Impact Investing MBA Essay


AVerma12
Hi All,

I am applying for MBA 2019 fall intake and I am working on application essay. Post-undergrad, I have been working in investing banking and investment firms for 4 years. Now post-MBA, I intend to pursue impact investing career, however, I am not sure whether it would easy to enter into impact investing post MBA given I have no direct PE experience (though I worked on two passive private investments). Also, how should I draft a story about impact investing in my MBA application, given there could be bunch of finance applicants who would be writing about impact investing in their story lines?

I would appreciate if someone already working in impact investing or pursuing MBA at a top b-school can help me on this. Thanks.

In terms of your concerns about not having impact investing experience, you could always do an internship in a firm that works on impact investments.
