Last month we reported that the University of Iowa’s Tippie College of Business was offering a $37,000 scholarship to the one MBA applicant that most creatively answers a question in the form of a single, 140-character tweet.
They’ve just announced the winner and his triumphant tweet. 33-year-old John Yates, a culture and language trainer for Berlitz, took it home with a haiku.
Here’s the question:
“What makes you an exceptional Tippie Full-Time MBA candidate and future MBA hire? Creativity Encouraged.”
And Yates’ answer:
“Globally minded (5)
Innovative and driven (7)
Tippie can sharpen (5)”
Do you think that deserves a $37,000 award? Tell us in the comments.
