Richa Swami

Class of 2025

I began my career in the field of Investment Banking at Goldman Sachs, where I played a significant role in assisting companies with their growth strategies, particularly through mergers and acquisitions. My primary focus was on Industrial firms within the EMEA region, and I greatly valued the steep learning curve that Goldman Sachs offered.

However, while I enjoyed my work in finance, I also had a strong desire to expand my horizons and explore the world of Consulting. This aspiration led me to roles at an Indian boutique consulting firm and later at a global Tech Consulting company. These experiences allowed me to delve into strategy consulting and tech consulting, working across diverse sectors such as logistics, consumer goods, and financial services. My ultimate goal was to contribute my expertise to help Fortune 500 companies tackle their most complex business challenges, which ultimately led me to Ross School of Business. Here, I am actively acquiring the skills necessary to achieve that goal.

In my first month at Ross, I have had the privilege of experiencing more than I could have imagined. From immersing myself in American Football to exploring a wide array of global cuisines, enjoying outdoor adventures, and taking advantage of numerous learning opportunities, there truly is something for everyone here. Located in the charming college town of Ann Arbor, Ross has quickly become my new home.
