Hometown: Mumbai, India

Fun Fact About Yourself: Apart from being a corporate professional, I am also a professional actor (theatre and short-films).

Describe your biggest accomplishment in your career so far: Founding a short-film forum at my post-graduate school. Short-films emphasizing importance of human values are made every year and viewed by thousands of people across the globe.

Looking back on your experience, what advice would you give to future business school applicants?  Although a good GMAT score, appropriate resume and recommendations are all important, it is most important to attempt the ‘Essay Questions’ in the right spirit. They help you answer a lot of questions that help you get clarity of thought. This is of prime importance in your application and your life.

What led you to choose this program for your full-time MBA? Having worked both in the large corporate and startup environment, I realized that the most important skill to succeed at a job or in a business is having leadership skills and an entrepreneurial mindset. Babson, being the no. 1 entrepreneurship b-school in the world, was hence an automatic choice.

Tell us about your dream job or dream employer at this point in your life? I intend to gain international work experience and learn industry best practices. I want to be a strategy consultant at a large corporate or a management consultancy. 

What would you like your business school peers to say about you after you graduate from this program? Ash came across a truthful and genuine person. He was collaborative in his approach and cared for his teammates. We have found a friend for life!
