The Yale School of Management is considered a goal-oriented program. What is your mission? How will your MBA at Yale SOM help you fulfill this mission? An MBA at SOM makes you a leader who knows both worlds, developed and less developed. My mission is to bridge the gap between these worlds, by helping non-profit associations.

Apart from your classmates, What was the key element of the Yale SOM MBA program or programming that led you to choose this business school and why was it so important to you? Yale’s curriculum teaches most aspects in two ways: for-profit and not-for-profit. Fighting manual cleaning in India and lowering the standard: that’s the part I loved about the Yale program.

What class, club or activity are you most excited about at Yale SOM? Nonprofit Board Members, Tech Club, Social Impact Consulting Clubs

Describe your biggest achievement in your career so far: He was working with Ramon Magsaysay award winner Mr Bezwada Wilson in his campaigns to eradicate manual cleaning and raise funds for the rehabilitation of scavengers. Since the campaign, manual cleaning has decreased significantly in India.

What led you to pursue an MBA at this point and what do you hope to do after graduation? Coming from a technological background, I want to explore the management aspect of the company and use it for my future projects. I want to continue in the tech field after graduation, using my exposure to nonprofit organizations.

What other MBA programs have you applied to? Stern, Tuck, Cornell, Fuqua.

What advice would you give to help potential candidates gain admission to the Yale SOM MBA program? Just be yourself, don’t pretend. And contact the school’s alumni before signing up. This will give you a good knowledge of the culture and beliefs of the school.
