Target Schools: Kellogg, Tuck, Fuqua, Kenan-Flagler

Stats:
• Personal: 26 year old, Caucasian, Male
• GMAT: 760 - 49Q/46V/8IR/6 AWA
• Education: Bachelors Degree in Marketing from the University of Massachusetts - Amherst. 3.6 GPA.

Work Experience:
• 3 years of work for a (very) small medical software company. We are technically a subsidiary of a larger, more well-known nonprofit organization, but are our own for-profit company, and have some reputable hospitals as clients. I was the third full-time employee hired by the company, and I have since been involved in many aspects. I have handled primarily Account Management and Product Management, with other contributions in sales, marketing, training, pricing strategy, development, etc. I work side by side with the CEO and can show a clear link between my ideas and contributions and the end product that is used by hospital staff and patients alike. I can show progression of responsibilities. These are the areas I plan to accentuate, but in competing for open positions against candidates with backgrounds are larger, well-known firms and feeder companies, I'd really like some feedback on making the most of my experiences at a small company for my application. Unfortunately I do not directly manage anyone, but I do coordinate several projects with multiple different teams.
• Prior to my current job, I worked in the hospitality industry, serving as a front office manager in college and in Digital Marketing after graduation. These were great experiences for me personally, but probably won't come into play much in my application, except to maybe touch upon early management experience.

Extracurricular:
In college (4 years ago) I served as President of a 70-man fraternity, and was actively involved in causes working with and helping people with disabilities, including Best Buddies. More recently, I've been working with Junior Achievement to teach personal finance and career skills to public school students, and am a member of a local Jaycees (Junior Chamber) organization, but will only have been involved there for about six months at the time of my application.

MBA Goals:
• Short-Term Goal – Return to the health care industry in a strategy or product management role for a company that creates systems to improve the quality of care received by patients.
• Long-Term Goal – Either starting my own company, or serving as a CEO for a company that identifies gaps in health care delivery and inefficiencies in clinical settings, and creates products or systems to improve upon these weaknesses.

Thank you for any feedback you can offer, and I can answer any other questions that may help with the evaluation. I'm also open to hearing about other schools that may seem like good fits for this profile.

Hey Boston44

Thanks for getting in touch and apologies for the delay in response. So you've got the stats...760! 3.6! Nice work. I worry that you work for a "very small" company, but then I'm glad it's part of a larger, more well-known company. Make sure that's clear on your resume. I also like that you have Fuqua on your list. It's pretty perfect for your goals.

I recommend that you look into Wharton's Healthcare Management Program. It seems very well-aligned with your goals. (Although of course Wharton is always a reach school.) If you do decide to apply HCM, you can't apply blindly and need to really network with current students and the program to prove the fit.

If you've got 30 minutes, I recommend that you set up a free consultation. There are some specifics to discuss. Link in my profile!
