Founder’s Message

This page was written several years ago by the Founder, Mr Mayank Srivastava, soon after his return from Boston and the inception of our corporate office in Noida. We have been repeatedly told by the readers that the unrefined nature of this piece strikes a chord. Hence, we have made minimal, factual changes to this page and tried to conserve its original, raw nature.
We hope that you will enjoy the read!

Experts’ happened in 2008, soon before starting my MBA and after I had brief stints with the corporate, Indian Army, and an Indian Test Prep company. It’s 2010, my MBA is over, and I am back to India to take Experts’ to the next level. As per our great Professor Mike Allen from Boston University, I am cut for Finance and have given up a rewarding career in the same to pursue Entrepreneurship. The feeling, though, is blissful as I hope that Experts’ continues to impart authentic mentoring to the next generation.

In this section, I wish to tell about myself and my story behind the inception of Experts’, my team, and the company’s vision.

Me And My Story Behind Experts’ Global

Philosophy

It’s more important to have a soldier’s heart than to have his uniform.

Belief

If you take care of controllables, uncontrollables take care of themselves.

Attitude

Well said Mr Murphy, “All that can go wrong will almost always go wrong”…but then…”Every great fighter always has one great fight left in him.”

I had my entire schooling from a small town in the interiors of Uttar Pradesh, India. I wanted to join the National Defence Academy but failed thrice in the Service Selection Board interview. In this pursuit, I wasted one year after my schooling…tasting failure(s) early in my life made me a humble individual and I learnt a basic lesson: always have back-up in life. Then, I pursued electrical engineering from Bharati Vidyapeeth, Pune. During those four years, I did just decently at my studies but grew as a person. Working on the learning of ‘having back-ups’, I had two job offers, perfect GRE score, call from IIM-Lucknow, and- most importantly- selection letter from the Indian Army. I was all Indian rank-1 in the Combined Defense Services final list. I chose to join the Indian Army. However, I had to quit early due to a technical problem and by the time I came out, next year’s CAT forms were gone and I knew that my MBA would now start with three years’ experience under my belt. I decided that I would use my work-experience and get into a global school. I joined an Indian test prep firm- teaching students and writing books for standardized examination and started really loving my job.

It was very satisfying to teach hundreds of students. My students liked me (I may be wrong :)) and I could provide them some genuine guidance. I started taking my classes to a larger audience by posting on PagalGuy. Under the alias ‘maxximus’, I produced one of the most popular Threads, generating million plus views in just a few months. I also started pursuing certain social work and founded Greater India. Simultaneously, I started my GMAT preparation. I took the first official mock test (GMATprep) without any preparation and scored a 720 due to apparent reasons (my success in GRE/CAT and I was a trainer). However, I wanted to score 770-80, the highest I had heard of. The same took me quite long as there was no single study material that was sufficient for GMAT. I kept on solving all the books that came my way, all the free material that I found on the internet, all the tests that I could find from my friends, bookstores, and web. In retrospect, I could have got the same score by solving only 30% of the material I did but the question was “which 30%?”

Hence, after I got over with my applications (with admits from ISB, Booth, Oxford, and BU with 100% scholarship), I decided to fill this gap. I took just the best parts from different resources and combined it with my experiences of a trainer and a test-taker to come up with the Experts’ study material- the best combination for GMAT. I started providing classes for GMAT at my home and between February-July’08, I trained around 40 students for GMAT. My students used to do well and I used to derive immense satisfaction from the same. However, my joining date for Boston University started nearing up and I had to, painfully, tell a ‘no’ to quite a few prospective students. This is when a student told me “if you can’t teach me, just give me your study material and tell me how to use it”. The student gave me a great idea! I then devised Experts’ Guidance Program and continued it alongside my MBA.

Within the first three months of my MBA, when my students started getting admits from great schools, and started writing their testimonials, I decided to continue working on Experts’ even after my MBA. Ever since, my passion became my profession and it has been a blissful state to be in. I never applied for any jobs during my MBA and molded my education to help me in my venture. After graduating From Boston University in May’10, I came back to India to take Experts’ to next level. In August’ 2010, we established the first Corporate Office + Learning Center and re-started Classroom Program.
