William has high hopes.
With his 740 GMAT score, this first-ten college grad is targeting five of the M7 MBA programs in the U.S.: Harvard Business School, Stanford Graduate School of Business, Wharton, MIT Sloan, and Chicago Booth.
Born in Vietnam, this 25-year-old young professional ventured to Singapore to begin his undergraduate studies in finance at S.P. Jain. He moved to the school’s Dubai and then Syney campuses, landing a job as an analyst with an investment firm. For the past two years, he has worked as a corporate finance analyst at Transurban Group, a publicly-held, multi-billion company that builds and operates toll roads.
Does he have what it takes to surmount an overcrowded pool of male, finance types? In this episode of Friday’s With Sandy, HBSGuru.com Founder Sandy Kreisberg dissects his candidacy, offers some valuable advice for William and then assesses his odds of gaining an admit at his target schools.
