Episode 101: How to Finance Your MBA
In this podcast episode, learn all about financing your MBA—from the cost of attendance to the mechanics of borrowing (and repaying) student loans. To illuminate this process, we welcome two special guests, Nikhil Agarwal of LeverEdge, the first collective bargaining group for student loans, and Pritish Nair of Prodigy Finance, a premier lender for students studying abroad.
Nikhil Agarwal, a co-founder of LeverEdge, will soon graduate Harvard Business School with an MBA. His pre-MBA work experience included engineering at GE and Boeing, and he turned to entrepreneurship in 2018 when he co-launched LeverEdge.
Pritish Nair handles business development for Prodigy Finance. Prior to working in the FinTech industry, Pritish used to work with the admissions team at the Indian School of Business (ISB) handling outreach for their flagship MBA program. He is a design graduate from Raffles University and an AIESEC alumnus who is passionate about art, education, and all things marketing. In his current role, he enables students to finance their Masters degrees abroad.
Tune in below as they share everything you need to know about financing your MBA, and additional insights into the student loan market based on the COVID-19 pandemic.
