Why did you decide to do SBI?

Simply put, I decided to do SBI because I needed to get some basic business knowledge before I venture into my career after college, since prior to SBI I had virtually no formal training on self-presentation through resumes and LinkedIn, nor understanding properly how a firm works.

What are your career plans?

I’m a numbers guy, so I plan on going into the field of actuarial science and becoming an actuary for a firm. Other options include working for an IT company or teaching at a university level.

What’s a “fun fact” about yourself?

I’m perfect pitch, which means I can tell the key of a random musical note played just by hearing it.

What music are you currently listening to?

Stuff that was played on Warped Tour 2014, which I attended during the summer and didn’t regret any of it.

Any SBI study tips/tricks?

Figure out an efficient study strategy QUICK. Different teachers teach differently, and if you can’t study efficiently and adapt to the teaching style, you’ll fall behind.
