Mr. Techie Teacher

About Me:

I create data analysis tools used by internal stakeholders to make decisions about my company’s search advertising network. I am also passionate about educational/economic empowerment and want to do work that mixes my passions for technology and education. Hence I’m particularly interested in MBA/M. Ed. programs at Stanford, Wharton.

Extracurriculars: Computer Science Teaching Assistant - I've taught quiz sections and helped professors administer classes on topics from Algorithms to Probability and Android Programming as an undergraduate and graduate student. I will continue to teach high school level computer programming as a volunteer through TEALS, Volunteer at a non-profit that helps those impacted by incarceration get the resources they need to get college degrees. Responsibilities here range from the administrative (e.g. processing applications) to technical (e.g. writing programs that automate some of the more tedious parts of the Executive Director's job), Tax Prep Volunteer - Help file tax returns for low-income people with United Way as part of the IRS' VITA program.

Big Life Wins:

I was accepted to the University of Washington’s Computer Science program directly out of high school on a full-tuition scholarship.

Post MBA Goal:

In the medium term, I want to transition into consulting in a role that not only allows me to leverage my software experience but also makes an impact on the social sector (i.e. education). McKinsey does some work like that. Long term I see myself transitioning into technology/product management or being entrepreneurial at an ed-tech company.

  • mbaMission | Odds Assessment: 20%

    Hi, it’s Nisha with mbaMission. You have very strong academics and very meaningful passions in the area of education and empowerment.

You have excellent grades and strong test scores. I also like that you are very involved in your community. The potential area of weakness for me is your leadership ability.

I have the same question about your …

    Your target schools are aggressive with low acceptance rates (you gotta shoot your shot!), but I wish you the best of luck! I believe UVA Darden also has an MBA/M.Ed. too.
