Why did you choose to study MSc Management at Imperial College Business School?

With my engineering degree, I had the technical skills but felt that I lacked the skills required to see the bigger business picture. With its excellent reputation, international student mix, the calibre of its faculty and proximity to the financial capital London, Imperial College Business School was my first choice to pursue MSc Management.

Describe a typical day in your current role

Every day is different because consultancy work takes me to different departments on a day-to-day basis. On most Fridays, I give presentations to senior management regarding my findings. This is normally followed by several rounds of critical analysis and if successful I get the opportunity to bring about change.

How has the Business School helped develop your career?

The School helped me realign my thought process, which until then was focussed on technical aspects, so that I began to appreciate the commercial facets of businesses.

The presence of an excellent careers service guiding me through specific career requirements helped me get my job as Associate at Ernst & Young.

What do you miss most from your days at the Business School?

I will always cherish the times spent in the thought stimulating environment within the cosy vaults at Tanaka Building. Though the days at Imperial College have passed, memories are eternal.

How do you keep in touch with your Business School class mates?

I’m in touch with literally everyone! Often via Facebook, and I meet up with friends from the Business School on weekends and during alumni get-togethers.
