About me: Sairam is originally from India and moved to the United States at age 11. He earned a BA with distinction in economics and political science from Amherst College. After Amherst, Sairam worked as an investment banking analyst at Morgan Stanley in New York, helping raise capital for not-for-profit hospitals. Most recently, Sairam worked at CapitalOne in London as a strategy and analytics manager, where he managed the customer management strategy team. In this role, he worked with product managers and tech teams to create new lending products, launch new digital tools and develop new initiatives to retain customers. After his summer internship at a consulting firm in London was postponed due to the Covid-19 crisis, Sairam instead interned in various tech startups in London.
Sairam chose to attend LBS due to its emphasis on developing an international perspective and the diversity of the student body. His interests include hiking, tea, films, and global politics. After LBS, Sairam expects to work in strategy consulting in London, combining his love of client-facing work and problem solving.
