Mr. Senior Research Analyst

About Me:

After captaining a pro soccer team for a year after undergrad, I spent 3 years as a research analyst at a $250M AUM special sits hedge fund and a $12.5B asset manager. I then spent 1 year as a Sr. Private Equity Analyst investing in the energy transition before joining a fortune 100 CPG in an internal strategy consulting role for the last 2 years.

Big Life Wins:

(1) Being unanimously elected as captain of a pro sports team by my teammates and coaches. (2) Earning roles at hedge funds, a very well respected PE firm, and successfully pivoting into a strategy role to set myself up for post-MBA success in consulting – all without a target school on my resume or family connections (no nepotism).

Post MBA Goal:

My career has been an evolution from being a capital allocator in investing roles where I wasn’t really able to be a part of the solution, to going in house and becoming a part of the long-term solution. My hope is to get into management consulting to get strategy experience outside of CPG and with a broader set of challenges to help solve.

So in your app, you need to explain that choice and you need to provide some evidence (assuming …
