The School of Management, SRM Institute of Science and Technology organized an Alumni Talk for II year MBA students on 06 August 2018. Mr. Midhun Joseph, Team Leader, BNP Paribas, Chennai (2013-2015 batch) was the guest speaker. The talk was very effective especially for those students who would be getting ready for placements.
He explained about his company – BNP Paribas, which offers solutions in its three core businesses – corporate and Institutional Banking, Investment Solutions and Retail Banking. The company is also active on certain arenas like debt capital marketing, cash management, corporate finance and institutional equities.
This talk was even more beneficiary to the students who took Finance as their major elective. He also said how being a finance person, it is necessary to know more about the changing markets and the trends in retail and investment bank.
Later he explained how the students should face the interview and few tips were given on the same. His major concern to the students was to learn MS Excel, which is a great tool upon which many company’s works are being done with less time and inputs. He also advised the students to improve their language, as it is very essential to build in self-confidence.
Overall it was an interactive session and also was inspiring to know more on these topics. The talk was truly a useful one and hoping for many more talks like this in the future.
