Varun’s Entrepreneurial Journey
A budding entrepreneur, a seasoned academician and a visionary - Varun Jain, is the Founder, National
Instructor and Managing Director of Miles Professional Education. He is a licensed US CPA and CMA.
Varun started his career graph very early on, when he participated in his family business. Varun has
been the Vice President of Harsh Plasto Metalizers India Pvt. Ltd, during which he has been part of
strategic management and the leadership team for business operations. During his stint here, Varun
worked towards achieving market leadership - an improvement from their current base at 50% market
share in the niche segment of fan decorative parts supplied to all manufacturers in India including
Crompton Greaves, Usha, Bajaj, Havells, Orient and Anchor (Panasonic). Varun's vision and initiative led
to expansion of the existing manufacturing facility at Hyderabad and setting up a plant in Haridwar,
Armed with a Bachelor's in Commerce from Osmania University, Varun then set out to work with
Deloitte Financial Advisory Services, where he was part of the Valuation Team. During his days in
Deloitte, Varun realized that a commerce graduate in India, typically takes two career paths – 1) MBA
and 2) CA/CWA/CS, post-graduation. Not many are aware of the US CPA and CMA courses and realize
that they could be part of this elite group as well. Varun immediately completed his CPA, which also
made him realize that this is one area that has remained predominantly untouched by many Indian
Right after his CPA, Varun got placed with Morgan Stanley Investment Banking Division, where he was
part of the Real Estate Investments team. He performed exceedingly well and was named the best
investment banker on the floor and was also offered a job in Morgan Stanley's investment banking
division in London. Simultaneously, Varun also had another offer from another multinational
corporation with a high paycheck in the Middle East. However, Varun went back to his career aspiration
to grow into an entrepreneur and achieve his dream for training and guiding Indian commerce
graduates towards the US CPA and CMA courses. Thus, Varun created Miles Professional Education in
2011 and has succeeded in establishing market leadership in India for Miles.
As part of the Miles initiative, Varun has successfully trained hundreds of students for the CPA and CMA
exams. He has created valuable training videos which are used as an important tool by local instructors
to conduct CPA and CMA training across India. Currently, Miles has established presence in 10 cities
across India and Varun is looking to adding 2 more in the Indian geography, further to which, he has
planned on global expansion. Varun has also ventured into creating an online model for classroom
training at Miles, which once released would succeed to be a phenomena. In addition, Varun has also
been actively involved in one of his pet projects, a brain child – a revolution in online scholastic
education that has laid its foundation stone!
To friends, colleagues and students, Varun is a mobile think – tank, with ideas and thoughts for
improvement both in terms of business and academics. Keep learning as a key motivator, Varun is also
targeting a global management qualification in the short term. In his leisure time, Varun enjoys playing
squash and basketball. An enthusiastic and articulate orator, Varun has been part of multiple debates,
discussions and conferences all along his career journey. At this point too, Varun dedicates a part of his
time towards his family business other than his efforts towards Miles and personal self and thus remains
an inspiration to many!
