Julia Poltorak is our March 2004 Student of the Month

She scored a 700 on the GMAT this winter!!!



The beginning of each month is usually one of the toughest moments for us, as we scramble to choose our Student of the Month from a pool of incredibly talented and---each in his own way---unique young men and women. In that respect, March was no exception. Our decision to choose Julia was based not solely on her quite remarkable GMAT score, but also on her career achievements, which clearly demonstrate the ambitions and numerous talents she harbors.

Julia has a Ph.D. in sociology earned in 1996 at the University of Pennsylvania. Since then, she has heavily invested herself in the consulting business with such world-class names as PriceWaterhouseCoopers, where she led the Organization and Change Practice in such industries as oil, gas, banking and insurance.

Her interest shifted after a while towards the media industry, and she joined FourMedia, a Russian media holding that operates several TV and radio stations in the country. Julia says she wants to take time in the near future to "patch some holes" in her business education at one of the top b-schools and "move straight into a large media corporations."

We have no doubt Julia will more than fulfill these educational and career goals thanks to her intelligence, hard work and resilience. With a GMAT scored of 700 after preparing here with Pericles, it is hard to think of a better start towards conquering these new heights Julia has set for herself.

It is the more remarkable that Julia has been able to accomplish so much despite the fact that she is a mother and has to find time for her family. who ever said for a woman a successful career was incompatible with family? Julia is pictured here with her adorable kid.
