Why Avishek chose Tippie: I wanted to be a part of a Top Ranked MBA program. In addition to being a top ranked program, the Tippie MBA has a small but highly diverse class and offers a niche specialization in Process & Operations Excellence. Placement statistics and a good ROI are factors that are really important for an international student.

Most importantly, the international value proposition of the Tippie MBA definitely promises that I would be a sought after candidate for employers, irrespective of geographical locations.
Something Unique About Avishek: I am a keen foodie, a footloose traveler and an ardent fan of jazz and blues. I have motorcycled through most of the Konkan Coastline in India. When I am not munching “Lechon” in Manila or relishing “Quesadillas” in Mexico, I am busy exploring the street food scene in the narrow alleys of Old Delhi. I enjoy cooking and reading (poetry and modern history being my favorites). I am an active Quizzer and I have represented my high school and college at several National Level quiz competitions.
