Candidate:

Mr. NFL Team Analyst

About Me:

Part of the Strategy and Analytics team of a NFL franchise – my focus is on special projects (stadium renovations, gaming, app project management). Prior to the NFL, I worked in a small T2 consulting firm. Goal of MBA is to transition back into consulting in a Sports, Media, and Entertainment practice area to expand my projects to wider challenges.

Details:

Undergrad School: University of Florida

Undergrad Major: Statistics

GPA: 3.8

GMAT: 720

Age: 25,  Ethnicity: White

Extracurriculars: Sports Management Career Advising and Teaching at my alma mater - helping students get jobs within this competitive industry

Work History:

Title: Strategy Analyst

Industry: Sports Management

Company: NFL Team

Length of Employment: 1 yr, 7 mos

Title: Analyst

Industry: Consulting

Company: Boutique Firm

Length of Employment: 1 yr, 6 mos

Big Life Wins:

1) Led creation of our stadium’s first mobile ordering concessions app, one of the first in the NFL. 2) Directed COVID-19 organizational planning and commissioned innovative digital assets that will save sponsor revenue during this tough event-based climate. 3) Revamped our native free-to-play fantasy app game, resulting in doubled user engagement

Post MBA Goal:

After seeing how strategic innovation and leveraging technology (both digitally and at the stadium) can improve fan experiences, I want to widen my reach by joining a Sports, Media, and Entertainment practice area with a consulting firm. If I decide to move out of consulting, it will be back into sports or concert/entertainment in a higher capacity.

Make sure in your essays that you’re very clear why your ST goal is what it is as well as your LT goal (which I don’t see here). What made you leave consulting before and why do you want to go back? Connect the dots for ad-coms by explaining what skills you’ve since gained in your NFL role that you want to …
