Thank you for your profile post. From what I see here, you have a very good profile for most EMBA programs. You would be a little on the younger side in terms of experience for Booth and Kellogg, but certainly within the range to apply. I think your machine learning research papers will help, and I am personally interested in that as I have helped folks write about this a lot recently. At this point you want to focus on building the extra-curricular story and getting as much direct leadership at work as you can. Reach out if you want to discuss your profile. It is never too early to start!

Hi there,

Thanks for sharing your background. Whenever prospective students start with the notion with the desire to pursue an EMBA, I always like to vet that first to ensure the applicant knows what lies ahead. I'd love to learn more about what your goals are upon completing the program. Are you planning to stay with your firm upon graduation, or is the catalyst for an EMBA to switch firms or even your career? Many EMBA programs are intended to help their students rise in the ranks of their current firms. Schools like CBS have over half of their class under employer sponsorship while schools like Booth will encourage you to pursue a letter of support/sponsorship from your employer.

Fortunately, you're starting the process early, so you have some time to reflect. Should you have questions you'd like to discuss, we'd be happy to chat. Feel free to sign up for a free consultation below when you think the time is right. In the meantime, take a look at our free recourses and our thoughts on the different types of MBA programs out there. Best of luck!
