Bhavik Gandhi

Bhavik wants to change the way people work. 

Born and raised in San Francisco, with a bachelor’s in Economics from the University of Southern California (Go Trojans!), Bhavik spent the first few years of his career as a Sales Strategy Consultant at the Alexander Group, helping Fortune 500 companies and startups build their go-to-market plans and accelerate top line growth. He then joined a social enterprise network called Yammer and, once in the startup world, never to look back. Yammer was ultimately acquired by Microsoft, so Bhavik joined SurveyMonkey for the opportunity to launch the Enterprise business from scratch. A career at the cutting edge of tech has shown Bhavik that in order to change traditional industries he would have to learn how they operate. So he braved the Boston winter and set off to Harvard Business School for his MBA.

At HBS, Bhavik led the Sales and Business Development Club and took advantage of the chance to travel. From Cuba to Iceland to China, Bhavik relished the opportunity to meet business leaders of all backgrounds and aspirations. Following HBS, he joined Hearsay Systems as Director of Business Operations. Hearsay is transforming the way financial advisors and insurance agents work by automating mundane tasks so they can go out and meet with the people that matter most - their customers! At Hearsay, Bhavik is responsible for developing the company’s strategic plan and working on special projects to drive growth.   

As the first person in his family to attend college, Bhavik takes great pride in mentoring others and helping them navigate the sometimes daunting business school admissions process. As someone who believes in the power of introspection (go read How Will You Measure Your Life by Clayton Christensen!), he works tirelessly to help students unearth profound truths about themselves. With attention to detail and careful thought, any student can put together a strong business school application.
