It was a great learning in SFIMAR, where the foundation of my career was laid. I had a great time with the well-read professors who molded me to think from a holistic point of view on any issue related to finance and management. Now from the job profile of an equity research analyst when I look back I would like to thank SFIMAR many a times for granting me with a top class education and knowledge. All the best for the 'Next-Gen' from SFIMAR... proud to be a SFIMARIAN...

I received the quality education and the exposure through practical experience called internship. In addition, we had various renowned guest speakers from industry who groomed us to face the corporate world more confidently. Apart from industry training, we were always encouraged to participate in intercollegiate fest and various other in-house activities that helped us groom even more. SFIMAR has not only helped me understand business dynamics but has also imparted the skills to execute in a rapidly changing business environment.
