Candidate:

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!

Details:

Undergrad School: University of Alberta

Undergrad Major: Economics

GPA: 3.3 (85th Percentile), First Class Standing.

Age: 25,  Ethnicity: Asian or Indian

Extracurriculars: Football/Soccer: Organized and Executed Football Fanatic, a soccer tournament in New Delhi, from scratch. Attracted over 100 participants and received high ratings (2015).

Work History:

Big Life Wins:

Moving to Germany (not knowing any German) for a marketing internship, and being offered a permanent position at my company in spite of not having any formal marketing education.

I can also handle the occasional 8-hour German workshop now 😉

Post MBA Goal:

The Experts Rate The Odds At: 35%

  • John A. Byrne, P&Q Founder & Editor-In-Chief | Odds Assessment: 35%

    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!
