My role is to provide a business perspective in the world of the non-governmental organization. I do this in two ways: I provide advice for the foundation's microfinance clients and other beneficiaries. I also help the foundation’s own social businesses to become more effective and thereby make us less dependent on external funding.

Words of Advice for Your Career…

Being flexible, having a willingness to learn and having a continuous determination to “set the bar high” have opened up a world of career opportunities.

… And on Choosing an MBA Program

Check out which recruiters the school has a strong relationship with—be it banks, multinational corporations, consulting companies, etc. When recruiters have a good relationship with schools they will tend to recruit from them, and if you know the company or industry that you want to pursue after your MBA, any pre-existing relationship between the school and that employer will help.
