Candidate:

Mr. Captain Mishra

About Me:

I have been working on ships as an officer since 2012 and became Captain at the age of 30 which is remarkably young for the rank. I have a very good academic record and have been involved in football and table tennis at a national level. I would like to work in sustainability consulting, especially in the transport and logistics sectors.

Details:

Undergrad School: IGNOU

Undergrad Major: Nautical Science

GPA: 4.0

GMAT: 760

Age: 30,  Ethnicity: Asian or Indian

Extracurriculars: Table tennis national level player, school football team captain and still playing, worked with an NGO during winter months to provide clothing and essentials to people.

Work History:

Title: Captain

Industry: Transportation

Company: Global

Length of Employment: 9 yrs, 1 mos

Big Life Wins:

Getting promoted to Captain at the age of 30 (Less than 0.5% manage to do so) was a major accomplishment, but even greater was executing my first voyage in command. Transiting pirate-infested waters, the Suez canal, Bosphorus strait, to get to the Black sea and then back to Vietnam to discharge 20 million $ worth of cargo without any loss or delays.

Post MBA Goal:

The transportation and logistics sector is poised for massive changes towards decarbonization and sustainability between now and 2050. I wish to transition into a consulting role in either the maritime or sustainability sector and contribute towards shaping the future of transport.

    The Male-Indian-Engineer (MIE) demographic is an extremely competitive demographic and Harvard typically has about 20 slots per class. Unless he has some life experience/stories more than what he's mentioned, not sure if he has any chance. In addition, he has pretty strong headwinds - Age, University in addition to the MIE demographic.
