Nidhi Khetan, Class of 2020
Financial Analyst, DoiT International – Internship
As a child, I grew up listening to dinner-table conversations between my father, uncle and grandfather, discussing strategies to expand our business and overcome financial hurdles along the way. This struck a spark in me to understand how business and finance work.
Learning from renowned professors and interacting with equally ambitious and motivated classmates from different cultural backgrounds has helped me grow holistically.
I am a CFA Charterholder and a chartered accountant (CPA equivalent). With nearly six years of work experience in private equity, accounting and auditing in India, my short-term post-master’s career goal is to work in a private equity/ venture capital firm in the USA. The prospect of working in this industry on an international scale excites me greatly, and that’s why I applied to UT Dallas in the MS in Finance program.
I constantly challenge myself by participating in the numerous competitions the Jindal School hosts. Learning from renowned professors and interacting with equally ambitious and motivated classmates from different cultural backgrounds has helped me grow holistically. I have a strong desire to have a positive impact and help my peers. I serve as the vice president of the Graduate Finance Management Council, a student body organization that focuses on helping students interested in finance successfully navigate through graduate school and career. I am also the venture leader for the Consulting Club. The club takes pro bono consulting assignments from the industry, which is a great way of getting hands-on experience in real-world problems.
The Jindal School has provided me with numerous networking opportunities with industry professionals by hosting career fairs, workshops and networking events on campus. My overall experience at JSOM has been very positive, and I am looking forward to the exciting future!
