Jyothirmai (Jo) Gang Peddhinti

Full-Time MBA, Class of 2014

Marketing, Competitive and Organizational Strategy
Digital Channel Manager
Eli Lilly and Company
Internship: Excellus Blue Cross Blue Shield

After completing an undergraduate degree in biological sciences from the Birla Institute of Technology and Science, Pilani in Rajasthan, India, Jo Peddhinti accepted a position as a DNA analyst with the New York-based multinational biotech firm Histogenetics. Jo soon decided, in order to move her career in health care forward, she needed to pursue an MBA.

Perhaps what Jo didn’t expect were how the challenges of a Simon MBA would inspire her to new levels of success and personal fulfillment. “Faculty like Ryan McDevitt and classes with such diverse students pushed me to achieve more,” she says. “The case studies and discussions redefined what I considered my limits. That has surprised me and instilled a new level of confidence in me. I am a far-better leader now than ever before and find myself constantly aiming to do much better.”

Jo also found significant value in the practical experience she gained after her first year of study. “My summer internship was at Excellus Blue Cross Blue Shield,” she says. “It helped me develop market strategies to face national competition in the post-health care reform market. With a strong academic platform accompanied by great hands-on experience, I am confident I can achieve my career goals.” In fact, Jo has a reason to feel confident. After her completing her MBA, she joined the international pharmaceutical company Eli Lilly as a digital channel manager.
