Welcome to Alumni & Corporate Relations

Rajesh Balasubramanian [2001/BT/EE], Director, Ascent Education

I finished B.Tech Electrical Engg from IIT Madras in 2001. Completed PGDM from IIM Bangalore in 2003. Worked for about 6 years in the financial sector. The most significant part being a 4 year stint as an Equity Research Analyst with Credit Suisse in London.

Returned to India in 2009 and joined 2IIM as director soon after. Have been running the CAT product at 2IIM for the past three years. Took CAT in 2011 and 2012 and secured 100th percentile in both years. Currently involved in a project to teach math to school students from class VI to class VIII.

About me: Hated banking, could not give up straightaway as it was my first relevant job and it paid well. Have always liked teaching so ending up with the education sector is no surprise. Very keen to reach out to school students and build a product that helps them.
