Helping hand for students

Helping hand for students


The corporate world is changing fast and people are always on the move. In this competitive day and age, it's imperative for someone to stay ahead. Formal education that keeps in mind these changing trends and focuses on giving students the updated information all the time is perhaps the most coveted thing today.

General Education, armed with a team of MBA graduates from top global B-schools such as Harvard, INSEAD, ISB and HEC, Paris, is committed to providing its students the edge to compete against students from all over the globe.

General Education provides assistance in essay editing and interview preparation. It also helps B-school aspirants through a set of comprehensive and proprietary services, which include, but not limited to counselling applicants to identify an optimal set of prospective schools to apply to, based on his/her profile and future aspirations.

Right advice

Essay writing is one of the key facets while applying to any B-school. Applicants are expected to clearly describe their intentions, their post-MBA plans, and expectation from universities in a very elaborate yet specific way. This can be a rather tedious task and often, students aren't sure of what to write and how. However, this doesn't mean that they are not capable of expressing their vision or mission on paper.

What General Education does is simply assist the applicant in presenting his application in the best possible manner, keeping in mind all the important points, without making it unnecessarily long and boring.

General Ed that began less than six months ago is using Internet-based tools to help students realise their B-School dreams

Getting into a good B-School is one of the biggest aspiration of many youngsterstoday. It is to help realise the same after going to some of the finest ones across the globe that prompted four friends to start General Education, an online venture to guide B-School aspirants.


General Education is a team of MBA graduates from top global B-Schools like Harvard, INSEAD, ISB and HEC, Paris. The firm formally initiated its operation in August 2007 with the motive to generate awareness and provide guidance to international B-School applicants with their applications and associated processes.
"Getting into a B-School is a long process. It doesn"t just mean writing your GMAT or attending the interview. One of the most intrinsic part is the essay on why you're applying to the particular school. We are here to help students with this, as we've been through the process ourselves," said Anoop Kumar, partner, GE.


There are times when the schools test students for more than just the obvious. "Once, ISB asked students to write on what they'd choose, knighthood or a million dollars. This requires out-of-the-box thinking," commented Anoop.


The four partners of GE are based out of Paris, Boston and Bangalore. "We mainly function on an Internet-based model, and have tools like video conferencing and voice chat in place to train candidates for different stages,"said Anoop.


The site that began this August has already had over 90 people seek help. "The students have all come from recommendations mainly word of mouth. We have had students from outside India seek help, but they have been Indians. We plan to expand and capture the US and other foreign markets," said Anoop.


GE is currently functioning as a part time activity. "We are waiting till we have a sustainable amount of candidates to say that we can bank only on this," said Anoop.


The web 2.0 ventures in the past year have been varied and innovative. Here's another to the long list, and a good one that too.
