Candidate:

Mr. Army Warrant Officer

About Me:

I will be retiring from the Army in 2025, at the age of 40. I am trying my hand into getting accepted to Duke or Darden MBA programs. Just a heads up, I’m not a military academy grad. I joined as an enlisted man and got my degree in Business Administration from University of Louisville, on-line. Switched over as an Intelligence Warrant Officer.

Details:

Undergrad School: University of Lousville

Undergrad Major: BS Business Administration

GPA: 3.3

GMAT: 660

Age: 35,  Ethnicity: Asian or Indian

Extracurriculars:

Work History:

Title: Army Warrant Officer

Industry: Government / Military

Company: Army

Length of Employment: 10 yrs

Big Life Wins:

I oversaw the establishment of the Signals Intelligence infrastructure in Iraq, and managed an intelligence section comprising of 14 military and government agency personnel across four field sites.

Post MBA Goal:

As an enlisted Soldier, I have witnessed numerous accounts of personnel mismanagement. When I crossed over as an officer, it was only then that I was able to implement ways to fix internal mismanagement. The military is ran like a business. I want to use the influences that are associated with a top 20 MBA program to restructure Army management.

Schools:

Target School: Duke Fuqua

Status: Open

Considering: Darden

    Hi Mr. Army Warrant Officer, this is Kate Richardson with mbaMission. I have seen several military candidates (those who were and were not academy grads) go on to be accepted at Darden and Fuqua, so I think those are great programs to be considering.

I also have no doubt you could gain a lot from an MBA program to help restructure and optimize management practices. Your higher amount of experience/age is a slight concern, though I’ve seen military applicants at a similar level do fine as long as they show realistic expectations for the MBA and clear learning goals. Your GMAT also …

    Hi Mr. Army Warrant Officer, Melisa here from Stratus Admissions. First, thank you for your service. With your goal of retiring in 2025, I think that a part time or executive program would allow you to gain the knowledge of which you are speaking from a Top 20 program while continuing to work on opportunities to restructure military management. Clients of mine with similar years of experience have chosen part time or executive programs for a couple reasons: the ability to work and study at the same time, sitting in class with those of similar work experience, less stringent testing requirements with the increase in work experience. The key for these programs is that you must be fully employed. And I have found that executive …
