Angie Sensei

Class of 2016 | Wisconsin School of Business | Center for Brand and Product Management


Are you a career switcher that’s overwhelmed and confused about the MBA Admission process? Are you an older applicant whose afraid her age will harm your chance at admissions? Does the cost of an MBA freak you out? That was me three years ago. I spent my first career working in the nonprofit and govt. sectors and decided that it was time for me to take the leap and make a sustainable impact through business. My network was filled with friends who had Master’s in everything but business and I ended up turning to a consultant to help guide me through the process. I hope my profile, videos and essays will help you brainstorm your own ideas. Don’t hesitate to reach out with your questions! I’d love to help.

Are you a non-native English speaker? Are you interested in applying for an MBA in the United States? Have you received most of your education outside of the United States? Is it your first time hearing about standardized tests?  Is this your first time writing admissions essays? That was me three years ago. I am from Senegal, a native French speaker and had a Masters Degree in Human Resources before moving to the U.S.  five years ago. I spent my career working in the private and nonprofit sectors in the United States and in Senegal. I really hope that you can learn from my experiences, lessons learned and best practices.  I love helping others with similar obstacles!
