Write an essay where you tell us about what drives you in your pursuit of your graduate degree.
United in our mission to make the world safer for women, we created what I believe is a remarkable product, but ultimately I found that I could not launch DAZL sustainably at this point in my career. I continue to seek new ways to build on the spirit behind DAZL, and I am eager to improve my skills as an entrepreneur and organizational leader through the MIT Sloan MBA.
My post-MBA career aspiration is to launch a technology-enabled venture that provides a support platform across India and South East Asia to family caregivers of patients suffering from neurological & mental diseases. This platform would protect the identities of participants, which is crucial for this region because of the stigma attached to mental health issues, facilitate knowledge-sharing, and offer peer support. I will base the company in India, where there is a potential market size of over 110 million patients.
I am inspired by Sloan’s action-based learning methodology rooted in the ‘think-act-reflect’ model. I will learn how social innovations can reach millions of users through courses such as ‘Effective Business Models in Frontier Markets’ and ‘Innovating for Impact.’
Through MIT Sloan’s immersive management program, I hope to deepen my management and leadership abilities, forging life-changing personal and professional connections within MIT’s innovative and transformative ecosystem.
