Meet Dartmouth Tuck’s MBA Class Of 2020

Shailendra Khemka

Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College

A computer scientist with a strong love for finance.”

Hometown: Assam, India

Fun Fact About Yourself: I have lived and worked in four different countries: Singapore, London, India, and the USA. Also, I am attending business school with my twin brother, Sudhanshu.

Undergraduate School and Major: Computer Science, National University of Singapore

Only student to be awarded a Gold Medal for Computing, university-wide recognition, for exceptional performance in Computer Science.

Most Recent Employer and Job Title: Senior Product Manager, MatchMove Pay – a venture backed financial technology company

Describe your biggest accomplishment in your career so far: To promote financial inclusion of the unbanked, I launched a nationwide cash digitization strategy in Singapore in collaboration with Singapore Post, capitalizing on a multi-million dollar market opportunity for my company.

What quality best describes the MBA classmates you’ve met so far and why? Collaborative: Be it interview preparation or resume polishing, my classmates have unselfishly shared the best tips I have ever come across – the team spirit pervades Tuck.

Aside from your classmates, what was the key factor that led you to choose this program for your full-time MBA and why was it so important to you? A key value add of the MBA for me was the network. Tuck’s small class size (about 285) really enables Tuckies to know each other at a personal level, laying the foundation for lifelong friendships.

What club or activity are you looking most forward to in business school? The Tuck Social Venture Fund – during the later stages of my career, I want to get involved in impact investing. Tuck is among the very few MBA programs that have a social venture fund.

What led you to pursue an MBA at this point in your career? Having led 20+ member engineering teams at Deutsche Bank and launched multi-million dollar financial products at a fintech startup, I developed expertise in technology and product management. However, I also realized that it is imperative to get the financial and fundraising part right to ensure the success of any technological venture. Through the MBA, I want to develop a strength in finance.

How did you decide if an MBA was worth the investment? I wanted to develop a global network, strong financial skills, and leadership abilities. An MBA was worth the investment for me because it enabled me to develop all of the abovementioned skills.

What other MBA programs did you apply to? Yale, Michigan and Wharton

How did you determine your fit at various schools? I was looking for a school with a small class size that would enable me to develop a strong but global network. Moreover, a robust finance curriculum and opportunities to develop leadership qualities were important to me. Tuck provided me all of the above. To evaluate schools and research their culture, I spoke to current students and attended information sessions.

What was your defining moment and how did it shape who you are? The defining moment in my life was when my parents sent me to a boarding school at the young age of six. Studying in a boarding school from ages six to eighteen, I deeply inculcated the qualities of responsibility, independence, and teamwork – attributes required to thrive in such schools where all of your work is done in collaboration with your fellow peers as your parents are far away.

What do you plan to do after you graduate? Investment banking

Where do you see yourself in five years? Leveraging my technical skills and MBA, I hope to be advising technology companies about their strategic business direction.
