NEW YORK, May 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Economist GMAT Tutor has announced the winner of its semi-annual Brightest Minds MBA Scholarship Contest. The Contest offers a $25,000 scholarship that can be used towards tuition at any one of the participating business schools.
This season's winner is Victor Cannilla. He graduated from Switzerland's Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne with a degree in Physics as well as a Master of Science degree in Financial Engineering. He is now working as a management consultant and describes his goal as "helping to solve modern society's issues."
Cannilla beat nearly 3,000 other contest entrants by scoring highest on Economist GMAT Tutor's GMAT practice exam and writing the most compelling tie-breaker essay, winning out over 70 other top scorers. When asked his secret to winning, he says, "GMAT questions are tricky brain teasers. When preparing for the contest, I chose not to consider the exam as an annoying task, but rather as a fun and stimulating challenge, and that made my preparation much more enjoyable and effective!"
The next contest will launch in Autumn of 2018 and will be open to anyone who is considering pursuing an MBA or EMBA.
Cannilla can apply his MBA scholarship prize towards tuition at any of the contest's participating business schools where he is accepted into an MBA programme. This season's business schools are:
