What People Are Saying
Dr. Russell Mumper
Former Vice Provost, The University of Georgia, Athens, GA, USA, July 5, 2017
"I wish to express my gratitude to you for your invaluable leadership over the past two academic years (2015-2017) as Co-chair and then Chair of UGA’s Program Review and Assessment Committee (“PRAC”). I directly observed your diligent and thoughtful leadership to address major issues, facilitate discussions, and propose changes to the Academic Program Review Policy 4.12-2 that were subsequently endorsed and approved by the thirty-faculty member PRAC and University Council. I feel strongly that the revised policy is sound and will serve UGA very well in the future. Importantly, I believe you were the right leader at the right time. It is not surprising that your website states one of your areas of expertise is “change management.” UGA is fortunate to have you as a faculty member."

Senior VP and CIO, Fiserv, Atlanta, GA, USA
"I have known Dr. Dave Chatterjee (Dave) for many years now. When I arrived in Atlanta several years ago, Dave helped me connect with the community of senior IT leadership by encouraging me to join the Atlanta Chapter of SIM (Society for Information Management is the premier international community of senior IT practitioners and thought leaders) and also inviting me to participate in his CXO panel discussions. I have seen him lead the SIM Atlanta Chapter with great effectiveness for many years. I also had the pleasure of engaging with him in numerous discussions on how to be a very effective leader in the technology space and have found his thoughts and wisdom to be most enlightening and inspiring. As someone who participated in his panel discussions, I can vouch for his ability to moderate CXO panel discussions in business and technology topics. Dave is very thorough and meticulous in his approach and preparation, which helps him deliver spectacular results."

Consultant, Protiviti, NYC (August 9, 2018)
"I wanted to reach out and thank you for your preparation. You have helped start my career in many ways, and I feel more comfortable in my business vocabulary and knowledge because of your teaching. We have spent so much of our time this week mimicking a real life project which has consisted of four different long process maps. Without your BPMN class, I would be so confused and lost."
Suzette (Shelly) Vanderhave
PMP, CSM, Senior Project Manager, Information Systems at PulteGroup, Atlanta, GA, USA
"I was a student in Dr. Chatterjee’s Information Technology and Strategy MBA class at University of Georgia in 2017. He is truly a phenomenal professor and has a strong passion for discussing the role of technology in business and our lives. Every class was full of very interesting material, and Dr. Chatterjee always had relevant experiences to share with us. It’s important for professors in MBA programs to have current experiences from the field to share and draw connections between textbook topics and the real world. Dr. Chatterjee is very clearly active in the cyber security industry and shared many real-world examples with us. He did not only teach the basics of what is going on in the technology world today but also challenged us to think about the future. He showed a great deal of interest in students' experiences with their own organizations and encouraged us to share with the class. Many students in my cohort speak positively of this class and Dr. Chatterjee. I have not talked with anyone who did not find it extremely interesting and impactful. I would jump at the chance to take another course taught by him!"
Senior Credit Officer, Senior Vice President at Signature Bank of Georgia, Atlanta, GA, USA
"I had the pleasure of having Dr. Chatterjee as a professor at the University of Georgia MBA Program. Dr. Chatterjee has a true passion for teaching that extends beyond the classroom. He clearly articulates and conveys the subject matter and consistently challenges others to apply the information to real world applications. His introspective approach, combined with his passion for continual improvement, is an inspiration to those he encounters. Dr. Chatterjee earns my highest recommendation."
"I wanted to reach out and thank you for providing me a great foundation in BPM because it became very useful during my internship this past summer. I had the opportunity to intern with Deloitte in their Cyber Risk practice. I used BPM to help improve processes in a large-scale security implementation and my team was very impressed! Thank you once again and I hope you’re having a great start to your semester. Don’t forget to stress to your students how important and fundamental your class is."
"I hope your school year has started off great! I just wanted to email and let you know that your BPM class has exponentially aid me in the short few weeks of my new career. I am working for PwC doing consulting specifically in Workday Financials. Your class has allowed me to understand not only the bigger picture but also modeling the processes. Thank you for being a great professor and preparing us for the real world."
