As I stand on the threshold of completing my Masters in Business Analytics: Operational Research and Risk Analysis at The University of Manchester, I’m filled with a sense of excitement and possibility. The journey that led me here was marked by countless hours of studying, critical analysis, and a deep appreciation for data. But what’s next? Where do I see myself after obtaining this prestigious degree? In this post, I will share my post-Master’s plans and the adventures that lie ahead. 

1. Exploring the UK and Beyond:

Before fully immersing myself in the world of work, I have a deep desire to explore the beauty of the UK and venture into Europe. My travel plans encompass everything from experiencing the seamless connectivity of the Eurorail to the breathtaking landscapes of Switzerland. I believe that the experiences and cultures I’ll encounter during this journey will enrich my perspective and contribute to my growth. 

2. Finding the Perfect Data Analytics Job:

My goal is to leverage the knowledge and skills I’ve gained during my Masters program by diving into the world of data analytics. I’m on the lookout for a company that shares my values and ethos in this field. Data analytics isn’t just a career path for me; it’s a passion, and I want to contribute to a company that recognizes its potential. 

3. Backpacking Through Western Countries with My High School Sweetheart: 

As my Masters journey at The University of Manchester comes to an end, one of the most cherished parts of my post-Masters plans is embarking on a backpacking adventure through the Western countries of Europe, alongside my high school sweetheart. Celebrating our 8th anniversary together, we are eager to create unforgettable memories against the stunning backdrop of Switzerland’s majestic landscapes. Our journey is more than a simple exploration; it’s an opportunity to strengthen our bond as a couple, meet new people, make lifelong friends, and collect stories that will become integral parts of our shared history. Together, we aim to immerse ourselves in the diverse cultures, languages, and landscapes that Western Europe has to offer, all while cherishing the love and connection that have grown over the years.

4. Reconnecting with Family and Friends: 

Amidst all the adventures and career aspirations, I cherish the plan to return home and spend quality time with my family. Meeting my parents, sharing stories, and creating new memories is a heartfelt priority. Additionally, I can’t wait to savour the street food in Mahavir Nagar, a culinary experience that’s not just about flavours but also a taste of nostalgia. And, of course, reuniting with my old college gang, a group of friends whose bonds have withstood the test of time, promises to be a delightful reminder of the good old days. 

5.Long-Term Aspiration: Opening My Own Consultancy:

In the long run, I envision opening my own consultancy firm. This dream is driven by my desire to share my expertise, help businesses harness the power of data, and provide innovative solutions. I aspire to build a consultancy that reflects my values and dedication to the field of business analytics. 


My post-Masters journey is filled with ambition, adventure, and the pursuit of my dreams. It’s a path that combines my professional aspirations with a deep desire to explore, connect with others, and make a positive impact on the world.  

I believe that the skills and knowledge I’ve gained at the University of Manchester will serve as the foundation for a bright future. As I take the first step towards my goals, I’m filled with gratitude for the opportunities that lie ahead.
