Mr. Army Engineer
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.
Undergrad School: United States Military Academy - West Point
Undergrad Major: Chemical Engineering
Age: 26, Ethnicity: White
Other Degree/Certification: M.S. Chemical Engineering
School Name: Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Extracurriculars: West Point Glee Club - Executive Officer, Community service through local church ministry (Fishes & Loaves, food pantries), Chemical Engineering research - West Point - Best Project Team 2016
Title: Platoon Leader
Industry: Government / Military
Length of Employment: 1 yr, 3 mos
Title: Research Scientist
Company: Lincoln Laboratory, Harvard University, Corning, GSK
Length of Employment: 1 yr, 10 mos
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.
