Thesis supervisor: Phang Riyang.
Read about Atobek’s plans and what inspired him to write a thesis on this topic:
My name is Atobek Rahimshoev, and I am the American University of Central Asia (AUCA) alumni from Tajikistan. At AUCA I was majoring in Business Administration with a concentration in Finance. I am interested in Data Science and in my free time I paint portraits.
During my senior year, I was working as a part-time IT project manager, and I became genuinely interested in Servant Leadership, a leadership philosophy in which the main goal of the leader is to serve ones’ subordinates. Individual employee has a personal view of what a typical leader is, when a leader fits the prototypical profile of his/her subordinate, the subordinate will view the leader in a more positive manner and will be less likely thinking about leaving the organization, which save a lot of money for the organization. What if the prototypical profile fits the characteristics of Servant Leader and how does it affect the intentions of the subordinate to leave an organization since employee turnover is an expensive cost for an organization! With the motivation to answer the given question, I chose it as my senior thesis topic.
I am looking forward to my greatest accomplishment in the future, but one of my great accomplishments is receiving the best senior thesis award at AUCA.
My future career plan is to pursue a career in Data Science.
