Consultant Bio

Nisha Trivedi earned her BA in communication from the University of Pennsylvania and her MBA from the University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business. A deep interest in understanding the consumer inspired her to initially pursue a career in marketing research, and after college, she held positions at Time Inc., Rosetta, and KPMG LLP in New York City. A desire to transition into brand management led Nisha to Ross, where she was an active member of the Marketing Club, organizing mock internship interviews for her peers during her first year and serving as the club’s vice-president of communications during her second year. After graduating with her MBA, Nisha worked for several years in brand management in San Francisco at Big Heart Pet Brands (now part of The J.M. Smucker Company) before joining mbaMission. She most enjoys creating brand positioning and crafting tailored messaging that speaks to consumers’ needs, which is a skill she applies in helping her clients “market” themselves to their dream MBA programs. Nisha also has a longstanding commitment to philanthropy—she has been a volunteer team leader for New York Cares and now sits on the board of directors of The Shanti Project, a San Francisco–based nonprofit that enhances the health, quality of life, and well-being of people with serious illnesses.

P&Q Consultant Reviews

  • Highly Recommend Nisha
    4 weeks ago
    "Nisha was extremely helpful through the entire MBA process- start to finish. All my questions were answered quickly and she took as much time needed to talk through applications. She was a great resource and always supported the decisions I made on applying R1 vs R2 after giving me all the information I could use to make those decisions in an informed manner. Highly recommend Nisha!"

  • Nisha was AMAZING

    "I applied for Round 1 through the 2-school package. From the beginning, I really liked Nisha's honesty and candid feedback. Throughout the process, she constantly provided additional resources for my application. I also started my application process relatively late, but Nisha was very quick and efficient with editing my essays with qualitative feedback. While preparing for my interviews, she provided extra support, since she knew I was very nervous."

  • Nisha was amazing help!

    "I worked with Nisha & MBA Mission through the hourly package - as I had already narrowed down my schools and had an idea of what my application would look like. After spending some time understanding my goals and motivation for an MBA, we started outlining the stories that I wanted to tell in each of my essays. Nisha really helped me get my thoughts together and put them down in an essay in a clear and concise way. Nisha was very responsive even through the critical holiday season (I had applied in round 2 - in December/January) and her insights were extremely helpful. I was waitlisted at one of my top choices, and Nisha was extremely helpful in sending additional updates, which eventually helped ...Read the full review.

  • Huge thanks to Nisha and mbaMission!

    "I cannot say enough good things about Nisha and mbaMission overall. I was not originally planning to use a consulting service, but I am so glad I reached out for help. I got started a little late in the application process, but felt immediately relieved after my first call with Nisha. Once she had an idea of my background and goals, we hit the ground running. I felt like I knew my story but was having a difficult time making it clear and concise on paper. Nisha really took the time to understand the nuances of my experiences and my short term and long term goals. She used this understanding to make thoughtful and tangible recommendations on my essays. Nisha provided valuable insight on the ...Read the full review.
