Describe your biggest accomplishment in your career so far: I have built a successful company that has not only given me financial independence, but also taught me new dimensions of life.

What quality best describes the MBA classmates you’ve met so far and why? Global Cohort and exposure. Each one has at least one unique experience which would truly add value to each other in future.

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? I have chosen Mendoza because of their dual degree MBA/MSBA program. It has given me the opportunity to get degree in one of the fields which I truly love and want to actually explore -Business Analytics. Data is the new oil and if I want to achieve success as an entrepreneur, I feel analytics is very important.

What club or activity are you looking most forward to in business school? Business Analytics, Entrepreneurship & Product Marketing

What led you to pursue an MBA at this point in your career?  To achieve global exposure and formal business education to achieve global success

How did you decide if an MBA was worth the investment? At this point of my career, I have gained enough exposure to build business. I needed an MBA to build myself on Global scale. Without an MBA, it may take me longer to go global. Therefore, I realized an MBA is worth the investment to gain long term ROI.

What other MBA programs did you apply to? Tepper, USC Marshall, Foster & Georgetown

How did you determine your fit at various schools? I talked to a lot of current students, especially within my industry. I checked the clubs and all te experiential learning the school offers. I tried to figure out the core values of the school by talking to the students and alumni. I have not used any tool as such though. I checked the employments stats to find out where the school ranks by industry and function. I also checked the companies that recruit from that school.

What was your defining moment and how did it shape who you are? My defining moment was the day I left my comfortable job at a big conglomerate and joined a struggling startup to explore myself and the world. It has given me new dimension of life and helped me in finding my true passion – Entrepreneurship – which I want to pursue for the rest of my life.

What do you plan to do after you graduate? I plan to work as a Product Manager in a global company.

Where do you see yourself in five years? I see myself as a CEO of my own company who is leading a global team and building plans to expand to multiple geographies.
