Satya Nadella has said he, "always wanted to build things." He knew that computer science was what he wanted to pursue.But that emphasis was not available when he attended Manipal University in India, where he got a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering. “And so it was a great way for me to go discover what turned out to become a passion,” he says


Satya Nadella worked with Sun Microsystems, as a member of its technology staff, prior to joining Microsoft in 1992.
The company was building an operating system that ultimately would be known as Windows NT, and needed team members who understood Unix and 32-bit operating systems, he says. Nadella wanted to complete his master’s degree and take the Microsoft job. He did both.

Nadella worked as the senior vice president of R&D for the Online Services Division and vice president of the Microsoft Business Division.
