THE HULT STUDENT Kavita Naik American/Indian Class of 2018 London and New York campuses Language spoken: English What motivated you to pursue an MBA? Prior to Hult, I worked as a Senior Relationship Manager at Bank of America Merrill Lynch. I had reached a point in my life where I was ready for the next step. For me, that was two things: discovering what I was passionate about career-wise and living out my dream to move to New York. In an intensive one-year program, the Hult MBA offered the opportunity to do both. Biggest learning? Participating in the Hult Prize was a great lesson in itself. It opened my mind to an entrepreneurial way of thinking—having been involved in non-profits before, the social element really excited me. I never knew how much time and effort went into creating a successful business, and the Hult Prize gave me a glimpse into that process. The presentation side of the challenge increased my overall learning and refreshed a sense of confidence and energy in the way I communicate. “It’s easy to lose clarity about which direction you’re going in your career, but Hult has allowed me to streamline my thinking and identify a strategic pathway to reach my goals.” How has the program helped you to achieve your aims? By being given the choice of multiple courses at Hult, I made two important realizations—that it was finance I was most interested in, and that I wanted to make the transition from private to corporate banking. It’s easy to lose clarity about which direction you’re going in your career, but Hult has allowed me to streamline my thinking and identify a strategic pathway to reach my goals. Hult is... an enriching, life-changing experience that I will forever be grateful for. I made new lifelong friends, earned my MBA, and I now have more clarity about my future both personally and professionally. 22
