The Chicago Booth Pakistan Club organized a Student-Hosted Admissions Event at the Pearl Continental Hotel, Karachi on December 20, 2006.
The current Chicago Booth students who hosted the event were Asim Raja, '07, Ammar Rizki, '08, and Mohammad Adeel Saleem, PhD candidate. A number of prospective students attended the event to learn about the application process as well as learn more about the Chicago Booth. Besides the prospective students, the attendees included GSB alumni Faraz Azam Kazmi ('00) of Standard Chartered Bank of Pakistan and Ms. Maleeha Humayun Bangash, '03 of MCB Bank, both of whom are currently based in Karachi.
The event was advertised in local papers to attract the candidates and raise general awareness. This event, like our previous ones in 2005, was a continuation of efforts by the GSB Pakistan Club to help build the Chicago Booth brand in Pakistan.
