father always says that management is all about choosing breadth over depth and
results over perfection. Inspired by my father, I have nursed a castle in the
air since 9th grade: to carve a career in management for myself. I
believe a Master’s from the prestigious Rennes School of Business will help me
put a solid foundation under my professional castle. My journey from being a
wide-eyed school boy to submitting an application to Rennes School of Business
outlines my motivation and preparation for a career in management. I intend to
specialize in International Marketing. I believe it is the brain, heart and
soul of any industry in the globalized world. Today, the boundaries between
countries are swiftly vanishing away, so the understanding of marketing
requires a more holistic and international view of the industry.

I had
my first taste of management when as the house captain in my school I was
involved in organizing different events. Again in college I was a student’s coordinator
for two years in Society of Electronics & Communications Engineers (SECE)
and organized technical and cultural festivals. Whilst being an active member
of the organizing committee of my college, I realized isn’t getting sponsors
for your college event close to marketing? Isn’t organizing your school’s
cultural fest a part of management? Isn’t helping the audience a form of
customer service? Answers were in front of me and that’s when I decided to
pursue my career in International Marketing.

graduating from Galgotias University, I started working at Wipro Limited as a Trainee.
Soon after completion of my training I joined the business side of the company
interacting with clients, providing them customer service and tailor made
solutions. I worked with many international clients from diverse domains to
develop products and processes, R, conceptualizing, design,
documentation, etc. The constant interactions with clients, understanding and
delivering their requirements on time developed a very strong customer
relationship and project management skills. The position is versatile and
reports direct to the Delivery Head. This allowed me a ringside view of the
decision making process in the company and the role of Delivery Head in the
same. The position also taught me to consider all facets of a project from
inception to completion and to tackle problems using different approaches and
team work. During this tenure of mine, I received an extensive amount of
knowledge of B2B industry, providing customized solutions to clients. In
addition, working on several projects concurrently has further honed my time
management and prioritization skills. I also organized various events or
cultural activities at both project and organizational levels. My experience at
Wipro has been a lesson on how a leader planned and achieved world leadership
in its field and became a billion-dollar company; how it generates profits
worldwide using different management techniques in different cultures and how
it motivates its workforce in 54 countries.

engineering degree has enabled me to understand the science behind most of the
things around me. Being good at quantitative and analytical skills helps me see
the principle and logic behind most of the things. I have the ability to
strategize, conceptualize and analyze creatively using out of the box approach.
Being an engineer gives me an ability to adapt with changes in technology. In
today’s modern world with technology being a boon, an engineer who understands
its intricacies can bring out fresh ideas in the field of marketing which has
technology as its backbone.


doubt a Master’s degree in International Marketing will open the door of
opportunity for me in every field. But my interest strongly lies in
Information-Technology / Technology / Telecommunication sector not only because
my previous work experience and academics are into it, but the knowledge which I
would be imbibed with during my studies, I would be implementing in the
mentioned industries. As seen in today’s environment, these industries are the
driving factor for any global economy. So, the knowledge I would get working in
these industries would serve as a bolstered foundation for any industry. After
completion of my studies I want to be a Marketing Manager/Product Manager where
I can handle the marketing/product management activities of the assigned
product(s) of an organization. Climbing up the rungs of the corporate ladder
with a diligent attitude, and after gaining valuable experience, I want to
contribute to a larger extent with key decision making in driving and
accomplishing goals of the organization.

On a
Personal Front, I am always keen to help others and relish the bonus of
improving myself. From the age of 10 I have been playing Football, for me it’s
a relaxing passion along with it I have participated and won various Taekwondo
Tournaments. In the beginning of 2011 I volunteered to work for ‘HelpAge
India’, A Non-Profit Organization in India caring for disadvantaged
elderly senior citizens. As there is a saying, ‘The only way to find yourself
is to lose yourself in the service of others’. It helped me to understand
elderly people’s thought and I got to know more about myself. I also like to
contribute to various schools by giving small lectures to school students and
participate in extra-cultural activities, which help in improving my knowledge,
communications skills and boosts confidence. Graduating from the world-renowned
Master’s program at Rennes school of Business will enable me to realize my
castle in the air.
