Mr. Saudi Engineer

About Me:

I have an adventurer personality. I always take calculated risks that may potentially add so much value to my professional & personal life. I lived in Michigan for 4 years during my undergrad studies, an experience that sharpened my personality. Professionally, I worked as a project engineer at Aramco and I managed multiple multi-million projects.

I have a work gap of about a year and a half since December 2019. I am now pursuing a Master’s in renewable energy starting August 2021 and finishing July 2022.
I have one inquiry, which Post-MBA goal seems more appealing, switching to the high-tech industry or to the renewable industry?
Note: I applied to Ross in the 20-21 cycle but was rejected.


Undergrad School: Michigan State University

Undergrad Major: Electrical Engineer

GPA: 3.48

GRE: 312

Age: 28,  Ethnicity: White

Extracurriculars: I am a passionate reader. I spend a considerable amount of my free time reading about various topics that enhance my knowledge including, Anthropology, Self Development, Economics, Novels, Space Science and many others. I also used to participate in a local charity to support school students to overcome their academic challenges. My colleagues and friends describe me as an initiative person , I tend to initiate many non-professional initiatives that strengthen people's connections.

Work History:

Company: Fortune 500

Length of Employment: 4 yrs, 6 mos

Big Life Wins:

    Hi Mr. Saudi Engineer,
    My vote for your post-MBA goal is the renewable industry. It seems to me a better fit with your background. This is Debbie Choy from mbaMission. With a spike in application numbers last year, I saw many strong candidates get turned away from their dream schools. I encourage you to reapply this year. I think you have a lot of strengths in your profile – your work achievements at Aramco, solid GPA at Michigan State, and your active engagement in your community. As you pull your apps together, be sure to weave in these personal and professional stories to help AdCom understand who you are, what drives you, and what you’re passionate about. If you can articulate this compellingly in your essays, …
