Sanda was a Firmsconsulting Emerging Fellow. Her interview may be found in Client Conversations.
In every intake of 7 clients / coach, we take in 1 candidate who does not have as strong credentials on paper and usually lives in a developing economy. They may have graduated from domestic schools, have poor access to MBB, weaker grades in a few cases and even weaker GMAT scores. If we believe candidates have outstanding potential but are limited by their circumstances, we will admit them to the program to help place them. This group of candidates has a ~75% placement rate and is among our best performing group. We do however adjust the program to cater to their unique skills gaps and their development takes place over a much longer preparation period. Some of the most outstanding Firmsconsulting alums belong in this group.
