Devi Vallabhaneni’s deep passion for helping Harvard Business School (HBS) candidates started more than 20 years ago, when she was a second-year student at HBS. She conducted information sessions for interested applicants and their families, sharing her personal experiences as a student there and explaining all the MBA program has to offer. After graduating in the late 1990s and moving to San Francisco to work for Gap, Inc., she continued to share her love and respect for HBS by serving on panels as an alumna and speaking about her years in the MBA program.
In the 2000s, she became even more involved with the school’s admissions process by taking on the role of alumni interviewer in Los Angeles, meeting with candidates throughout Southern California. In 2013, she joined the HBS Admissions Board and spent three years interviewing hundreds of applicants in Boston, London, and Paris. During this time, she also helped the school with women’s outreach and completed special projects for the dean of admissions.
Devi has interacted with HBS candidates from all backgrounds, walks of life, cultures, industries, functions, and positions. Because of her personal history with the school, years of collaboration with the admissions committee, and exhaustive experience as an MBA interviewer, she brings a unique level of enthusiasm, intensity, and insight to helping applicants bring out the best of themselves for this important step in the HBS admissions journey.
