Aside from your classmates, what was the key part of the MBA curriculum or activities that led you to choose this business school and why was it so important to you? NUS’ focus on experiential learning is what attracted me to The NUS MBA program. I believe that an MBA is more than what we learn in the classroom. These real-world glimpses into corporate life, through ‘Launch Your Transformation’ Bootcamp and MBA Consulting Project create a sandbox-like environment for us to learn and grow.

What quality best describes your MBA classmates and why? Global awareness – My classmates come from the most diverse backgrounds and from across the world. Every day in class, I hear stories and experiences from them, each so unique. The learnings I have from these experiences have been the highlight of my MBA journey so far.

Describe your biggest accomplishment in your career so far: From presenting at a Board meeting at 21 to getting 3 back-to-back promotions, I have had a very fulfilling career so far. However, my biggest achievement was being recognized as the top performer in the country on an international engagement where I traveled to and worked in over 7 countries.

Describe your biggest accomplishment as an MBA student so far? Even before I was matriculated, I was part of the task force responsible for organizing events for the cohort. I organized 3 such events successfully. Today, I am the President of the NUS MBA Consulting Club and have a vision to take the consulting practice at the school to a whole new level.

What has been the biggest surprise in your first months of business school? There is so much to do here, especially in the first semester – classes, students’ council, events, networking, social gatherings, case competitions, just to name a few. There is no way you can do everything, and this instills a feeling of ‘kiasu’ aka FOMO (fear of missing out). Moreover, I have noticed how time flies. I cannot believe that I am already halfway through the first semester. It feels like I just got off the plane yesterday.

What led you to pursue an MBA at this point in your career? After having worked with a top tier consulting firm and with clients across the globe, I felt that an MBA at this juncture will help equip me with the right tools to springboard my career to another level.

What other MBA programs did you apply to? – Melbourne Business School, Indian School of Business.
