Each week, we sit down and get to know one of our MBA Admissions Consultants.
And your MBA is from…
Columbia Business School
Why did you go for an MBA?
I wanted to move into pharmaceutical marketing, after having spent time in biotech process development. Regeneron was close to launching its first product and I wanted to be part of that. Plan worked. I moved into Marketing and led the launch of Arcalyst, the first product.
What’s your all-time favorite memory from business school?
Graduation… receiving my diploma with my then 1-yr old in my arms.
What do you like most about being an MBA consultant?
Meeting different people with a vast array of backgrounds, jobs, interests and helping them get into schools. They are so grateful for the help; it’s an amazing feeling.
What’s the COOLEST place you’ve ever been?
Bangkok. Mix of old and new world with such richness in temples and palaces contrasted with such poverty of the streets.
Tell us something surprising about you.
