A new perspective

"At school I quickly realized that solving complex problems is something that really motivates me. The most interesting part of the program, I found, was the diversity of questions – all of which fell under the same overarching theme: healthcare. One day you may have to puzzle out a physics problem, and the next day it might be a chemistry challenge. Each time you learn to view problems through a new lens. The possibility at Gupta Strategists to work on challenging projects that each need to be approached from a different angle really appeals to me."

Developing as a problem solver

"Strategy consulting in healthcare takes me a step further in my development as a problem solver in a field that significantly impacts everyone. Innovation is taking place at a rapid pace and new insights are constantly being revealed. At the same time, as we continue to age, we all want to remain as healthy as possible. How can we deal with the obstacles that confront us and how can we keep good health affordable? These are questions I rack my brain over at Gupta."
