Interviewer: What is your name?

Interviewee: Sunita Gupta

Interviewer: So let’s hear something about you from your side.

SunitaG: Well Sir for starters, on a personal front I am a very cheerful person, who likes to take up new challenges coming her way and not turning my back towards it. I am headstrong when it comes to getting work done in the way I like it but quite flexible when it comes to acceptance of new ideas and suggestions. You will find me to be a very hard worker and can rely on me for any given answer

Interviewer: Please carry us forward with your educational background

SunitaG: I did my schooling from Kendriya Vidyalaya and managed to secure a decent 84% in the secondary examinations and an 80% in the senior secondary examinations. I pursued my graduation in Economics at the City College under The University of Calcutta where I secured a 58%

Interviewer: So tell us about your family background. What does your father do?

SunitaG: I live with my parents, my dad is a Chartered Accountant and into a service while my mom is a homemaker. I have a younger brother who is graduating in Commerce.

Interviewer: Hmm Nice! So, why an MBA? You could have gone in for an MSc in Economics, which is valued more. Don’t you think so?

SunitaG: Well Sir, the reason behind my present choice was that I believed MBA would help me broaden my perspectives about the economy which I guess would have been difficult for an MSc course and where a focus on theoretical ground would have been more likely. An MBA helps me relate the economy and the business as a whole with the concepts that I have learnt in my graduation so far.

Interviewer: Ok! Then give me an example where MBA made you closer to the economy, say, in the last 2 years

SunitaG: Oh sure! I can now relate food inflation to the rise in consumer price index, the monetary tightening of the RBI and the crowding out effect.

Interviewer: Hmm. What is the current inflation rate in India?

SunitaG: Presently it’s hovering around 5% to which a major contributor has been the food inflation which is the key area of concern and hence the hot topic for all the discussions taking place in India.

Interviewer: Your words speak economics for sure!
