This is my Credit Motivation

Hi everyone,

I am an Indian who is pursuing an amazing MBA at IMD Lausanne, this was a miracle MBA for me as it happened out of the blue :) I would love your support in making this MBA a huge success.

I would like to take a loan to fund my living expenses during my IMD MBA. I received a scholarship from IMD for CHF 10k. Apart from this, I have paid my MBA fees and living expenses so far using my own savings and with help from my mother. However , given the present situation and the huge depreciation of the Indian currency, I prefer to avail of a loan to fund my rent and other living expenses for the remaining months. I wish to personally assure you that I will make all efforts to pay off the loan as early as possible, even earlier than the 2.5 years indicated below.

Plans after study

I have a strong corporate finance and analytical background as a Chartered accountant with an MSc in Finance and a CFA level 3 pass. I have worked in Corporate development and M&A with Accenture and Deloitte in India, London and on multiple European projects for about 9 years. Post IMD, I aim to continue working in corporate development in Europe.

I am passionate about M&A and corporate development and enjoy executing all stages of a deal life cycle and dealing with multiple stakeholders and well as working with cross cultural and multi-functional teams. My plan B is to work in a corporate strategy role in Europe.

My international experience of studying and working in London for 2 years has instilled in me a passion for travel and appreciation of various cultures which strengthens my determination to stay back in Europe post my MBA.
