Kritika Dhingra | MEM StudentDhingra, Kritika
I worked in multiple industries such as insurance, entertainment/social media and consumer goods which saw me taking up various roles ranging from software development to IT audits (SOX Compliance). My experiences have also helped me realize the importance of data analytics in every step of running a successful business. In my last position at Ernst & Young, I worked on IT SOX Compliance as a senior consultant; I worked on making sure the organization’s information technology infrastructure, applications, data use and management, policies, procedures and operational processes were compliant with the recognized standards and established policies. I was constantly applying data analytics concepts, hypothesis testing and visualizations to justify my hypothesis and get to conclusions. It was imperative for me to grow my data acumen and take steps toward educating myself with the latest tools and techniques being used in data analytics and engineering management.

I am a biotechnologist and a writer at heart. My interest always lay in Healthcare, but my undergrad and internship journey told me management was something that would fit well with me, which is the reason I am pursuing MEM with health and human systems. Most of my free time is spent finding something to read or watch with a good plot. I love writing fantasy web novels and dancing. Sometimes just going through Ted Talks in a row only to forget half of what I saw. But sure, life is sometimes hugely spontaneous!
