Arpit Garg, student blogger at Duke University's Fuqua School of Business

I was born and brought up in Agra, India, the city that houses the Taj Mahal—the symbol of eternal love. My Grandfather was a freedom fighter and fought alongside Mahatma Gandhi.

I graduated from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Guwahati with a degree in computer science in 2008. I started my career with Lehman Brothers. It was not a long stay given I started in 2008, the year it all went up in flames. After a few years working with different bulge brackets, “the startup bug” bit me and I founded my own firm, FinMin. A year later came my own Lehman moment, after which I had to start from scratch. I secured a lead role with J.P. Morgan where I worked just before coming to Fuqua.

I enjoy writing in my free time and have published a number of books which are available on Amazon.

Fuqua Activities

I’m the international chair for the first-year Finance Club Cabinet, a role that allows me to work with students recruiting for finance, help solve their problems, and in turn learn a lot from each of them. I also work as a marketing fellow, contributing to this blog and Fuqua’s social media content.
