Mr. Low GPA Ex-MBB
I joined a US MBB out of undergrad, and was promoted to Manager in 3 years, and left for a mid-tier VC firm as an associate shortly after. I’m most excited about using the industry-specific knowledge from MBB and business-building knowledge from VC to scale fast-growing businesses. Although I am sure if my low GPA will auto ding me at top-choice schools.
