At the Institute of Technical Education, Amrita completed a Nitec course in finance services and a higher Nitec in accounting, before graduating at the top of her cohort with a perfect GPA of four. At SP, Amrita was also active in the Rotaract Club, a community service-based club, becoming its president in her final year.
