"At college I came in contact with strategy consulting and found in it exactly what I was missing in physics. I had really wanted more variety, faster results and more teamwork, yet at the same time I also wanted to continue solving challenging, complex puzzles. I found this fairly specific set of conditions at Gupta. Every day I am able to dig my teeth into another problem and work in a team to come up with a solution."

In the driver’s seat

"What really appealed to me about Gupta Strategists was the ambitious culture combined with the informal team atmosphere. This setting makes it possible to really get to know everyone and to take advantage of and learn from other people’s strengths. In addition, thanks to the great responsibility that you take on you can immediately contribute to socially relevant problems. Right from day one you are in the driver’s seat."
