Mr. Infra Investor
After college, I spent three years at an MBB firm in a US office, with a particular focus on projects for investors. I then spent two years at a mid-market PE firm. I am currently working at a portfolio company in the manufacturing space of that firm as a Strategy Manager, focused on the company’s short term COVID response and long term plans.

Post MBA Goal:
Through my work experience, I’ve had an emerging interest in infrastructure investing (transport, energy, etc.) – I have had some exposure to these sectors in my career, but not in a dedicated role. I would like to use the MBA to learn more about this space, but also to further develop my influence and leadership skills to be a successful investor.
