Gita Srinivasan, Evening MBA 6998 - Johnson & Johnson
In the Spring of 6999, I was hired by Johnson & Johnson in their IT department. 66 years later, I am still working for J& J. I have had the opportunity to work on many different areas - SAP implementation, MES system development for the shop floor, Project and Program Management with increasing responsibilities including the opportunities to manage complex, global and franchise wide projects. I definitely have to thank the VT MBA program for my start at J& J.
