Dream career: Hedge Fund Manager
Why Business School? Achieving an MBA will set you apart from your competition in the work force, help you develop professionally, and give you the credentials for advancement to upper level management within an organization.
Best GMAT study tip? Begin preparing early!
My three post-graduation goals: Gain industry experience in investment management, start my own company, become a published author.
Before business school, I was: An undergraduate in economics and a cheerleader at the University of Hawaii.
When I’m not in class, you’ll find me: At the gym, at the movies, or at the beach!
Advice for anyone thinking about b-school? Take in as much as possible throughout your MBA experience and remember you’ll get out what you put in. Build as big of a professional network as possible. Achieving your MBA will provide you with so many more career opportunities.
My remedy for pre-test nerves: Listen to calming music, take deep breaths, and visualize yourself doing great on the test!
On the day before your exam, you should: Relax, go watch a movie, have a healthy dinner, and go to bed early!
Why You Should Consider an Early Career MBA
"I always knew I wanted to get an MBA, but found that many schools required at least 2-3 years of work experience. I chose an early career MBA because I wanted to prepare myself for a management position now. My early MBA program provides the experiential learning opportunities that will open doors in my career."
GMAT Prep Experience
"The first time I took the GMAT, I was unprepared, so I took a step back, developed a study plan, prepared properly, did better my second time, and opened up many new opportunities."
