35 year Male/12 experience in IT/GMAT 640 PART-TIME MBA [#permalink] New post 10 Feb 2013, 08:08
Hi Stacy,

Thanks for great service.

I would appreciate if you can evaluate my profile and guide me.

I have B.E (State University) and M.Tech in Engineering (IIT - one of the top Indian school) .
Academics are good
BE -> top 5 out of 90 members of class
ME -> GPA 9.33/10
Experience ->
1 year experience in India as Sr. Software Engineer
11 years experience in USA as Technical Lead leading 5-6 people, Architect and Sr Business Analyst. At present I am working as Sr Busingess analyst in Investment banking.

Unfortunately my extracurricular activities are almost nil. (Just member of the sports club for 4 years and playing Racquet Ball and Ping pong ).

I wrote GMAT 4 times.. 610,610,640, and 610 ..Highest score I got was 640. My Quant skills are very good, but verbal is killing me. I got 50/51 in Quant.
I am aiming for good Part-time MBA schools in USA. (NY Stern, Booth, Tepper, etc.). I am fine with either MBA finance/Quant or MBA Information Technology.

I see that my age (35) and extracurricular activities are negative points for me.
Could you please suggest whether I have any chances in Stern, Booth and Tepper. If not, can you suggest other good schools.


Do you suggest part-time MBA right now? or executive MBA after couple of years?.
If I don't do part-time MBA right now, I may consider to do Executive MBA after 2-3 years. If executive MBA is good choice for me, please suggest how to improve my profile in couple of years. I would like to get into managerial position and do the certification in PMP and also complete CFA.

I appreciate your resonse and valuable suggestions.

Regards,
Sachin

Hi sachint,

Thanks for posting. Regarding your first question (whether a part-time or Executive MBA), it depends on what your goals are for the program. Can you write to me what you are looking for from a business school program?

For your application, I recommend you read this case study of a person with an engineering background who was accepted into a top MBA program. It should provide some insight into ways you can differentiate your application: http://www.stacyblackman.com/comprehens ... ies/case2/

We also have free school specific advice for the schools you listed here:

Stern: http://www.stacyblackman.com/business-s ... nyu-stern/
Booth: http://www.stacyblackman.com/business-s ... ago-booth/
Tepper: http://www.stacyblackman.com/business-s ... on-tepper/

If you'd like, we also provide free 30 minute phone consultations here: http://www.stacyblackman.com/contact/

Cheers,

Conrad and the Stacy Blackman Team
