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!
