Candidate:

Mr. MBB Aspirant

About Me:

A very stereotypical Asian with a background in Finance and Law. I’ve always been quite good academically but as it comes without a surprise less so at soft skills such as leadership / communications / rapport. Born in China but immigrated to Australia at the age of 10 so I am a native speaker of both Mandarin and English.

Details:

Undergrad School: University of Sydney

Undergrad Major: Finance

GPA: 3.7

GMAT: 780

Age: 27,  Ethnicity: Asian or Indian

Extracurriculars: Cellist, Tennis

Work History:

Title: Group Strategy

Industry: Banking & Finance

Company: Top Firm

Length of Employment: 1 yr

Big Life Wins:

Took initiative and led a small team of 3 to develop a new data management / storage process at my previous work using combination of VBA / SQL (learnt on the job). Helped the alumni community from Tsinghua University in Sydney obtain sourcing to hand sanitisers during COVID19 when supply was scarce, with revenue of about ~$15k AUD.

Post MBA Goal:

Quite clear – after an MBA I’m looking to do 3-4 years at MBB before moving to China as an expat. During my MBB stint I’m looking to get exposure to Chinese clients and find an industry that I’m really passionate in. So I’m planning on using MBB as a springboard to look for my passion and pathway to China.

    You didn’t spend any time telling us about your playing the cello. That may seem inconsequential to you but, in fact, it could be the key to an invite at Harvard Business School. A lot of people will assume that because you bring a 780 GMAT score to the game, an admit is a done deal. That can’t be further from the truth. HBS rejects plenty of 750-plus GMAT applicants every single year. Just take a look at any of our ding reports on the site. What makes you a more compelling candidate is the right brain/left brain combination you obviously bring and that is where the cello comes in. Your international experience is also a key asset. Put this all together and your odds …
