The point of our Student of the Month page is to pick
students who epitomize the qualities of a good student and who succeed
in whatever they attempt to do. This month this is exactly what we bring
you. Anatoly Yermolov has taken all of our Pre-MBA courses, GMAT Preparation,
TOEFL Preparation, and MBA Advising, and as you can see that hard work
he put into studying paid off. Though he used many of the methods that
we teach in our classes, Anatoly deserves all the credit for going out
there and gaining the results that many people only dream of obtaining.
710 on the GMAT, 273 on the TOEFL with a 5 on the essay portion, the
only words that come to my mouth are WOW! and WAY TO GO!
We at Pericles are very proud of him, mostly because
he shows that hard work, determination, and dedication can truly lead
to success, which is why he was chosen as October's Student of the Month.
Anatoly is a graduate of the Russian Finance Academy
where he studied Finance with a specialization in taxation. After graduation
and years of working Anatoly ended up at ABN AMRO Bank where he handles
the accounts of chemical and pharmaceutical companies. After years here
he decided to go and get his MBA so he came to Pericles to obtain the
help that he felt he needed, and as you can see that help paid off (see
Now that the exams are over, Anatoly has started the
application process. Some of the schools that he plans on applying to
include Wharton, Kellogg, Duke, and INSEAD. He hopes to obtain some
financial aid to help pay for his costs, which nowadays most schools
have some kind of cooperation with a bank so this should not be a problem.
After graduation he plans on pursuing a career in corporate finance
and hopes to work in the healthcare sector, either with an investment
bank or a major pharmaceutical company.
Well Anatoly, I am sure that you will have no problem
getting into any of the business schools and any company would be making
a mistake not to hire you once you finish your studies.
Anatoly, Pericles would like to say GOOD JOB and GOOD
LUCK in the future and we know the kind of person you are and know that
no matter what you try to do you will be successful. We would also like
to say thank you for choosing Pericles. We enjoyed having you as a student.
Postscriptum: On February 25,
2003, Anatoly informed us that he was accepted to Duke University’s
Fuqua School of Business. Congratulations again, Anatoly!
