Hi, I am planning a big career move and I would like to share with you some information and would like you to help me gain direction.
Wroclaw School of Banking (International Business and Finance Bachelor Degree)
Definitely non – target but strong regional university. I’ve done there good, with final GPA around 4,65/5.
I qualified there for Erasmus exchange programme (from the second place at the entire univeristy) and spend 1 semestr at EDC Paris.
Kozminski University (Masters Degree in Corporate Finance and Accounting)
Best private university in Poland (private universities in Poland aren’t very well – known. As you may know private sector was reborn in Poland only 23 years ago with the fall of communism). Nevertheless this programme was ranked very good at latest FT ranking: http://rankings.ft.com/businessschoolrankings/masters-in-finance-pre-experience-2012 GPA of 4,4/5. After defending my thesis (option valuation) I was proposed to write an article with the participation of school and one of the leading professors. Unfortunately I haven’t done that because I’ve changed my interests and the professor was very busy and not very supportive.
Additionally I was the CFO of student club (project management). Unfortunately this wasn’t very active club, we’ve done one project and that’s it.
Warsaw School of Economics (Postgraduate Statistics and Data Mining)
I’ve passed all my exams but haven't finished my thesis and defend it. I would try to do it this year.
6 weeks – intern at big commercial bank in Poland
2 months – business intelligence analyst at BI leader
2 months – accounting reconciliation specialist at big international bank
6 months pricing analyst leader at top international retailer
1 year BIG 4 accounting firm financial services audit division.
My goal: To be admitted to top 7 US MBA & join MBB.
• Spend additional 2 years at BIG 4, be innovative, change some processes and improve the work of my group.
• Start a business and prepare some competition for other start ups. It may even finish with a book describing the whole experience.
• Obtain 750+ gmat score
Do you think this could help achieve my goals? Maybe some other activities would gain me more competitiveness? Please share your thoughts and help me.
