“In a global corporate set-up, customer experience and design thinking mostly comes from the West, whereas transactional and commercial expertise is going to come out of China and India. Hence, there is a need to marry both,” says Kumar Bivudh from Gurgaon, when asked about his inspiration to pursue an MBA.
Having 10 years of work experience in digital transformation projects, project management, corporate strategy, M&A, innovation, new product launches, etc., this NIT Jaipur grad decided to undertake the GMAT journey. “GMAT process is introspective in a sense,” says Kumar, “there are three points that every GMAT aspirant should remember. One, know yourself best as to where your strengths lie. Second, ensure that the areas that you’re weak in do not hamper your score that is, pay adequate attention. And third, don’t leave your strength areas on the exam day.”
Kumar scored a 730 on the GMAT. He advises students to take a lot of mock tests because that puts one in the right mindset, especially for aspirants who have been out of touch with studies for too long. Well said, Kumar!
