Hello, Namaste, Hola,
My name is Nayantara, preferred to be called Nina, and I am a current Global MBA student in the Luxury Brand Management track.
I grew up in New Delhi, India and immigrated to the United States when I was 12 years old. I grew up in an environment rich in traditional music, dance, and art as I come from a lineage of four generations of successful independent women who are world renowned in Indian classical dance. Thus, following a creative path came very naturally to me. From a young age, I always had a natural talent for visual composition, which seamlessly translated to the Graphic Design career I pursued. Before joining the MBA program, I worked for a skincare company in the Los Angeles for almost 4 years. I primarily worked on beauty product packaging and visual merchandising, but also designed e-newsletters, posters, and other marketing collateral. I earned a bachelor’s in science from California Polytechnical State University (San Luis Obispo) and spent 14 years living in beautiful sunny California.
My interest in the luxury beauty world came from my artistic background and passion for self-expression through creativity. Given ESSEC’s globally top-ranked MBA program, moving to Paris was an obvious choice for me.
I would love to answer any of your questions so feel free to drop me an email and I am happy to chat!
