Hi there,

I was wondering if someone could help evaluate my profile and suggest any target schools? I'm looking at NYU part-time or potentially a full-time program.
I'm still trying to get a sense of where I stand. Would really appreciate it--thanks in advance!


- 28 / Asian/ Male

Stats
- 3.2 GPA Industrial Engineering which is honors at my school (Top 5 Engineering school, top 10 public school, number 1 ranked major in US)
- GPA showed improvement the last 2 years
- Certificate in Finance at same university with 3.8 GPA (5 courses)
- Shooting for a 700+ GMAT

Work
- 3 years operations experience at a top manufacturing company (ie GE, Caterpillar, etc) from a Fortune 75 company (completed rotational program)
- 2 years operations experience at a startup in NY that was acquired and was laid off (promoted once)
- Experience managing teams of over 60 employees
- 2 employment gaps (3 months and 5 months respectively) // the first was my decision to move to a new city, the other was due to getting laid off after company was acquired

Personal
- Currently involved in a 3 year volunteer program for high school students (requires 3-4 hour time commitment per month)

Thanks for sharing your profile. You have a solid profile that should have you competitive for Stern PTMBA. Your GPA is on the lower end but your GMAT is on the higher end. Bringing to life the value the PTMBA will have on your career will be key for you. I'm assuming you are looking to stay at your company post-MBA?

As of now, I'm currently in between jobs, but the idea is if I'm accepted into Stern PT, I would stay at my company.

Do you have any idea what I should consider as my target and stretch schools?

Thanks again!

One more question - What would your career goals be in a FT program, and then I should give you some reccs on programs

Since my background has mostly been in operations, my short-term goal is to develop business skills that I have not had the opportunity to be exposed to (accounting, finance, marketing, strategy, etc). Immediately after completing the program, I'd like to take what I learned from the program and progress into more cross functional responsibilities related to operations such as a BizOps or FinOps type role that has a strong mix of strategy and analytics. Long term, I would like to use my MBA become an expert operator at a start-up type consumer products company.

I would say to take a look at programs like UNC, Kelley, Cornell, Emory and Ross as potential target full-time options and for the reach options I would say Stern, Columbia, Fuqua, and Kellogg probably make the most sense for you
