Ambition fuels success
in any chosen career.  But ambition without
taking the necessary steps to get there is just a wish.  I am no wishful thinker.  Ever since high school, I have taken every
opportunity to excel in my academics, knowing that my formal education make up
the building blocks that shape my career to where I want it to be.  It is my career ambition to be a successful business
and finance manager and I made a good start completing a dual baccalaureate in
Hospitality Management and Diploma of Hotel Management at the State Institute
of Hotel Management & Catering Technology in Trichy, India with distinction
in 2009.

Thereafter, I pursued
a post-graduate Master of Business Administration from RMKEC, Chennai, where my
career direction went through a meaningful change during the second semester. I
was introduced to the world of Finance, with inspiring lectures in Financial Management
from Professor Senthil Gavaskarthat have driven me to steer my career into finance
and investment.   After I completed my
MBA in 2012, I landed my first professional engagement with the Federal Bank
Ltd. I am currently an AssistantManager at its Tiruchirappalli office, having
gone through the ranks starting as an Officer at its Tuticorin branch. Working
in a banking firm was hugely transformational in my career direction as I got a
chance to share views and experiences about finance and investments among
professionals and finance enthusiasts. At this point in my career, I know I
have so much more to learn to succeed in my chosen career in financial and
wealth management which I plan to bring to a higher plan with a Master of
Finance at RMIT, Melbourne, Australia, which is due to commence on 26th
February 2018.

I am now looking
forward to fulfill a redirected career goal to succeed as an Investment Advisor/Consultant,
providing financial management solutions that can enable or helpindividuals and
organizations to achieve their wealth management goals. Over the years after my
MBA, I have witnessed many of my relatives and friends lose millions of rupees
on their businesses, driving me to question why only a few reap unparalleled
success and profits, while most lose their savings on failed initiatives or
settling for a lower ROI than they had expected. While no business is without
risk, I am convinced that sound financial strategies and solutions can help minimize
that risk. It is here where I plan to gain practical wisdom to help investors,
both amateur and veteran, with the proper approaches to secure a more stable
financial future.

Armed with five years
working in a reputed bank and understanding the basic principles of investments,
I have decided to pursue further studies to boost my competence in investment
management. After some due diligence and consultations with my peers, I have
concluded that the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) offers the most
relevant and demanding curriculum that can challenge me to excel in the areas
where I can bring my career to a higher plane. RMIT University is one of the finest institutes
for finance programs, a global university featuring among top 250 universities
in the world. The curriculum focuses more on practical industry learning, which
will give students the skill and experience that the employers look for.Furthermore,
I chose to study in Australia as it enjoys an international reputationfor
excellence in the field of finance. Australian universities emphasize on
practical and career-oriented trainings which gives us the confident to have
possess the skill set demanded by the employers. Also Australian qualifications
are not only recognised by employers around the world butnominating us
desirable candidates for employment globally.

After completing my Master’s in Finance, I plan to take on greater
responsibilities in the wealth management sector. I see myself as providing
business and finance consultancy to start-up companies, managing their
financial investments that would further grow their capital sources to fund
business expansion.  For the next few
years, I plan to work for top organizations like Bajaj Capital and HDFC and
gain rich experience before I apply for my Professional License. My ultimate
goalis to establish an Investment organization in my country, leading a team of
professional and talented financial management consultants with similar drive
to serve the wealth aspirations of people and organizations.

All these plans will need a solid foothold that only a post-graduate
Master’s degree in Finance can provide. I eagerly look forward to gain
valuable inputs from world renowned RMIT professors Dr Monica Tan and Dr Steven
Kates, and possibly to assist them in their future projects and publications.
My abilities as an MBA graduate brim with the hope that I can start my journey
this coming semester.
