“Finance seems to be number game but is the most basic necessity of human life and so for organizations. It is quintessential for survival. I am passionate about imparting this life saving skill to my students. I drive satisfaction from seeing my students getting matured in understanding of money matters with ethics.”

I had always been a meritorious student. I was in merit list of Punjab School Education Board for Matriculation and Senior Secondary, College topper in 7/8 semesters in B.E. (Computer Science & Engineering) from University of Madras, and Merit certificate holder in M.B.A (Finance & Economics) from Punjab Agriculture University, Ludhiana.

I did Fellowship Programme in Management (FPM) from National Institute of Financial Management, Faridabad (under Ministry of Finance, Govt. of India). I was topper of my batch for the course work.

I pursued my doctoral research in Performance and its Determinants of Mutual Funds in India. The papers based on thesis have been published in ABDC ranked and Scopus listed journals.
