Arijit Roy has worked with two of the biggest private banks in India – HDFC and ICICI – and is currently doing his post graduation in Management from Jaipuria, Indore. Born in Hazari bagh (Jharkhand), Arijit studied in St. Xavier’s School till intermediate, before opting to do his BBA from ICFAI University, Hyderabad. He then went back to his hometown Kolkata, working initially for ICICI Bank as Senior Officer, Customer Service Branch Banking (CSBB), and thereafter Deputy Manager, CSBB aat HDFC Bank in Delhi, before pursuing a PG in management.
“What nailed Jaipuria Indore for me was the fantastic infrastructure and the great brand name. I’ve already participated in mega-events like Encore, Big Data, Marketing Wizard and Social Media Conclave held within the college campus. Also, as the IT coordinator, I’ve had the opportunity to conduct various quizzes and competitions. Ofcourse, Encore was special since I was the Head IT coordinator for this event.”
Arijit’s family is located in Kolkata. While his father works with the Bank of India, he has an elder brother who is the HR manager. Like many Bengalis, Arijit has a creative streak, especially when it comes to making sketches.
“One of the big pluses here is that faculty members don’t just help you understand what you are supposed to do, but also educate you on what you are good at.”
Arijit feels that since a majority of the faculty members are from an industry background, they have helped him understand the best practices and align himself accordingly. He is targeting the profile of a manager at Nomura Investment Banking Company on passing out.
