Saad Idrees

I'm studying an MBA at University of Rochester - Simon Business School (STEM designated), with a focus on consulting and marketing. In order to develop and implement sustainable and cutting-edge solutions to transform organizations and provide more value, I am eager to explore data-driven jobs encompassing strategy, operations, technology, and pricing.
After working in remote areas of oil and gas fields, I gained valuable experience with cutting-edge business strategies. I worked in really challenging situations while managing operations, overseeing complicated business on the ground, and establishing the groundwork for my business acumen. 'Leadership' and 'working under ambiguity' were two of the most important lessons I learned from my job.
I am a travel enthusiast. After exploring various national parks in Pakistan, some beautiful landscapes in the Middle East, and mesmerizing beaches of Korea, I am currently exploring the Americas and believe I am in love with Niagara Falls. I believe, I was born as a Pakistani but want to die as an Earthling.
