A student of BCOM in accounting and finance, Gurcharan joined the 2 year full-time PGDM at Praxis Business School in 2011 after qualifying the CAT.
“The 2 years at Praxis gave me a different exposure and experience in life, ingraining the desire for continual learning”, says Gurcharan. “I was actively involved in the cultural, social and sports activities of the college and developed the ability to multi-task. In addition to getting a thorough grounding in the different functions of business, I learnt how to think in a structured manner. I also developed the skill of writing articles and research papers in the area of finance,” he adds.
Gurcharan did his summer internship at the Valuation Advisory Services at Grant Thornton LLP and was selected by Deloitte as Assistant Manager in GTPC – Financial Transactions in the campus placement program.
After 4.5 years with Deloitte, Gurcharan moved to Grant Thornton India LLP in their Valuation Advisory services, and has recently joined PwC.
“It has been an enriching journey all through, experiencing the different facets of corporate culture, and learning to face and overcome challenges.
I owe a large part of my corporate success to Praxis. We had a wonderful faculty team and a great peer group – and we were taught us to respect each other’s opinion, think in a rational and logical way, and find solutions that were in the best interest of the organization and the client,” says the proud alumnus of Praxis Business School.
