After having worked as an international marketing professional for close to 5 years, Ayan decided to come back to school to pursue his dream of having a career in academia. As a professional, he worked with clients globally; a responsibility that required him to extensively travel the middle east and also facilitated his interactions with people of different countries, cultures and backgrounds.
Ayan now wishes to use this experience in understanding how these cultural differences impact consumer behaviour. He is currently pursuing research in the fields of pricing and international business.
He lives in Detroit, MI with his wife. He is a voracious reader, and a big movie buff. He also loves to travel in his spare time.
