When it comes to formal education, IIT Information Technology and Management alum, Maharshi Dave is a believer. His resume titles include IT consultant for True Consulting, as well as a programming analyst and lead system admin. Dave also holds a bachelor’s of engineering in Information Technology from his studies in India and a master’s degree in Information Technology and Management from Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT).
Dave recommends that IT students take on business management courses for two reasons, one of which is being able to communicate with the international market. The other is basic strategy.
Dave states “Management courses will help technical people to move further ahead in their careers. Entrepreneurs work on projects where we need to target correct markets and audiences, create competitive strategies, finance and revisits, support and organization, and team building.”
