  • Degree Programme: Masters in Management
  • Global Nationality: Indian

Education: Bachelors, University of Nottingham, UK; graduated in 2021

Topic(s) studied: Business Administration & Management

Interested in: Real estate, politics, family business

My greatest challenge when I applied to business school was: Making time for GMAT and finding the right way to portray myself through my applications.

About me: I was born and raised in Mumbai, India, and completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Nottingham, where I pursued a BSc (Hons) in Management. At Nottingham, I was actively involved in and led several student societies. I co-founded the Nottingham Indian Diversity Forum and hosted talks with renowned Indian personalities.

At LBS, I have been elected as an academic representative for the Masters in Management programme. I’ll be working closely with the Real Estate and Family Business Clubs.

Alongside my experience at leading real estate firms, like JLL, Savills and Guardians in India, I have worked extensively within the educational and not-for-profit sectors. Currently, I create content on Instagram regarding GMAT tips and international student life.

Post-LBS, I wish to return to my family business of real estate development in India and leverage this rich experience to expand the business. Through real estate, I wish to eventually enter Indian politics and work within the development, infrastructure and housing sectors.

Since arriving at LBS, I have connected with an incredible community of diverse peers who constantly challenge and push me to achieve bigger.

Three topics I can be approached about: Application tips; managing GMAT; Masters in Management programme experience.
