About Ed

Hello! My name is Ed Zhang and I am a small business entrepreneur. I have prior experience in Private Equity investing (4 years) and management consulting (3 years). I have an MBA from The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, and a BBA from the McCombs School at the University of Texas. I would love to use my experience to help you in any of the following ways: - MBA Prep - MBA Essay Review - PE Interview Prep - Consulting Interview Prep - Consulting to PE Transition Prep - Post MBA Recruiting Prep

Why do I coach?

Mentorship has been an incredibly powerful benefit for me during my career. Having peers and coaches throughout my educational and professional experience is the biggest factor for how I got to where I am today. Since it's been such a powerful tool for me, I am looking now to turn back and pay it forward to others who may need guidance walking along their own paths. Mentorship and development is something that I am passionate about and seek to bring to my life every day, whether at work or with life.
