Clayton Pinto MS’18
Graduate Student, Master of Science in Finance
What is your pre-Babson experience?
Before coming to Babson, I attended the University of Mumbai. I previously worked as executive director at Seven Islands Shipping Ltd. in India.
Why did you choose Babson for your graduate education?
Babson is a premier institution that has consistently graduated industry leaders in their respective fields of study. I’ve had the pleasure to interact with top management of funds and companies, many of whom are Babson alumni; they all strongly suggested that Babson would be the best option for me, considering my professional background and future ambitions.
What are your career goals, and how is Babson helping you achieve them?
My career ambition is to take over my family business after my successful completion of this program and to be at the helm of affairs in the organization. The interactions and discussions in class have given me great exposure to a wealth of experience and opinions. The professors have been very helpful and are always approachable whenever the need be. I believe this course is paving the way for me to strengthen my knowledge in the field of finance, which will eventually help me once I’m back in India and completing my company’s impending IPO.
What was your favorite part of the Babson student experience?
The exhaustive discussions held in class and brainstorming various topics of study in the library after are my favorite part of the Babson experience. Those discussions have their own social charm and are a great way to make new friends.
