A Crucial Coffee Meeting

Kevin Krieger’s coffee meeting with an Admissions Manager played a key role in his decision to apply to the Copenhagen MBA .

After developing a general understanding of the Copenhagen MBA through the information available on CBS’s website, I still had some lingering questions about my specific situation and interests. Among others, the questions on my mind included:

  • Is now the right time in my career to pursue an MBA?
  • Will I be able to take Danish language classes alongside the MBA program?
  • How successful have past students been in securing employment in Denmark after graduation, especially students with similar backgrounds to mine?

Fortunately, Fatima Dhaif, Admissions Manager for the Copenhagen MBA, reached out to let me know that she was in town and available for a coffee meeting and discuss my professional objectives. This turned out to be a fantastic opportunity to have an open and honest conversation about my aspirations and I left increasingly confident that the Copenhagen MBA was a great fit for my background and career objectives. Fatima also connected me with an MBA alumnus and let me know about the opportunity to sit in on a class during an upcoming trip to Copenhagen.

This experience provided personalized input, connected me to additional resources, and put a face to the program. Looking back, it was an invaluable meeting that played a pivotal role in my decision to pursue an MBA at CBS. As you consider your options for MBA programs, be sure to reach out to the admissions team to find out when they’ll be in your city or available for a phone conversation.

Having worked in financial services in New York City for several years, Kevin had always wanted to work abroad and chose the CBS MBA to launch his international career.
