“I have had very personal relationship with Christ University since 2014-15. Right from my first visit to the impressive campus, I am always overwhelmed by the never ending enthusiasm of the Professors, to inculcate continuous creative thinking in the energetic and restless students who come from diverse upbringing, to achieve excellence in their field of study. I have keenly observed that the institution adopts novel training methodologies to bring out the latent intelligence of the students by regularly bringing in domain experts to interact with them. One of the activities that impresses me is the unique Insurance Club organised by the students to bring the best minds of the Insurance Industry, within India and abroad. I am also impressed by the Faculty who take pride, rightly so, in getting their highly competent students placed for internships and permanent appointment as well, around the globe. The students also derive enormous pride and satisfaction in publishing their research findings on the latest disruptions in the dynamic insurance field. I wish the Professors and the students never ending glory.”

(Journalist, Reuters) B Com Honours 2016

The environment of diverse views and academic fields at CHRIST (Deemed to be University) allowed for interaction, discussions and differences of opinion between people from all sides of the spectrum. As a commerce student, you could be participating in events with students from humanities or law and building friendships as well as excelling in your extracurricular interests. That ability to handle and understand diverse views played an important role when I came into the profession of journalism at the Reuters News Agency. Moreover, the specific curriculum at the School of Commerce, particularly the understanding of finances and basic economics, played an important role in enabling me to get started at Reuters as a business journalist with coverage of company news and macroeconomic indicators before I expanded coverage into other fields later in my career.

I sold my first cupcake in second year of BCom honours and this hobby became a business because my professors pushed me to look at it that way. I was fortunate to be sent around the country presenting my business plan through the Entrepreneurship cell at college. Today, that business plan became a reality and I'm the founder of an all-women bakery called Dream a Dozen. CHRIST gives students every chance to believe that no matter what talent you have, with hard work you can pursue it to be a career opportunity that will change the world.

Carlson Tata FIA, ASA, MSc

Associate Director, Head of Life Actuarial Services, Leadway Assurance Company Limited, Nigeria

I was privileged to belong to the first batch of the MSc Actuarial Science programme at Christ University, Bangalore in June 2013, and this programme was instrumental to my success in completing the actuarial professional exams from the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries, UK. I started my actuarial professional exam journey in April 2014, and completed all the Core Technical (CT) exams during my stay at Christ University. I currently hold the Fellowship qualification of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries.
At Christ University, the MSc Actuarial Science curriculum was designed not just to help students succeed in the Core Technical professional exams, but to also give students knowledge and skills required to thrive in their careers as actuaries. Most of my faculties were professionals in the industry and knew what it takes to qualify as an actuary. 
I am a proud product of Christ University, Bangalore, where I also completed my undergraduate degree (BSc) in Computer Science, Mathematics and Statistics. As an international student, Christ University made me feel at home, and I was privileged to be a beneficiary of its postgraduate Scholarship programme for Distinguished International Christites.
I am indeed grateful for my holistic development at Christ University, its Core Values and motto of Excellence and Service which has kept me MARCHING ON!

Anjani Chowdary, MSc Actuarial Science

Associate Actuary, IFoA Pricing Analyst, Swiss Re Corporate Solutions

Sky is not a limit, there is a world beyond it- that is what I experienced in the 2 years I spent with my CHRIST family. I am truly blessed to be a part of this world-class institution as each day was a new learning experience. I got the opportunity to explore and discover myself.
MSc. Actuarial Science (MSAS) is a unique postgraduate course offered by CHRIST Deemed to be University as its uniqueness is reflected in the curriculum, professors who are industry professionals, companies coming for placements and the vide it creates for students to grow and prosper.
Residing in Jonas Hall, was the cherry on the top. At 7:30 in the morning, it was a pleasure to see the smiling faces of our guards, friends and the teachers. I miss those fresh mornings!
I remember the days as a University Student Council member, it provided me with a platform to represent our small MSAS family and spread awareness of the Actuarial Profession and the course to a wider audience.
The journey from a Student to an Adjunct faculty of MSAS, was like a journey of transformation from a seed to a plant. This would not have been possible without our lovely faculty members. They were more than a family who inspired us and kept us motivated throughout and even after graduating.
Towards the end of my post-graduation, little did I realize that CHRIST paved the way for me to embark upon a new journey of accomplishing the dreams.

I am excited to share how pursuing CA Intermediate along with BCom F&A degree at Christ University has been an incredible experience. Clearing CA Foundation was a big milestone for me, and the integrated courses in BCom have been very useful in preparing for CA Intermediate. This has helped me gain a deeper understanding of the concepts, and has made studying for both programmes a lot more streamlined. Moreover, the timings of the BCom classes being in the morning have been very beneficial as we attend CA coaching classes after the BCom classes. The faculties are incredibly supportive and motivating, providing the right advice at the right time. Pursuing two programmes simultaneously is no easy feat, but their constant support has helped me so much.

“what is there you can’t achieve with patience and preserverance. I am thrilled to share my ongoing journey with Christ University. Christ University is an exceptional institution that provides a conducive learning environment for students to excel academically and personally. The Department of Professional Studies is helping me grow immensely as an individual. Colossal admiration for the faculty, moreover the curriculum is designed in such a way that it is diverse and newfangled, ensuring that students are all systems go for their future careers.  One such programme is Insurance, which provides a deep understanding of insurance policies and their importance in safeguarding individuals and businesses from financial losses. Before coming to Christ, I believed Insurance to be mere a policy and matrix of agents but to my surprise it was much more than that, insurance provides opportunities for hands-on-learning, stimulations, risk-assessing projects and immeasurable. Insurance has professional exams in 3 stages – Licentiate, Associate, and Fellowship. I take pride in divulging that I am the first Licentiate of Christ University Yeshwanthpur Campus and much more to go!”
