Mr. Mechanical Engineer W/ CFA Level 2

About Me:

I work for a Fortune 500 heavy engine manufacturer that supplies powertrains to a large majority of the US truck market, marine, mining and public transportation applications. I pursued a graduate certification in Hybrid Electric propulsion systems (coursework designed in collaboration with GM and Ford) along with my M.S. in Mechanical Engineering.

I would like some advice on the best way to integrate my CFA Level 2 into my application. I would like some feedback on whether the story of doing a master’s in science, 2 levels of CFA and then switching to an MBA makes as much sense to others as it does to me.

    Extremely few automotive/transportation hire/sponsor international your post-MBA would kinda hurt a bit. I know MIT Sloan doesn't care about post-MBA goals but you need a solid "why MBA" at least.
