Class of 2018
Specialist in Finance and Economics

HI, I'm Yash.


I’m an international student who has lived in Kenya, India, and the Netherlands. Currently, I’m based in Toronto where I intend to pursue my professional career after graduation.

This year I’m returning to the Rotman Commerce Student Ambassador team for my second term. Aside from this, I also frequently participate in some of the many case competitions hosted by the Rotman Commerce student clubs. Last summer, I had the opportunity to work as an Accounting Intern at one of the world’s largest publicly listed architecture firms.

Outside of school, I also compete at the Division 1 level for swimming and ultimate frisbee. I’m also committed to a few extra curriculars with my college at U of T, St Michael’s College: where I help manage a fitness club, and was a part of the student residence council. I also enjoy volunteering for charitable causes in the city. This year, I’ve had the opportunity to volunteer for a few events hosted by Trek for Teens Toronto and UNICEF.

Professionally, I’d like to pursue a career in corporate strategy. In the long run, it’s my intention to tie in my passion for travel with my career.
