Aakriti C.

Development Sector and Management Specialist

MBAIndian School of Business, India



An urban planner and policy specialist with an MBA in Strategy and Leadership with 8 years of work experience across corporate and non-profit sectors. I hope to combine my knowledge of urban planning with lessons in strategy learned from my other experiences towards the improvement and sustenance of cities. My experience is extremely well-rounded, having worked across countries, sectors and even functions within the urban/transport planning. My time with Shakti Sustainable Energy Foundation was very heavily focused on urban development since our portfolio was a bit lopsided towards systems solutions to transport planning issues. Building collaborative partnerships, communication, and policy analyses and research were integral to my responsibilities and continue to be my primary strengths. As a transport planner with HNTB, I was the urban planning member in a team of civil, traffic and computer engineers. My capstone projects at the School of Planning and Architecture, and most recently at the Indian School of Business were both focused on sustainability and development in eco-sensitive areas. Finally, in Atkins I was directly associated with the Property team, researching and identifying opportunities for property developments (across sectors), bid management, business development and marketing. With such a balanced and holistic understanding of urban planning, I aspire to guide urban policies based on astute research, management foresight and true to the principles of sustainable development.
