Vikram Bhalla is a graduate of Lancaster University Management School (LUMS), a highly distinguished academic institution based in the United Kingdom. LUMS is Quadruple Accredited and Lancaster University is world ranked – see https://www.lancaster.ac.uk/lums/about-us/ . Vikram’s professional career in the corporate sector and in education counseling has been shaped by his studentship of Lancaster University’s broadbased and highly international Management Masters.


Vikram has been counseling students since 2004 and has vast experience in helping candidates make their best possible applications for study abroad. He has built up his expertise through university visits in USA, Canada, UK, Singapore, Australia and other countries; attending in-person trainings with international educators who are graduates of Ivy League institutions such as Harvard and Yale, and top international institutions such as Northwestern University, to learn the art of counseling and editing; North America based higher education conferences such as NAFSA and ICEF; and many more initiatives such as regular attendance of sessions and exhibiting at the QS World MBA Tour. In 2017, Vikram led Altura SAS’s participation in the Western Sydney Careers Expo, an event co-organised by India’s Chamber of Commerce. Here Vikram forged an exceptional understanding of Australia and New Zealand’s higher education by attending presentations and networking with educators. All these efforts have benefitted Altura SAS students and resulted in 100s of student placements in top international institutions, often with scholarship.
