Part of a 2 man team which grew the office from start-up to becoming a top-10 player in the industry also increasing revenues by 400% y-o-y. Currently Officer in Charge of the division since the retirement of previous boss handling all aspects of the unit from business (originating and executing Capital Markets transactions) to administrative work (Person in charge of the unit for compliance, risk, audit, and other non-business functions.

Post MBA - Continue working in Investment Banking in M&A or Capital Markets in a large foreign institution.

Thanks for sharing your profile. Really strong work experience with a solid GMAT score, your GPA won't be at the top of any ranges for the schools you are applying to however, which would be the only limiting aspect of your profile. I think you are in play at all of the schools listed with LBS being the toughest for you as you are slightly out of range based on your profile
