Career switch from Forensics to Risk Management

From Forensics to Risk Management

Did I make the right choice

By Agamya Sharma, PGDRM July’19-20

Internship: PepsiCo | Placement: PwC Risk Assurance


Prior to pursuing a career in Risk Management, I was studying B.Sc (H) Forensic Sciences at Amity University, Noida (2016-19). With Forensics, I also studied Risk Management simultaneously as this was a part of the curriculum. That is how I slowly began to build an interest in this field. After I completed my graduation, I had to choose a career path. It was a difficult decision for me but after carefully researching and analyzing the pros and cons I finally chose to pursue my career in Risk Management. I definitely think that I made the right choice to opt for PGDRM. In fact, my parents also think the same.


My classmates at GRMI were from diverse educational and cultural backgrounds and that put me in a position to have an enriching group discussion with them at any time of the day. Also, getting to learn from industry experts who are Chief Executive Officers (CEO), Chief Technical Officers (CTO), Chief Financial Officers (CFO), etc of big organizations actually is really a big thing for a person like me and I feel really lucky to get this opportunity. I certainly think that I wouldn’t have got the opportunity to work for big corporates if I hadn’t opted for PGDRM.
