I'm a 28-year old African American male who received a B.S. in Business Administration and B.A. in Chinese from the University of Southern California. I studied abroad for 1 year in Beijing, China, and speak advanced-level Chinese.
I have 4 years of work experience in South Korea. I spent 2 years working as an English teacher and 2 years working as the Academic Director of the biggest English academy in South Korea where I managed over 10 instructors, recruited new instructors, and handled all administrative tasks in my branch. I speak advanced-level Korean as well.
I hope to use an MBA to transition from the Education industry to international trade. My parents are from Kenya, so I would like to get involved with trade between Kenya and East Asian countries. I hold 2 passports (Kenya and the US).
I got a 720 GMAT (V41/Q48) on my first and only try. What are my chances of getting into a top school? I'm planning to apply to HBS, Stanford, Yale, Haas, NYU, and UCLA
