My Interviewee Mr. Niti Badrinath is working as a Senior Vice President, Head of Mobile Banking and Payments at U.S.Bank, fifth largest bank in the United States based on the total assets and fourth largest in terms of branches. He completed his under graduation majoring in Mechanical Engineering, from Indian Institute of Technology - Madras which is ranked among top technological schools in India.

Though he is extremely busy and loaded with responsibilities, he was extremely kind to spare few minutes and provided me with valuable inputs, which has further bolstered my decision of pursuing Masters.

This interview was conducted over phone and it was more like a discussion with continuous flow of information. To make sure that I do not miss out on any information, I noted down points as it also gives me a chance to revisit it and learn from it with different perspectives, each and every time. The notes that I had taken had helped me in forming a draft version of this interview essay.
