About Me:

I have worked my entire career in Silicon Valley for one of the FANGs. Working as a product marketing manager, I have been responsible for several product launches on a global scale.

    Ms. FANG Tech: Emily here, Master Consultant at the MBA Exchange. Congratulations on the LBS interview! But as a former Associate Director of Admissions at CBS, it doesn’t shock me that you were not admitted there as a 321 was likely not strong enough for them. In your LBS interview, you will need to tell a cohesive story about where you’ve been and how that ties to where you’re going-sometimes that trips up career changers. Make sure you can clearly tie your past to your future and show that your goals are realistic but require the skill set of an MBA. Your role as a consultant for an environmental start up will really help. Good luck!
