Consultant Bio

I am the founder of GyanOne Admissions Consulting. Before I started out as an admissions consultant, I worked in top consulting firms including KPMG as a Management Consultant. I have successfully mentored and enabled career growth for more than 2000 folks around the world. I have been a career counselor and admissions consultant for over 12 years now.

My passion is to create compelling stories and help applicants realize their true potential. I have extensive experience working with people from all backgrounds, ranging from entrepreneurs to IAS officers (top Indian public officials), to investment bankers and most of all, typical Indian IT applicants! I have helped them assess the best possible career options, identify ways to reach them, develop their profiles, and reach top MBA programs, including all the Ivy-league ones, successfully – INSEAD, Stanford, Wharton, MIT, Yale, IMD, Tepper, and you name it. My clients range in age from 15 to over 50 years old, and those at the extremes are not exceptions. I deeply understand the industries they come from and have been able to develop specific methodologies not just to help people with typical backgrounds (Finance, Marketing, IT, Operations, and Consulting), but also those with unconventional ones (Merchant Navy professionals, armed forces veterans, doctors, lawyers, and even psychologists) make it to top 10 MBA programs.

I understand that Indian applicants to top MBA programs face much tougher odds, and specialize in helping Indian applicants make it to programs that are well above the potential they themselves initially assume they have. I can and have completely revamped the way you market yourself to the admissions committees, and regularly beat the odds of making it to the crème da la crème of MBA programs. I have a strong network with the admissions committee members of all top schools and have interview Yale, Fuqua, McCombs, Rotman, ISB, and HKUST in the past few months alone.

While I have helped clients get into all of the top 50 MBA programs, my expertise and most intense focus areas lie in providing end-to-end admissions consulting for top 20 US and European MBA programs.

    Rishabh is a great consultant to work with during the stressful time of applying to B-School. He was very calm and understanding throughout the process and enabled me to put my best foot forward. I really liked the systematic approach followed at Gyanone with defined timelines and milestones. Thanks to Rishabh and the Gyanone team I got admitted into the school of my choice. Kudos to Gyanone.

    I got into my dream school with Rishabh's help. He stands out by way of his patience, warmth, and knowledge, and is an excellent consultant to go with. I had unconventional reasons for wanting to go for an MBA. I did not want to change my industry or function, while most people do. Over multiple long discussions, Rishabh helped me arrive at the right way to position myself for success. I highly recommend him and GyanOne.

  • Dream School Admit, Made Possible By Rishabh
    7 months ago
    I made it to my first choice. Deep credit to Rishabh, who has been by my side throughout. Last year’s application period (2020-21) was extremely competitive, and I saw many of my friends working with other consultants or on their own not making it. Rishabh was there as a source of support in every area, providing help and motivation. This is not the first year I was working with Rishabh. I had an admit last year as well, but I wanted to try this year for my dream school. The ways in which Rishabh stood out for me were that he is an expert in what the schools really want, and in how applications can be created authentically to fit those requirements. I come from the ...

  • Will Push You To Go For Your Dreams, And Get You There
    7 months ago
    Will push you to go for your dreams, and get you there. Top 20 admit with $80k+ scholarship! Long story short, I decided to apply to the MBA in Round 3. As an international student, I had the odds stacked against me in Round 3. I also did not have a GMAT test score (couldn’t take the test). I wanted to apply to all top 20 schools, including names such as Darden and Kenan-Flagler. I spoke to more than 4 consultants; all of them without fail told me that I should not even consider, and I should take GMAT and apply next year provided I get a good score. They also asked me to lower my targets, saying that my school selection was too ambitious. When ...

  • Fuqua Admit!
    8 months ago
    I made it to Fuqua with Rishabh's help, though I had a below-average GMAT score. I spoke to a bunch of consultants before working with Rishabh, and most of them weren't willing to 'take the risk' of applying to a school like Fuqua with me. Rishabh helped me prepare stellar apps that leveraged the rest of my profile wonderfully well and then prepared me diligently for interviews. Rishabh believes in you and your profile, and he is not simply using high GMAT scores to help you score an admit. At the time I was applying, there were a bunch of questions on my mind. Every other consultant I spoke to said that I 'needed at least a 720' to even look at Fuqua. Rishabh believed ...

  • Cornell And Rotman Admit. Highly Recommend!
    8 months ago
    Rishabh is possibly the best consultant you can work with on your MBA apps because he truly takes the stress completely off your plate. I had a lot of questions when I began, like understanding what the schools were looking for, making my unconventional (financial audit) experience shine through, and expressing my biggest passions (I am a big pet lover) in the right way. Rishabh answered them perfectly and helped me put in applications despite just a few weeks remaining to the deadline. He was always available for calls, answering questions on emails, or just soothing nerves. He is certainly excellent by all means and he has my full recommendation!

  • There Is Simply No Other Consultant Like Rishabh

    I spoke to a number of consultants before applying, and Rishabh clearly stood out from all others just in terms of that first conversation. To anyone reading this, you should speak to him to know what I am talking about. He is crystal clear about the candidature, path ahead, and next steps to take for every candidate. In that first conversation, I knew that I would go with him and his firm. I don’t want to put in a detailed story on my journey here, because everyone’s journey is different. What is the same, though, is usually the experience with Rishabh. I have several people in my network who personally vouch for him. When I was working with him, what I found most helpful was ...

    I came to GyanOne with a basic idea of what my future aspirations were and their profound knowledge about business schools helped me align the right school with my goals, by understanding my motivations and experiences. Right from the very beginning, GyanOne’s organized and focused methodology, along with personalized attention not only enabled me to optimally prepare for the admission process but also helped me remain confident throughout this sometimes-turbulent process. With a GMAT score of 700 and just a few days left before the R2 deadline, they helped me develop experience-based answers, which vividly highlighted my learnings from each experience. Through brainstorming, attentive listening, patience, and hard work, the team helped me find what made me unique and competitive in a large pool of applicants. In ...

  • Great Consultant, Great Results
    9 months ago
    Deciding to apply to a B-school, I knew that I wanted to work with a great consultant who would get me the results, but needed someone who would be patient with my queries, help me to bounce off ideas and check assumptions, and enable me to build a solid story for MBA admissions. After I did my research (including reading several P&Q reviews), I chose to go with Rishabh Gupta at GyanOne. Initially, I was a bit scared, because I was only applying to one MBA program. I had received several good word-of-mouth reviews for Rishabh, so I was fairly confident that he could help. Rishabh ran the entire process perfectly. The things I found the best were that he defined timelines and milestones, and ensured that ...

    Rishabh helped pave the path to my dream B-school. The journey has been long, and it began when I didn't yet have a GMAT score. Rishabh helped through multiple sessions of guidance, inputs on my application, and discussions on my GMAT score. What stood out for me were two things, i.e. his industry expertise (I come from an IT products background) and this B-school admissions knowledge. He used both perfectly to help me prepare a strong app, and to prepare for the interview very well.

    I will make this review a bit unconventional. Rather than talking about how Rishabh helped me as several other people have done here, I will highlight the areas in which he stands out: - His knowledge of top business schools is impeccable. He knows exactly what they are looking for, and how you can fit the bill. Right from the first session with him, I felt very comfortable. - He will manage projects and deadlines very well. This was a point of some concern for me, because I had only two weeks to work with him on my app, but he came through well ahead of time. - Always available and very responsive to requests. - Excellent on preparing for interviews as well.

    I decided to apply to my dream MBA program this year, but the only problem was that I had just a week to go before the deadline. I liked GyanOne's approach in patiently hearing me out, and understanding my requirements. Despite the little time available, Rishabh took up my app and did a stupendous job on it that got me an admit. He also helped me prepare for the interview and knew the right points for me to focus on. His consulting helped me overcome my perceived weaknesses, and magnify my strengths manifold, and the result has been beyond my expectations.

We spoke around September 2020, and I had a few specific requirements in mind. I was getting married around the December 2020 timeframe, and could not dedicate myself fully to the application. Rishabh had a candid chat with me in explaining the pros and cons of my profile, and kindly agreed to work with me to get my applications done in a timely manner and by November itself. This was my second year applying to MBA programs, after an attempt the previous year (2019) on my own. The best thing ...

    3 weeks before the HEC deadline, I decided to apply. Two weeks before the HEC deadline, I was sitting with Mr. Rishabh, and we began working on my applications. Oh, and did I mention, I also had to retake the GMAT in these two weeks?? From application planning to strategy and executing the entire application, Mr. Rishabh was flawless. I remember having doubts and wondering if we could submit on time when we began, but he helped me tackle every anxiety and question very well. Do try and book his slots early in the application cycle though. They get filled quickly. Approach him a few months before the deadlines.

I had a 690 on my GMAT, which was my major concern, being an Indian applicant to a top US B school. I made it to my target program with a scholarship. And all thanks to the application review and interview preparation provided by Rishabh. I was thorough with my goals, expectations, and stray lining for my target programs, right from the beginning. The school selection call is really an eye-opener and helps you get on with detailed insights and facts about US school admissions and ...

I made it to the Kellogg full-time MBA with his help, and I unhesitatingly recommend him as the best in admissions consulting. He has got me invites and results from four top schools - Tuck, Ross, Fuqua, and Kellogg, and I know that he does this regularly for all his clients. I had worked with Rishabh last year, and though I had a somewhat average score then, Rishabh still helped me get interview calls for both Tuck and Ross.

    There are very few consultants around the world who have insight into how to get you into a top school, despite the constraints you face. After speaking to several international consultants, I decided to work with Rishabh at GyanOne, and I can now say that my decision was fantastic. Earlier this year, I decided to apply to B-school with over 12 years of experience. I knew even then that I was way above the applicant pool for most full-time MBA programs. The first time I spoke to Rishabh, I loved his direct approach and his honesty on what I could achieve and what I could not. He suggested IMD Switzerland as one of my possible options, and I was skeptical. 3 deadlines for IMD were ...

    Rishabh is a magician. Work with him and you will know the difference. It has been a tremendous journey for me over the last two years. In 2018, I had applied to 5 schools on my own, with exactly zero admits, and one waitlist without interview (that converted to a denial later). This year, on the recommendation of a friend, I decided to speak to Rishabh. In the beginning, Rishabh didn't want me to select any schools, and took me first through a detailed process of profile evaluation and understanding myself and my candidature. Impressed with the insights I got, I began working with him on school applications too. He has a very rigorous and structured approach through which he first chooses the right school ...

    Outstanding consulting! To get to a top 25 MBA program, ESADE MBA, with less than 700 on the GMAT is not an easy task, but Rishabh made it easy. I come from a family business background and had made a recent switch that made some parts of my profile and some career decisions a bit questionable. For anyone with a less than perfect profile who is looking to make their dreams come true, you don't need to look beyond Rishabh and GyanOne. Very timely, professional, and of course result oriented.

    If you are applying to a top MBA program, you need Rishabh on your side. While I am sure there are a plethora of consultants out there who can get you into your dream program when you already have that 750 or 760 on your profile, Rishabh can help you there when you are below 700 too! Not many people can really claim that. What he brings to the table is a great understanding of what top schools look for, and how people from different backgrounds can get there. I belong to one of the most common application pools out there (Indian IT Male) and I still made it. If you are looking for the guy who gets the job done, Rishabh is who ...

    Probably the best consultant to help you get into top MBA programs worldwide. I worked with Rishabh for 3 schools, and despite a somewhat average GRE score (320; would be considered a bit low at most top schools), I have 3 interview calls and one admit already. This was despite the fact that I began the process a mere 2 weeks (just 14 days!) before the deadlines for two of the programs. I come from a manufacturing background, and some parts of my profile are very engineering-centric. Rishabh is an expert in helping you to find and hit the right spots in your MBA applications. He is very patient and accommodating. Despite the 2 week timeline, I never felt the pressure once, and yet created ...

    Rishabh is your man to get you into a top MBA program. My huge concern when I came into the process was that I had over 11 years of experience already, and all of it was in semiconductors. I am an engineer by education and function, and I've never been in a business role. Rishabh held multiple brainstorming sessions with me to understand my personality and my dreams. The final application that we created was really something because it was very personal and at the same time very career-focused. I now have not just an admit but also a significant scholarship. To anyone reading this, I recommend Rishabh as a professional, hard-working, knowledgeable consultant who is full of integrity and a pleasure to work and ...

    I undertook Rishabh's services after an office colleague recommended me GyanOne for my B-school application journey. I thoroughly enjoyed his services and would highly recommend him without any hesitations. Rishabh was extremely honest and he not only pointed out my shortcomings but also helped me rectify them. His approach is methodological and helped me tailor my application highlighting my strengths. I particularly enjoyed his mock interview sessions where I learnt a great deal about the school, country, Asian market, upcoming trends, etc. He supported me post my interviews and probably was more excited about my admit than myself!

    Rishabh’s understanding of B-school admissions is par excellence. He knows the various nuances of the process across different schools. His core strength is that he brings out the best version of you in the application. The process is very methodical starting from assessment of career goals and why is there a need to do a management all the way to each step of the application process. He asked me a lot of questions that allowed me to introspect of what I really want to do and also in making the application the best representation of me. His attention to the smallest of details and showing how those details make an overall impact is remarkable. He gives direct feedback which is important to have the real ...

  • Best Consultant I Came Across in India
    1 year ago
    Made it to NUS despite applying at the very fag end of the last deadline, and having a very technical profile. Rishabh knew exactly how to help me tailor my profile for maximum impact. He helped me tailor my resume to make it super impressive. He then helped me hit on the best points for the essays (NUS has 5, so this took some doing), and bring out excellent points from my profile. This meant that my application was solid, and that I had a great interview too. I can unhesitatingly recommend him for top schools and for applicants from technology background. He will bring out the best in you!

    Possibly the best consultant you can hire for MBA applications to the world's best schools. I began my application just two weeks before the deadline. Rishabh was the perfect mentor.

He had an excellent understanding of my industry, and his advice was always accurate and effective. I had a fantastic experience with Rishabh, and would highly recommend him as an expert for Kellogg.

    I reached out to GyanOne in early 2018 to begin the journey of navigating B-school applications. I believe Rishabh was the perfect anchor who helped me throughout the months leading to both applying and receiving B-school admits. He adopts a step-by-step approach to knowing each of his candidates and ensures their profile is showcased in the most holistic way, beyond merely glorifying academic achievements, to any B-school admissions committee, He did a careful analysis of my education and work experience, provided possible B-school options that might help me achieve my future goals and helped me build a truly genuine, yet unique application. Having worked with him twice, I have come to understand he does not have a one-size-fits-all approach, which helps B-school admissions committees accept ...

    I had a good GMAT score but was struggling with my MBA applications. That's when I decided to approach Rishabh sir for my MBA applications and it was probably the best decision of my life as I got admitted to two of the best programs in Canada. Rishabh sir has the ability to highlight the key strengths present in any individual according to qualities valued by the school and this makes a big difference in the overall application process. I was amazed by his work ethic and professionalism. I owe my success to him and his wonderful team.

    Rishabh and his team at GyanOne helped me immensely in achieving my goal of an international MBA. They were very prompt in their response which was very critical as I was pretty close to the deadlines when I approached them. Rishabh followed a very structured process of shortlisting the B-Schools based on my academic and professional background. His inputs helped me pen down essays that were crisp and compelling. Finally, he also helped me prepare for my final interviews. Finally, I received an admit from IE Business School, Madrid (with a Talent Scholarship) and ESADE Barcelona. I decided to pursue my MBA at IE and it was an exhilarating experience indeed. Thank you Rishabh and Gyanone.

And I think that was the best decision possible. I made it to two of the top 15 MBA programs in the USA. Yet to make a choice between the two. Rishabh is certainly one of the best admissions consultants in India at the moment and I totally vouch for him.

I was very close to the application deadlines when I completed my GMAT, but Rishabh helped me put together a well laid out plan to meet each of my deadlines. The best part about working with Rishabh was that he was always willing to accommodate your needs and requests, be it scheduling a phone call at a late hour (as most of us are working professionals, it does get difficult to manage both work and applications), a last-minute review of my essays or helping with some last-minute ...

    I had a delightful experience working with GyanOne, and with Rishabh (my consultant). He helped me identify the right options for early-career Master’s programs in business, and helped me secure an admit to a top-10 program with a 25% scholarship. At every step of the process, he was patient, full of inputs and energy, and had my best interests at heart. At one point, he discouraged me from considering further options, as he believed I would be able to get to my top choice (and only application) itself. That is exactly what happened.
