I am an MBA graduate of INSEAD and the former Executive Director and Head of HR and CSR of one of Samsung Electronics’ biggest subsidiaries worldwide (at age 34, youngest in company’s history) with annual revenue of over US$2.0 billion and more than 2,000 employees.
I started coaching MBA applicants right after graduating from INSEAD in 2012. At that time, it was more like a hobby while focusing on my career at Samsung. However, over the years, I found myself more and more interested in the admissions consulting world and realized it was the perfect job to complement my HR career: after all, one of the main focuses of HR is helping people advance in their careers, which is precisely what I do now as a fully dedicated admissions coach.
Additional facts about me:
- I have experience as Admissions Interviewer for INSEAD
- I was born and raised in Barcelona in a multicultural family (Spanish dad and Korean mom)
- I hold two undergrad degrees in Telecommunications Engineering (Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya) and Business (Universitat de Barcelona), and an MSc in Telecommunications (New Jersey Institute of Technology – Magna Cum Laude)
- My professional background includes Private Equity, IT & Management Consulting and Telecommunications
- I have worked and/or studied in the US, Mexico, Spain, France, Singapore, South Korea, Peru,
- I am fluent in English, Spanish and Catalan, and conversant in Korean and French
After 5 years between South Korea and Mexico, I decided to leave Samsung to set up my own consultancy firm, ARLee Consulting, where I help applicants just like you get accepted to the world’s Top MBA Programs.
What distinguishes ARLee Consulting?
(1) I put my HR hat on
Leveraging my HR experience, I look at admissions through the Recruiting Lens. Furthermore, I am very familiar with different organizational structures, and I know well the Job Description for most roles. Additionally, I am also able to offer Career Coaching as part of our services, which is
particularly useful for those applicants with no clear post-MBA career goals.
(2) I bring industry expertise and strong business acumen
When it comes to resume, essay, and recommendation writing, I don’t limit my role to purely editing the materials. Instead, leveraging my industry expertise and strong business acumen, I take an active approach and advise you on what and what doesn’t make sense from both career and admissions perspectives.
(3) I provide a really fast turnaround
Most of the time, my turnaround is just a few hours (sometimes even a few minutes!) and typically never goes beyond 24 hours.
(4) I am very flexible
Something that distinguishes me from the rest of the admissions consultants is that I try to adapt to our clients’ needs. Therefore, I am open to discuss the service and fees that best suit you.
