Candidate:

Mr. Mountaineer

About Me:

Community is important to me. I spent a summer teaching math and English to Tanzanian primary school students. I sat on the board of a non-profit that raised money for a water tower at an orphanage in Arusha. I started a 501(C) for a friend that lost their only child to SIDS. In my free time, you can find me doing extreme mountaineering.

Big Life Wins:

I implemented a major lean initiative at a food manufacturing facility that netted 1.7MM in efficiency improvements. Awarded passionate leader of the year. I hired a homeless man I met outside of a 7-11, and in three years coached him through 2 promotions. A few years later, and he bought his first house. I know how business can create mobility.

Post MBA Goal:

I want to spend some time in a top consultancy firm before pivoting to corporate supply chain strategy. After a few decades, I want to cap off my career earning my Phd in Economics, and spend my retirement in economic policy, hopefully being able to take all of my lessons learned to help developing economies.

    Clearly, you are a serious mountain climber because you’ve chosen to ascent the Annapurna of the business school world: Stanford GSB which routinely rejects 94% of the people who apply there. I will give you this: Mr. Mountaineer, you have one of the best X factor stories I have ever heard: Your decision to hire a homeless man you met outside of a 7-11, and in three years coached him through two promotions and the purchase of his own home. Wow. I would admit you to Stanford on that story along with your achievements at work and your solid 327 GRE score, three points shy of the class average at the GSB. But alas, this will be a highly challenging climb because there are two …
