Meet Obinna

I want a coach who is an expert at interviewing.

At Tuck, Obinna served as a Tuck Admissions Associate (TAA), and received the 2019 award for completing the highest number of virtual and in-person admissions interviews. He is keenly familiar with the evaluation process and how one’s interview performance complements their written application – leading to a final admissions result. His TAA experience coupled with his background as a former teacher uniquely positions him to coach applicants to refine their stories and excel in their admissions interviews. Notably, Obinna has conducted nearly 400 actual and mock MBA admissions interviews, which gives him unparalleled expertise.

I want a coach who understands career paths and pivots.

Obinna also has a range of experiences working in the business sector. He is currently a Strategy & Operations Program Manager at Google. Prior to his current role, he was a Vice President at JP Morgan Chase (JPMC). While at JPMC, he held roles within the Consumer Banking, Home Lending, and (Credit) Card Services lines of businesses in Product Management, Product Strategy, and Product Marketing Strategy roles. He also worked as a Summer Associate for McKinsey & Company and as a Summer Analyst for Goldman Sachs. His diverse experiences in Technology, Financial Services, and Consulting allow him to coach clients on career goals and how to tell their stories (especially related to intended pivots) in a compelling way.

Prior to attending Tuck from 2017-2019, Obinna worked for five years on both the for-profit and not-for- profit sides of the education sector in New York City at Faith Christian Academy and iMentor. He holds a Bachelor of Arts with honors from Binghamton University (SUNY) and a Master of Management Studies (MMS) from Duke Fuqua.

He is a native of New York City, and spends his free time traveling, dining, listening to music/podcasts, mentoring, and improving his photography skills.
