“When I embarked on my career in 2004, I was a engineering graduate fresh from a top university in India. I started out as a software engineer in my first year, but I figured that business – or more specifically, finance – was closer to my heart. I discussed with my then-employer if I could jump into a finance consulting role, but since I didn’t have the relevant educational background, it became too much of a stretch for them to take the leap.
“Nonetheless, I managed to convince them into offering me business consulting in the second year. That was the first game-changer in my career. I started to travel internationally, consulting for several Fortune-500 clients around the world, working on establishing their best practices in Customer Relationship Management. Years went by.
“I started to enjoy global business consulting, living and working in different countries, and learning and growing as I met different people from a variety of backgrounds, cultures and experiences. My dream of getting a business education stayed alive in the background, but I never really took a serious look at it again – until 2011. Back then, when I was on a consulting assignment in Denmark, my dream started to take shape. Together with a friend, I prepared for the GMAT, and – voilà– a year later, we were both enrolled in the Copenhagen full-time MBA class of 2012-13.
