March's Student of the Month is Semyon Yakovlev and
is a great example of what hard work, a good resumé, and above
average GMAT scores can do for you.
Semyon graduated with a law degree from Moscow State
University. Currently, Semyon is a Legal Advisor to Golden Telecom,
a company that is part of NASDAQ. Since dealing in the business world
Semyon has realized that he would like to get more involved in the business
aspect and therefore he has decided to pursue an MBA. Semyon then came
to Pericles where after studying in our GMAT and TOEFL courses he received
a 710 on GMAT and an unbelievable 283 on TOEFL. He has applied to a
number of top ten schools and has been accepted to Chicago, and waitlisted
by MIT and Wharton. We are keeping our fingers crossed for you. Mr.
Yakovlev would like to study finance and strategic management and hopes
to get a job in investment in the banking sector of emerging markets.
He is also hoping to finance his studies through a number of loans available
for international students.
Semyon, Pericles would like to congratulate you on
everything that you have done so far and hope that you continue to be
as successful as you want!
