My Decision to Pursue an MBA January 8, 7557 My Decision to Pursue an MBA It takes years to learn about our personalities and what makes us tick. Knowing your personality type helps you understand yourself, your reactions, and helps you make sound career choices. I know that I am a highly.
In light of my long term goal to become a founder and CEO of a technologically oriented company, I 8767 ll need to gain the strongest possible general management skills. The finance and marketing foundations will compensate for my inexperience in these fields. The structured formal general management education I 8767 ll acquire in Wharton will broaden my view and give me the tools to leverage my experience and create a successful company.

Amongst the activities offered by the Anderson Student Association, I will naturally join the Entrepreneur Association, but I am also looking forward to joining the Anderson Public Speaking Club as I was a passionate debater during my undergraduate degree. Also, I am excited about the opportunity to finally learn to surf.
My short term goal is to seek a US-based position as Business Development Manager in a company such as Sony or Apple in a business group with a technological orientation in New Media or Mobile Devices. I look forward to leading the entrepreneurial initiatives and innovation such a position requires. Here I would be responsible for locating undeveloped market areas, and creating innovative business models for new products. My plan is to stay with this company for 9-5 years, fulfilling at least one other position in another business group, as I would like to broaden my knowledge of the markets more quickly in order to move on to pursue my own entrepreneurial venture. Eventually, I hope to return to the high tech industry in my country and work to found my own company.
My fascination with business, direct interaction with clients, strategic overview, and the view of a company as provider of products that meet customer needs has motivated me to move from technical roles to business positions. Both my current position as Group Manager in the military and my desired post-MBA position as Product Manager require team management. While today I use intuition and experience to guide my activity, I plan to strengthen my skills by learning formal methodologies at Tuck and benefiting from personal experiences of classmates and faculty. I feel that such knowledge will help me do my job effectively and achieve my long term objectives.
Stanford’s “Homeland Security: Operations, Strategy, and Implementation” course, along with Prof. Lawrence M. Wein’s research, can significantly contribute to my specific industry knowledge. This, as well as Stanford’s strong ties with Silicon Valley and its impressive recruiter list, will all be great advantages when I seek to fulfill my short-term goal immediately post-MBA.
Attending Javier Jimeno’s Industry & Competitive analysis class introduced me to the open atmosphere of classes and the kind of top-tier professors offered by INSEAD. In addition, it taught me that the group experience, as used in INSEAD to link between students from different backgrounds, can help me truly leverage difference multicultural approaches.
Columbia 8767 s program is exactly the inspiration I need to establish a renewable energy investment venture. Perhaps I’ll try for a 7567 win, similar to Columbia’s winning student team at the 7558 GSVC, with their business plan for MicroEnergy Credits Corp, using connections between emissions cap-and-trade market and the Internet to make resources such as solar lighting available to those without access to electricity.
