Jesse founded MBA Catalyst back in 2004, soon after finishing up his MBA at Georgetown. He also has a “day job” working in Corporate America with a focus on risk management, but, as he mentions in the interview, he plans to grow MBA Catalyst steadily over the next year or two in order to devote his full-time focus to it. MBA Catalyst focuses on MBA applicants from all backgrounds who might believe that their profiles are “on the bubble” and helps those folks to build applications around their areas of personal uniqueness. In particular, his firm has built up a great track record in helping candidates with who are applying to business schools in the Consortium for Graduate Study in Management during the past few years, and, as such, a large portion of his clientele tend to be from minority backgrounds.
My long-time members might notice something a little different about this entry as compared to my past ones. I usually don’t bring up the issue of race in my blog because it doesn’t come up in the topics about which I’m asked. Due to our backgrounds and some of the areas of focus for MBA Catalyst, the issues of being an underrepresented minority came up several times during our interview, which I thought added significantly to the discussion. It isn’t really a big deal, but I’m just mentioning it ahead of time so that it won’t be an “elephant in the room” kind of thing as people are watching this video.
