Wharton Executive MBA [#permalink] New post 22 Dec 2009, 15:00
I am thinking about applying to Wharton exec MBA program. I am in IT consulting and want to make a move in to management consulting. I can do that since my employer has a management consulting practice. I have a 700+ GMAT and 13 years of work experience but my problem is my title. I don't have flashy title to show but I do manage project , people and technology on projects. is anyone in a similar situation ? Should I even bother applying to such a program ? Wharton is my top choice . (PS: I applied full time last year but was dinged)

I don't think titles mean much for WEMBA applicants. There are students in my class who have VP and MD titles but less management/leadership experience than others who have basic titles. What I think matters is what you actually do--and what differentiates you in your essays.

Your GMAT should work fine. Tell the story of your current role in your career goals and leadership essay and that will count much more than what your specific title is. WEMBA classes have a broad range of experience/leadership levels; don't spend too much time trying to guess specific, preconceived details about what adcom is looking for... spend it telling the story about your future career/leadership potential and what makes you unique.

go ahead and apply. although most of the students in my class are Director level and above, there are some who are managers and some with non traditional titles. i think the title isn't really that important either.

so just apply and do it.
