Student Spotlight: Rishabh Jajodia
Industrial Engineering Senior, Rushabh Jajodia is wrapping up his time at Purdue. A May 2020 graduate with a minor in Management and a certificate in Entrepreneurship and Innovation, Rushabh is reflecting on his four years in West Lafayette and how he has grown his skill set and confidence to begin his career in a quickly changing world.
"The ENTR program has given me first-hand insight into the application of my technical skills to the real world. As a result of this program, I feel I am much better prepared to take on different challenges in the professional world with an entrepreneurial mindset."
Originally from Gujarat, India, Rushabh has been heavily involved as a leader on Purdue's campus, working in PurdueTHINK Consulting where he has served as President, Director of Project Management, Project Manager, and is currently a Senior Advisor. He has also been involved with Rising Professional Central Committee and has served as an Ambassador for the Certificate in Entrepreneurship and Innovation Program.
As an Ambassador for the Program, Rushabh finds joy in seeing underclassmen discover an entrepreneurship curriculum that meeets their educational needs. Rushabh shares with prospective ENTR students that,
"if they want to see how their skill can be applied to the real world and how they can bring new ideas to life, then they should seriously consider pursuing an Entrepreneurship certificate."
Outside of campus, Rushabh has worked as an Operations Management intern at GE and a Strategy & Analytics intern at Proctor & Gamble. After graduation, he is excited to begin his position as a Business Technology Analyst focusing on Technology Strategy at Deloitte in San Francisco.
Rushabh is a student who will be greatly missed at Purdue because of the positive impact he made on others during his time here. We look forward to seeing the positive impact he makes on the world.
