Students Say:

“Professor Hosanagar manages to keep his Enabling Technologies course absolutely current and applicable to the real world, while maintaining a very pleasant (and many times funny) atmosphere in the classroom. It is always nice to witness the clarity of his thoughts, both in class and as a project advisor. It was definitely one of my favorite courses at Wharton and I would strongly recommend it to anyone interested in a career related to the tech industry. Lots of learning, lots of laughing.”

“Professor Hosanagar’s Enabling Technologies course was one of my top 3 experiences at Wharton. For our project, he wholeheartedly supported our ideas of making the class more social via a blog/twitter/FB page/UStream video lecture. But beyond being a great instructor and mentor, he’s got a hilarious sense of humor and can dance like those kids on Glee.”
