| Business Analyst - Internship
11 May 2015 - 06 Jul 2015 Bangalore
Worked on Backbook Card Upgrade in the Commercial Card division in US Card. Some data was available regarding the past transactions of the clients. Based on this data, we had to identify clients that should be provided an upgrade so as to maximise profit. We performed data clustering on expense data to determine ideal clients for upgrade. The expected NPV (Net Present Value) of proposed upgrade strategy is USD 263,000. At the end of the internship, I was extended a Pre-Placement Offer for full-time employment at the Bangalore office.
