As pharmaceutical, biotech, and medical device companies have faced major challenges such as pricing pressures they have looked to operations to maximize profits. Therefore upon graduation I would like to work as a consultant for a top pharmaceutical consulting firm such as ZS Associates, Mckinsey, or Deloitte and focus on operations. Following 4-5 years in consulting, I would like to enter a large pharmaceutical company as a senior manager in their operations department.
R2: Sloan, Columbia, Yale
As noted in the header I am the first in my family to go to college and grew up in a poor farming community. This is what I am going to write about in my essays.
Also have a misdemeanor for running from a house party in college 4 years ago.
Any suggestions to add/remove schools or how to better round out my candidacy would be greatly appreciated!!
