Mr. Soccer Club

About Me:

I grew up in the city of New Delhi and developed a passion for soccer in my youth. I pursued a B.A. in Economics and Psychology in Canada, and there I also tried my hand at student governance. Gradually, I developed a liking for Marketing and Communications- now I want to tie my passions of soccer, social enterprise, and marketing through an MBA!

    You sound like an ideal MBA applicant to London Business School. Why? Your stats are solid but most importantly you have made for yourself a global career at a young age. Going to school in Canada and then landing a job in Germany–and having to learn German–tells me a lot about your drive and your willingness to embrace and adopt to different cultures. One issue for you might be how selective your German startup employer is. You will need to spend some time explaining what your firm does and why it’s important. But your passion for soccer and your accomplishments should speak loudly to the admissions staff at LBS. Good luck to you!
