Process Mining Career Journeys

anand tech mahindra

My name is Anand Kumar and I was one of the first students in India who completed the Process Mining Expert Certification Programme by Celonis. I dived into the world of Process Mining and my career skyrocketed since then. By developing my skills through the Celonis Academic Alliance, I now work as Principal Process Mining Consultant at Tech Mahindra. Here I have implemented multiple Process Mining projects, and due to the success of these projects, my team and I are looking to expand and hire additional Process Miners.

Hired to Nokia

We are part of the nine students from Nova Information Management school. Welearned about Process Mining and Process Mining at Nokia through a university class. The Celonis skills we learned in class were fundamental for our career. We directly entered the Process Mining job market through a placement opportunity at Nokia. Nokia co-delivered our Process Mining class and offered us an entry position right out of the classroom.

I am Patrick, a former student of FAU Nuremberg Erlangen. I took the Celonis Process Mining Expert Certification. I am proud to say that I have founded my own consulting company. The Celonis Academic Alliance Program paved the way for me and my two co-founders to start this company. We greatly appreciate the friendly and helpful cooperation since then. Where we are today would not have been possible without the Academic Alliance, and we look forward to continuing to work together successfully.

Daniel Newberry

I am Daniel Newberry, an Associate Technology Consultant at Celonis. My experience with Celonis started with my MSBA capstone class. In this three-week project, the Celonis team encouraged us to be creative in our approach to find new business opportunities as well as giving us immense support through the community. Despite Celonis being new to us, we were surprised to see how well our experiences and expertise as students translated to Celonis’ EMS. To this day, Celonis gives me the support I need to be a process mining champion and inspires me to be a proactive leader.
