Candidate:

Mr. Mexican Central Banker

About Me:

I am an economist with experience in investment banking and currently working at Mexico’s central bank, the Bank of Mexico. I excelled during my undergrad studies and have relevant experience in quant-heavy positions. I’m applying for MBA programs in the USA and Europe as I am looking to broaden my employment opportunities and to work abroad for a while.

The English language requirement is no issue, as I have a 112 score on the TOEFL IBT. I’d like to know if my admission chances vary considerably when applying to top European business schools.
