Mr. Industry Switch

About Me:

Hello! I’m a consultant with a T2 Strategy firm, focused on growth and portfolio optimization within the Energy industry. I graduated from a well known Canadian school with a degree in Mechanical Engineering and held ~2 years of internship experience in various highly technical engineering roles at a large-cap oil company.


Undergrad School: Top 10 Canadian School (Bottom Half)

Undergrad Major: Mechanical Engineering

GPA: 3.95

GMAT: 760

Age: 25,  Ethnicity: Asian or Indian

Extracurriculars: Pro-bono weekend consultant (independent of my firm) for the Immigrant Services Foundation of a major Canadian city, Mentor for engineering students

Work History:

Title: Consultant

Industry: Consulting

Company: Top Firm

Length of Employment: 3 yrs

Big Life Wins:

Academically, I’ve been a decently high achiever, with a solid engineering GPA. Outside of school, I advise my local Immigrant Services Foundation on operational decisions. 2 years ago, I co-founded a small online clothing line that generated $20K in revenue. I don’t have any stake in this company any more, but I definitely learned a lot from it.

Post MBA Goal:

I’m not very passionate about the Energy industry anymore. I want to transition to a corporate strategy role at a Retail company or work a Bizops role in the tech industry. I think an MBA would be a great way to make this industry transition.


Target School: Wharton


Considering: Chicago Booth, Kellogg, MIT Sloan, Columbia

    Mr. Industry Switch – thanks for posting your profile. Susan Cera here from Stratus. Your outstanding stats will serve you well at Wharton and any of your other target schools. I like that you have dabbled in some entrepreneurial activities and are doing some pro bono consulting on the side.

    Your challenge will be to figure out how to leverage the skills and experience you have to date towards whatever you determine to be your post-MBA goal. Wharton welcomes students who are using an MBA to figure out which of two paths to take. As you consider your next steps, it will be important to be able to clearly explain your interest in retail corporate strategy or bizops in a tech firm. Perhaps there …
