Mr. Global Innovator

About Me:

Having grown up in a small rural town in Alaska, I always wondered what else was possible in the world. That curiosity led me down a path of technology and innovation, where I now work in Seattle within Accenture’s Management Consulting practice. In my role, I currently lead various global engagements for one of our key strategic client accounts.

Big Life Wins:

As a son of immigrants, I’ve been fortunate to have graduated as a first-generation American college student and move outside of Alaska to pursue my dreams. I’ve also had the privilege of starting a company to develop smart devices for global health. I was able to patent the technology and raise initial funding for the venture.

Post MBA Goal:

My aspirations after business school are to start another company or be a leader within a startup that is developing an innovative product to impact and improve our world. I also aspire to be a leader and give back to companies, organizations, and institutions by empowering other leaders and change-makers of the world.

The Experts Rate The Odds At: 35%

  • John A. Byrne, P&Q Founder & Editor-In-Chief | Odds Assessment: 20%

    My expert colleagues are much more positive about your chances at Stanford than I am. But it’s not because I don’t think you are a terrific candidate. As the son of immigrants, you graduated as a first-generation American college student with a near perfect GPA and a solid GMAT score of 720. If I were Kirsten Moss at the GSB, I would admit you in a heartbeat for all that you have accomplished. You didn’t grow up with a silver spoon tucked in your mouth and you weren’t surrounded by white collar professional role models who could counsel and guide you. You have a strong personal story based on the choices you’ve made and the person you’ve become. But here’s the rub: You are at …

  • The MBA Exchange Odds Assessment: 35%

    Dear Mr.Global Innovator: Emily here from The MBA Exchange. I loved reading about your background. As a first time visitor to Alaska this past summer, I can at least somewhat appreciate what it must have been like to grow up there. Beautiful but so different than the continental U.S. Top MBA programs will like your first generation college student story, your experience starting a company, your excellent undergrad record and your continued connection to your alma mater. The 720 is on the lower end for these top schools which may hold you back. I recommend your talk about your background in your essays, if you haven’t already, and make sure your goals are crisp and clear. As they …

    Hi, Mr. Global Innovator, this is Julie-Anne Heafey from mbaMission. Wow, I love your story and you remind me a lot of a wonderful client I worked with last year with a very similar background. I’m not seeing where the invitation to interview is showing in the above – but if you were invited, congratulations and good luck!! If that’s not correct and you’re still pre-application, since Stanford is so challenging for admission, expand your list to include more schools…especially Berkeley (and perhaps others) through the Consortium. I think you’d be an amazing fit there, and you could get a significant scholarship. I’ve had clients get full rides through the Consortium; it’s a fantastic program! I agree with another expert, …

    Hi, this is Melisa from Status Admissions. Based on your status it looks like you’ve received an invitation to interview – congrats! You are making strides along your MBA path! As you prepare for your interview, think through the stories that you want to make sure come across in answers to different potential questions. Based on what you have submitted here, it is tough to assess your goal post-MBA. Make sure that you have this thought through before your interview to a greater detail. And practice your answers – out loud! Ideally with someone who can give you feedback. When it comes to selling your story, practice helps you make sure you can cover all you want to in an interview. With the schools you …
