Alumni Tale: Nandakumar Pandy Pandalai ’77G

What did you study at UNH?

MBA, Graduate School, Peter T Paul College of Business and Economics

What are some of your strongest memories of UNH?

In those days, the business school (then Whittemore) was all across campus, and I used to stay in International House (now defunct) near Stillings. The daily walk was long – onward I used the walk as a prep for the class to come, and on the return, a snack or beverage at MUB PUB :).

Still remember Professors Allan Cohen, Russ Haley & Starr Schlobohm, and the huge amount I learned from them.

How do you feel your time at UNH has had an impact on where you are today?

UNH gave me a depth and breadth of vision which I carry to this day, and needless to mention had a deep impact on my career and what I am today.

Tell us about your career path to date… what have been some career milestones in your life?

After working for a couple of years in Market Research in Pittsburgh, I moved back to India and joined a multinational, Crompton Greaves, handling Domestic Appliances. In 1994 I moved to the Middle-East, and I am currently based in Dubai, as Chief Operating Officer of one the bigger business houses in the Gulf.
