Profile Review


Hi all,

I am going to apply to MBAs at UCLA, USC, NYU, Columbia. My profile:

- 31 years old italian 
- 2 years of Investment banking at bulge bracket in London (think GS, MS, JPM) in Media&Telco M&A
- 5 years of Private Equity in $3bn shop investing across Europe and North america. Main sector focus Media&Telco
- GMAT 640
- Msc Finance in top European University with distinction, Bsc in Economics at same university. Exchange programs in UCSB and Thailand
- extra curricular: volunteered as basketball coach in development country, executive produced a film accepted at tier 1 international film festival

My main career goal is transition from finance/investing in Media to industry roles in Media&Entertainment where you are "closer" to the operations (strategy, corporate/business dev, start-up roles, and keen to explore others), that's the main reason for my specific focus on NY and LA. 

What do you think are my chances to be accepted at those school?

Thank you

Californians know that EPs are no really involved in making the film :)

The GMAT looks like the problem, unless you are looking at the USC IBEAR MBA.
