Mr. Real Estate Fund
I’ve been working as a real estate fund accountant for a little more than 2 years, and I’ve realized that I would like to transition to a role that gives me an opportunity to have a greater impact on an organization, and see what actually drives the financial statements. I want to leverage my MBA to switch careers and gain more general business knowledge to understand businesses in the broader sense.

Post MBA Goal:
I want to transition to management consulting as the most enjoyable aspects of my current job deal with helping the client determine the correct way to account for certain complex transactions or to make a process more efficient. Not only will management consulting give me the opportunity to do this in regards to other aspects of the business, but I will also be able to see the best practices used in different industries. My current job has given me transferable skills in that I have had to deal with a client on a day to day bases and determine what their needs our as well as manage expectations, which is an important skill to possess in client-facing industries. Also, my prior roles have instilled a core understanding on the financial side of the real estate funds, critical accounting processes, and internal controls and procedures.
