Achilleas Valozos (Master of Management, UBC Sauder School of Business / BSc in Mathematics, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki


When I decided to apply for the Master of Management at UBC Sauder School of Business I knew that choosing a team distinguished by its professionalism and strong work ethic to assist me with both the GMAT test and the application process would be the key factor that would help me achieve my goal.

True to the adage “I cannot teach anybody anything. I can only make them think”, quoted first by Socrates, Mrs. Dia Gerontoudi is an intelligent and inspiring teacher who led me to reshape my way of thinking, to see my goals and to be more confident about my abilities. Her approach to the Verbal section of the GMAT test is insightful and I truly believe that she is the best at what she does. Overall, Mrs. Gerontoudi was not only the best English teacher I ever had, but she was also the sort of person who would encourage me to work and become better.

Furthermore, Konstantinos Karalis played a significant role in my success in the Quantitative part of the GMAT exam. Even though I had a very strong mathematical background, I wouldn’t have managed to excel in my strategies without his classes when facing difficult numerical and data sufficiency questions.

I also had the chance to work closely with Mr. Kalandranis. I can surely state that he was a true mentor, my “sensei” who consulted me faultlessly on building my application (resume, composition letters) and getting myself ready for the final interview. Thanks to his guidance and remarkable experience, I accurately demonstrated my most impactful experiences, promoted my unique selling points, and translated my ideas into an impressive game plan, verbally and in writing. He is the coach someone needs when preparing for a demanding application.

I am grateful for the support I received throughout this amazing journey, and I would heartily recommend Dia Gerontoudi Prep Center to those who want to make the most out of their potential. Without a doubt, if you want to become the best, you must be mentored by the best.

Thank you for everything!
