Re: Please help me evaluate my profile Tech Entrepreneur and do my essay Harvard application

The best variants for your profile are J. Mack Robinson College of Business and Wharton Business School. The latter has a Certified Investment Management Analyst course starting in January. Alternatively, a more convenient way to get a certification online is to join the virtual version of CIMA® Certification course with interactive assignments and daily review sessions. It is Wharton LIVE Programming.
