Karishma Rajan

I have 5 years of work experience auditing Fortune 500 companies in the US. For the last three years, from 2019-2021, I was part of the highest performing teams in the US Insurance financial services sector. I was also tasked with driving innovation and automation on the large US audit clients. I have spearheaded the presentation and marketing of the innovative solutions developed by me to the executives on audit engagement teams.

Through these experiences I developed time management skills and the ability to prioritize my work productively. Throughout my education and work experience I have had the opportunity to hone my communication and leadership skills by interacting with students, peers, colleagues and clients. Some of my skills include finance, accounting, analytical thinking and problem solving with an ability to multi-task efficiently in fast-paced environments while maintaining high levels of accuracy and attention to detail through the application of Microsoft Excel principals and teamwork.

8 year old me, on a Friday afternoon, learning how to balance books at my parents’ jobs knew I would become a part of the finance field.

I have since developed a wide variety of skills from my previous finance roles and from courses I have taken as a MSc in Finance at Hult Int Business School. Some of the courses I have taken include: Data Extraction & Visualization, Python coding, R coding, data science, Financial Management, Financial Reporting, Financial Planning, amongst others.

I am currently a Financial Analyst at Bosch North America. As a Financial Analyst, I run 3 DSR and Leadership view reports on a daily basis, I create processes from scratch for specific sales areas such as P&L reporting, MBR month close optimization, amongst others which cut down processing times on average by 50%. In my time in this role, I have learned plenty of Analysis for Microsoft Excel tricks, I have developed a deep understanding of PowerBI, and have utilized Alteryx to come up with processes from scratch.

Education with a purpose

At Hult, we believe that education is about so much more than a degree. It’s about transformation. Students want skills that will transform their lives. Employers want graduates that will transform their businesses. Society wants businesses that will transform the world. Like all change, it starts with action.

By focusing on what our students can do in the real world, rather than just the theory they study in classrooms, we prioritize those skills and mindsets that are most needed to bring about change—in the careers of the individual, the businesses they work in, and the society we all live in. This belief in the power of learning by doing goes beyond a philosophy; it is the guiding force behind every program we provide, every course we create, every class we run. It’s what makes Hult the business school for those made to do.

Those made to do come to Hult from all over the world in order to:


For Those Made to Do

Do challenges

Creative problem-solving and collaboration are essential to personal and professional success. Our students continually practice what they’ll be doing in the workplace so they build a relevant skillset that enables them to take on any challenge they may face after graduation.

Do global

Immersed in a melting pot of 150 nationalities across a global campus network, Hult graduates don’t just thrive in an international environment, they know how to leverage it to get results. Our students build a global network by collaborating with classmates from around the world—potential partners, investors, and contacts are everywhere.

Do growth

Change never stops and neither should learning. Whether our graduates’ goals change, or their industry does, our lifelong learning options enable them to come back to Hult every year for the rest of their career in order to stay up to date and relevant—always.
