Class of 2019

I was born and raised in Chennai, India. I qualified as a chartered accountant. Before joining this programme, I worked in India, then did a stint in London for a year and then moved to Hong Kong where I have been working for the last 4 years. I have worked for over 6 years in leading banks (Goldman Sachs, Standard Chartered Bank) in different roles and functions. Through my professional education background, I gained attention to detail, academic rigour, knowledge of finance and its application methods. What I felt I needed to accelerate my career and be able to take up leadership roles was the ¬†ability to demonstrate management skills and increase my business acumen, to widen my horizons, and to get a solid knowledge of the industry I am aspiring to move into. I believe, among a plethora of other things, that only an MBA can offer this learning which is invaluable in today’s dynamic world.

Having lived in Hong Kong, I could see the heritage associated with this institution and I wanted to be associated with this prestigious university which is ranked among the best in the world. That is why I chose HKU MBA.

Since joining this MBA programme, I have been constantly juggling course work and extra-curricular work In the capacity of class representative and as an AVP of the Women in Leadership Club, which I’m thoroughly enjoying and learning a lot from along the way!

I am really excited to progress through the rest of my HKU MBA journey and by the opportunities that await upon its completion!
