Madhav Bhushan
“Instead of trying to lead from the front and taking the burden of the team on myself, I have started trusting the instincts of others. I now believe that a good leader is one who knows how to use varying perspectives to find the right solution.”

Why I Chose Fuqua

First, Fuqua has the most well established MMS program in the United States. Second, the learning is immense as we get to interact with and learn from not only our professors but also the more experienced MBA students. Third, Duke is an incredible brand and getting the opportunity to be associated with such a brand is something I did not want to let go of. Most importantly, am I happy with the choice I made? The answer is a resounding YES!

Before Fuqua

I have prior work experience in Sales & Marketing, Transaction Advisory (M&A), Non-Profit Consulting (Education), Business Development and Financial Advisory for Mutual Funds.

After Fuqua

I’ve had a variety of internship experiences which led me to decide on either Wealth Management or Investment Banking as a career focus. I am open to working across the globe as I start out.


What I Love About the Network

The Fuqua network is incredible. You only realize how deeply the team mentality is embedded in every Fuquan when you reach out to them for guidance. It is compelling to see how someone whom you haven’t ever met or interacted with before goes out of their way to help you out. Fuqua is the strongest team out there in the world—every Fuqua alumnus has got your back.
