Why did you choose to study at Loughborough University?

The course I undertook at Loughborough (Accounting and Financial Management) was unique to the University at that time, as only 2-3 other universities had similar courses and Loughborough by far was the highest ranked amongst them.

How has Loughborough University inspired you and helped you to progress in your career?

Loughborough is the sporting warhorse amongst European universities. To maintain such legacy takes a lot of effort and time. Such an example not only inspires me but I hope other alums as well to do similarly in their respective careers to achieve heights.

It is a 45 year old family owned business in the domain of Indian Real Estate. The firm undertakes development projects, contracting, consultancy and Liaoning.

What do you enjoy the most about being involved in the alumni group?

The ability to connect with recent and very senior alumni, who revel in the fact that how drastically the university has changed over the years by sharing their experiences with each other. The excitement level in both young and senior alums is alike, which is an experience in itself.

What does the future hold for the India alumni group?

With the continued support being given by the university and with fresh faces bringing in tremendous amount of positive energy, we hope to do meaningful events and keep more people engaged within the alumni group.
