My greatest challenge when I applied to business school was: Balancing full-time work along with applications.

About me: Born and raised in Mumbai, I studied a Bachelor of Commerce degree with a specialisation in Accounting & Finance from HR College of Commerce & Economics. During my undergraduate studies, I was the head of various committees, organised several college festivals and completed a range of internships in different fields, where I discovered my passion for finance.

After my undergraduate degree, I worked at Deutsche Bank, Mumbai, as a financial analyst where I analysed complex financial instruments. I decided to pursue my masters a year later to enhance my knowledge of finance and learn from my peers.

No two days at LBS are the same. The fast-paced and dynamic environment at LBS, with learnings both inside and outside the classroom, helps me learn from diverse teams and broaden my perspectives. The range of electives and the ability to tailor the programme, along with the GIFT and London Business Challenge Week, attracted me to LBS.

I am passionate about exploring new countries, meeting new people and learning about different cultures.

Three topics I can be approached about: Moving to London; LBS application; student life.
