Education & Career Consultant in Mumbai, Karan Gupta Consulting – Every student Dr. Karan Gupta has counselled has succeeded in achieving admission to a prestigious overseas university.

Dr. Karan Gupta, is one of India’s most successful education consultants. In practice since 1999, Gupta has counseled over 50,100 personal students and has delivered seminars to over 158,000 people.

Gupta’s business philosophy is driven by his belief that education is the most powerful tool we have at our disposal, and that a lack of knowledge about how the educational system works should be no barrier to entry.

Message from Dr. Karan Gupta

I have personally coached over 50,100 students on choosing the right graduate course for study abroad. I have a 100% success rate in placing students overseas to study for a master’s degree across the whole academic and business spectrum. As a Harvard alum I specialize in coaching students on how to maximise their chances of acceptance onto a graduate study program at prestigious Ivy League colleges in the USA and other renowned institutions worldwide. I help you craft admission applications that not only meet all the requirements, but help to elevate you above the competition.

Gupta’s track record is impressive. Every student he has counselled has been accepted to a university or higher education setting. His knowledge of grant and scholarship funding systems abroad means that 90% of his students achieve some level of funding support, and 20% have achieved full scholarship or financial aid packages. Gupta feels that getting the right advice in this area is crucial for students. “I went to the US on a full scholarship to complete my undergraduate education. Pursuing an American education and working in the Office of Admissions, Financial Aid and International Student Office enriched my knowledge of international admissions. I learnt how to effectively prepare an admissions application and how to maximize a student’s chance of admission and financial aid”.

Karan Gupta Education Foundation

Karan Gupta Education Foundation (KGEF) is a non-profit organization set up by Harvard Business School and IE Business School alum, Karan Gupta. The mission of the organization is to provide education, training and skills to the underprivileged, especially women and children. 

Our vision is to make a positive difference in the lives of individuals and change the world. Since 1999, we have provided education, career guidance and training to over 92,000 underprivileged students. We have assisted thousands of students in getting full scholarships for their higher education. 

Our preference is not to accept donations or funds. We believe in total transparency and instead prefer that every sponsor/donor pays the schools/institutes directly.
