Mr. Banker To CPG Leader

About Me:

As a teenager, I wanted to become a cricketer, but I dropped it after pursuing it for a year and a half. My academics took a major hit in the process but I’ve been focused on turning around my career since then (2013). I have an MBA from IMT-G (one of the top 15 schools in India) and want to pursue a second MBA for global exposure & pivot to strategy consulting.

– I’ll have 5 yrs of work experience at matriculation
– My undergrad is from a no-name school; YoY GPA: 5.67, 6.15, 7.10, 7.61 (scale of 10)
– I have two ‘F’ grades in undergrad (Semester 2 & 4)
– First MBA GPA: 6.5 / 10

Post MBA Goal:

Over the long term, I want to become a global leader in the CPG industry and hence, want to gain global exposure (since most of my education and work has been in India).
