Aerospace/Supply Chain Management--GMAT --710 [#permalink] New post 22 Oct 2013, 23:43
Hello,

I plan on matriculating in 2015 or 2016. I was dinged at Cornell and Stern this year so I have decided to wait another 2-3 years. I'd appreciate any input you could give me. Below is a brief synopsis of my profile.

Ethnicity- Indian Male living in Canada-- I will probably get my Canadian citizenship in 1-2 years

I majored in Finance at a small regional school in Canada. GPA -3.3 - -last two years(Dean's list) GPA 3.7

GMAT --710 (Q49, V39)

W/E
1 year work experience working at a family run Engineering consulting firm in India.
Marketing Internship at 3M Canada
I have 2.5 years experience in supply chain management as a Buyer at a Mid size (400-500 employees, 100mill in revenue)Aerospace manufacturing firm in Canada.
I currently plan on switching careers over to a more finance oriented role either in corporate finance or portfolio management

Other information:
-- Passed all three levels of the CFA on the first attempt
- extracurricular involvements --Toastmaster, numerous non leadership volunteer roles

Goals
My end goal is to work at at Aerospace company either in a corporate finance role or as a aerospace supply chain management consultant leveraging my background in finance. Alternatively I could manage an aerospace pension fund or equity research focusing on the aerospace industry. I'll fine tune this over the next few years as my career progresses. I will need to make my story sound believable.


Target Schools
These are the schools i'm targeting. In my opinion I'm a stretch at all schools except Oxford and UCLA because I have worked at very small companies and attended an unknown regional Canadian school. Can you recommend any other schools that you think I might have a decent shot at?

CBS, Booth, Kellogg, LBS, Oxford, UCLA - Anderson

Thanks

Hey there dude,
Good to hear from you! So I think you have a pretty good profile. And I don't know that you necessarily have to wait three whole years before applying (although if what you mean is that you want to wait until you get Canadian citizenship, then that makes sense). Anyhow, my suggestion is that since you know your goals, aim for schools that you know big aerospace firms recruit from. Lots of these schools (not surprisingly) have good tech programs:

Darden, McCombs, Tepper, Cornell, Georgia Tech, UCLA, USC, Ross, Urbana...

How's that for starters???

:)
