During my Bachelor in Commerce at one of the most prestigious colleges of Bangalore I started to work for PriceWaterhouse Coopers as an auditor and then joined a private firm to gain expertise and experience in the field of corporate taxation. Then I crossed over to the business of silk manufacture and trading as the Business Manager. After obtaining my qualification as a Chartered Accountant, I joined Infosys as a Credit Risk Analyst and specialized in analysing financial institutions.

Amsterdam is a beautiful city. Though the cost of living is high, the living conditions are pretty good. This friendly, respectful and courteous environment is important from a learning perspective too.
There are not many business schools in the world that can provide a world-class management programme, like the Amsterdam MBA, delivered by best faculty in one year. The extremely diverse peer group not only stimulates intellectual discussions but also provides unique global experience. The learning model is predominantly case-based and is very appealing. Aspects like corporate interactions, leadership development programmes, exchange programmes and student clubs add to the effective 
learning curve.

At the Amsterdam Business School everything is really well organised and time punctuality is highly observed. In my opinion, three factors primarily decide a person's successful career - knowledge, skills and network. The Amsterdam MBA, with a class of future industry leaders, has been my best decision so far. Upon graduation, I would like to join an investment bank in London. I am confident that the MBA learning will further enhance my knowledge and skills to make an immediate impact.
