Meet the Indian School of Business’ MBA Class of 2017

Prayatn Mahajan

Indian School of Business

Describe yourself in 15 words or less: I am driven and focused on things I choose to do.

Hometown: New Delhi

Fun Fact about Yourself: I have a crazy laughing streak.

Undergraduate School and Major:  Shri Ram College of Commerce (BCOM (H))

Employers and Job Titles since Graduation: Business Analyst and Executive Assistant to the Vice Chairman– SUN Group

Describe your biggest accomplishment in your career so far: My biggest accomplishment has been managing the group businesses globally along with my chairman. I have managed to gain valuable insights in areas of gold, defense and renewable energy as sectors for growth in India. I have also in the process developed a strong network of people and have learned valuable people and negotiation skills at a fairly young age.

Looking back on your experience, what advice would you give to future business school applicants? Be fully informed about what you are getting into and you should totally imbibe the institution. It is also important to be yourself without being affected by what others do (i.e. avoid the fear of missing out). One should also know what the school can give to you and what you can give back to the school. Try to gain clarity on yourself through your essays.

What led you to choose this program for your full-time MBA? The brand reputation and the quality of faculty, combined with the amazing infrastructure for an amazing all round development. The thought of an action-packed one year also attracted me a lot.

Tell us about your dream job or dream employer at this point in your life? Being in the associate programs of major investment banks are my aspiration at this point of time as it helps my zeal to be in the mix of a fast paced environment and pursue my dream of being India’s sought-after banker.

What would you like your business school peers to say about you after you graduate from this program? It would probably be, “Look where he is, man!” (Obviously in a good way).
