Profile Review - Haas, Notre Dame, MIT


Troy EMC
I worked 3.5 years in an oil & gas firm but in the past six months I've transitioned into doing independent consulting.

I want to do an MBA and focus on operations management / supply chain focusing on the energy sector.

My target schools are: Haas, Notre Dame, MIT. Aiming for R2

GMAT score: 740
Undergrad: 3.7 GPA / some extracurriculars

My main concern is how the schools will look at my work transition this year. It's a bit complicated but my firm restructured, and now I'm basically doing my old job for them just as an independent contractor. I'm actually making better money this way but there's very little room for growth.

Hi,
I also work in the O&G sector (Drilling Engineering). I have the exact same career goals like you although a much lesser GMAT and GPA. I am not sure which companies hire MBA's interested in working in Operations management with a focus on energy markets?
Any advice on that? Deloitte, PwC, EY etc?

I wouldn't be too concerned about how they see your work experience transition.

Just be honest with them.

Have you considered to some of the strong Texas schools? Something like Mays or McCombs might better suit your goals.

My dream school is MIT. I suppose I can consider other schools like Mays and McCombs. Thanks for the help.
