Student Success Stories

Duke John Solomon MJ

Duke John Solomon MJ

I am a graduate student at JSOM majoring in Information Technology and Management. I did my undergrad in Electronics and Communications Engineering in India and worked as SAP Consultant for three years. I have always wanted to leverage my career and diversify my knowledge. I found the Information Systems coursework at JSOM attractive and stood apart from other schools. ITM provides ample opportunities to build on my experience – I have specialized in the Enterprise Systems track. The coursework is designed in a way to help students pursue certifications and I had the opportunity to complete a certification in Business Process in ERP through our school. I was accepted to other colleges but I chose the Jindal School without any second thoughts.

I am an Officer in the SAP Users Group and have attended numerous SAP conferences which provides immense opportunities to network with industry professionals and to know their experiences. I am currently working as a Graduate Teaching Assistant for “Enterprise Resource Planning” and “IT for Business” where I teach both grad and undergrad students. The opportunities available in JSOM are immense and it is in our hands to make use of them. When I turn back now to look at the decision I made to join UTD, I have no regrets and I cherish the diverse experiences I have had here.

I am an international graduate student pursuing my MS in ITM at JSOM. I have worked for 4.5 years at Tata Consultancy Services as a Systems Engineer. The ITM program is the perfect place to arm yourself with both technical and management skills. As an ITM student, I feel the course structure is aligned to bridge the gap between business requirements and technology needed to achieve them.

JSOM provides a plethora of opportunities to take part in outside of your studies. JSOM gave me the platform to launch myself into the various domains I had always wanted to explore. I co-founded The Cybersecurity Club at UTD where our goal is to make people cognizant of the security risks in the Cyber world and their resolution procedures through corporate and open discussions.

As a member of the Career Management Center (CMC) Leadership Council I am prepared with job-hunting dexterity and I feel every student should benefit from the amazing events the CMC holds on campus. There are many opportunities that are provided by our university for the students and I feel a sense of responsibility to help students launch a career.

The ITM program at JSOM has grown over the years and the students have reaped a lot of success from it. The brightest students from around the globe are a part of the ITM program and continue to choose UT Dallas as a place towards enlightenment, exploring new territories and develop everlasting relationships.

This story dates to my first semester at UTD when I was registered in 3 courses. I am an enthusiast of extracurricular and volunteering/social activities, so I was looking at the different options at UTD when I came across the organization V.O.I.C.E (Vedic Organization for Inspiration Culture and Education).

V.O.I.C.E is an organization that promotes a healthy and conscious life style among individuals through various programs such as conducting workshops on spirituality, yoga, simple living, and high thinking. It is also responsible for the Krishna Lunch Program which is a non-profit, student run initiative which provides vegan/vegetarian lunch distribution program at $5 per meal on campus. It immediately attracted me and I joined as a volunteer. The previous volunteers had graduated and with the president being busy in her final semester, the responsibility was passed on to me. Since I didn’t know anybody and being a shy person, I was a one-man army distributing boxes on all the three days that the lunch is served.

Gradually I made friends, interacted with the friendly staff in SSB, offered friends free food for their volunteering service, introduced and improved customer relationships. I had also taken it as a project for my Marketing Management class! When I joined, we were selling 10-12 boxes on the three days combined and now we sell nearly 50 boxes on each of the days! The numbers don’t excite me as much as the happy faces and customers’ feedback. The joy of giving inspires and motivates me to serve more.
