Mohsin Mukhtar, BA'13
Major: International Healthcare and Public Policy
To complement his coursework in biology, economics, and health policy, Mohsin Mukhtar sought out internship and study-abroad opportunities. He studied comparative U.S. and European healthcare economics in Spain and interned with a biotechnology and pharmaceuticals equity research team on Wall Street. He's pictured here in the main conference hall of the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland, where he researched innovation and access to medicines in developing countries with the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development.
Mohsin also was a founder of the Indiana University chapter of GlobeMed, a student-run nonprofit that partners with grassroots NGOs on four continents to facilitate discussion of global health topics. His IMP final project was a thesis about the effects of patent law on pharmaceutical innovation and access to medicines.
Having graduated from IU in 2013, Mohsin now works as an analyst for a New York investment banking firm specializing in the healthcare industry. He says, "I hope to leverage my experience on Wall Street and, thereafter, studies in medical school to emerge as a physician leader working at the vanguard of healthcare innovation."
The Individualized Major Program gives you the freedom to create a multidisciplinary major that addresses issues and explores topics of your own choosing. The ability to select major courses from Indiana University's many schools and departments puts you in charge of your education in ways that conventional majors don't allow. As a student in the IMP you'll have the opportunity, rare in an institution of IU's size, to develop a close working relationship with one or more faculty sponsors who will guide you throughout your academic career. And, when you graduate, you'll have the distinction of having pursued a personalized course of study. Learn more about the IMP.
