Why did you go for an MBA?

I got my MBA because I'm from an engineering background and I'm interested in business. I didn't have a specic goal in mind, but I wanted to open more career paths. I think b-school did that.

What was your most embarrassing moment from school?

Probably when I got cold-called and hadn't read the case so I tried making stu up on the spot. That happened a few times. :-P

What's the coolest place you've ever been?

Iceland; Beautiful country and beautiful people. There are lots of cool activities one can do too like hiking a glacier or riding horses. And the water is so fresh and clean.
