Can I list specific client organizations in my essays/resumes? Not really delving into specific work but they are all big name federal clients which would really help my application

As someone who consults for big name federal organizations, it won’t help and may even hurt your app. MBAs don’t want people to go into government since the ROI and prestige is minimal for them. Better to keep it vague and mask as commercial organizations (I.e. USPS=major package delivery provider, which could be UPS or Fedex). Also it shows a total lack of professionalism by listing confidential clients and you will be dinged for it.

You should be keeping it general enough so the person reading your app understands your line of work without Googling. They’re more focused on the impact you created and the transferable/goal-relevant/MBA-relevant skills rather than the specific nitty gritty of the project.

I wrote "major federal national security client" on my resume. Nobody asked me for more specifics in any of my five interviews. Ended up getting in to all five schools, including two of HSW.

I don't think the client names matter as much as what you did there specifically.

Appreciate the response, thank you!

D1 is wrong- federal is not seen as inferior and I highly recommend you don’t try to pretend it was commercial. I know plenty of former federal consultants going to M7s. As far as client, it depends. I was able to use one agency’s name as I got approval from the LCSP and it helped my story. For the others, I was generic, like “Federal Defense client”.

The business schools care more about what you’ve done, not who you’ve done it for.

I’ll definitely let you know!

This question might anger some, but not meant to be provoking. Does anyone else feel that half the jobs in tech (scrum master, project manager, product manager, etc.) are more hindering than helpful? I feel like productivity would sky rocket if we didn’t have 10+ hours a week added of admin work/agile ceremonies/status meetings, and you just let developers and analysts do their job. Why are we spending hours learning how to estimate story points (for example) rather than improving production?
