Meet our MBA Consultants: Anne-Marie Vignola
October 31, 2014 :: Admissionado Team
Each week, we sit down and get to know one of our MBA Consultants.
Not to brag, but we have an amazing team of people, and there’s more to them than just their top school pedigree or their devilish good looks. When you’re choosing an MBA consultant, you don’t just want someone in your industry or who went to your dream school. You need an MBA consultant who will be able to work with you, connect with you, and push you to be your best… and that’s not the same person for everyone. Some people need an empathetic touch; others need a drill sergeant. That’s why we think it’s so important for you to get to know our guys before you get to work.
Ladies and Gentlemen, Admissionado MBA Consultant Anne-Marie Vignola.
So Anne-Marie, where are you living these days?
New York, NY
And your MBA is from…
Why did you go for an MBA?
My life was all about creative development in entertainment. An MBA was the perfect way to shift gears to business, meet some amazing people and set myself up to start a company.
What’s your all-time favorite memory from business school?
Taking the Cannes Film Festival class and partying with film makers in France. We might have actually learned some things as well.
What do you like most about being an MBA consultant?
I love helping people shape their stories and learning about a variety of experiences from around the world.
What’s the COOLEST place you’ve ever been?
A dance studio in Tanzania – I’m a lifelong dancer and learning the local moves was pretty unforgettable.
What’s something surprising about you?
I love playing pool. No one expects a 5′ tall woman to be able to run the table but I’ve been known to change that.
