In this episode, @Gaurav-Goel shares hit path from the ultra-competitive Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) to ECSP Business School in Paris for his Masters in Management. Learn how this degree differs from an MBA, the opportunities it affords during the gap year and how Gaurav leveraged it to land multiple top internships at large investment banks. Hear about his struggles to get his first break trying to stay in Paris speaking French and how once he broke through he was able to perform at the top of his internship class to get multiple full-time offers. Eventually, accepting an offer at Goldman in M&A in Paris, he stayed there for 7 years before jumping to Astorg Partners, a highly successful private equity fund in Europe. Learn why he wasn’t able to save much when making hundreds of thousands of Euros each year, why he left to found his own start-up after a few years and what’s in store for him next…
