Komal Suresh graduated from R.V. College of Engineering with a bachelor’s degree in instrumentation technology in 2014. She was first exposed to the world of analytics when she joined EXL Services (a business solutions provider), as a business analyst after completing her undergraduate program.
A one-month orientation boot camp introduced Komal to the tools and techniques used in data analytics. She was trained on platforms such as SAS, SQL, VBA and Microsoft Excel, which laid the foundation for further learning that took place while she participated in real-world data mining projects. Komal was fortunate to work closely with the VP Analytics, Asia-Pacific. Her responsibilities included data analysis, data visualization, report generation and hosting weekly meetings with the client.
Komal decided to further hone her skills in the analytics domain, pursuing a Master of Science degree in business analytics and information management at Purdue. At Purdue, Komal is excited to build her technical skills in order to prepare for the data-driven business world.
