See What People Are Saying

Shruti Mam has been a perfect mentor in my MBA application process. The various brainstorming sessions with her helped me in identifying my strengths and learnings from my past experiences. The personal interest she takes in getting to know once background helps in portraying once true self in the essays. She is always a phone call away to help us in case of any difficulties and goes the extra mile to answer our questions. During the interview preparations, she guides you to prepare for the worst scenario that can unfold on that day and how to handle such situations. Her guidance and mentorship helped me in getting an admit in the IIM A PGPX course and would highly recommend Shruti Mam to anyone who needs help in their MBA applications.
