Mr. Big 4 Accountant

About Me:

I’m a master’s student, graduating in May 2021. I’ve got an offer to work as an audit at one of the big four accounting firms. I have a terrible undergraduate GPA from a good university in Taiwan, but I have a 3.7 GPA at Baruch College (City University of New York). I am planning on applying for an MBA after working a few years at Big four.


Undergrad School: National Central University (Taiwan)

Undergrad Major: Finance

GPA: 2.7

GMAT: 700

Age: 25,  Ethnicity: Asian or Indian

Other Degree/Certification: Master of Science in Accountancy

School Name: Baruch College (CUNY)

Extracurriculars: Executive board member at Beta Alpha Psi at Baruch College, English workshop facilitator at National Central University in Taiwan, Graduate teaching assistant at Baruch College

Work History:

Title: Audit Intern

Industry: Accounting

Company: Top Firm

Length of Employment: 1 yr

Title: Mutual Fund Accountant

Industry: Banking & Finance

Company: Top Firm

Length of Employment: 1 yr

Big Life Wins:

Despite having a terrible GPA, I managed to get an internship at one of the biggest securities investment company in Taiwan. I performed well in my internship and got offered a position as a fund accountant after graduation. I managed to secure an internship in just 4 months after setting foot in the US, and that later turned into my job.

Post MBA Goal:

I hope to go into consulting or investment banking in NYC after earning my MBA. I also aim to be able to give back to my Taiwanese community.


Target School: NYU Stern

Status: Open

Considering: Duke Fuqua, Columbia, Cornell Johnson, Georgetown McDonough

    Hi, it’s Nisha with mbaMission. Props to you on 1. securing the Big 4 job and 2. thinking ahead about your MBA plans! While you have a few years to go, here are some things to focus on in the meantime: 1. Boosting your GMAT score – Stern’s and Columbia’s average is about 720, so the extra points will be helpful 2. Excelling at work – after getting your footing in the first year, see how you can mentor incoming associates and get involved in firmwide social/volunteer activities 3. Continue the track record of community engagement that you established in undergrad/masters – perhaps you can head up Baruch’s alumni association or get involved in an extracurricular or volunteer activity that is personally meaningful …
