I came in contact with Mayank Srivastava at Experts Global after I scored 720 on my GMAT in my first attempt seeking guidance for my journey ahead from there as I had no idea about which school to apply , which program is best for me , should I retake the GMAT and improve my Quant percentile and other millions of questions like these.At first , I thought that I will get all these answers all by myself and google and I was such a strong believer of this that I made fun of my friends who got paid consultancy seeking help in their MBA application journey last year .Then I realised that you can convince yourself of anything with data on internet , If you start a search to find that Android is better than IOS – you will definitely get convincing data to support the fact and if you start the search to find the opposite you will get equally compelling proof.Same applied for the search relating to schools , programs etc. , its just what you want to believe you can get data or stats to convince yourself then in such a scenario how do you actually get answers??? That is where I got all the help from Shailesh who was my mentor at Experts Global . He has himself been through this journey and helped so many students that he always knows what is best for you and stupid questions are going on in your mind.He helped me shortlist colleges according to my previous work /Gmat score/future ambitions /chances of getting in among various other factors .One of the most important things that he helped me with was to make me understand what are the things in my work journey or for that matter my journey of life till now that I should highlight in my Essays / interviews etc so that my personality is actually communicated to the Addmission committee of the schools and believe me the things I thought were completely irrelevant for my profile became the highlight of my profile when their importance was explained to me by Shailesh.He helped me with mock interviews pointing out my weaknesses , my strengths ,what I am doing wrong ,what I am not doing and should be doing , tiny details which you can never prepare without professional help.He was always prompt in replying to my queries in his own humorous ways which always made me feel stupid to have asked the same but he always encouraged to ask them no matter how many times.Finally , I got into few schools of my choice and decided on joining Questrom School Of Business ,Boston University with approx 80% tuition Scholarship for which I was ready to pay the whole fees and was one of my first choices.The point from where you realize you want to start preparing for GMAT to the point of actually joining a B-School is a beautiful journey full of adventures , excitement , success , failures , late nights , early mornings , restlessness , anxiety , waiting , bad information , good information and I can go on but you definitely need an expert to guide you through it and I found mine in Shailesh and Experts Global Team.Although I am not done with him and I will continue to extract info and advise from him for all my life but his role in my MBA journey cannot be missed.SO , I recommend everyone for his excellent mentoring services.Cheers Guys!

Harvard was founded in 1636 when an amount of 400£ was approved for its establishment by the Great and General Court of Governor and Company of Massachusetts Bay in New England. In 1639, the college was renamed Harvard College in honor of John Harvard, an alumnus of the University of Cambridge, who donated a sum of 779£ and his library comprising of over 400 books. The Graduate School of Business Administration formally opened in 1908 as a Graduate Department of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences. Harvard Business School was the pioneer in graduate business education in the nation.

MISSION STATEMENT


We educate leaders who make a difference in the world.

Core Strengths of the School

The HBS MBA curriculum immerses the students into intense leadership practice, thus, transforming them personally and professionally to take on the real-world business challenges with confidence. Students are trained to get into the crux of the problem by digging deeper into the issues that help them discover new facts and evidences. The innovative Case Method approach puts the students into the shoes of a decision-maker of leading organizations, non-profits and government organizations. Students immerse themselves into the case, perform deep-rooted analysis, probe into the underlying causes and come up with various alternatives to achieve the goals of the organization. The exchange of ideas and brainstorming session with the peers, who belong to diverse industries, enriches the students and results in a mutual learning experience. The Section Experience assigns the students into specific section consisting of ninety students who carry rich experiences, interests and ambitions. The participants of the Section attend classes together, share cases, and exercise their newly acquired management skills to various projects, thus, creating long-lasting relationships and invaluable contacts. The Section Experience fosters a collaborative and mutual learning environment, where students support each other and learn from the knowledge and experiences of their peers.

Uniqueness in MBA Pedagogy

HBS’s philosophy of learning by thinking, doing and reflecting is the foundation of the Field Method. The Field Immersion Experiences for Leadership Development FIELD is a three part course that exposes the students to numerous situations, where they get a chance to hone their leadership skills. The first part is called the Field Foundations, where students are divided into small teams and take part in interactive workshops that help them reflect on their own leadership styles and how others perceive them. This self-awareness and feedback from peers enables remolds their thought process. Students work in teams for global partner organizations where they develop a new product or service concept in the Field 2 (Global Immersion) experience. The Field 3 (Interactive Intelligence) experience challenges the students to apply their knowledge and skills acquired during the first year to a real micro-business, where they are supposed to design and launch their venture independently. This sort of integrated study and practical experience teaches the students to take tough decisions in critical situations in the face of conflicting data, complex politics, and intense time and fiscal pressures. Students build their capacity for analysis, assessment, judgment and action through the intense and enriching Field Method, thus, equipping themselves with the requisite skills demanded for leadership roles.

The Arthur Rock Center for Entrepreneurship supports the students who have entrepreneurial dreams by empowering them with the vital skills and knowledge required to create new ventures. The New Venture Competition is a year-long entrepreneurial journey, where students present their business ideas to the entrepreneurial community and top investors, who give invaluable feedback to the students. The Entrepreneurial Manager TEM course exposes the students to the challenges facing the startups and how entrepreneurs address them. Students get access to tools such as business model design, lean testing, and customer and channel analytics that help them assess the business opportunities. Students put themselves in the shoes of technology entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, real estate developers and investors, and learn to decompose complex business problems, and explore the ways in which entrepreneurs approach the different phases of their company’s life.

The MBA application process can be quite challenging at first. Finding a benchmark and evaluating oneself is hard. When I began my application process, within the set of limitation that I was working under, I wasn’t very confident about my chances. Shailesh and Mayank evaluated my profile thoroughly and were very patient in understanding my constraints and requirements. They helped me structure my thoughts and motivated to apply to the better B-Schools. At every stage, they went above and beyond what was required. I never realised when they ceased to be ‘admission consultants’ and became ‘mentors’. Their mentorship helped me, not just with my applications to universities abroad, but also through the application process to Indian schools.”
