Mr. Nonprofit Sustainability

About Me:

I’m an experienced researcher at a globally-renowned sustainability-focused research organization, with a current focus on land management & engaging indigenous communities for development. I graduated with the honor of the Most Outstanding Student at my faculty. I’m a closeted religious progressive from a region that whips LGBT people.


Undergrad School: Universitas Indonesia

Undergrad Major: Economics in Management

GPA: 3.56

GRE: 326

Age: 24,  Ethnicity: Asian or Indian

Extracurriculars: Competitive Debating, Health Nonprofit, Teaching English and Critical Thinking

Work History:

Title: Research Consultant

Industry: Nonprofit / B-Corp

Company: Major NGO/NPO

Length of Employment: 2 yrs

Title: Teaching & Research Assistant

Industry: Education

Company: Academia

Length of Employment: 1 yr, 2 mos

Big Life Wins:

I have successfully drafted a policy proposal for the national government that has been adopted and led to the creation of a unit tasked to deal with land mismanagement. I also represented my country twice, once in high school and once in university, in the world’s debate championships. Both times, I broke my country’s previous records.

Post MBA Goal:

My long-term goal is to develop my country’s, chronically poor, nonprofit infrastructure, to support local nonprofits. Immediately post-MBA, I hope to secure a job at companies such as Givewell, the Bridgespan Group, or the Gates Foundation in positions related to business development, to learn best practices in nonprofit infrastructure.

    Hi, it’s Nisha with mbaMission. You have a fascinating background and a strong connection to your community, on top of solid academics and being from a region that’s not heavily represented in MBA application pools. However, I’m not quite clear on why you need an MBA to accomplish the goals that you lay out, so you’ll want to make this clear on your application.

    Hello, it’s Lisa Cummings of Stratus. While I love your commitment to community, I suggest that you make a strong connection to why you need an MBA to land your dream job. Adcoms need to know that your goals are tied to the degree and their school. Think about the skills you will need to acquire to reach your dream job as it isn’t obvious that an MBA would be required from what you have listed. Assuming you can put together a strong narrative, your stats should fall in the range of Yale’s. Are you planning to apply in R2 or R3? With 3 years of work you will be on the light side so you will have to …
