Describe your biggest accomplishment in your career so far: I built up my own investment coverage universe in three months, starting from scratch.

Looking back on your experience, what advice would you give to future business school applicants? I received this advice when I applied, and I want to pass it on. Prepare the whole application package as if you were writing a story of your life. This story should include where you come from, where you are now, and where you want to go. Of course, this story must illustrate how business schools can help you get to where you want to be. But more importantly, you must make sure the main arc of your life that you depict is logical to follow and easy to understand given the context you provide.

What led you to choose this program for your full-time MBA? I chose to go to Yale for two main reasons that resonate with my values and goals.

First, Yale is the most global top US business school that I have visited. Compared to peers, Yale has the highest percentage of international students and a large global partner school network. Additionally, Yale’s student body seems very internationally-minded. A large portion of students I met there, international or domestic, have international work experience or global career aspirations. Yale’s resources and its connections will position me well for a global career.

Second, I am drawn to Yale’s mission to educate leaders for business and society. Business can be an effective way to shape a society under the right stewardship. I want to be a leader in the business world and perhaps even in the political world one day. Yale, under its unique education philosophy, accommodates my desire to have an impact in both business and beyond.

Tell us about your dream job or dream employer at this point in your life? My dream job at this point is to help countries in Africa develop their renewable power infrastructure projects. This job can best combine my language skills, engineering interests, and business skills to directly impact people’s lives, and the projects will make a difference in the fight against global climate change.

What would you like your business school peers to say about you after you graduate from this program? “He makes the school fun and is a great person and a good hockey player.”
