    Mr. Tech Innovator – thanks for posting your profile. Susan Cera here from Stratus. As a Fuqua alum who spent 10 years reading applications for Fuqua, I’m glad to share my thoughts.

    Your stats and years of work experience align nicely with Fuqua’s class profile but don’t have any ‘wow!’ factor. I think Fuqua will like your volunteer commitment to low income and underrepresented students. They will want to understand how you will build on that engagement if you join the Fuqua community. Perhaps through BLMBAO or getting engaged with a local non-profit through Fuqua on Board.

    Fuqua has strentgh in finance, tech and entrepreneurship so I think it is a good fit for you. Use the 25 Random Things essay to share who you are beyond …
