Describe your biggest accomplishment in your career so far: Landing a dream MBA internship offer before even stepping foot on campus!

Looking back on your experience, what advice would you give to future business school applicants? Start researching schools and visiting them early in the process. It is very important to evaluate the student culture and academic environment in person. There may be schools that seem great in rankings, but wouldn’t be the best personal fit. The MBA program chosen should offer the kind of experience that would allow for maximum development on a professional, personal, and social level.

What led you to choose this program for your full-time MBA? I chose Georgetown because of the importance it placed on offering a global business education and developing principled leaders. One of the most appealing offerings was their unique Global Business Experience that allows students to travel abroad and consult in an industry or specific Fortune 500 company. Months are spent addressing a real business challenge and then traveling to the client’s country for a week to present the recommendations to senior leaders. This real-life consulting project offers the ability to develop management and analytical skills in a global setting that I wouldn’t achieve elsewhere.

Tell us about your dream job or dream employer at this point in your life? My dream job would be working for a company whose vision I could work passionately toward. It’s important for me to believe in the purpose and greater mission of an organization. I would want to wake up every day excited to help further the goals of that company for something greater than just maximizing their bottom line, such as innovation and global reach. I would want my role to influence the strategy of a company and make a lasting impact.

What would you like your business school peers to say about you after you graduate from this program? I would want my peers to believe that I was personable, driven, and I strived to help those around me.
