He moved to the USA to pursue an M.S. degree in Computer Science at the Unversity of Wisconsin, Milwaukee.  Before joining Microsoft in 1992, Nadella worked for Sun Microsystems as a technology staff. Like most Indians, Nadella is very fond of cricket and also played for his school team. He gives credit to the game for teaching him a thing or two about leadership and teamwork.
