Mr. Energy Transition

About Me:

Grew up in an oil and gas family – went into University with the expectation of entering the oil industry. After a 2 year internship term at an energy major and being part of an academic AI renewables research team, I felt the industry needed a major overhaul. I wanted to be a part of that change, so I joined a T2 Strategy firm, focused on ESG.


Undergrad School: Major Canadian School

Undergrad Major: Mechanical Engineering

GPA: 3.95

GMAT: 760

Age: 25,  Ethnicity: Asian or Indian

Extracurriculars: As a son of immigrants, I am passionate about "leveling the playing field" in professional development for new immigrants. As such, I am a career mentor in my alumni network, a career coach at my local immigrants service center, and have co-founded a non-profit that has helped 100+ students break into business networks through coaching and workshops. In my undergrad, I sat on 4 student councils, all focused on professional development.

Work History:

Title: Consultant

Industry: Consulting

Company: Top Firm

Length of Employment: 2 yrs, 6 mos

Title: Engineering

Industry: Power / Energy

Company: Fortune 500

Length of Employment: 2 yrs

Big Life Wins:

At work, I’ve done various projects that align with my narrative – helping energy and utilities clients optimize operations, embrace data and analytics, and think about what the energy transition looks like. I founded an initiative to engage with local clean energy startups and pair them with key clients. I lead my offices recruiting and training.

Post MBA Goal:

I want to be a leader in the energy transition space. Ideally, post-MBA, I’d like to gain experience in the clean energy startup or VC/PE space, with the ultimate end goal of leading the energy transition practice at a major energy or utility company. I think MIT is the ideal school for these goals, as its alumni tend to be very eng/ops focused. Haas would be a great close second as well.


Target School: MIT Sloan

Status: Open

Considering: Chicago Booth, Wharton, Kellogg, Berkeley Haas

  • mbaMission | Odds Assessment: 25%

    Hi, it’s Nisha from mbaMission. I admire your dedication to the energy space, and I think schools will like your combination of corporate and consulting experience. Regarding your post-MBA goals, I should mention that PE/VC firms seek candidates with finance backgrounds (a banking stint at a minimum) so I think a clean energy start-up or midsize is a lot more realistic. You have great academics and community involvement – since Haas and Sloan are so “impact-oriented” you’ll want to fully convey your professional and personal impact in your applications. If you do that, as well as make a strong case for why each program is a strong fit for you and how you will contribute to it, I think you will be a …

    Hi Mr. Energy Transition, Melisa here from Stratus Admissions. You have a power packed profile. Here’s what I like – you have competitive stats, evidence of your commitment to energy professionally with experience both within an energy firm and across firms as a consultant and what sounds like strong evidence of leadership both at work and outside of work. I like that you’ve thought out your short term goals and how they will lead you to a long term aspiration. For MIT, (and maybe Haas) it is more important to highlight that you’ve made an impact in the past and is less important exactly what you want to do post-MBA. For the other schools on your list it will be important to be a bit …
