I am a Class of 2018 MBA candidate at IESE Business School in Barcelona and went from my first MBA research in October to taking the GMAT in December to getting 100% school admits in January.  As a diploma master mariner, I currently sail the world on a 500 person cruise ship where I lead 160 crew members. My interest in the management world was sparked when I interned in our family maritime ship supplier business. I love to read about tech, innovation, and stock markets and keep myself fit with running, gym workouts, and football.
