Mr.Kasat got the session underway by taking the students through a brief journey of his life post MBA at SIMSREE. Mr.Kasat then provided an holistic view about the banking sector in the country and dwelled deep into the investment banking domain.He enlisted the various skill-sets needed to pursue a career in investment banking and the means to go about achieving these skills.He emphasized at great length the importance of being industry oriented rather being academically oriented while pursuing 

MBA.The biggest takeaway,from this session was to keep an eye on the future while taking current decisions so as to prevent getting compartmentalized into one particular sector.

The students then took the opportunity to ask Mr.Kasat questions based on the finer nuances of investment banking.The students were inspired by the journey traversed by Mr.Kasat with this the Alumni Committee concluded another successful session of Coffee with Alumni.
