Rahul Mehra ’07 majored in economics and earned a certificate in finance at Princeton.
He returned to India after working in a hedge fund in New York. He currently works in his family’s interests in hospitality and financial investments across public and private equities and start-ups.
Rahul has volunteered and given back to Princeton since his return to India, helping coalesce the nascent alumni community; raising the Princeton flag; and organizing President Eisgruber’s visit to India in 2016 — the first visit by a current Princeton president.
He stepped down after a five-year term as the President of the Princeton Club of India. Since 2010, Rahul has headed Princeton’s undergraduate admissions efforts in India by chairing Princeton’s Alumni Schools Committee, a role that he believes is instrumental in making a Princeton education more accessible and affordable to the Indian student, a role for which he was awarded the S. Barksdale Penick '25 award by the Admissions Office. Rahul also serves on the Asia advisory board of his boarding school, as a founding member of the Deerfield Asia Council in Hong Kong, and also represents them in India as their admissions representative.
Rahul lives in Mumbai, India with his wife and son.
