Mr. Smart Operations
I attended undergrad on a competitive scholarship (2.5% acceptance rate). From undergrad, I pursued a career in consulting and selected my offer to apply my technical degree with business application. Within consulting, I played in supply chain strategy, analytics, and smart factory operations. I have been recently promoted to consultant.
Undergrad School: North Carolina State University
Undergrad Major: Industrial Engineering
Age: 24, Ethnicity: White
Extracurriculars: Alumni Engagement Strategy Formulation (1-2 hrs/wk over two months) - Analyzed data from an alumni survey and used competitive benchmarking to recommend a list of initiatives for my undergraduate degree to pursue (currently scoping each option), Chair of Graduate School Preparedness (3-8 hrs/wk over 18 months) - Elected by peers in the workplace to lead and design activities that educate people on the overall graduate school application process and the firm's resources for application assistance and tuition reimbursement.
Company: Top Firm
Length of Employment: 2 yrs
Big Life Wins:
I closed a project analysis two weeks ahead of schedule because of efficient analysis and knowledge transfer to the client. My findings were presented to the CEO and helped sell part of a $15MM phase two project. I won the respect of a very difficult manager who directly led to four people leaving my firm over six months.
Post MBA Goal:
I want to return to operations consulting or join a smaller Smart Operations start-up. I want to use my MBA to round out my business knowledge by studying the areas of finance, entrepreneurship, and digital operations.
