My profile:

Indian Male / 27 years old

B.Tech In Computer Science & Engineering from JNTU Hyderabad,India (Not as good as IITs but one of the top universities in the state of A.P. I ranked 71 among 140000 entrance exam takers to get into the college)

Undergraduate GPA: 77%

GMAT: 760 (Q50 V41) +4.5 AWA

Work Experience:Working in an Indian IT Consulting organization for the past 7 years .

0-2 years - Worked for a US credit card/banking client in India.
2-7 years - Have been working with a financial services client in USA.

I am currently working as a project architect for one of the technology assets within the client organization.My responsibilities include creating and maintaining long term strategy/roadmap for our assets, Analysing Industry trends in the technology used by our group, evaluating new solutions and providing recommendations to clients.

Prior to my current role i have worked as tech lead and responsible for building new technology infrastructure in our group when our client separated from another company.

All 7 yrs of my experience have been in the technology arena and i don't have any managerial experience.

Extra Curriculars : Long Distance Runner. Ran 2 full marathons in the last 2 years and a 193 mile relay race recently. I also volunteered in few local running races.

Reason for MBA: Working for a financial services client got me interested in finance and post MBA i am interested in switching career to finance.

I am considering the below list of schools to apply in Round 2 for fall 2011 admissions.How good are my prospects for admission into these schools?

London School of Business

Are there any other schools in US/Europe that might be a fit for me and worth exploring?


Please give me kudos if you like my post

your background might align well with GA Tech's program. Also, if you like Wharton, you should consider Booth in Chicago....if you like Duke, you should consider Kellogg and also Virginia (Darden) and UNC (Keenan Flagler)
