Namaste amigos and welcome!

My name is Kanishka. I’m 22 years old and an MMD student at ESSEC. I was born in Bangalore, India and did my Bachelor of Commerce (Hons) from the Shri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC), Delhi University. Later, I worked with Nation with Namo (BJP) as their political strategist. During these years, I discovered my passion for marketing while taking courses such as Principles of marketing, e-marketing and also while ideating and implementing campaign strategies for India’s political giant. I also developed the curiosity and passion for luxury, and was attracted to this sector's excellence, charm, elegance and sophistication.

Academics is just a part of who I am and there are so many other parts to me that I enjoy such as dancing, playing the guitar, badminton, reading about politics and Roald Dahl books, and much more. I’m a world record holder in dance and hold 5 titles. Dance has taught me the values of creativity and self-expression. Also, social service is my passion and I believe service to others is the best thing one can do to make oneself happy while also touching lives and making a difference. Furthermore, during my leadership roles at SRCC, I was serving as the President of many clubs. I closely interacted with several stakeholders and these stints have taught me the values of humanism, team spirit, empathy and integrity through which I seek to guide you, the future ESSEC Community!

Choosing to be a part of ESSEC APAC was one of the best decisions I’m ever grateful I made. It has the charm of Europe mixed with the astounding Asian culture and is a haven for knowledge and growth. Being a part of such a rich, vibrant, diverse and inspiring group of students builds in you the will to win, desire to excel and countless other virtues which makes it THE place to be for all pioneers, future leaders and changemakers. Ever tried, ever failed? No matter what, try again, fail again, fail better is one of the core values ESSEC inculcates to its students. It’s not about being perfect at ESSEC but about becoming a better version of yourself every day.

The MMD programme is a golden carpet for making new friends from all over the world, refining your knowledge and connecting with brilliant industry experts and professionals which opens up doors to job opportunities and carving your niche in this competitive world. Self-motivation, time management and curiosity has grabbed a central place in my daily life and ESSEC shapes your thinking to becoming successful leaders in this very competitive business world. We always dream big and achieve bigger with ESSEC.

Don’t hesitate to reach out to me for any doubts, no matter how minuscule they might be. I will be more than happy to help you become a part of the ESSEC community :)
