availability of an MBA program that offers part-time classes, is what drove me to select this school for my studies. Moreover as a resident of Delaware, it makes it even more convenient to go for my studies here at the University of Delaware. Most of the residents in the business circle speak highly of the MBA program at the University of Delaware. I give credit to what you offer because people who have been through the program have benefited a lot and recommend the University to anyone.
Doing a basic search online on the available part-time or online MBA degrees brings among the search results the University of Delaware. The internet, now a remarkably efficient and powerful marketing tool, is highly effective in doing this. Additionally, the MBA program at the University of Delaware is ranked among the best in the world. This is critical in attracting potential students since there are many universities that offer MBA programs that may not be of the highest quality. According to Lockhart (2005), there has been an increase in the number of internet users in the world. Hence, it makes sense to use it as a tool to reach most people. The internet provides valuable access to a lot of information in the most convenient way possible. People who are not close to the university are not inconvenienced by having to travel to the University. Gay and Charlesworth (2007) suggest that the use of internet increases the ability of the university to reach new students that are geographically far from the University. I would suggest to the university, in order to reach students such as me who are mainly in their fulltime jobs, to do more campaigns in the major and even minor organizations directly. Additionally, as a marketing effort the university might indicate some of the successful people in the business world who have undergone through the MBA program at the University as a way of showing their credibility and effectiveness.
My experience in the information technology sector has aided me to work for many companies where I have acquired both leadership and managerial skills. Companies that I have worked for apart from J.P. Morgan Chase & Co include Oracle Corporation, Computer Science Corporation, Sun Microsystems, and KBC Bank at Brussels in Belgium. My successful implementation of projects with the Belgian Government has afforded me the opportunity to return there for another project. An educational opportunity in this graduate school would allow me to attain my goals of increasing my career goals in the business and information technology sector. This will increase my managerial and leadership skills that are vital in the competitive business world.
