A Day in the Life of an MBA Student

Nikhil George, MBA '22

Nikhil George is a tech sector renaissance man. An aspiring public interest technologist, he joined McKinsey to increase electricity access and create health supply chain strategies in Zambia, led a global youth unemployment initiative in Kenya, and worked in investment advising in Mozambique and Uganda. Now, he’s pursuing a joint MBA and MPA at MIT Sloan and the Harvard Kennedy School. After graduation, it’s on to Google’s New York offices as a product manager. For now, though, he’s busy on campus from about 8:30 a.m. until 6:30 p.m., when he bikes home to Central Square.

Nikhil shares, "I was drawn to MIT’s approach to hands on learning ever since watching my first MIT OpenCourseWare class when I was 16 (Electricity and Magnetism with Professor Walter Lewin). I was really excited about the tech and entrepreneurship path and was looking for a more quantitative business curriculum. MIT Sloan was a huge draw.” See what a typical day for Nikhil looks like in the photo gallery below!
