Title: Senior Research Executive

Company: Global

Length of Employment: 3 yrs, 6 mos

Big Life Wins:

Managed to double the revenue (in terms of value of projects won) from the key client assigned to me within a year. I have received 2 promotions in 3 years (ahead of my peers) and have been handling clients independently from a junior level. Have handled multiple multi-country projects which has given me experience working in cross-cultural teams.

Post MBA Goal:

I currently feel restricted to an ‘advisory’ role (as a consultant), and want to move into a marketing/brand management role in CPG which would give me more ownership over a product and its growth strategy and its implementation. I am hoping that an MBA will equip me with the business skills required for such a transition.
