Student Tanmaya Sharma travelled from India to study a BA (Hons) in Enterprise and Entrepreneurship at Coventry University. He was so happy with the innovative facilities that he came back to study an MSc in Investment Banking. This is what Tanmay had to say of his Coventry experience:
“My undergraduate course at Coventry was the number one in the entire UK and taught me the importance of due diligence and compliance, which back home it is not taken as seriously. Modules like Personal Entrepreneur and Development gave me hands on practical experience I enjoyed going out hustling and selling things in the city.
After my BA (Hons) degree I pursued a steady career in financial analytics at multinational giant, American Express in Northern India. For me, Coventry University was the best place to give me that chance to stand out above the rest. The goal is to open up my own hedge fund. Staying in Coventry means I would have access to the Bloomberg terminals, and I can maybe look at employing some students. I’ve had call-backs from employers just because I have access to Bloomberg and Thompson Reuters Icon software. Coventry really gave me a multicultural view of life. This helped me going back to India and taking calls from people in the USA, Bahrain, and Australia because it has helped me build client relationships.
I have also published a book which is called ‘The Making of a Recession’, in which I am writing in detail how and why we’re going to have the next financial crisis.
Coventry University is attracting the best of the best from India and so those entrepreneurial people go ahead and make something of their life and some bring the skills home again. In my opinion Coventry is educating the future leaders of India and I personally believe Coventry University is one of the best.”
