Candidate:

Ms. Type-A CPG PM

About Me:

I graduated with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering before working as a software engineer in the consumer packaged goods industry for 3 years. During that time, I also worked part-time for an early-stage startup working on a digital marketplace. I later transitioned into a product manager role at the same CPG company.

Details:

Undergrad School: John Hopkins

Undergrad Major: Mechanical Engineering

GPA: 3.42

GMAT: 750

Age: 26,  Ethnicity: Asian or Indian

Extracurriculars:

Work History:

Title: Product Manager

Industry: CPG

Length of Employment: 1 yr

Title: Software Engineer

Industry: CPG

Company: Fortune 500

Length of Employment: 3 yrs

Big Life Wins:

Lots of cross-functional collaboration with designers, engineers, and product folks. Wore many hats during part-time startup experience, including creating a product roadmap and conducting customer discovery. Responsible for a user-facing iOS app as part of my current product management duties, and gained experience with customer acquisition marketing.

Post MBA Goal:

As an engineer, I know I have a technical advantage as a product manager, but feel that I am lacking in general business knowledge which I hope to gain with an MBA. Post-MBA, I’d be interested in working for an early-stage startup or being a FAANG PM.

  • Gatehouse Admissions | Odds Assessment: 20%

    Hi, it’s Rachel Nelson from Gatehouse Admissions. I like your background in mechanical engineering and you have a nice career trajectory which seems to leverage your skills and strengths. Wharton will like your quantitative aptitude! I think your Why MBA rationale makes sense and I would look for you to clarify your longer term goals and then walk through how your MBA and short term career plan will help you get there. Why early stage start up / FAANG? Help the Adcom understand which part of it is your passion – the tech, the consumer/ customer, the startup experience (what specifically) so it doesn’t just seem like you are moving onto the next obvious thing on your path.

    You have reasonably …

    Hi, it’s Nisha with mbaMission. You’ve got a really intriguing trajectory as a software engineer –>PM at a CPG company, and on top of that some valuable part-time startup experience. Your post-MBA goal of PM at a FAANG or at a startup is logical, and I think these companies would greatly value your experience – you’ll just want to make it clear in your business school applications what motivates you to pursue this goal based on your experiences and observations to date.

    These facets of your profile, along with your excellent academics, make you a viable candidate for a range of business schools. Given how competitive things have been over the past year (and the trend may continue into the next), I would …

    Ms. Type A CPG PM – Thanks for posting your profile. Susan Cera here from Stratus.

    Your strong work experience and solid GMAT serve as the basis of a great profile for Wharton. Absent any mention of extracurriculars, you come across as somewhat one dimensional which doesn’t necessarily play well with admissions. Wharton is very much a student driven culture. Your success and the success of your peers depends on you stepping up to drive initiatives like a tech trek to the west coast or a tech conference with a panel on design thinking. Hopefully you have been engaged in communities previously and just didn’t include that information here.

    Beyond that, take time to think about what impact you want to have as a product manager. Is …
