Candidate:

Mr. Digital Marketing Analyst

About Me:

As a product analyst at a digital marketing firm, I have learned a lot of valuable skills. However, I would like to explore more of my passions. One of those is reading about the effects of macroeconomic trends on equity markets. I aim to rebrand, learn, and gain credibility with an MBA so that I can break into finance.

Details:

Undergrad School: University of Virginia

Undergrad Major: Economics and Statistics

GPA: 3.27

GMAT: 710

Age: 22,  Ethnicity: Asian or Indian

Other Degree/Certification: Basic Level Tax Certification

Extracurriculars: Virginia Consulting Group Project Leader, Unsung People Events Coordinator, International Relations Organization

Work History:

Title: Product Analyst

Industry: Digital Marketing

Company: Global

Length of Employment: , 7 mos

Big Life Wins:

My product team was adding two new features and deprecating one of our tools. I was given a short timeline to move paid search teams off our old feature onto the new tools. I helped eliminate an awkward transition phase by making teams understand the new tools, making the proper adjustments, and moving the teams before the deadline.

Post MBA Goal:

I aim to get an MBA in finance and work for a hedge fund that uses a global macro strategy. While I want to stay involved with ongoing analyses as my career matures, I would like to get more involved with the management side of the fund. I also seek to get involved with nonprofit groups focusing on improving access to and the quality of education.

  • mbaMission | Odds Assessment: 5%

    Hey there, Mr. Digital Marketing Analyst, this is Julie-Anne Heafey with mbaMission. I agree with the other experts that you’re not ready for Fuqua now, and agree with their main points of improving your candidacy: gaining more work experience, upping your GMAT to counteract a low GPA, and clarifying a path that makes sense with your story so far. Since you’re going to have some time, hopefully, before applying, here are some more things I’d suggest: (1) If you’ve got a passion for finance and investing, start taking finance classes now on the side…preferably ones that will grade you so you can also show some A’s in your area of interest when you apply. You can do this online at a top …

  • Stratus Admissions Counseling | Odds Assessment: 5%

    Mr. Digital Marketing Analyst – Susan Cera, Diretor of MBA Admissions, here. I spent ~10 years evaluating applications at Duke Fuqua. While you have the early foundations of a solid profile, with < 1 year of work experience you just are not competitive at this point in your career. I suggest you likely need 2-3 additional years of work experience to make the most of a top MBA program. During this time, look to develop additional skills and knowledge that will help you to clarify your post-MBA goals. Given that your GPA is on the lower end, you might want to retake the GMAT to bring in a higher score.
    All the best.

  • The MBA Exchange | Odds Assessment: 15%

    Mr. Digital Marketing Analyst: It’s Emily, Master Consultant at The MBA Exchange. It sounds like you’ve seen success in your Product Manager role and you have a solid foundation with your degree from UVA and GMAT. With only 7 months of work experience, you profile will look significantly weaker than others in the applicant pools at your target MBA programs. You’ve not yet been promoted or had the chance to work on multiple teams and projects to give you real depth of experience that these schools want so you can bring those experiences to the table in classroom discussions. I also think you need to present your goals post MBA as a story that makes sense with your past. …

    The good news here is that you have plenty of time to shape your journey to business school. Right now, as everyone else suggests, it's way too early to apply. The more work experience you have, the more you'll get from the MBA experience and the more you will be able to contribute in class discussions. Plus, saying you want to work for a hedge fund after seven months of experience in digital marketing is a real turnoff to admissions. You need to make the most of your current job, perhaps gain a promotion and then move into a finance job as a step closer to getting an MBA and successfully transitioning into a hedge fund job post-MBA.
