Monesh Venkul Vommi ’24 M.S. has a passion for understanding the intricacies of business operations. He has found a field that, he believes, will be the niche that will enable him to combine that knowledge with his technical background and skills: business analytics.
Vommi has discovered a variety of ways to continue to build his skills, both in and out of the classroom. Whether he’s volunteering with nonprofit organizations to help them build apps that support their missions or conducting research as part of his coursework, Vommi continues to apply what he’s learned. He says his coursework as part of the University’s graduate program in business analytics, a STEM-designated program, has been critical.
“I have been involved in various research projects in my capstone classes, ranging from studies on supermarkets to pollution,” said Vommi, who hails from India. “These projects have provided valuable experience and knowledge that I can apply to my future career.”
‘The chance to learn from experienced professors’
Vommi is also developing an app focused on streamlining the job-search process. He calls it an “auto job finder and auto resume generator” that uses technology such as Serply and ChatGPT to search for possible jobs for an applicant.
“It generates tailored resumes to apply for those positions,” he explains. “I was inspired to create this app to streamline the job-application process and to help job seekers find their perfect match.”
It was Vommi’s mentor, Gazi Murat Duman, Ph.D., who helped him land his own position as a graduate assistant at the University. An active member of the Charger community, Vommi has served as a tutor to his peers, and he is a member of a variety of student organizations. He has also collaborated with faculty members on myriad projects. In addition to building his skills, his experience has informed his career aspirations: He hopes to one day become a professor, enabling him to mentor his own students.
“My time at the University of New Haven is helping me achieve my career goals by giving me the chance to learn from experienced professors and to work on real-world projects,” said Vommi. “I enjoy being involved in a variety of activities at the University because they allow me to connect with fellow students and contribute to their academic success.”
