Connections that lead to employment STUDENT STORY Right time, right place Madiha Ahmad Indian Associate Consultant, KPMG Masters in International Business Class of 2017 What were your aims in doing a masters? Getting exposure to a professional international environment. Hult—with its mix of nationalities and top faculty—was the best place to help me achieve my aims. How did you connect with KPMG? Two months into the program, Hult provided us with an opportunity to participate in a case study competition organized by KPMG. For me, that turned out to be the key to my future. Since graduation, I have been working with KPMG as a consultant. In my case, Hult has been as important as Google Maps in getting me to my destination.
