This is where I say a bit about myself (now updated!)…
I’m a British born and raised guy with 12 years experience in corporate and investment banking, most recently as a global relationship manager in the maritime and energy space.
My career has allowed me to work in several European countries (UK, the Netherlands and Greece) and with clients and other financial institutions throughout Europe, the US, Asia and the Middle East.
I studied my Bachelor of Science degree at a leading UK college and got a 720 (phew!) in my first attempt at the GMAT.
Despite (or, maybe, because of!) my background and a lot of blood, sweat and tears going into my applications, I got dinged by five top US business schools in 2013/14. I’m now preparing to (re-)apply to full-time MBA programmes in Europe and the US in 2014/15.
After a rocky start in the MBA application process I (re-)applied to three top business schools in the 2014/15 season, got accepted by two (INSEAD, MIT Sloan) and waitlisted by the other (Wharton).
I’m currently an MIT Sloan MBA student in the Class of 2017.
