Why did you choose the Wisconsin MBA?
First of all, specialization model helps you to hit the ground running, gathering you with students who have similar interests and career goals from day one. OTM Specialization has STEM designation, which is important for internationals who are seeking jobs in US under OPT. STEM also emphasizes that program has robust quantitative approach. Second, class size is low enough to know everyone in the program by name, which definitely helps to build a close-knit alumni base, but large enough to allow a strong network. I would say right in the goldilocks zone. Last but not least, the city of Madison. Stationed between 2 gorgeous lakes, Madison has lots of outdoor activities with low cost of living. Madison is generally ranked as one of the best cities in US, having one of the highest restaurants/activities per capita in whole US.

What advice would you give to prospective students?
Do not hesitate to get in touch with students, staff and faculty. Ask questions. Visit the campus if you can. The more you are involved, the more you will be satisfied with your decision.

Please share some fun and interesting facts about yourself.
I love soccer, both as a player and a spectator. I encourage my friends to attend major soccer tournaments across the world and organize all the bookings and itineraries.
