Ayush Khaitan, like many of us, comes from a middle-class family. He had to think twice before deciding to get enrolled in MBA which is a very expensive course. He takes inspiration from his dad who has supported him throughout his life. It’s the same inspiration that probably helped him grab an opportunity in the form of PNB Housing Finance Limited Protsahan Scholarship.
This scholarship has given him the impetus to go ahead and achieve even greater things in life. We got in touch with Ayush Khaitan and asked him a few questions. Here are the excerpts from the same. Read the Scholar Success Story of Ayush Khaitan.
