Author – My book Beyond The MBA Hype, published by HarperCollins, advises MBA applicants on the pitfalls and opportunities of applying to international MBA courses. Within 3 months of getting released, the first print run was sold out. The second print run is currently out.
Entrepreneur – I am the founder of MBA Crystal Ball, an MBA admissions consulting venture that helps Indian applications get into the top international MBA programs. I left my Mergers & Acquisitions career (which I took up after completing my MBA from the University of Cambridge) and bid adieu to the corporate world in 2011 to focus full-time on my entrepreneurial aspirations.
Editor – I serve on the Editorial Board of the Journal of General Management (UK), a leading UK-based academic publication that has a global readership.
Columnist – I wrote a regular column for Firstpost, a mainstream news and views publication owned by Network18. I’ve been featured in other leading publications like CNN IBN Live, The Times of India, The New Indian Express (and an interview), The Hindu and Rediff.
Inventor – Onnicles are innovative online word puzzles that involve identifying celebrity names hidden in regular English sentences. They first got published in the Herald Sun, Australia’s leading newspaper with an estimated daily readership of 1.5 million. If you are in the mood for a creative break, head over to the Onnicles page on Facebook to play online word games.
