After studying economics and finance for 4 years and working for 8 months as an intern with RBI and Network 18, I am currently working with SBI Mutual Funds as an Associate Economist in their investment team. I analyze various macro-related data and write a short report on the same for the team. Along with this, I actively research on events which can affect the investment decisions (both in equity and debt market) in the short-to-medium run.
Studying at MDAE made my initial months at work comparatively easier as I had already developed a lot of skills required – starting from strong command of economics to importance of work ethics. With multiple projects, writing numerous reports and continuous interaction with corporates helped me to improve on my data analysis, reading and writing skills. Being mentored by Dr. Tushar Poddar along with professors like Dr. Ghosh, Dr. Muthho and Dr. Hatekar made me more mature in my research style and decision-making.
