Hi there!

I would be very grateful if you can evaluate my profile and provide your opinion on what schools I should target.

WE: 3 years as Subcontract Specialist in the Aerospace and Defense industry. I coordinate with material planning, engineering, quality, and finance groups to ensure that materials and services are provided on a timely manner to support production. Negotiate pricing, create and analyze proposals. At the facility I work at were currently working on a project to manufacture, assemble and integrate operations for the Delta and Atlas, which are launch systems for NASA and the Department of Defense.

GMAT: 720

Undergrad: 3.5 GPA Business Administration, Nonrank school

Nationality: Hispanic-American

EC: I do grant writing for an agricultural non-profit. In addition, I use my business background to help provide knowledge for their business model to turn crops into a business. For example, a low income family can grow products and then turn it into salsa to then turn it over to sell for a profit. Also, I participate in other charity events, but mostly as a member: Cancer for relay, heart association, etc.

Post MBA: I want to pursue a MBA in Non-Profit (Social Entrepreneurship/Enterprise) so that I can start up my own Non-Profit or work in a managerial role full time. There are always positions up for hire, but many require some type of master or MBA degree. By going for my MBA this would no longer be an obstacle.

Target Schools: Yale


1. What other schools should I target besides Yale?
2. Any other information that could help make my profile stronger?

Thank you for your assistance in taking the time to read my profile it is highly appreciated!

Hi, Mbaschool12,

Thanks for your post. I went to Yale for my MBA, and I think that is a good target program for you. Other programs you could research are HBS, Haas, Kellogg, Ross, and Duke. These each have a opportunities to study in the nonprofit areas, but you should research further to see which is the best fit for you.

You will want to be able to articulate your short and long term career goals – what kind of non-profit would you want to start, what would your role be? How would you grow it? What would you accomplish? Since you are making a career switch, you will want to think about which skills and experiences are transferable and demonstrate those in your application. Think about why this career change makes sense for you. With just three years of work experience, you will want to highlight your leadership abilities and maturity. Since you want to go into nonprofit management, and because it is an important factor for admissions committees, you will want to highlight your community service experience. This is another area you can demonstrate transferable skills and leadership. It is also a great way for you to get across your character and passions. You could also enhance your career plan story with your involvement in community service.
