Somu sir,

After reading some of the earlier posts on this thread (not sure if you did), I guess we both know what isn't working for you here.

The Asian schools, and specially the two in India are flooded with similar profiles. Your best bet would be to go beyond the ERP Tech part and talk about the Transfer Pricing knowledge you've gained. Transfer Pricing can be a very complex subject and there are consultants who have made a career focussing purely on this 1 area.

Link that to your post-MBA goal that might somehow be linked to the non-technical wisdom you've gained in the earlier roles.

Then you've basically got a story that few others will be talking about.

Indian MBA Applicants more likely to be rejected from top b-schools

You thought it was fair game and your chances of getting into a top MBA program had nothing to do with your nationality? Not true, says John Byrne, former executive editor of BusinessWeek and founder of Poets & Quants.

According to him the rejection rates for Indian candidates are ‘dramatically higher’ than any other nationality. An Indian applicant is 3 to 5 times less likely to get an offer compared to domestic candidates from the US.

In fact, European and Latin American candidates would also fare better than Indians. What makes the P&Q survey results extremely credible is the fact that the data has been supplied officially by B-schools to Bloomberg BusinessWeek. Some schools that feature … Read entire article »

Business Plan FAQ: What is it and how to create one?

When you start your MBA program, you’ll probably have to create (or review or study) a business plan. It might be a mandatory exercise because it’s part of a graded assignment. Or it might be part of a MBA business plan competition sponsored by your friendly neighbourhood consulting firm.

If you think you’ll never have to create one for yourself, it may still be a good idea to get your hands dirty right now, even before you step into a b-school. Why should you start working on a business plan now? … Read entire article »

For the ones you've already applied, stop worrying about your chances. It'll just make you take more antacids while you wait for a response. For the others, Oxford, Cambridge have a strong brand recognition in India. Though the others on your list are good schools within their region, don't assume that their brands would be automatically recognised by all employers.

You may have to educate them and explain that they aren't just some foreign school that kids of rich parents attend. They are selective programs where deman outstrips the supply yada yada...Extend that spiel.

The traditional MBA recruiters are more aware of international MBA brands. A huge majority (specially in conventional industries) have no clue about them. They'd be more aware of local brands (even tier 2/3).

But that doesn't mean you lower your standards just to make them happy. You'd be spending a lot of money on this. So ensure that you are doing it for yourself first (build new skills, a bigger network, a new perspective that you can bring to your next role) and then for your employers.

High paying Non MBA jobs in the glamour world

Image

Today’s guest writer is Tinu Menachery, a model (yup, that’s her photo) and a content writer. She’s comes from a world that most readers of the MBA Crystal Ball blog (chasing typical MBA jobs and careers like consulting and investment banking) will probably never experience. And that’s exactly the reason why we requested Tinu to try and get at least a few folks interested in a career in the glamour world.

These ‘jobs’ (almost sounds demeaning to use that word in this industry) can earn you big bucks (monthly salaries are so passé). Plus life indeed can be one big party, rather than something you’d save for alternate weekends when your boss doesn’t overload you with official work.

Tinu started her modeling career with Gladrags in 2008 (‘reached the top 15 without falling off the stage‘ she adds) and was 2nd runner up of...Read More

MBA Crystal Ball closing its doors for Round 2 Applications

Many of you might know that we are a very small team and we have been focussing on working only with a small set of candidates. And the good news that has been trickling in from guys who've got into top-notch schools from INSEAD to Chicago (and of course, ISB) tells us we are doing something right with our operational model and we shouldn't rock the boat.

For each admissions season and each round we stop taking new folks when we reach peak capacity. For Round 2, it's time for us to announce that we are no longer accepting new clients who are targetting deadlines in Jan.

On a very selective basis we may offer our shorter scope packages (like Turbocharge) to profiles that we really like.

For those who've been following us for a while and planning to apply in the next season, please contact us early in 2011, specially if you have the bigger scope packages (e.g. GMAT + MBA MAP + 5 schools) on your mind.

Executive MBA: How I got into Columbia with a 570 GMAT score

No, it’s not another article on careers in the glamour industry. If you think all our guest writers are hot and glamorous, it’s merely a coincidence. Or maybe it’s the MBA Crystal Ball platform. Or maybe it’s Maybelline.

Preeti Wadekar has managed to crack into an insanely competitive Ivy League school despite challenges (like a low GMAT score). What was her strategy for Columbia? What can you learn from Warren Buffett when it comes to B-school applications? Why Munni and Sheila couldn’t get into a B-school? She explains all this and more...read more

Hi MBA Crystal Ball,


My profile is as follows

Education

Top 75 US School (USNews Overall ranking) : Masters in Computer Science GPA 3.9
Bachelors in India : First class with Distinction (non-IIT)

GMAT : 720

Work Experience : 4+ years as of this email in a start up company in USA partnering with big companies. I have grown along with the company in responsibility and position/role. I work on the data analytics side of the business, providing data for profitability/pricing/accounting and big partner companies. Solely responsible for the accuracy and consistency of the data.

Second job--I voluntarily took the responsibility. After my 40 hours , I work on special projects where I take the lead in finding ways of increasing revenue in the smaller areas of the business. I have done 2 projects and was successful in improving it. A McCombs alumni guides me in this process, who is part of the management.

Wish List of Schools
1) Booth
2) Wharton
3) Darden
4) Duke
5) Columbia
6) Stanford
7) Mc Combs
8) Kellogg


Could you tell me if I am aiming too high and which fall within my reach.

Thanks,
Suri

Hi Suri,

I'm not sure what you mean by a second job. The way you've described it gives me the impression that you are working in the same company but focussing on areas that you aren't responsible for. Is that correct or are you working for another company (or companies)?

Either ways, what you are doing (work-wise) is good. Just ensure that you make the segregation clear in your essays and highlight what each of those roles has helped you achieve.

Quote:

It would have been a good mix if you were looking to spread these schools out across Round 1 and Round 2. If you haven't already applied to some of these in the previous round, I'd say it won't hurt to go a little more conservative with the choice and include other schools where you'd have a better chance in R2.

GMAT AWA essay tips

While preparing for the GMAT, most of the candidates start planning in advance for a high GMAT score in the Quantitative and Verbal sections. The score out of 800 for these two sections seems to be the only aspect that matters. The AWA section which has a score on the scale of 0-6 is totally off the radar.

One reason for that might be because the AWA score doesn’t get too much attention on B-school websites. Almost all of the top schools talk about their average GMAT scores, but there’s usually no reference to the AWA score. So many applicants assume, if it does not figure anywhere on the school site, it may be unimportant...Read More

Great variety there, buddy. In your startup experience, did you get involved in business development activities as well, or was it mainly project execution?

Quote:
MBA Fields of Interest

* Software Product Management, Software Product Strategy, Mgmt Consulting in Tech Domain

Good to have all three on the 'MBA interest' plate. But when it comes to career choice, and for your MBA application you'll have to prioritise and narrow it down to one, as each of these would require a slightly different set of skills.

Quote:
Interested Schools

* INSEAD, Sloan, Stanford, Haas, ISB,.... (still trying to see best fit for fields of interest)

All good programs. But you might be too old for Stanford and too young for Sloan. For schools like INSEAD, ISB you'd still be older than the average guy getting in, but still not so bad a stretch.

Conspicuous by their absence - many European bschools where you'd fit in better. Intentionally?

You could pass her off as a young, aspiring entrepreneur trying to learn the ropes at a top business school. Young, she definitely is. But she’s gone way past the ‘aspiring’ stage.

Sila Toksoz already had a Master of Science (M.Sc.) degree in Materials Science & Nanotechnology and a Bachelors degree in Molecular Biology & Genetics when she launched her Biotech startup (Biyonesil Biological Products) in Turkey.

Her entrepreneurial journey started after winning a business plan competition while she was still studying. Now she’s planning to take it all to the next level...Read More
