MESSAGE TO ASPIRING FEMALE MBAs
MBA ADMISSIONS DIRECTOR
“It is my great pleasure to write this message to you as I reflect upon the days when I was an applicant back in 2013. I could still vividly remember the butterflies in my stomach when considering which business school to attend, the uncertainties implied, and where the chosen one would eventually lead me.
The journey thus far has been arduous and challenging but extremely rewarding. The decision to invest in my personal growth and to launch myself in this adventure across the ocean away from my family and friends seemed insane and unreasonable at first but turned out to be the most empowering decision of my life.
With this, I hope my words for you today to be of encouragement and support. Congratulations already for being at the stage of considering such a transformational experience! Everyone has a part to play to strengthen the community of female leaders in the business world, and this includes you.
My invitation is for you to connect with our alumnae and the admissions team to learn how IESE can contribute to your plans and further develop you both personally and professionally. Prepare thoroughly, know your strengths and goals, and trust yourself!
I hope our paths will cross in this process. Good luck!”
