MIhaylo College of Business and Economics
Alumna Takes on Big Data in Entertainment
Dec. 18, 2018
For Tanvi Bobde ’17 (M.S. information systems), an interest in “Game of Thrones” along with an education and skills in data analytics converge in her current role at the Los Angeles offices of HBO.
“I’m a huge fan, and after watching the season seven finale episode, I was awestruck. Just out of curiosity, I was going through their audience statistics, with the ability to understand all the terminologies and the analytical breakdown, thanks to the information systems and decision sciences program at Mihaylo,” says Bobde.
"It then struck me that I should look up HBO’s career page for any data analytics openings. I wanted to be a small part of the larger whole that entertains the world. I always wanted to work in a creative environment that keeps me on my toes, and the entertainment field was just the right fit.”
