Full-Time MBA

Undergraduate school/major: I attended UAX University and majored in business administration and tourism management.

Career plans: I plan to work in the tech industry on the West Coast.

Why did you choose Chicago Booth? I chose to attend Booth because I wanted to challenge myself every single day, and I knew that Booth, with its rigorous academic program, flexible curriculum, and best-known faculty, was the best place I could do so. The alumni and students that I met during the application process engaged me in a unique way.

Use three adjectives to describe your experience at Chicago Booth: Incredible, dynamic, and challenging.

What do you consider a "must visit" place or "must do" activity in Chicago? The Chicago dining scene with its famous Chicago-style deep-dish pizza, and I suggest that you experience a Bulls basketball game.

Ask me about...: The application process (with a nontraditional background), student groups, or Booth's flexible curriculum.
