Harneesh chose to study at Loughborough University London due to its renowned student experience and high rankings in national league tables.

Prior to studying Entrepreneurship and Innovation Management MSc, Harneesh studied an undergraduate degree in Mumbai. 

What were you doing before you started your master’s degree?

I was pursuing my undergraduate degree in Commerce (Financial Market) from Narsee Monjee College of Commerce and Economics, Mumbai.

Why did you choose Loughborough University London?

When looking for a University, I felt that student satisfaction was really important which I found Loughborough being 1st place in the 2018 Times Higher Education (THE) Student Experience Survey. I was also in the Collaborative Project module which was a great platform to compile the theoretical knowledge into a practical experience.

What’s your favourite thing about Loughborough University London?

I loved the entrepreneurial whirlpool in Loughborough University London. When I joined the University I knew I had a deep passion about the subject but looking at the fellow classmates' zest and the environment I was around, I was motivated to think outside of the box, now I’m a graduate with a business idea.

What helped you choose Loughborough University London?

I did a lot of research online. As well as this, I was moved when a Student Ambassador from the University called me to give me information about the University and help answer any queries I had.

What did you enjoy the most about your course?

I loved the Family Business module!

Describe what it is like to be a postgraduate student and how this differs from being an undergraduate.

Doing a postgraduate degree requires a lot of determination, hard-work and passion.

Describe a day in the life of a postgraduate student on your course

An average day would include attending my classes (lecturers, seminars or tutorials), as well as doing a little bit of coursework or group work after. The day would end at Canalside with a bite to eat or a drink.

Where do you see your career in 5 years’ time?

I hope to see myself continuing being really passionate towards women in entrepreneurship. I also hope to see myself as an established business woman in India.

How did you like to spend your time away from your studies?

I liked to spend time with my friends and read. I also loved exploring London!


If you could give one piece of advice to a postgraduate student, what would it be?

Follow your heart and your passion. Always trust your own gut. Things will work out because they always have.
