Dear Sameer,

Thanks many for your reply. I will follow your suggestions.

Greetings,
Amnesty

Amnesty-ji,

From the follow-up post, the acknowledgement and the kudos, I also deduce that you are polite, grateful and professional in your (formal and informal) dealings.

More brownie points for you from my side.

Whatever line you choose, you'll make a good business leader.

Hi Sameer,

I greatly appreciate your providing feedback on profiles. Your feedback is really thoughtful and useful. I know you are super busy, but if you do get a chance to review my profile below and comment, I would be very grateful.

Super busy indeed, Winds81.

It's peak season. Our forum activity has gone down significantly as we've been focussing on pampering our small clientele family members who help us pay the bills, so we can get back here and continue giving free advice for the rest of the year.

I am very keen on continuing a career in marketing. Can you kindly advise which schools will best suit my profile? I am keen on Duke, Haas and Cornell.
Thank you very much in advance.

Statistically, there'd be fewer Indian applicants with your specific background. But the initial diffferentiation can only be used as a stepping stone if the other key parameters (like GMAT) are also strong. If not, then the load on the rest of the components goes up significantly.

If the GMAT can't be fixed, it might be a good idea to include other schools that are more practical.

Check out some of the stories in the post (Desi girl power stories) just before this one, for a quick dose of inspiration.

MBA entrepreneurs: Why many bschool grads may never launch a startup

Here’s an intriguing phenomenon. We have seen the same trend in applicants who work with us on the MBA Mock Application Process (MBA MAP). A significant number of MBA applicants explicitly list entrepreneurship as a post MBA goal in their admission essays.

They do a fantastic job in explaining the brilliant entrepreneurial idea they have in mind, the skills & resources need to execute that plan and how an MBA will provide them with the perfect platform to launch their startup in technology, healthcare, education or any of the other ‘sunrise’ sectors. So far, so good.

But something changes the minute they step into the bschool campus and the mindset change continues as they move into the job hunting phase...Read More

Devarshi,

A high GMAT will help. You've got a First class which would be fine for most schools and may not be the primary cause of a ding (if at all that's the result). You'd still be competing with others who have stronger GPAs and GMATs and work experience.

So aim for that high GMAT, by all means. But do focus on the real world accomplishments that are better indicators of your managerial and leadership potential.

MIT SCM Course (MLOG) – Supply Chain Management, anyone?

The MIT Supply Chain Management (SCM) course, formerly known as MLOG, combines two lethal components – the strong Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) brand and one of the key disciplines that the brand is known for – Supply Chain Management (SCM).

Satya Dhavala already had an MBA in Operations from the Indian Institute of Science (IISc). Like many who’ve jumped into their first MBA course early, Satya soon felt the need for another degree that would open up global opportunities.

He tried his hand at the top MBA programs, but without luck. He then explored the option of gaining a specialty degree in a niche area. The MIT SCM course (MLOG) seemed to be the perfect choice for his career goals...Read More

435 posts...Ayyo! seems like you really spent a lot of time on GMAT prep. 710 is a decent score. Well done!

And even after all those posts, I see that you haven't gone ballistic copying and pasting your profile on 20 different consultant threads. Talk about focus :-)

Thanks for choosing our thread for posting this.

You'll probably lose the admissions officer here. There are too many tech terms that the MBA application reviewer may have no clue about.

You've got some nice stuff in here. But be careful that this section doesn't hijack your primary story, if you know what I mean.

'Consultancy services' is too vague. It could apply to any industry and any role.

You'll need to drill down further. Are you looking at strategy consulting? If so, ensure that you make that clear in the essays.

getgyan wrote:

I'm afraid I can't randomly list down schools, as our school recommendation process is part of a bigger and more structured application strategy process (we call it the MBA MAP). It takes into consideration many more aspects.

You'd be a good candidate for the MBA MAP. Check it out and see if that would interest you.

It does help that your profile is a little hat-ke considering the Indian applicant pool. Though it always helps to have a higher GMAT score, it generally is never the primary differentiator for Indian applicants. Your experience will be slightly on the lower side. So I'd be keen to see how you'd highlight the quality of your contributions.

ISB YLP (Young Leaders Program) has an unsual format. While the regular PGP program at ISB Hyderabad & Mohali requires a minimum of 2 years work experience, the ISB YLP programs opens its doors to freshers (i.e. those with no work-ex).

But it is not a short cut for the selected applicants. All it offers is a guaranteed seat in the regular PGP batch after a couple of years. In this post we evaluate the ISB YLP, probably the best MBA option for freshers that considers GMAT scores, as opposed to CAT percentile for admissions...Read More

Executive MBA vs MBA for Executives – The Big Indian Confusion

In India, mention ‘Executive MBA’ to an MBA aspirant and ask him how it differs from an ‘MBA for executives’. The odds are high that you’ll end up confusing your friend. And not without reason. Several popular post-graduate management courses offered by our IIM clan (Indian Institutes of Management) have the word executive in them.

So, we’ve got IIMA PGPX (Post Graduate Programme for Executives at IIM Ahmedabad), EPGP (Executive PGP in Management) offered by IIM Bangalore and IIM Indore, PGPex (Executive PGP at IIM Calcutta and IIM Shillong). But these courses, in the technical sense, are not the same as an Executive MBA.

The terms ‘MBA’ and ‘Executive MBA’ might be clear to folks outside India. But back home, the concept of an MBA aimed at experienced professionals (or ‘executives’) is relatively new. In this post, we try to address the difference between the traditional Indian MBA, the traditional executive MBA and the not so traditional new-kid-on-the-block – the MBA for executives in India...Read More

CNN IBN Live hosts Sameer Kamat

When: Friday 7th Dec

Time: 1 pm - 2 pm IST.

Where: CNN IBN Live Chat room (Click on the link)

Topic: MBA Book - Beyond The MBA Hype

Synopsis:

Most Indian MBA applicants are completely at sea when it comes to approaching international education opportunities. This is primarily because the MBA selection process and the parameters considered by the top business schools abroad for admitting candidates into their fold are very different from what we are used to.

'Beyond the MBA Hype' talks about the typical issues, challenges and dilemmas that Indian applicants grapple with when it comes to international MBA programmes – from the typical candidate profile to the selection and admission process, to what to expect in the course itself as well as after completing MBA.

If you have queries about any of these aspects, please join in for the Live chat session. If you aren't able to make it for the live session, post your queries any time before the session begins and check back later.

I hope to interact with you soon.

USA MBA accepting 15 years of education from Indian universi [#permalink] New post 12 Jan 2013, 00:08
USA MBA accepting 15 years of education from Indian universities

Many US business schools and top universities expect applicants to have completed 16 as opposed to 15 years of education. In India, part from fields such as engineering, medicine and architecture, graduation in many popular disciplines require 15 years of education. This post is for those MBA aspirants who have completed their graduation in India in science, arts, commerce or any undergraduate stream that follows a 12+3 pattern.

These candidates may have landed a great job or successfully launched their own venture or made it big with their family business, so never considered studying further. Should a three years bachelor’s degree (or 15 years of formal education) act as a deterrent while applying for an MBA abroad? ...Read More
