“I always believe in continuous improvement,” says Subrat Gupta, when asked about his motivation to pursue an MBA. He continues, “MBA allows you to come into contact with people from different backgrounds and different perspectives. This helps you become a better person!”
Despite having an illustrious engineering career spanning 10 years, Subrat decided to take a leap of faith and made up his mind to switch careers. As he wanted to work in the field of strategic consulting, he went about methodically preparing for the GMAT. He took the exam and applied to B-schools in Singapore. His confidence and persistence paid off. He made it to NUS, one of the top B-schools in Asia and graduated in 2018 with an NUS MBA Excellence Scholarship. He is currently interning at KPMG Singapore.
He has some advice for GMAT applicants: try to plan things proactively. Don’t leave things for the last minute, especially while preparing your applications. Prepare well and keep yourself motivated. Message delivered, bro!
