Consultant from India builds bridge to tech marketing career

Meet Shekhar Singh, Full-time MBA Class of 2012

Shekhar Singh grew up in India, where he earned a degree in civil engineering but later moved into software and built a career as a consultant with tech giant Infosys. When he set his sights on a new career in marketing, he looked for a U.S. school where he would have freedom to experiment, build a new skill set, and bridge cultural barriers. The first in his family to live outside India, Shekhar found a home at the Foster School of Business, where he has won case competitions, started a club that connects MBA students to leading technology companies, and helped other international MBA students meet the same challenges he faced when he arrived. Along the way, he has made some new friends.
