Connie Chen

Connie is a finance and investment advisor with experience in financial services, venture capital and high-tech corporations… and a weakness for McDonald’s french fries.

Born and raised in Taiwan, Connie moved to the US to study at the Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan, where she learned to survive the Michigan winters. After earning her bachelor’s degree in business, she started her career in investment banking, advising companies on financings and M&A transactions. She then transitioned into venture capital, advising investors and entrepreneurs.

After getting her MBA from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business, she turned her focus back to M&A, now advising senior executives of high-tech companies. When she’s not making deals and consulting MBA candidates, she enjoys hiking, running and traveling… especially to Santorini, Greece, where the views and wine are amazing!

What do you like most about admissions consulting?

I love discovering the amazing stories of each individual - and then collaborating with him or her to share the best form of these stories with the business schools they're applying to.
