In the Berkeley MBA program, we develop leaders who embody our distinctive culture’s four key principles, one of which is “Confidence Without Attitude” or “confidence with humility.” Please comment on how the applicant reflects this Berkeley Haas value

Piyush has a high Emotional Quotient (EQ) and is cognizant of how to channelize his strengths and shortcomings. Transitioning from a structured MNC culture at Goldman Sachs (GS) to a startup was never an easy task. However, Piyush was able to adjust to the new work environment, the people around him, the fast-paced culture, and the uncertainties seamlessly. As all of us were traversing uncharted waters, there were many a times when we hit rough patches as a firm, when we spent a lot of time on a deal and it didn’t materialize. I am sure Piyush might have contemplated quitting in one or more such moments. However, he did not and stayed committed to the firm through thick and thin. He had a single-minded agenda of learning more and attaining exposure from the deals he was a part of. It was only at my suggestion that he decided to move to Axis capital in pursuit of working on larger ticket sized deals.
