Why did you choose to apply to and attend Booth? I chose Booth not only because of its flexible curriculum and approach to problem-solving, but also because of its vibrant community.

Undergraduate school/major: HEC Liege / Major in Economics

Previous Industry: Telecoms for various multinationals in Belgium, Switzerland and London

Why did you choose to apply to and attend Booth? After almost 6 years working in Corporate Finance for the telecom industry, I wanted to "rebrand" myself on the job market and develop my skill set across other disciplines and functions. The opportunity to live in the US, as part of a world class institution like Booth, and meet other young professionals from all over the world were also major factors in my decision.

Activities: Learning Mandarin, Crossfit and TNDC pregames. Also very excited to join the Graduate Business Council as representative for my cohort, and BoothEd to keep contributing to the Education sector (after a first experience managing educational projects for an NGO in London)

Use three adjectives to describe you experience at Chicago Booth: Transformative, Demanding, Eye-opening

Ask me about...: Belgian beers

What city/country will you be in during the winter break? Sharing my time between the US and Belgium
