NEW YORK, May 31, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Economist GMAT Tutor has announced the winner of its semi-annual Brightest Minds MBA Scholarship Contest.
The goal of the contest is to find one of the world's "Brightest Minds" who plans to attend business school, and help fund his or her education. This season's winner, Maria El Jichi, is a Lebanese finance professional who has been working in credit risk in the United Arab Emirates for the past five years. She beat more than 3,000 other contest entrants by scoring highest on Economist GMAT Tutor's GMAT simulation exam and writing the most compelling tie-breaker essay, winning out over 58 other top scorers.
Ms. El Jichi hopes to use her MBA to advance her career and contribute to increasing gender equality in the workplace. "I noticed that very few women held senior positions in companies," she explained. "I would like the future generation of girls to see it as a norm to have gender equality in the workplace and not an exception."
