Wharton MBA Essay 2 Example: Software Engineer with 4+ years of Experience and Tutoring/Music as extra-curricular
Wharton MBA Essay #2: Describe an impactful experience or accomplishment that is not reflected elsewhere in your application. How will you use what you learned through that experience to contribute to the Wharton community? (400 words)
For this essay, we look at a Fictitious profile – a candidate with 4+ years of experience working for a Technology Giant, leading the development of their most profitable product.
He was a Math tutor on the weekends and a Technical Consultant on weekdays.
The career path of this applicant was extraordinary.
Hailing from a village, the applicant was the first in his state to score 100% in Grade 12th Math exam. The natural curiosity to play with numbers didn’t lead him to Finance. Math was an extension of his highly evolved logical mind and a curiosity to find patterns. Music was an extension of his curiosity. He just didn’t repeat the same-old western classics.
