My name is Roshan Selladurai, and I am a Junior studying Finance, Marketing, and International Studies at the Kelley School of Business. I am passionate about analyzing data to solve complex business problems. My academic focus in finance and marketing is derived from my keen interest in consumer behavior, specifically on how it moves the capital markets and drives demand for products and services. I hope to accompany my interests in these areas with a deeper understanding of the global economy by obtaining a major in International Studies. I am pursuing a career in management consulting, specifically in growth and strategy consulting with consumer-facing companies. I have previously interned at Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Ameriprise Financial, and as a Research Assistant at the Kelley School. These positions have allowed me to apply classroom learning in a day-to-day manner, providing sound recommendations based on analysis. This summer, I'll be interning with the Nielsen Company as part of the Dr. Pepper Snapple Group team in Dallas, TX.
I am currently involved with a software venture through the IU School of Informatics and Computing. On this start-up, I serve as the sole business analyst, focusing on market research and developing a sustainable strategy. This engagement has greatly enriched my appreciation of entrepreneurship and teamwork by working on an academically diverse team to create a successful start-up. On campus, I am part of the Globalist Society, and have previously been involved in the Capital Investment Club and KSBISG. So far, my favorite experiences at Kelley have been the New York Financial Industry Trip with Professor Steele’s honors class, as well as the academic challenges of I-Core.
