Dr. Chatterjee is one of the best professors I have had in my time at UGA. He has a unique way of combining his industry insights with genuine care for his students. It was extremely helpful to get the real-world perspective Dr. Chatterjee provided as it pertains to the intersection of business and technology. Additionally, Dr. Chatterjee took the time to have one-on-one and live sessions with each of his students, which was vital to facilitating our learning during this global pandemic. Overall, I have never met a professor who is so knowledgeable in their area of expertise and so committed to sharing that knowledge with their students. I am extremely grateful that I had the opportunity to learn from Dr. Chatterjee.

While at UGA, I took two classes with Dr. Chatterjee. In each class, Dr. Chatterjee showed up with passion, knowledge and great information. From each class I took, I applied relevant skills to my job, working in consulting at Deloitte. I took an IS Leadership Class (MIST 5670) my last semester at UGA, and this class was pivotal for me. Through our case studies, I learned from various experiences at real institutions and use this knowledge daily as I encounter various situations working with clients. There was a lot of unknown in the career world, but all of my classes with Dr. Chatterjee have prepared me for the challenge. As I’ve been out of school for two years, I’ve continued to stay in touch with Dr. Chatterjee and he has been a great mentor. From inside the class, to outside the class, I’ve had nothing but great experiences. Thanks for everything!

Dr. Chatterjee’s genial demeanor on my first day of class encouraged me to introduce myself to him personally, something I seldom did with other instructors. I remember telling him that I believed he would “be one of the best professors I will ever have,” and without a doubt, he has lived up to that statement. I have gotten to learn not only is Dr. Chatterjee an amazing professor of Business Process Management, but he is also an engaging mentor who earnestly cares for his students. He went above-and-beyond in his lessons, providing easily-accessible, comprehensive lectures, flexible office hours, and even bringing in professional guest lecturers that provided substantial insight into the professional world. Moreover, his adaptability proved to be more than exceptional, seen during our transition to online-learning due to COVID-19. He was exceedingly prepared and provided a Pandemic Webinar, preparing us with applicable advice for a potentially online-based workforce.  Outside of class, I had the pleasure of attending two Coffee Series in which Dr. Chatterjee delivered his personal journey. His presentation was profound and showed his willingness to create genuine relationships with his students to help guide us academically and professionally. As much as I have learned from him, Dr. Chatterjee is also open to learning from his students. He introduced to me the concept of reverse-mentorship through his accommodation of student feedback and honest attentiveness to our personal stories. I highly recommend taking Dr. Chatterjee to not only gain a full comprehension of BPMN, but to also gain a valuable mentor, and to help better prepare for future endeavors!

Student Feedback 1, Global Digitization Trends Class, Spring 2021

Former Students

Initially, I was skeptical about how much I’d like this course, but after the first couple of weeks, all of those concerns were eviscerated. The format, structured like a doctoral seminar (speakers coming in and talking for 1-1.5hrs before the class discusses the topic) was extremely engaging. I appreciated the tech/industry side of the speakers’ presentations, but I especially enjoyed the speakers who spent more time talking about life, their experiences, and their travels. Having less than 10 students in the class was perhaps the most significant benefit. Interaction, despite a pandemic, became incredibly personal. I certainly hope this course is offered again (and in a similar format with a similar number of people) because I know just how much I benefitted from this class as a graduating senior.

Student Feedback 2, Global Digitization Trends Class, Spring 2021

Former Students

Dr. Chatterjee came to each class excited and ready to not only teach but to actively listen to our thoughts. The authenticity he radiates sets him above most professors. He genuinely loves having deep conversations with his students and challenged us to think past the material we read about. As I stated in my answer about how the class was overall, I have learned so much from Dr. Chatterjee and his class. I wish that I had taken more classes with him because he truly is that great of a professor. I deeply thank him for the time he spent with me and my peers and the knowledge (both material-wise and life-wise) he gave us. So once again, thank you, Dr. Chatterjee, truly for your time, your story, and your authentic honest nature.

Student Feedback 3, Global Digitization Trends Class, Spring 2021

Former Students

I was ambivalent about taking two classes with Dr. Chatterjee this semester, both on the same day. Starting and ending my day with him seemed like a job for a significant other, not for a student. And yet, once this class began, I discovered my respect and affection for him only increase. The man is perhaps most in his element in this class; it allows him to do what he’s best at forging relationships with individuals and driving engaging discussions with a group of students. I mentioned earlier that I derived a lot of benefit from this class as a graduating senior. That comes from the feeling of uncertainty that arises through such a pivotal and changing time in a senior’s life. The amount of wisdom I was able to gather through this class (from the speakers and Dr. Chatterjee himself) is what made this class so interesting. I never thought that this was the one I’d most look forward to in my day given how unbearably long it seemed to be slotted for.

Student Feedback 4, Global Digitization Trends Class, Spring 2021

Former Students

The way this professor prepared this class was amazing. Not only did I learn a bunch but he was there to answer any questions. He also did a great job keeping the material interesting. I think this class should be available to more students because I learned so much and it really gave me a feel for the culture of international business. I don’t see a way this class could be improved it was probably one of my favorite classes at UGA.

Student Feedback 5, Global Digitization Trends Class, Spring 2021

Former Students

This was the best class I have taken at UGA. Maybe it was the small class size, maybe it was the amazing speaker, but every day I came to this class looking forward to learning something new. I don’t think much can be improved upon except for maybe the time that the course was offered. Also one of the best instructors I have ever had. Made the class very personable and I respected him as a person and as an instructor. Very thankful for this teaching style and availability. I hope to keep in contact with him after graduation.

Student Feedback 6, Global Digitization Trends Class, Spring 2021

Former Students

Coming into this class, I was skeptical about how I would enjoy the material and how I would perform. I had limited knowledge of digitization and signed up out of a need to fill the international study abroad requirement. However, this class has become my favorite class, not only this semester but my whole college career. The material, although in-depth, was presented in ways that I could understand. The uniqueness of having guest speakers from around the world and having small group discussions about technologies makes this class truly unlike any other I have had. I feel like I have learned so much about rising trends and thoroughly enjoyed having discussions with my peers and professor. I hope for future students, that this class remains and is expanded because it truly is one of the best courses at UGA.

Dr. Chatterjee has been instrumental in my career development as a mentor. After being 6 years removed from graduating UGA and gaining strong career growth, I was in search of finding a mentor to challenge me unlock my true potential. After reaching out to Dr. Chatterjee, our relationship started taking off, specifically enabling me to start providing back to the MIS program that positioned me so well for success. Creating this relationship with UGA, from sponsoring projects to speaking every semester on RPA, has fueled my desire to mentor students post-college and help revamp the mentoring program at my firm. Because of this, and the support from Dr. Chatterjee, I am now looked at, within a firm of 500+ employees, as one of the top leaders relating to upskilling the people within the practice. Beyond the connectivity to UGA, Dr. Chatterjee has been a thought-leader in my eyes. I’m able to leverage him as a sounding board to new concepts in looking to penetrate the market and be challenged in a clear, concise way that has seen greater penetration in target audience. His empathy and true genuine nature of supporting his former students has allowed, what is a professional relationship, to turn into a more personal one. I’m blessed to have had the opportunity to have Dr. Chatterjee enter my professional career because since then, I’ve continued to unlock potential I did not know existed that has created an inflection point of fast-tracking to become one of the youngest partner of my firm. I’m indebted to him for his support and have done my best to emulate his qualities to truly treat colleagues as people first, colleagues second. Now, with my recent move back to the city of Atlanta and the backing of my firm to grow out our office, my top priority is to continue to strengthen my relationships with Dr. Chatterjee and strengthening the partnership with the MIS program supporting the next great minds.

I was fortunate to take Professor Chatterjee’s course Information Technology and Strategy when I was working on getting an MBA at UGA. It was a course blended with group work and independent studies of a range of topics from big data, cybersecurity to social media that is incredibly valuable in today’s work environments. Dave has managed to host a series of networking events that even my introverted self enjoys. He has an incredible way of humanizing topics that are typically thrown into a “work silo” like Blockchain and the Next Architecture of Business and IT. Somehow he bridges the gap between work life and real-life and reinstates the fact that business is business but driven by people. I always appreciate a new way of thinking and seeing differently!

To Whom it may concern: I was introduced to Dr. Dave Chatterjee as my instructor in IT during the UGA EMBA (7) program in 2008. Dave is an excellent instructor and is very open and accessible to his students but also a great advisor/mentor. I kept in close contact with Dr. Chatterjee in the years following my graduation and have come to rely on his insights, advice, and his generous sharing of his very wide network. Dave has helped me over the years in any way he could and not only on subjects of IT and IT management. In 2014-2017, I was tapped by my company to develop a global education department and infrastructure. Dave was an invaluable mentor for me. Recently, I joined a small start-up and was the only senior management member with a strong IT background therefore resulting in my additional role as CTO for Akesis, Inc. At that time, Dave introduced me to his IT network group and to the high-power Robert Frances Group to which he is a member. Both those resources have been key for my amateur role as a CTO. Dr. Dave has been such a great resource for me that I have introduced him to members of my network and have received genuine expressions of gratitude for the introduction from them. Dave has embraced them as if they were his own students by proxy. I am grateful to have such a strong advisor and friend in my network. Sincerely, Tim Prosser Global Director Product Marketing, CTO Akesis, Inc.

I met Dr. Chatterjee in 2009 while I was at Terry Full-time MBA program. I attended his E-commerce class and really enjoyed it. As a Chinese student, I usually was quiet and shy in most classes. Dr. Chatterjee encouraged me to be more engaged in class discussions and presentations. He valued my perspective and offered me opportunities to share my experience and knowledge with the class. He made the subject easy to understand and apply to real world issues. I was so glad that I took that class. After I graduated from Terry, I stayed in touch with Dr. Chatterjee. In the past 10 years, he has been a great friend and a fantastic mentor in many areas. He cares about youth in our community. When my son was in college, I had many conversations with Dr. Chatterjee about parenting and how we can help younger generation grow and overcome challenges. I attended his workshops for high school students and parents. He brought young college graduates to share their experience with high school students. The workshops were very practical and created environments for us to share our perspectives. Dr. Chatterjee is passionate about helping younger generation and parents and he devoted his time to our community. When I asked him to have a conversation with my son (A college student), he accepted the request and had a few conversations to guide my son to identify his career path. I have attended Dr. Chatterjee’s TECHNOLOGY ROUNDTABLE EVENTS in the past 4 years. Dr. Chatterjee bring business/technology leaders to this meet-up and make sure we get connected and become a resource to each other. He creates a great environment for us to share and learn from each other. I have enjoyed the past events and will continue to be part of this community. It is a privilege to stay connected with Dr. Chatterjee in the past 10 years and he has made great impact in my professional life. His passion of helping students grow have inspired me help people I come across in my financial service career path. He is a great asset in our community. Nancy Du Financial Advisor Ashford Advisors

I had the privilege to take Dr.Chatterjee’s course during the Spring of 2020. Due to COVID-19, our course had suddenly gone fully remote. Despite this, Dr.Chatterjee showed great versatility and managed to help us adapt to such a difficult situation. Even with the transition to online learning, Dr.Chatterjee’s class proved to be nothing short of rewarding. Having taken the course, I was exceedingly prepared for my Project Management Internship at UPS. The hands-on experience,with Signavio, allowed me to take on challenging projects throughout the summer, with confidence. I cherished the class and grew from the professional events held with various employers. This course made a tremendous impact on me when thinking about my career post undergrad. I highly recommend this course to anyone who is interested in process modeling or is looking to further their industry knowledge in the world of Information Systems. I hope you all reap the same benefits I did while in Dr. Chatterjee’s class. All the best!

Hello Professor Chatterjee, I took your Business Process Management course in June and now that life has slightly settled down for me, I wanted to reach out and thank you for making the course a great experience despite its unusual nature. I found the course to be particularly interesting and I am happy to report that during my cybersecurity internship with PwC in July, I was able to witness some of the concepts we learned in action (specifically SCRUM and agile). Again, thank you for a great experience and I hope to keep in touch. Best regards, Trinity Hobson University of Georgia ‘21 B.B.A Intended Management Information Systems

Dr. Chatterjee’s Business Process Management class has been one of the engaging and interesting classes I have taken so far in my college career. He structured the class in a way in which I felt like I was doing work in the real world. I know that once I graduate, everything that I have learned in his class will come in handy and I will have an edge over my peers. Dr. Chatterjee has worked in the corporate world so he actually knows how stuff works in the real world, and it shows through his style of teaching. Again, thanks so much for everything and I hope to cross paths with you again. Best, Ahmad Chaudhary

Akhil Hazari

Former Students

During my time at the University of Georgia, I have had the privilege of getting to know Dr. Chatterjee in a classroom, professional, and personal setting. Dr. Chatterjee is an incredibly humble, intelligent, and personable professor. In his class, I learned the fundamentals of business process management. While many other professors would stop there, Dr. Chatterjee allowed me to apply my knowledge in a real consulting project. Bottom line, Dr. Chatterjee is a fantastic professor and mentor.

Hannah Gillon

Former Students

Dr. Chatterjee has by far been one of the most influential professors, and mentors, that I’ve ever had. I first met Dr. Chatterjee by taking his BPMN class at UGA. His passion for the subject was infectious and he clearly conveyed the value of learning the skill to his students. Our 1:1 discussions together eventually evolved from BPMN concepts to thoughtful topics around career plans, the future of IT, and characteristics of leaders, all of which had an impact on motivating me to thoughtfully choose my career path and set even higher goals for myself than I had previously imagined. Dr. Chatterjee is very much a visionary and his positivity and passion for topics around IT, and life, in general, has been something I admire most about him. From his depth of knowledge in the IT space to his constant desire for improvement, Dr. Chatterjee embodies all of the characteristics I hope to hold myself one day. Thank you for everything, Dr. Chatterjee. — Hannah Gillon IS Analyst II Hyper-Converged Operations Caterpillar Financial Services Corporation

Dear Dr. Chatterjee, I wanted to reach out and thank you for the Pandemic Webinar you hosted with Mr. Holman, Mr. Killian, and Mr. Spence. Usually, I don’t expect to gain much valuable information in video assignments but this was not the case for your webinar. I found myself encouraged by the advice and wisdom that you and the other speakers gave. One part that stood out to me, in particular, was the discussion about how gaining experience, whether paid or unpaid, is considered an investment in yourself and that the pay will come later. That really resonated with me along with the part about taking this time and opportunity to diversify your interests and skills. I initially had an internship for the summer that was canceled. Thankfully, I was able to get another offer but that search period left me feeling discouraged and anxious. I feel that if I were able to watch your webinar during that time, it would have been incredibly reassuring to me and I hope my fellow peers who are going through that situation feel the same way. Again, I really appreciate how you care about us and how you took the time and effort to set up this webinar. Thank you also for your vivid passion and enthusiasm for your students and for the material you teach! I thoroughly enjoyed your class and hope to see you again in the fall semester. I hope you and your family continue to stay safe and healthy! Warmest regards, Geraldine Wong BBA Management Information Systems | University of Georgia | Honors Program

Celine Pham

Hi Doctor Chatterjee, My name is Celine Pham, and I am not sure if you remember me, but I had taken your FYOS course on Digitalization a little over 2 years ago (aside from that, you had ordered a honey cappuccino from me at Au Bon Pain my sophomore year as well). At the time, I was interested in the content covered by the course, but I did not realize how important they would be later on, in not only my college career, but also future work experience. I am currently in my third year as a marketing major, but even within this field, I have learned things in my classes that I had first heard from you. The company I am currently interning for is a talent acquisition firm for the OT/ICS Cybersecurity industry, and I actually have an interview for Siemens tomorrow morning for a summer internship. The point of this email was to reach out and say thank you for getting me started in the right direction. I’m now starting to understand the impact digitalization has on businesses and society as a whole, and the potentials it has for the future. It may not have seemed like much to a bunch of freshmen, but as I near graduation this December, it makes me grateful for professors at UGA such as yourself who are so passionate about what they teach. Thanks again,

Dr. Chatterjee, I hope everything is still great with your family and friends during this time. I just wanted to email about something that just happened to me. My dad is currently taking an online course to learn about AI for the law firm he works for and he was having problems with it and I walk in and see a base level BPMN diagram and was able to help him through the problem. I was a little bit surprised to see such wide use of what we have learned this semester and that I was able to actually help. I’m really enjoying your class and hopefully can take something else you teach before I graduate. If there’s any way I could make that happen PLEASE let me know. Anyway, hope everything is well. Thank you, Will Derrickson

I had the pleasure of taking two different courses with Dr. Chatterjee. His teaching style is different because he likes to have conversations with students during lectures rather than just talking at them. He always made an effort to engage us as students and take the extra time to remind us that he will always serve as a helping hand. Dr. Chatterjee has been very influential in my personal career journey and provided me with great advice and conversation. I thank him for the time he took to understand my personal goals and give me advice that was realistic and applicable to my life. He is a great teacher and mentor.

Hi Dr. Chatterjee, I just wanted to say thank you so much again for taking time out of your busy schedule to come speak to us today. I think I speak for everyone in the room when I say that the presentation you prepared was extremely impactful. You have led such an extraordinary life and have provided us with so many invaluable tokens of wisdom. You are such an excellent mentor to me and to so many others. Thank you for all that you do.

Many graduates remark on the lack of transferable skills acquired during undergrad. While I relate to a degree, the lessons learned and thought leadership coached in Dr. Chatterjee’s class have turned into pillars which the foundation of my career has been built upon. I currently work at one of the Big Four, and the skills developed in Dr. Chatterjee’s classes are some of the few I have been able to take into practice every day. I now work with high-level executives at the largest Fortune companies on a daily basis, and the mindset to never cease searching for efficiencies has been paramount to my career. The technologies discussed are now ones I utilize day today, and I am incredibly grateful to have had the opportunity to learn from those classes.

It is my great pleasure to have attended Professor Chatterjee’s class during my MBA program at University of North Carolina at Kenan Flagler Business School in 2015. I have learned tremendously from Professor Chatterjee, not only the knowledge he has taught from the class, but more importantly, I was inspired by the life example he has given. We have kept in touch since my MBA. We met again 2 years ago in Atlanta where I went for a business trip. From the outside,I had a glamorous life – great career, traveling around the country for business, a family with two beautiful kids. But internally I was at the bottom – job was exhausting, family relationship had fallen apart. I was never home due to business travel. When we were having dinner, Prof. Chatterjee learned about my challenge in life overall, he not only encouraged me to pursue my passion in career, he told me about how he was dedicated to his family, children, and ultimately a great career in the academic world. His words greatly encouraged me to keep fighting and turn my ship around. His ability to mentor the younger generation is unmatched. 2 years later, I am proud to say that I am in a much better position in life overall. I am feeling very grateful for the support and words of wisdom that Prof. Chatterjee has given and the true life example he has provided for me and undoubtedly for a lot of people.

I hope you are doing well and have enjoyed your summer. I cannot believe it is already time for classes to begin again or the fact that I will not be in classes anymore since graduation. I moved to New York two weeks ago for my new job at Protiviti, and I am currently at training sessions in Chicago. 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. There are many people here that did not take a class in this, and I definitely feel as though I have an advantage because of how much I learned in your class. You can stress this to your new students this semester because they will not want to forget anything they learn in this class. I know you travel to lead discussions and give talks often. Are there any coming up that you are looking forward to?

I was a student in Dr. Chatterjee’s Information Technology and Strategy MBA class at the 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 cybersecurity 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 about 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!

Thank you for being a great professor and preparing us for the real world.

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.

Phillip Nguyen

I hope you are doing well. In case you forgot, my name is Phillip Nguyen and I was in your BPM class 2 semesters ago (Fall 2017). 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 large-scale security implementation and my team was very impressed! The process improvement project with Zaxby’s that we completed that semester really enhanced my learning of BPM and provided me with great hands-on experience. I’m happy to say I’ll be joining Deloitte full-time as a Cyber Risk Consultant in Fall 2019 after graduating in May. 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.

Let me, first of all, say a big “Thank You”. By giving me the opportunity to be a student in both your BPM but especially the IS Leadership Class this semester, I believe that I have discovered new areas to use my potential as an MIS student to achieve great results in the future.”

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!

Dave is a visionary for how technology can enable improvements in business and academic settings. He clearly communicates his ideas in an easy style that distinguishes him from many. He sees the strategic value of technology as an enabler for success and can clearly apply that lens to any situation he encounters, in order to assess and recommend a path forward. I would highly recommend Dave.

Dr. Russell Mumper

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.

“An outstanding thought-provoking and engaging presentation by Dave Chatterjee on many emerging technologies, many of which are currently being investigated by the CDC. It is always a pleasure to listen to Dave, his enthusiasm and subject matter expertise clearly shows, and he is not afraid to challenge conventional thinking.”

Dr. Paul Klute

Academic Leaders

I think the report is spot on. It really addresses the core problems/opportunities related to data literacy that UGA is facing and it gives some very viable and realistic options on addressing those problems/opportunities. Luckily, some of the findings are already things that we are working on as an institution, so at least our findings are consistent. I also think it presents a good number of things, like the idea of additional training and a “data driver’s license” structure that can be further built out to bolster our data literacy efforts. I also think that this report is something that I can share widely across the institution and get buy­in from invested units. All­ in­ all, I think that this is a great set of recommendations that really got at the core question that we were attempting to address. I appreciate everyone’s work on the project.

Dave is an exceptional leader and did an outstanding job as Chairman of the Board for the Atlanta chapter of SIM. Under his leadership membership increased, new special interest groups were created, and the content of the meetings was always of great interest to the members. His tireless effort and years of dedication in making SIM one of the best professional groups in Atlanta will always be appreciated by the many members of SIM. Thanks, Dave.
