    Hi Mr. Infrastructure,
    This is Debbie Choy, Senior Consultant at mbaMission. Impressive background!

Coming from this non-traditional background can help you stand out from the crowd (which typically comes from banking and consulting).

Wharton is a pretty tough admit but I’d give you better …
