When she joined the masters program in Finance at GGU in Jan 2011, she already had an MBA degree and professional experience of close to six years working in the renowned financial institutions in India. Along with taking courses, she also held the position of VP Finance at Campus Currents (GGU's student's magazine) where she had the opportunity to apply the financial skills that she learned in the class room.
