My name is Joseph Porcelli and I am a Masters Candidate at the Center for Information and Communication Sciences at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana. I am currently in the home stretch of the rigorous program and will be moving to Indianapolis, Indiana once my degree is completed to join Eli Lilly as a Sr. IT Analyst on the Global Infrastructure Services team.
I previously attended Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, Michigan where I studied telecommunications and information management while minoring in business. I feel that my education at both an undergraduate and graduate level will help me tremendously as I move into the workplace.
I am looking forward to taking the ICS 698 course with Dr. Jay Gillette because I believe it will help further my knowledge of applying theory and practice to better understand praxis. I believe that it is important to think conceptually when trying to understand why things are the way they are or how to possibly improve upon a current way of doing things. I hope that with the knowledge I will gain from the ICS 698 course, that it will enhance my understanding of how R&D management and technology leadership can lead to a successful global advantage.
I am always looking for professional connections. Please feel free to connect with me on LinkedIn @ https://www.linkedin.com/in/joseph-porcelli-a9738b8a/
