Suvadeep Haldar – PBD Finance

Suvadeep Haldar’s fascination with business began with an introductory grade 8 course in economics. Since then, his studies in business have taken him around the world.

Originally from Kolkata, West Bengal, India, he completed his Bachelor of Commerce Honours at the University of Calcutta before finishing a Master of Commerce through Indira Gandhi National Open University.

Throughout graduate school, Haldar worked for both JP Morgan and, later, HSBC.

His interests in traveling and global affairs sparked the idea of studying abroad. Haldar was impressed by Thompson Rivers University’s fresh approach and beautiful setting.

TRU’s Post-baccalaureate Diploma in Finance was exactly what he was looking for, and he has been happy with his choice.

“It’s the passion and enthusiasm of the faculty and the staff at TRU which inspires you to learn so much. From the bottom of their hearts, they want students to be successful,” he says.

During his two years at TRU, Haldar has been honoured with two awards: the 2015 BK 101 Award, and 2016 TD Insurance Meloche Monnex Scholarship for Career Leadership.

Haldar was recognized not only for his scholastic abilities but also for his dedication to campus and community life. Besides being a member of TRU’s Finance Club, Haldar was also involved with volunteer work, including Pit Stop with the Kamloops United Church and assisting with the Business Speakers Series.

The latter along with the TRU Career Education Mentorship program offered him valuable opportunities to connect with professionals in the business world, including his present employers at CIBC.

Haldar knows that his studies at TRU have prepared him to succeed in his Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) exams and will help him achieve his dream of becoming a successful investment banker. He completed his PBD Finance in April 2016 and is now working for CIBC in Kamloops.

“My advice for students considering TRU is to come, get involved, and while you are here connect with students, faculty, staff and community,” he recommends.
