Mr. PE To Startup
I currently work at a large private equity firm (think KKR, Apollo, etc.) on a direct investing team and am responsible for underwriting corporate debt transactions. I’m only a few years out of college so I have limited work experience, but I’m hoping that my GMAT score and the quality of my work experience will help differentiate my application.

Post MBA Goal:
I would use my MBA to transition to a more entrepreneurial, tech-driven finance job. Having worked at a large investment firm, I’ve gotten exposure to large-scale deal processes, but am hoping that an MBA would provide me an opportunity to improve my leadership and management skills to ultimately join or create a startup.
