No Comments

The term ‘globalism’ has become overused and often misused. Infact we might say that it has actually been devalued to the level of the every day language of buzzword brandishing Marketing pundits. Such a freewheeling usage has perhaps propelled many CEO (or potential CEOs) to launch into a global plan or strategy without proper consideration of the demands and dynamics of the international market place. Many would be globetrotters neglect the acquision of language skills knowledge of foreign trade and tax laws, accounting standards etc all of which are necessary to effectively “go global”. Superficial knowledge only leads to failure.

This has indeed happened and while there is no doubt that neglecting to capture the gains achievable in overseas market is equally suicidal, misguided attempts at competing globally (along with rapidly developing opportunities in the global marketplace) have placed a dramatic premium on individuals who take the time to properly train themselves in international business. For me, LSBF MBA CFA is significant component of this training.

I foresee my own career in the direction of Europe, America business, initially from an advisory perspective (i.e., investment banking or consulting). This prophecy, in part, has evolved from my past experience in CMIE, which in turn, have formed my opinion about certain opportunities that should emerge in future.

Over the course of experience I demonstrated skills in performing broad range of consulting services for chartered Accountants, Researchers, Investment companies, Commercial banks, manufacturing companies etc. Manage client relationships and worked in joint client relationship and consultants teams formulating recommendation for change. Evaluating investment opportunities analyzing and valuing investment proposals to forecast IRR (internal rate of return) business models and strategy analysis of companies. Provide analytical and financial modeling support for preparation of term sheets and due diligence reports. I also have interest in reading and constructing Balance Sheet, Income Statement and Cash Flow Statement. At the same time I also can understand some of the basic financial ratios, valuation knowledge using DCF and Multiple. I have good internet research skills. Financial Analysis of Indian Listed stocks entailing: some data entry of financial data acquired from annual reports, stock market release media etc. I also create financial models in (MS Excel.) to forecast key company financial metrics PER, EPS, NPAT. Etc. Monitor the stock for changes (New information especially quarterly & half yearly earnings reports) and keeping all the models up to date.

When introduced to finance and accounting in high school and in graduation days I realized that it interestingly qualified as a subject of both arts and science. It was an area defined by precise rules, principles and axioms and yet there was tremendous scope for self expression in the form of interpretation and analysis. This facet of accounting and finance intrigued me very mush and I decided to pursue further studies in MBA in finance and CFA.

During my post graduate studies, I equipped myself as best I could with various tools used in financial analysis. I obtained rigorous training in Accounting and Finance. After completing graduation I joined Indian Institute of Banking and Finance as I was eager to see how one might use finance to tackle real life problems, where simplified models and assuming away of problems may offer no respite. I did some very interestingly work in CMIE, which is described in my resume.

I want to delve deeper into the subject to be able to carry out independent research and analysis, hence my decision to join MBA and CFA program at LSBF.

During my graduation studies, I aim to equip myself with advanced tools and develop my analytical and research capabilities. I want to get an excellent command over finance to be able to confront stochastic financial data with exact models of financial theories and also for empirical verification of other models which might otherwise be set in partial equilibrium framework. I expect to emerge as a financial engineer and an expert in financial modeling.

I want study at LSBF, as it emphasizes on the rigorous and analytical tools that are necessary for academic research. I have well developed analytical and mathematical skills and I want to exploit these skills to the greatest extent. I feel the help and guidance that can be provided to me by the distinguished of your institute will be invaluable.

Throughout my school and undergraduate education, I have been keen participant in extra-curricular activities. Getting elected as the School pupil leader helped me organizational and interpersonal skills. At my graduation level I have been involved in the annual cultural fest as the head of control team. I have also taken part in dramatics and made contribution to society.

The years of undergraduate education have been an enriching experience both academically and otherwise and I am determined to maintain the high levels of the excellence throughout my career.

My immediate objective is an MBA in finance a rapidly evolving field with an immense potential for research. I wish to follow it up with a CFA, to pursue a career in investment management and experience the excitement and satisfaction of being at the forefront of this expanding field.

I am sure if I am given opportunity to study at your institute that attracts some of the best students from all over the world, it will provide an environment competitive enough to bring out the best in me.
