Joey Manzinger

I am a former Square One success story and Chicago Booth graduate. In my pre-MBA career, I encountered somewhat of a “quarter-life crisis.” My partnership with Square One took me on an introspective journey where I learned how to leverage my strengths as an applicant. Their approach put me at ease, and it sparked a new-found interest in the MBA admissions process, which led me to pursue an Admissions Fellow role at Booth where I interviewed and evaluated applicants. In my Square One partnerships, I draw on my personal experience to generate the best possible results for my clients.

Before Booth, I worked as an auditor at Deloitte, serving clients in the manufacturing, real estate, and healthcare industries. Rarely did I experience a dull moment. I had the opportunity to meet with executives in Denmark, and I also counted frozen hotdogs in a warehouse in rural North Carolina. I received a BS in Accounting and Business Administration from Washington and Lee University and a Masters in Accounting from the University of Virginia McIntire School of Commerce.

At Booth, I was involved with the Private Equity Group and CREDIT Club (private credit, turnaround, restructuring). I served as a Co-Chair of the Golf Club and Hockey Club. I currently work as a Global Business Manager for a multinational corporation that specializes in IT, consulting, and business process services.

In my free time, I enjoy playing golf, traveling, exploring local restaurants, and making homemade bagels. I am a diehard Pittsburgh sports fan hoping for a Pittsburgh Pirates pennant.
