Thank you in advance. Really appreciate your evaluation of the below.

Indian, 26 Male.

Graduation : BITS Pilani Goa ( Among top 10 colleges in India)

Dual Degree: M.Sc. (Hons) Economics + B.E (Hons.) Electrical and Electronics Engineering

CGPA: 6.64

GMAT 740

FRM charter holder + CFA Level 2 Candidate. Cleared all these exams in first attempt.

Work Experience:

Senior Analyst at Goldman Sachs Bangalore. Joined out of college. Would be completing slightly more than 4 years at the time of MBA applications in 2018 and more than 5 years if I join the MBA class of 2019.

For close to 2.5 years was part of the trade risk management team in Operations where my core job was to ensure that pricing risk was appropriately captured by identifying bespoke trade features. The role required me to develop product and process expertise.

Have been ranked ‘Outstanding’ in all my 3 annual employee reviews which in Goldman Sachs speak is the highest employee rating. This enabled me to move products during my stint in operations where in for first half I covered Bank Loans and in second, I covered Structured Equity Derivates.

Strong performance also helped me move divisions last year. I managed a shift from an Operations role to the role in revenue side in the asset management arm of Goldman Sachs (GSAM). Have been in this role for past 9 months.


In my current role I cover GSAM’s offshore money market funds portfolio which has assets close to $100 bn. I work closely with trading desk through my role which involves conducting portfolio analysis- current positioning, performance attribution, market trends along with business development which includes creating and maintaining marketing materials assisting in ad-hoc client and sales queries.


Leadership and Extra Curriculars:

Selected to be one of the 7 official bloggers for this year’s Jaipur Literature Festival -one of the largest literature festivals in the world-through an essay competition. During the festival blogged about various sessions cantered around literature , economics and politics. These blogs were used by various national news papers for their press releases of the festival.

At work:

·Led a team of 4 ( in 2017) and won a grant of $20k for for the NGO Digital Empowerment Foundation for their project internet in a box which aims to provide internet connectivity to the internet dark villages in India. This was part of the Goldman Sachs India Impact Fund wherein analysts and associates of Goldman Sachs India, had to pitch for an NGO of their choice in a shark tank like format to the Executive committee of Goldman Sachs. Once the grant was secured it required me and my team to monitor the progress of the project and act as a link between the NGO and the CSR committee of Goldman Sachs India. Through this project close to 50,000 people in Tekulodu village of Andhra Pradesh will have access to digital services through this project.

Member of the Goldman Sachs India disability forum and India religion and culture forum. Through these forums we organize various events to raise awareness about social issues at work. For example, as a part of the disability forum, I was in the team that collaborated with the experiential learning and drama based training company to prepare a skit that aimed to sensitize Goldman Sachs employees towards needs of persons with disabilities and how best to accommodate them in the workforce.

Secretary -Goldman Sachs Toastmasters Club. As a secretary my role was to carry out the administrative functions of the official Toastmasters club of Goldman Sachs India and help other members in preparation of their speeches. I have myself completed Toastmaster’s Competent Communicator manual (set of 10 speeches) and intend to continue and have also won a couple of speech contests organized by different Toastmasters clubs in Bangalore.

During College:

Was President of Centre for Entrepreneurial Leadership BITS Goa- Led a team of 35 students and organized events like conferences open houses, startup weekends etc. to promote entrepreneurship on campus.

Was curator of the national level conference titled ‘Agora’ that focused on the relevance of social entrepreneurship in India's growth story. The conference was covered by ET-NOW on their weekly show 'Starting Up'

Was selected to be a part of Jagriti Yatra-a 15-day train journey that that took 450 young participants across India to different well established social enterprises to better understand their business models.


·Member of the team which was a Regional Finalist at The Hult Prize in Dubai, one of the largest social case study competitions. The problem statement given to us was – ‘food hunger in urban slums’. Secured 5th rank out of the 57 participating teams.

Secured 5th rank out of the 57 participating teams. All of this is very impressive-- I think you have a good profile on which to build. So then the next key questions become-- WHY MBA/Why Now/Why this school. Our process allows you to do a deep dive into these areas and put together compelling applications. I'd love to help you break into the M7 zone-- to learn more how I or anyone at Stratus can help you do that-- and now is a great time to look-- as the best counselors still have availability for R1 2018 at this point-- reach out to us for a free consult at this link: https://stratusadmissionscounseling.com ... b-visitor/
