Mr. Asian Mexican Finance Hombre

About Me:

I am of Mexican nationality with Asian ethnicity. I was born and raised in Mexico, and worked for 8 years in a global Consumer electronic company famously known in the industry. I started as a Marketing Analyst, then transitioned to corporate finance with the CFO’s recommendation. I received my Bachelor’s in the US but I am trying to apply for Cornell, Tuck, and Tepper for class of 2024, round 2.

Big Life Wins:

– Drove covid emergency expense plan which reduced $5.5M and $6.0M yearly from 2019 to 2020, securing 0.5% of profit each year.
– Designed automated monthly profit analysis on spreadsheet, which company now use it as a primary reporting form for top management.
– While as a Marketing analyst, I hosted a whole Latin American customer forum with a 600K budget.

Post MBA Goal:

I want to try management consulting. I have been in Corporate finance, and I have a wide knowledge of risk analysis, however, I feel it prevents me from assessing business opportunities. Thus, I want to focus on academics specially in investment opportunity and strategy and combining them with my lifelong experience to join consulting (AT Kearny, hopefully).
