Shubham graduation story

Shubham's career takes off

12 July 2017

Two years ago Shubham Singh arrived in Canberra to begin his Master of Economic Policy at ANU, and take the first steps on his journey towards a brilliant global career.

An international student from India, Shubham previously completed his Bachelor of Statistics at St Xavier’s College in Mumbai. He graduated with distinction and was then offered the ANU College of Business and Economics International Graduate Scholarship, worth $20,000.

Shubham has used his time at ANU to not only gain a world-class education, but to also develop his networks and enjoy the student experience.

“The best part about studying at ANU was its community. I have made friends for life and have learnt so much from these scholars who came to ANU from all parts of world and from all walks of life.

“Living at Fenner Hall was probably the best decision I could make while deciding between on-campus and off-campus accommodations. The experience of living on-campus helped me grow up in leaps and bounds.

“Getting to live with people who come from different parts of world, getting to cook cuisines that I have never eaten before and getting to hear languages that you have never heard before made Fenner a special experience. It indeed was a melting pot of all cultures and the people that I met in my two years here made my life so much easier.

Shubham’s long-term career goal is to work for the United Nations, but in the meantime he has landed an exciting opportunity with Airbnb in Sydney.

“I interned with the Airbnb management firm Hometime in Sydney, and they offered me a full time position after that. I enjoyed my work there and I cannot wait to start my new life. I will be doing Listing Optimisation and Pricing analysis for Airbnb listings in Sydney.

“However, my passion for development is still as strong as ever. Even though I will not be working with the UN just yet, I will still be open to my future prospects there. My research for my thesis was titled ‘The Importance of Economic Hardships on Social Outcomes’. I am actively involved with development journals and don’t see my passion for global equality dying anytime.”

“I am so grateful to ANU for exposing me to variety of opportunities and moulding me into the kind of man that I am today.”
