Why did you decide to attend Saunders College of Business at RIT?
I decided to come to Saunders because of its outstanding course offerings in Finance and MIS, amazing faculty and co-op opportunities.
What's great about your co-op?
My work about researching stocks and preparing buy/sell reports is the most favorite part of my job. So, I should say its typically my work that I love the most and wish to continue loving it. Apart from that the experience in itself is amazing. My co-workers are great, especially the analyst at the firm. They have in depth knowledge about equity markets and are willing to share and help me grow to the maximum potential. Until now, every time I prepare a report I think to myself that it is because of the report I am about to prepare that a number of clients will either lose their investments or gain the maximum. I believe this is a great responsibility in itself and I hope I can help the clients and the company achieve their goals.
In what ways has Saunders/RIT prepared you for the job market?
Being an International student, I was very confused about where to start from and how to go over and reach my potential. Saunders, especially my professors and co-op advisor, helped overcome my struggle. They have helped me find my passion and give the maximum potential. The diversity of students in RIT has helped me prepare myself with all sorts of conversations. Finally, being a tech institute, RIT has opened up a lot of methods of research through which I have been able to deliver my tasks efficiently. Also, the courses in Finance and MIS have helped me by providing the right knowledge, practical application using case analysis, working with different people in teams etc.
What do you feel is the most distinctive advantage gained from your Saunders Experience?
The case analysis, presentations and other practical analysis during the courses have helped me catch an eye towards researching efficiently. Also, I am greatly thankful to my finance and MIS prof and my co-op advisor to be with me and help me out during my struggle times.
