Thanks for this chat! Three questions:

1) Working on my own org (a non-profit tech company focused on financial inclusion for the bottom billion), early stage, with a co-founder. Plan is to shift to board/advisory role during MBA then return to my organization. So, official short term goal is to return to the company I am building. How do ad coms respond to that? Is it perceived with skepticism/negatively, especially given that the org is early stage and success is far from guaranteed?

2) Is it wise to outline a plan B in the ST goals in such a situation? Or would that be viewed as unfocused/confused? E.g. Join a fintech company focused on providing products/services for unbanked in emerging markets in a product strategy or gen management role (several companies in the space are closely related to my work and experience and my genuine fallback if I need to return to the job market)?

3) For LT goals, how abstract do they need to be and how differentiated do they need to be from short-term goals, especially for older candidates (I am 32)? Given my current focus, if my org works out, I honestly see myself working on growing it for the next 10+ years; my co-founder and I are in it for the long-haul. But can one really say that in LT goals (ST goal: return to my company; LT goal: ideally build my company into one of the largest non-profits focused on financial inclusion)?

I think that your plan is fine, your goal should be something where it's achieveable but also you need an MBA in order to achieve it. So you will need to articulate specifically what you're lacking and how the MBA is going to help you take things to the next level. And on top of that speak to how that particular school is best suited to help you do that

And I think like in this case you might think about your long-term goal in the sense of a 10 year business plan. What is the business plan farther out?

And also the most successful candidates speak to how they are going to help those Beyond themselves. Is there some type of Legacy that you would like to leave?
