Hi HKUST,

Could you please evaluate my profile below,
GMAT 680 (Q:46 V:37)
B Tech in Computer Science with 74%
12th 85%
10th 82%

My professional background
Currently working with Samsung Electronics
I have more than 5 years of experience in Mobile domain.
Have contributed extensively to bring in differentiation to Samsung mobile applications and other features.
Worked closely with the Business analysts and user experience team for betterment of Samsung products.
Am promoted 3 times in last 4 years.
Currently as a Lead Engineer in Samsung's Android Mobile division I am managing a team of 5 people by mentoring them technically, where in by default for anyone to lead a team it takes about 7 to 8 years of exp in Samsung.
Youngest Java and Android Trainer in Samsung Electronics India with best overall feedback score of 4.2 / 5.

Having experienced what it takes to make a product like Samsung Galaxy Series (Galaxy S, S2 and S3 ) I would like to further enhance my knowledge towards Business intelligence and Data analytics.
My short term goal is to join a major OEM or Service Provider or a consulting firm as a Business Intelligence Analyst (Ex: Samsung / Google / ComScore etc)

Coming to extra curricular activities, I was placement coordinator during my College days from year 2005 to 2007 and more than 150 offers were made for a class of 60 during my tenure as Placement Coordinator.

It will be of great help if you can provide some inputs on where my profile stands. I am interested in applying to HKUST MBA 2013 Batch.

Thanks,
Arjun


Hi Arjun,

You can take a look at our latest class profile to get a feel of the students we admitted this year: http://mba.ust.hk/ftmba/studentlife/profile.htm

Basically, we look into these areas when we review a candidate's profile:

1. Academic performance: GMAT score and undergraduate performance
2. Work experience: work references, years of work experience, quality of work experience, e.g. any leadership roles taken and any international exposure
3. Soft skills e.g. communication, team work, leadership potential, cultural sensitivity, etc.
4. Career plan: whether our program can help you achieve your goals, how much you understand about your target job/industry, etc.

Our admissions committee looks at the above as a whole. As you can see, some of them cannot be evaluated just based on the facts above. How you present/differentiate yourself from others in the application essays are also very important. So it is difficult for us to tell you where you stands here. Hope you would understand.

Hello HKUST Team,

I am targeting the HKUST MBA program in 2013. By then, I would have 4 years of work experience in Manufacturing industry.
However, from my research, looks like 80% of the students have about 6 years of work experience. What is your advice on this? Do you think this factor will work against me?

Hi shar315,

While your work experience may be less than our average, we will still consider other areas in your application, e.g. the quality of your experience - whether there is any leadership or international exposure, your academic performance, career plan, work references, soft skills, etc. If your exposure in those 4 years are pretty good, then you don't need to worry too much about the number itself.

If you have good work exposure or career advancement within 4 years then it may also be a good thing since it shows that you have good potential. That said, it is always good to strengthen other areas in your profile, e.g. GMAT, essays, etc.

Hello,

I am very interested in HKUST's MBA program but it seems to me that the program is mostly related to financial sector in terms of applicants evaluation, program curriculum and post-MBA placement. I work in Marketing as a Brand Manager and would like to know if I am right to think that it will be quite challenging not only to be accepted to the program with no work experience in finance (GMAT 620), but also to study there if accepted.

Can you please also advise if HKUST has a placement history in the marketing sector?

Thank you!

Hi sudhir18n,

It is difficult to say how competitive you are since the admissions committee review your profile, including your essays, interview performance and goals for an MBA as a whole. Below are the key areas they look into. Hope they can give you more insights.

1. Academic performance: GMAT score and undergraduate performance - your GMAT score of 610 is at the lower range of our class and may be quite risky

2. Work experience: work references, years of work experience, quality of work experience, e.g. any leadership roles taken and any international exposure - your international experience will be an advantage in your application, and you may also be eligible for our Asians with International Exposure scholarship. Your leadership experience will be appreciated as well.

3. Soft skills e.g. communication, team work, leadership potential, cultural sensitivity, etc. - can only be evaluated in your work references, interview performance, essays, etc.

4. Career plan: whether our program can help you achieve your goals, how much you understand about your target job/industry, etc. - why you want to study an MBA is very important for us since we want to admit students who know how our program can help them achieve their career objectives

If there is any question, just let us know.

Hi Asia89,

First of all, we actually admit quite a diverse class in terms of their professional background. As you can see from our latest class profile below, only 17% of them work in accounting/finance-related roles before the MBA.

Intake 2012 class profile: http://mba.ust.hk/ftmba/studentlife/profile.htm

We believe students can learn a lot from the different perspectives of each other so we try not to include too many people with the same professional background in the class.

It is true that we have more electives in finance than the other tracks such as Marketing and Consulting. But the main reason is finance is a broad subject with different specializations while marketing is a very specific area already. Rest assured that you will still have plenty of marketing courses to choose from during the program, e.g. Brand Management, Pricing Strategy, Channel Management, Marketing in China, etc.

Around 60% of our curriculum are required courses in different areas of business from economics and finance to marketing, management and operations. So marketers won't have a particular difficult time studying the program compared with finance people since everybody will be required to study courses they are not familiar with. But you will have a harder time if your quantitative skills are not that good as some of the courses involve complex calculations.

Finance is an important industry in Hong Kong's economy and it recruits a lot of people not only into finance roles but others such as marketing, operations and IT, as well. We do have a number of graduates working in marketing after MBA, below are some of the companies they work at:

- Johnson & Johnson
- Standard Chartered
- eBay
- AXA
- IBM
- Dell
- DuPont
- FedEx
- Microsoft
- Kimberly Clark
- Emerson
- Nestle
- Google

One thing you should note is if you are coming from overseas and do not have a good understanding of Chinese, then it will be more challenging for you to get a marketing job in the Greater China region as most of them requires a good knowledge of the local market and channels.

If there is any question, just let us know.

I am very interested in applying to HKUST's MBA program and want to know how the GMAT is assessed as part of the application. I currently have a score of 650 which is within the GMAT range from what I researched. However, my quantitative percentile is significantly lower than my verbal percentile (30 percentiles lower). Will this weigh down my application or will my overall score be more heavily considered. My undergraduate grades in quantitative subjects such as Accounting, Economics, and Statistics are in the above average range (B+ and A). Will this help?

Thanks in advance for the advice and I look forward to applying this year.

Hi blueram,

Thank you for your interest in our program.

Other than the overall GMAT score, the adcom will also consider the subscores. If your quantitative percentile is much lower than the verbal one, they will have some concern as some of our courses require good quantitative skills. However, if you have good grades in your undergraduate quantitative subjects, it can help. You can mention this in the additional information section in the application form so that the adcom will be aware of this.

Any questions, just let me know.

Hi Towni,

Thanks for the advice. Aside from my undergraduate grades, my current position is in banking so it involves a lot of quantitative work. I am also a licensed Stock Broker (series 7), which entails a rigorous 6-hour math intensive exam. Hopefully, this will help my application and boost my quantitative credentials. I also plan on taking the GMAT again to improve my quantitative score but I am not sure if I will be able to before the Round 1 Deadline.

Thanks again.

Hi blueram,

Yes, if your job already involves a lot of quantitative work, then it will be much better.

If you plan to retake GMAT again, you can still try to submit the application by the first deadline and send us the score within 30 days after the deadline. You can note in the additional information section that you will improve your quantitative score in the second test, and also inform our admissions team about your intention at applymba@ust.hk so that we will be aware of it.

Hi Sir,

I read that for HKUST low gmat score can be compensated by good UG score. Can you please suggest if my following combination of gmat and UG score is good enough to apply ?

GMAT: 660 (Q 50, V 29)
UG (Engineering) : 8.4/10 (Rank 4th)

I would also like to ask that whether its only UG scores that is calculated under Academic Performance or if any certifications or marks in class X & XII or anything else is also counted under Academic Performance.

Snapshot of my Profile

Male, Indian, 27 Yrs
Exp: 5.5+ Yrs
Class X: 90%
Class XII : 80%
FRM (GARP) (Level I + Level II)
CFA Level I

Hi svnitparas,

When we say a higher GMAT score can help with a weaker undergraduate performance or vice versa, it is more in a relative term. FYR, the typical range of our current class is 610-730 so a score of 660 is around the middle. You can always apply with these scores but it is difficult for us to tell whether they are good enough to apply as academic performance is just one of the areas the adcom looks into. Your work experience, previous exposure, career plans, essays, work references, etc. will all be taken into account when we do the shortlisting. Even for those who have great academic performance, they can still be rejected if the other areas are not impressive.

For academic performance, we only looks at GMAT and your undergraduate performance (scores and the reputation of your university). You can also put in professional qualifications e.g. CFA or postgraduate degree for our reference.

If there is any question, just let us know.

Hi amritd,

Many consulting firms have a division which offers consulting services to financial services providers. Some of them such as Deloitte, Accenture, Monitor Group, ZS Associates, Value Partners Management and even McKinsey have been recruiting our graduates in recent years.

Hi OM,

Financial services companies recruit graduates from HKUST MBA into all kinds of positions. Purely finance roles are of course a major part of them. But our graduates are also recruited as business analysts, or into sales & accounts management, general management, marketing, operations, etc.

Financial institutions who have employed our graduates for business analyst positions include JP Morgan, HSBC, DBS, Bank of China, Merrill Lynch, Standard Chartered, etc.

Let me know if there is any other question.

Hi 700mirage,

Thanks for your interest in our program. I am afraid it is difficult for us to comment on your chances based on several facts since we take into consideration a range of criteria when we make the admissions decision, including your international exposure, leadership/teamwork experience, soft skills, work references, career aspiration and readiness, etc.

You can take a look at our typical class profile to get a feel of the students we admit: http://mba.ust.hk/ftmba/studentlife/profile.htm

Your GMAT of 620 is near the lower end of our typical GMAT range so it may be quite competitive for you to apply with that score unless you shine in other areas.

Any questions, just let us know.
