Coffee With Alumni - Mr. Mahesh Kalsekar

We were delighted to have the first ‘Coffee with Alumni’ session of our batch with Mr Mahesh Kalsekar, Director – Strategy and Business Development at Takeda Pharmaceuticals and alumnus of the 1995 batch. He has close to twenty years of experience in the healthcare sector across Corporate Strategy, Business Development, Consulting and Market Research verticals.

In the session, coordinated by the Alumni Committee, nine students got the opportunity to spend quality time engaging in a meaningful conversation with Mr Kalsekar over coffee and snacks. He shared with students his deep insights about the pharmaceutical industry in particular and marketing, consulting, advertising etc in general. He replied to each of the volley of questions that students asked, tailoring his answers to industry-specific details based on the students’ interests. 

Among other things, Mr. Kalsekar stressed the importance of building a relevant skill set based on the targeted industry (communication skills, analytical ability, Excel and Power Point etc) and of gaining work experience from local Indian firms before starting their own ventures for aspiring entrepreneurs. The details he shared about career growth paths and opportunities in the pharmaceutical industry, in addition to those in general market research and strategy consulting were particularly interesting and insightful. 

The students found the session immensely beneficial and look forward to more such interactions with industry professionals. We would like to extend our sincere gratitude to Mr Kalsekar for consenting to spend time with the students.
