Seema Madgaoonkar, MSEM '17

Senior Software Engineer
Fidelity Investments

Degree and Major: B.S. in Engineering

Where were you in your career and what drove your decision to go back to school?

“I joined Fidelity as Senior Software Engineer in 2009 and then I had son in 2011 I wanted to grow in the organization but I didn’t have confidence to take up more responsibility and I felt that I don’t have leadership skills to move to higher roles. I thought having master degree will boost my confidence to take up more responsibility. Initially I thought about MBA but I wanted to stay in technology so Tufts course felt like right fit.”

Has there been a professor or module that has impacted you and why?

“So far leadership courses and business strategy module have been very helpful. Business strategy really helped me understand company I work in in much better way. Leadership course have taught me so much about how to be a good leader and good person in the corporate world.”
