Hello, Namaste, Satsriakaal,

My name is Lakshay Kalra, I am an Indian, and I am currently in the Global MBA Strategy and Digital Leadership track.
I got my Bachelor of Technology degree (majored in Electronics and Communication) in 2017, from GGSIPU, Delhi. Immediately after my graduation, I have worked with Accenture and American Express as a Business Analyst. My projects included dashboards and reporting insights, stakeholder management, performance and portfolio analytics catering to markets in EMEA, APAC, Canada and LATAM regions. I have worked in a multi-cultural environment and done projects with the executive management teams.

Personally, I love to travel, make jokes, try and explore new cultures and places and have always been a people’s person, so would love to connect with other potential students.
My aim to multiply the career growth, gain leadership and management skills, acquire international exposure was the reason that I chose to pursue my MBA at ESSEC Business School. The MBA program at ESSEC provides all the business knowledge and required tools to excel in your career. It is a very practical and real-world scenarios-based course. The global MBA is a triple accredited course and regularly comes in the rankings of top business schools for MBA.

From the academic’s perspective, one gets to study subjects like Management Consulting, Strategic Management, Marketing, Negotiations, Big Data etc and you also get the opportunity to do a lot of group work as part of the curriculum. Students can put into practice the newly acquired and previous knowledge and skills either for an internship or the Consulting Capstone Project at the end of the year. The best part about the course is its student experience. With a comparatively smaller and closely knit cohort, you get the best experiences, get to know everyone personally, and be a part of the MBA family. Even with a small cohort you get to live and experience your journey with 13+ nationalities.

I am grateful for having chosen MBA as my program at ESSEC and wish a successful journey to you as well. I will be more than happy to answer your questions about this wonderful program.
