Rohit earned his bachelor's degree in engineering with a focus on information technology from Mumbai University, where he played varsity soccer and served on the student committee of the Mumbai Chapter of the Computer Society of India — an organization that promotes the advancement of the theory and practice of computer science and IT. The Computer Society of India plays an instrumental role in guiding the country's IT industry.
Growing up in Mumbai, Rohit Chandran had two passions — technology and soccer. Not much has changed.
After graduation, Rohit moved to Bloomington and earned a master's degree in computer science from IU's School of Informatics and Computing. During grad school, he also taught introductory web development to freshmen and sophomores.
Rohit currently works as a senior developer at IU Communications, the university's marketing and communications agency. He helps build tools and services that not only assist clients on all university campuses and but also help enhance and strengthen the IU brand. Working at IU Communications has also helped Rohit make lasting friendships with people who value inclusion.
For Rohit, helping someone feel included is as simple as inviting them for a coffee break at Starbucks.
Never one to rest for long, Rohit is now embarking on a new challenge—earning an MBA from the Kelley School of Business. This fall, he began learning how to apply his technology and marketing expertise to gain a deeper understanding of how businesses in various industries operate across diverse cultures around the world.
No matter how busy he gets, Rohit will always find time to have fun. He's a passionate runner who makes time to captain a local kickball team and rarely misses a chance to watch Manchester United on the big screen.
