Mumbai, May 3: A Noida-based techie won himself an MBA seat valued at $36,400 in a US-based college after he participated in an 'International Tweet Competition' that was organised by the University of Iowa's Tippie School of Management (TSM).

The Rahul Rathi, an engineer by profession with Tech Mahindra won the seat after he answered a question that was: "What makes you an exceptional Tippie full-time MBA candidate and future MBA hire?"

"In an age where packaging is as imp as content, I present me in a manner that makes me stand out from the crowd," read Rahul's tweet.

The Tweet impressed the panel of judges consisting of TSM staff and students of the colleges. "He chose to keep it simple while communicating his points effectively. We appreciated that," said one judge.

Rathi is the sole international winner of the competition that was introduced in 2011.
