Featured alumni

alumnus-vikas-narulaVikas Narula, a graduate of our BS in Computer Science, is the owner and founder of Keyhubs, a Minneapolis-based management software and consulting firm that uncovers a company’s “hidden organization” — the informal network of relationships between workers that shows how work actually gets done.

“To me, entrepreneurship is about more than making money,” says Vikas, “It’s really a spiritual journey, a journey of self-discovery and growth. MIU taught me that. MIU gave me a perspective on life that helped me see things beyond the material. It helped me understand what matters most.”
