Professional Profile

Hi, I'm Shirish Gupta. I've been helping students to get into Top US universities for more than 7 years. I have an Undergraduate Degree in Computer Engineering from India & Masters in Computer Science from USA. I completed my Masters degree with Provost Scholarship and maintained a near perfect GPA. I topped up my education with a certificate course in Finance. I got selected in UBS Financial (Swiss Bank) right after my 2nd of 4 semesters Masters program. During my tenure with UBS, I gained a lot of interest in Psychology and worked vocationally with many high school students. I gained comprehensive knowledge of the process of counseling students about their career progression, along with the admission process to universities & colleges in the USA.

My life has been awesome and varied as a Computer Engineer, Financial Analyst, Teacher, Content Writer, Admission Counselor and Keynote speaker. I have worked with a Technology Company (TCS), a Financial company (UBS Financials) and various Educational Organizations. I feel proud to have education and work experience in all 3 fields of Science, Commerce and Humanities.

I want you to think progressively and beyond the ordinary as with Intuitive nature I always have great vision, not just for myself but also for my students as well.

I am actively involved in various research projects aimed at studying education patterns in Indian students and young adults.

I co-founded Mnemonic Education & Overseas Admissions with an aim to "Create Globally Smart Students".

it's not just work..

it's my passion

"FIND THE UNIQUE YOU"

"I believe that this generation (Millennial generation) is very energetic and enthusiastic but lacks the proper guidance. Students can do wonders if this energy can be channelized in the right direction. The problem is that everyone is 'telling' them what to do, and no one is able to engage them and hence the attention shifts but I work differently. I invest time with them; I engage them, understand them and I coach them so that they can perform to their maximum potential. An analogy that I give to explain this: You can't feed diesel fuel to a petrol engine. One needs to understand the student first and that's exactly how I begin."
