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.

    This is a heartfelt review for Mr. Rishabh, who helped me get into multiple top MBA/MPP (public policy) programs despite the fact that I had higher than average experience and no policy exposure before I applied. I started my apps at the end of August, with most deadlines around the corner. He was patient and very encouraging and positive in all interactions, that helped me navigate the complexity well. After Round 1, I wanted to apply to top policy programs (Ivy league only) and I was not sure of my chances. Mr. Rishabh had a long discussion with me on those and my suitability, and after it, we applied to some of them. I'm headed to Chicago this fall, and it wouldn't have been possible ...

    I came to Rishabh through a reference and I can now see why he is so highly regarded. I had over 8 years of experience when applying, so I was in the more 'senior' category of applicants. I also came from a very technical background in railway signaling. Rishabh's advice stood out not just in terms of admissions or in terms of his knowledge of schools but also in terms of how to best position my candidature, and what things in my profile could most differentiate me. He knew my industry very well, and this helped put together a stronger application. I believe Rishabh does outstanding work and I highly recommend him.

Here's what I found great about working with him: - He does not beat around the bush. He will give you exactly the feedback you need. I was hesitant initially in optimizing my resume, but he kept pushing me to bring out the best of my work. His ethical but firm approach is a big boost to applicants. - Often, when one is low on confidence or belief, he will push ...

  • NUS MBA Full-Time Admit
    1 year ago
    I worked with Rishabh on my application to NUS, Singapore. Focusing my application to only Asian colleges, I was a bit skeptical about my chances of selection. But from the get-go, Rishabh was very sure about the application and at times helped me through my anxiety as well. The process Rishabh follows is extremely professional and he is ready to put in those hours with you. He will make sure that every piece of the application is perfect, even if it takes multiple iterations. He is always accessible and helpful throughout the way. I absolutely loved working with him and have recommended him to multiple others.

    1 year ago
    I was looking for the best MBA admission consultants in India when I happened to find Rishabh right here on P&Q. After reading several great reviews, I contacted him, and I loved the initial review he gave me. Within a day, Rishabh had a solid plan in place to approach my application. In the first call itself, he could identify and tell me the key points that would differentiate me, and guide the discussion on my goals. Long story short, I sailed into my target MBA program, with no worries on structuring my application, managing timelines, or getting the result. He comes highly recommended from my side.

    Working with Rishabh and GyanOne was an absolute game-changer for me. With just two years of work experience under my belt, I never thought I would stand a chance at getting into a top MBA program, let alone receive a scholarship. But with Rishabh’s expert guidance and support, I was able to craft a compelling application that caught the attention of the admissions committee and secured me a spot in the program. Not only did Rishabh and GyanOne provide personalized advice and feedback on my essays and resume, but they also helped me prepare for my interviews and navigate the complex admissions process.

    I've received over $160K in scholarships from two top-20 schools already, and have results pending from 4 top-15 schools. Rishabh has made possible what seemed like only a dream just a few months ago. He was able to achieve all this despite the fact that I had just 1 month, yes one month to work on my apps for multiple schools. His calm demeanor and thoroughly professional approach ensured results for me everywhere I applied. In addition to helping me articulate my goals, Rishabh also provided invaluable advice on how to build a solid and impressive resume. My initial resume was a three-page document that was unorganized and lacked focus, but with his guidance, I was able to transform it into a concise and ...

    Rishabh has a very thorough process of building applications that strikes you the moment you start with him. He is a no-fluff, no-nonsense kind of guy who will not hesitate to give you the facts, and then work very hard with you to achieve even the most challenging of options. When I began, LBS was my top choice and target school, and he told me that with the right planning and hard work, it could definitely be achieved. In the next few weeks, he worked with me in a very thorough and structured way on all of my applications, including the LBS one. On the way, I had a number of questions and doubts about shaping my application and getting the fit with the school ...

    In my second year of applying, I worked with Rishabh. In my first year of applying with a different Indian Consultant, I didn't get in anywhere. Several of my ZS coworkers, some of whom worked with him the same year, told me about him. Later, I looked online and found several good things said about him and his company, including here. Coming from an Indian Male Engineer pool was a tough challenge in addition to the low academic GPA. Rishabh's blunt feedback and honest expectations however made this journey easy. The many brainstorming and strategy sessions I had with him were great, but what I liked most was that he knew exactly how to build applications for the most success. A one-hour meeting with Rishabh is ...

    So guys, I researched a ton of consultants out there, and I found Rishabh to be among just two in India churning out admits to the best European MBAs (INSEAD, LBS, Oxbridge) year on year. I was a bit skeptical at first but then these very reviews that came from verified sources helped me make a decision. One of my friends (now at Oxford) had also recommended Rishabh so I decided to speak to him first. This was about a month before the deadlines for all my choices so you can imagine that I was a bit concerned about the time left. Rishabh put me at ease and chalked out a detailed plan to still meet the deadlines. I was most happy that he didn't ...

    I came across Rishabh through Poets&Quants top consultants directory and he was rated one among the top. I approached GyanOne and had an initial profile review call with Rishabh, post which I decided to work with him. Rishabh has been incredibly helpful in shaping and polishing my application in all aspects from resume and essays to interviews. His guidance all through the process has been invaluable, and I couldn’t have done this on my own. He was very accommodating and was always ready to have a chat or a call for brainstorming if I was stuck somewhere. Getting his time and availability has never been a problem.

    I got a Cambridge MBA admission as a reapplicant with Rishabh's help. Found his services very cost-effective and very targeted for people who want to get into the best MBA course around the world. He helps calm nerves and takes a focused and structured approach to every application that I loved. GyanOne services were worth every penny and were much cheaper for me than using a foreign (non-Indian) consultant. Later I worked with Rishabh on the LBS application (waiting for results) as well and interviewed there too. From no admits last year to multiple admits this year, I have been able to come this far with his help. He is a very patient and mature consultant and someone I advise everyone to work with.

  • Great Advice & Mentorship Leading To A Great Outcome
    2 years ago
    I'm a government officer, so there aren't many consultants who can provide in-depth advice for people like me. Goals, reasons for an MBA, and target schools all look slightly different for me, given my profile. Rishabh understands top business schools and programs exceptionally well, and he helped me refine my goals and objectives for seeking an MBA in multiple programs. Some of the particular aspects he shone out on were the essays, the resume, and advice on the recommendations (again, they were a bit non-traditional for me). What differentiates him from most other consultants is the time and care he invests in each candidate. He is always willing to give you time, which is of paramount importance during the hustle of the application process. I ...

Because he has a plan for all parts of the application, it helped me eliminate the stress of having multiple dynamic things in the process, and focus on building my best applications. - He will motivate you to be ambitious and aim for the highest schools you can get into.

I liked that Rishabh did not push me towards any option, but told me to consider the ones that suited me carefully. He did not ask me to choose lower schools, and asked me to be ambitious to try for the best ones. I liked that. I already had an MBA (I was applying to my second one), was an Indian applicant (I hear it's a tough category to apply from) and had more than 10 years of experience, which made me a bit concerned about the chances. 3 months later, I have an ...

Rishabh was tremendous in helping me with my essays, goals, and applications. The best thing about him was that he knew what to do at every step, and he would challenge me to do better and give my best, not just be happy with 'good enough'. He is also not afraid to give you the right advice even if he feels it won't make you happy. MBA applications are pretty demanding by themselves, and there are so many different elements to look at.

I first worked with Rishabh for the premium profile evaluation he offers, in which he gave me several points on what I could do. To be honest, till then, I had been on the fence on whether I should apply; the conversations with Rishabh helped me decide to apply right then. He did not push me to apply to any school, and I liked the honest approach.

    I began the journey of applying to top MS in Business Analytics programs with Rishabh a bit nervously. My GRE score wasn't the highest, and my last 2 attempts to reach out to him hadn't borne fruit because all his consulting slots were already taken. His team kept telling me that he doesn't take more apps once he reaches capacity, but even as I waited, I could feel the urgency every day. After all, I was a reference.

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!
    3 years 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.

    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 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.

    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 ...

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.

  • Highly Recommended
    4 years ago
    I have worked with Rishabh for multiple applications. He is focussed, thorough and extremely professional. He helped me craft my story which brought to focus softer aspects of my application. We got in touch just 3 weeks before the deadline. But his constant guidance and motivation made sure that we were able to meet the deadline comfortably. I highly recommend his consultation!

  • 5 admits | Scholarship | 620 GMAT - Thank You, Rishabh!
    4 years ago
    This testimonial is long due and well- deserved. I reached out to GyanOne in July 2016 for their AppOne process. I was planning on applying to a few of the top MBA programs in India. Though I was extremely late in starting my applications, GyanOne still agreed to help me out even with only two weeks left in the application cycle. However, I could not go through with my graduate studies in 2016 and postponed my application to the following year. In October 2017 I once again reached out to them for help with my applications and thus began my journey with GyanOne. I was paired with Rishabh sir in the process. One of the things that instantly struck me about their functioning was the individual ...

  • Made My MBA Dream Come True!! An Expert Consultant
    4 years ago
    I spoke to many consultants before deciding who would best be able to help me achieve my long dreamt goal of an MBA. I was going to decide the consultant on the basis of expertise and experience, commitment to the work, speed, ROI, and intellectual connection. After going through at least 10 consultants I decided to with Gyanone especially because of RG. I went through his reviews and spoke to him over a call and was convinced that he more than met all my requirements. Working with him over the first few applications I realized I made the right choice. He was always patient answering my numerous questions. He helped me narrow down my goals and schools when I was going back and forth on ...

  • Unparalleled Market Knowledge, Laser Focused Guidance
    4 years ago
    Being an entrepreneur with huge ambitions and an unorthodox CV, I was looking for the best possible guide for my MBA admissions. I was referred to Rishabh, and given that I got into a top 10 Global MBA school, I am beyond happy with his mentoring and guidance. He knows exactly what each school is looking for, and is ideally placed to help you tailor your application to the specific criteria of each school. Moreover, he will give you a very honest assessment and guidance of which schools you are best suited for -as per your CV and your career goals.

  • Great Experience!!
    4 years ago
    I had worked with Rishabh for my LBS masters application. I had approached him around 3 weeks before the deadline. He was extremely cooperative and efficient in helping me understand the process and highlighting the most relevant sections of my profile. I had also opted for the interview prep service, the mock interview was really comprehensive and useful for me to face the actual interview. I would recommend Gyanone to every masters and MBA aspirant.

  • Specialist For Lawyers Looking For Top MBA: Extremely Result Oriented!
    4 years ago
    GyanOne's reviews across various platforms made me contact them for a free profile evaluation initially. I was looking for a consultant who could understand a lawyers' background and craft out the best possible applications to top MBA programs in the US. What made Rishabh click with me was the network he himself had among lawyers whom he helped crack schools like Kellogg and Ross. Rishabh has been upfront, honest and my guiding light throughout my MBA admissions journey. He knows his job very well and is targeted in his discussions. He brings out the best in you during his detailed and very structured brainstorming sessions. I have no words to thank him for his contribution towards my top MBA admit!

  • Reached My Dream MBA! Best Consultants In India
    4 years ago
    I had spoken to quite a few admissions consultants including Reach Ivy and Paul Bodine before speaking to RG at GyanOne on a reference from one of my friends in Kellogg. The expertise and clarity of thought that he had about my profile, goals, and industry, was totally impressive and pushed me to enroll for their service at once. 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.

  • Consultant & Mentor Par Excellence!
    4 years ago
    I worked with Rishabh while applying to US B-schools for enrolment in 2019. My experience is as follows - Rishabh makes great efforts to understand your profile and consequently helps bring out the aspects that make your candidature unique. 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 ...

  • Truly The Best Representative of Consulting Services
    4 years ago
    Awesome work! I had worked with multiple other consultants in the past, but what GyanOne offered was head and shoulders above the others. Mr. Rishabh helped me chart out the right career options and guided me on building my profile on various dimensions. This led to a great career boost, a clear-cut understanding of what I could do, and what my real potential is. I changed tracks, took the GMAT and did very well at it, and later, with his help, got into a top business school. Mr. Rishabh is a top coach, consultant, and career advisor, and I highly recommend him without hesitation.

  • Great Experience With GyanOne
    4 years ago
    I had a great experience while working on my profile and essays with GyanOne. Rishabh thoroughly reviewed my profile during the brainstorming to find the best possible business school fit for me. He clearly made me understand as to how can I best showcase my strengths while working on my weaknesses. After countless Skype discussions on the application aspects, the end product was an application which really helped me shine as a candidate to the business schools I applied. Rishabh also gave me several valuable tips which helped me ace the interviews. I have gotten into Tepper, Kenan Flagler, and Jones. I cannot thank GyanOne enough.

  • Great Experience
    4 years ago
    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.

  • Great Experience, Highly Satisfied With Results

    I worked with Gyanone as they are really good at understanding the profile of the applicant and helping select the perfect Bschool according to the goals of the applicant. They’re extremely honest in their approach, which is great and shows up in your applications that get submitted to the B-schools. Their work is top-notch and they are very approachable and responsive during the whole process of applications & interviews for the top global B-schools. The whole process is also well planned and does not leave anything to the last minute. All of my interaction was on the phone/skype and properly planned/scheduled. I made it to HEC Paris & ISB with their support.
