MS-MBA International Finance - Part I

Discuss your plans for graduate study and your career objectives.

The movement towards a global economy and unprecedented explosion of free trade and exchange worldwide has brought about immense opportunities to develop newer tools, instruments and methodologies in the field of financial management. It is this challenging environment to which I intend to contribute by evolving meaningful and optimal solutions to various problems of finance. Thus, my goal is a career in International Finance and/or academic research wherein I could advance analytical approaches to financial management.

To achieve my career goals, I need to learn much more about current developments and techniques in finance, financial markets and financial applications and acquire hands-on experience of financial analysis. A Master's Degree will provide me with theoretical understanding, an in depth idea of practical approaches in aiding managerial decision-making and research skills to enable me to develop an expertise in the core areas of financial strategies and global corporate financial operations. I would like to probe specific problem areas such as the application of quantitative analysis to understanding various issues in global finance and improving decision-making and effect of increase in global communications on international finance decisions. My research interests are Foreign exchange markets, hedging foreign exchange risk, international capital budgeting, corporate financial strategy including mergers and acquisitions.

Strong quantitative skills, familiarity with computer applications and experience gained while working on various school projects have helped me to develop sharp analytical abilities and have given me the confidence to tackle advanced problems on a macro level. In addition, the experience gained while marketing Darwin Bug Traps or while studying the marketing strategy of Tastee Ice-cream and advanced level qualifications in French have developed good interpersonal and communication skills. I look forward to applying these abilities to the immense opportunities available at Hyderabad University (HU).

I have selected the M.A. program of HU because of its outstanding faculty and research facilities, emphasis on a collaborative learning environment, flexibility in curriculum, study abroad opportunity and a global perspective to various key issues. I hope to become a part of this dynamic culture which will give me a leading edge to work effectively in diverse teams and situations.
