Mr. Army Engineer

About Me:

I’m currently an Army Captain and engineer at heart but am looking to jump into the finance or consulting industry – an MBA seems the best way to start. I plan to apply in 2021, enter in 2022, and graduate in 2024.

Big Life Wins:

I was awarded the Lincoln Laboratory Fellowship out of West Point, sending me to Cambridge, MA to conduct research for two years while I simultaneously pursued a Master’s in Chemical Engineering from MIT. Out of that work came two peer-reviewed publications that are pending submission to journals, and one invention disclosure processing at MIT.

Post MBA Goal:

After taking a Sloan elective in graduate school, Fundraising for Startups, the venture capital industry has held my focus. I realize VC is more of a final destination in one’s career, so I’d like to enter into the consulting industry immediately following an MBA and gain experience in organizational management and finance.

The two areas I think you will want to focus on to maximize these strengths are putting together …
