Welcome to September's Student of the Month. This
month we have selected Elena Kharlamova as our honored student for her
hard work, dedication to succeed, and for her accomplishments thus far.
Elena, a graduate of Novosibirsk University of Consumers'
Cooperation, where she got her degree in Economics, is a current employee
of IBS, where she works as an Administration Manager. For those of you
who do not know IBS is a Russian IT holding.
Well, like all of our students, after working for
some time Elena decided to get her MBA, and like so many of our students
she chose Pericles to help her prepare. The help paid off for her because
after studying GMAT with us Elena got a 700. It is also appropriate
to mention the she received a 270 on the TOEFL, which is high enough
to get into any of the top b-schools in the world. Way to go Elena!
Now that the exams are over Elena can concentrate
on her applications to two b-schools. The schools to which she is currently
applying are Kellogg & Duke. Once she is accepted Elena plans on
taking out some student loans to help pay for her education. The only
thing left after applying is deciding what to do after she gets her
degree and we are sure that whatever she does she will be successful.
Elena, Pericles would like to say GOOD JOB and GOOD
LUCK in the future and that we were happy to have you as a student.
You are always welcome back at Pericles!
Postscriptum: On March 11, 2003
Elena dropped by the Pericles office with a bunch of flowers to tell
us that she was accepted to BOTH Duke and Kellogg! It feels great to
be in a position to choose, and she has decided to accept Kellogg. She
made this very tough choice based on her impressions during a visit
to both campuses. Afterwards she felt that she would fit in best at
Kellogg, and she also felt most positive about the future job prospects
in the area surrounding Kellogg. Best of luck in Illinois Elena. We’re
sure you’ll “knock ‘em dead”!
