Beyond Consulting: Nikhil Sarnot
The Mentorship Program is a core component of the Master of Science in Information Systems curriculum. The program connects MSIS students with Seattle-based IT leaders through a unique one-to-one professional relationship that can bridge the gap between academic concepts and real world practices. Students meet with their mentors for the first time during Fall quarter.
Campbell says she appreciated her time with Nikhil and that he was genuinely always available if she had questions. “He brought along other people he was mentoring from PwC and it was helpful to speak with these people and connect to them and their work and goals.”
When asked why he’s a mentor he says, “I enjoy the energy these students have.” He talks openly about being a mentor and the value it brings to students. He credits the guidance he received from his previous formal/informal mentors as one of the reasons he’s part of the MSIS program. He enjoys, “helping to create young professionals who are ready to do something important with their lives and their careers.”
As for Kimberley, though her formal program time with Nikhil has ended, she still stays in contact with him and knows that she’s created a lasting business connection and a friend.
I can call him at any time with that list of companies I’m interested in working for, or to discuss a job opportunity. I know that he’ll be there to help.
