Student Spotlight: Darya Tarasova
I am finishing my second year of the Master of Business Administration program in the Perdue School of Business. I graduated from Samara State Aerospace National Research University, Russia, with a bachelorís and masterís degree in computer science. As a student at Samara State Aerospace National Research University, I enjoyed working on campus and participating in many activities, such as writing for the university newspaper and taking part in sports and science competitions.
I now enjoy my work at BEACON as it reflects both my interests in IT and business fields. My current projects involve dashboards and databases, web design, and ďI-decideĒ models. I love working on a variety of projects. My passion is the dashboard projects, where we bring together several fields to create business intelligence tools for our clients. I find dashboards extremely interesting and think that they are an invaluable tool in data analysis. My work at BEACON allows me to apply the knowledge that I receive in the M.B.A. program to real business processes.
This summer I also started a new and even more exciting journey Ö becoming a mother. My five-month old daughter became the "youngest BEACONite," as we call her here at work. I am looking forward to graduation this year and all the exciting new challenges and opportunities that life will bring. But at the same time, I know that Iím going to miss the M.B.A. program and the people that Iíve met here during my wonderful time as a student at SU.
