Vasilis Karkantzos (MBA, Harvard Business School (’18), McKinsey&Company, Business Analyst / Civil Eng. NTUA / Athens College (HAEF) / GMAT 760, TOEFL 117, GRE 170/161)

Success at last! Admitted into MBA Class of 2018 (September 2016 intake) – HARVARD Business School!

“During my preparation for an MBA in the USA, I worked closely with both Dia Gerontoudi and Thomas Kalandranis. For her part, Dia was much more than a great teacher. She was a real mentor! Her perfectly organized method (class courses and labs) enabled me to identify my weaknesses and improve on them, in order to excel at the GRE/GMAT and TOEFL exams. However, my greatest gain from working with Dia was her mentoring. Thanks to her, I managed to clarify my goals, plan my future, and develop the required skills to face potential challenges.

I also worked with Thomas Kalandranis during the preparation of my personal statement. He helped me organize my thoughts and created an accurate timeline for my life, to-date. Along with his guidance, we created a perfectly balanced document, tailored exactlty to the philosophy of HBS, which accurately reflected my achievements, goals and strengths, enabling me to present myself in the best possible way.

Although GMAT, GRE and TOEFL courses can be taught elsewhere, Dia Gerontoudi Prep Center offers that extra something, crucial to me and, I believe to all potential master’s students: INSPIRATION. I received true inspiration to study and excel at the exams, and, most importantly, to set goals -professional and academic-, to respect ethics, and to build a solid life plan.

I would wholeheartedly recommend Dia Gerontoudi Prep Center to all seeking motivation, as it has been a truly rewarding experience for me.”
