Our July Student of the Month is Olga Bourdova. Olga
is a graduate of Moscow State University's Department of Computational
Mathematics and Cybernetics. After graduation, like most people, Olga
had to work and eventually her career lead her to PricewaterhouseCoopers
where she is a tax manager. It is at this time when Olga decided to
look into getting an MBA, which is when she came to Pericles.
Olga came to Pericles to study in our GMAT course
and then she went on to receive an astounding 700 on her GMAT. It should
also be mentioned that Olga also had to take the TOEFL and on this exam
she obtained an impressive 277. After taking the GMAT Olga chose INSEAD
as the school where she wanted to get her MBA. Why? Well, she feels
that INSEAD offers the most. These aspects range from the fact that
no major nationality is the majority at INSEAD to being centrally located
in Europe, which in turn will offer her more chances of obtaining a
job in Europe. Like most of us, however, Olga has to pay for her education,
which is why she is planning on applying for the ABN AMRO loan. In addition
it will help her since she is going with her family for the one year
study. However, when it is all said and done she is planning on one
day, if not immediately, coming back to Russia and working.
Well, Olga, we wish you luck with your studies and
hope you come back to Pericles to let us know how you are doing. Good
Luck at INSEAD and in everything you do!
