From the Windy City to one of the most prestigious universities in the world, Kendall College hospitality student and soon-to-be graduate Manthan Trivedi will soon be taking his studies to one of the Ivy League’s finest, Harvard University. Manthan has been accepted to Harvard’s Masters of Science program with a concentration in Sustainability. We couldn’t be happier to see one of our students pursue his passion at a top institution! We recently caught up with Manthan to check in on what he’s looking forward to at Harvard and reflecting on his time at Kendall.
KC – What skills did you learn at Kendall that prepared you to be able to be accepted into an Ivy league program?
MT – Kendall helped me develop leadership, research and formal systematic approach to a subjective topic that is required by every professional to excel in their field. I believe it is these primary skills that helped me portray my potential in the enrollment and admission process at Harvard.
KC – What are you most looking forward to as you prepare to attend Harvard?
MT – I am looking forward to getting a deeper understanding about Sustainability and learn Environmental aspects that influence Sustainability and its business application.
KC – Tell us about one of your favorite stories from your time as a student at Kendall?
MT – My experience as CFO in the Capstone Project at Kendall was a memorable time for me both as a student and for personal/professional development. During this time, I learned the importance of integration and was able to work on some of my limitations.
KC – Tell us about what you hope to do in your career?
MT – I wish to pursue a Ph.D and help develop Sustainability to expand its applicability and relevance in the mainstream framework.
