In the careers essay (#2), I am slightly torn between writing about the same goal that I wrote about last year (which was management consulting), and another role that I am considering this year (actually had been considering this all along as well :lol: ), which is staying in the same industry and aiming for leadership roles. I am actually keen on both and open to both options. But since the word limit is 300, I do not think that I will be able to explain this in detail.



Did you get feedback from ISB? There is a possibility that you were not convincing enough with your career goals last year- in the written application or during the interview. Starting with that info would be a better way to handle it this year.
ISB has been increasing it leadership development program recruitments, and is also strong for consulting. So in terms of the school fulfilling your career goals- both are possibilities. You need to get into the depth of this and understand for:
1. management consulting- are you fit for the role considering your personal and professional attributes (and past experience)
2. Leadership development- the companies that you are interested in, do they recruit at ISB?
Just a few interactive sessions with ISB students/ alumni/ adcom should clear your views.

Hope that helps.

I got indirect feedback during the interview (they kept asking me for my backup plans if I didn't crack a consulting job). That is why I feel I want to be a little open in my essays itself that I am open to roles in my current industry itself.

Quote:
1. management consulting- are you fit for the role considering your personal and professional attributes (and past experience)


I have talked to people who are presently in consulting after completing their MBAs and they have given the feedback that I could work in consulting post-MBA.

Quote:
2. Leadership development- the companies that you are interested in, do they recruit at ISB?


Yes. The companies that I am keen on joining post MBA do recruit at ISB.

This is the reason why I am in a pickle.

Would you advise me to ask these questions at a webchat or counselling session (I have booked a 15 minute slot with them)?

Filling the application can take around 2 days to a week. But, this is considering that you have written your essays and your evaluators are done with the recommendations. It is these things that take up months of time. Writing your essays can be the biggest time taking task on your application. Followed closely by ensuring that your evaluators give you a good recommendation (they might ask you for many inputs - your CV, update on projects, other parts of application etc.).
Of course, this assumes that your GMAT is out of the way - you could take it on the last day of the applications, but dont do so!

So to summarize: minus your essays, evaluations and GMAT, I'd set aside at least a week.

FROM ISB PGP Admissions Director Blog: The Indian MBA: The Benefits of B-School in an Emerging Economy.
Poised for superpower status in the 21st century, India’s emerging economy is predicted by many to become the world’s largest within the next century. A massive democratic population, entrepreneurial spirit, and resource-conscience country, India — thanks to the promise of a stable government and analysts remaining bullish on the equity market — has the potential to rapidly grow its economy while others stagnate. And as the anticipated “Indian Century” gathers momentum, India’s business schools — along with B-schools of other emerging economies — offer aspiring global leaders the unprecedented opportunity to gain unique insights on the fast-growing economy.

The Rise of the Indian B-School

As India’s leading business school, the Indian School of Business (ISB) is well-positioned on the international B-school scene. The stats speak for themselves: in 2014, we achieved record numbers in everything from domestic and international salaries to unprecedented employment offers from Fortune 500 companies including technology and consulting innovators such as Apple, Facebook, Google and Microsoft. A staggering 423 companies (an increase of 21 percent from the prior year) recruited on campus, and the majority of students not only had numerous interviews, but also received multiple offers — giving them critical leverage when negotiating with potential employers.

The fact that ISB is a mere 13 years old and became India’s first AACSB-accredited B-school makes our success even more remarkable. Further enhancing ISB in both reputation and practical relevance are our associations with world-renowned B-schools across the globe, including Wharton, Kellogg and the London Business School. With an increasing number of Indian B-schools expected to receive accreditation and explore similar partnerships in the near future, the shift from a domestic to global viewpoint is well underway.

Marketability in the Global Economy

And with that shift comes the enhanced commodity of international faculty and students: as the Indian higher education sector explodes, a diverse student body is increasingly imperative. At ISB, we have our pick of extremely talented and well-trained students, thanks to an admissions yield of 85 percent; this is fast approaching the 90 percent seen at elite institutions such as Harvard and Stanford.

Grads of B-schools in emerging economies are also in great demand when they hit the workforce. Today’s employers are not only looking for the cream of the crop; they’re also in search of future business leaders with international perspectives. Diversity is imperative, and an international education vastly boosts marketability. Furthermore, Indian B-schools offer students the chance to develop expertise in specialized industry and functional majors so they’re prepared to hit the ground running.

In short, job seekers who want their resumes shuffled to the top of the pile should seek out ways to show their diverse viewpoint, and international study offers exactly that. In conjunction with India’s rising economic star status, the country’s B-school graduates are particularly sought after.

Return on Investment

An added benefit of attending business school in India? The potential return on investment is huge – particularly when you factor in the reasonable cost of living and low tuition fees compared to B-schools in other desirable locations, such as the U.S. and the U.K. And because Indian B-school grads are in such great demand, their earning potential is equally significant.

While India might not come immediately to mind when it comes to business schools, it may in the very near future. Students savvy enough to pursue higher education opportunities in India can gain a valuable global perspective… and a critical leading edge.

Hello Friends,

Please provide me profile evaluation :

GMAT Score : 690 (Q46, V 38, IR 1 ( this came as a shocker to me, never scored this low even in mocks !!! AWA : awaited )

10th : 86.5% (Maharashtra State Board)
12th : 84.5 % (Maharashtra State Board)
BE Mechanical Engg from VIT, Pune. Aggregate of four years : 60.21 %
WE : 53 months.
First 32 months with a Tata group company in auto component manufacturing industry. I was in Strategic Sourcing function. It was a techno-commercial job which involved managing complete supply chain of auto components (annual volume : 2 Lakhs unit) from India to a Europe. "New Product Development" was a significant part of my job. Have actually worked on shop-floor of many small Indian manufacturers (who were my suppliers) and have very good knowledge of various manufacturing and quality processes.
Since last 21 months I have been working with a Godrej group company. Here the role is more commercial however the job is more strategic because of very high scales of operation. Responsible for total commodity purchases (metals, polymers and chemicals) worth Rs 400 Crs (that's a huge buy-value for a guy with mere 4.5 years of experience). Job also involves significant monitoring of global economic events which affect Indian Rupee and global commodities prices. New product development remains the same.

EC :
1. (I am not sure whether this will be considered under EC) : Since last 2 and half years, I have been a very active stock market trader (events oriented trading in options). Learnt about all trading instruments (cash and derivatives) on my own. Have done significant study of various technical indicators and chart reading techniques. This is my biggest passion. Recently I have started an offline forum to educate people about stock market and various instruments available to them. This is purely educational forum. Soon will be launching my own website to take forward on a bigger scale (I don't intend to make money on it though).
2. I have been playing guitar since last 7 years. Have participated in couple of shows with a small band. Used to teach guitar to beginners (almost for 6 moths). Completed grade 1 exam of Trinity School of Music, London. Free-lance guitarist since last 4 years.
3. Represented my company in "Tata Business Leadership Award" in year 2012. Our team was selected in top 8 from Western Zone.
4. Couple of awards for outstanding contributions to New Product Development.
5. Won a national level technical event during graduation. This was related to developing an innovative product with maximum number of energy conversions.
6. Won many state level competitive exams securing ranks in top 10 at district level (school level achievements).

I have already had a counselling call with ISB team. I was worried about my low IR score. However, the guy said ISB wont consider IR score hence I need not worry about it. However, I am still anxious since the score is least possible you could get in IR...

Your valuable feedbacks will highly be appreciated.

Vaibhav

A good thing to incorporate in the essays.
Try to plug these in about how you can give back to ISB.

Neither, I think :-D

I think he is referring to using the clubs at ISB as a way of giving back to the ISB community.

So which cycle is better for ISB... R1 or R2?

Technically speaking more applications come in R2 with higher GMAT scores so it looks like a disadvantage but if you look at the stats of at least last year the school got around 2000 applications in R2 and made 572 offers but in R1 the school got over 1100 applications and made only 187.

What makes it even more fuzzy is the R1 Waiting List of 150 to 200 candidates.

So it is very difficult to tell if probability wise R1 is better than R2.

However some data I have managed to collect does suggest that certain types of profiles would find R2 more favorable than R1 an then there are others for whom it is the other way around.

For Example A CA or a Doc would find the going easier in R1 as compared to R2 where as candidates from PSUs with higher GMAT and Women with even below avg GMAT will find it easier in R2. Unfortunately for the infamous Indian IT Male - AVG (or IIM A) category if does not make a difference when they apply.

Totally confusing ... Right???

So don't bother ... Apply when you are fully ready!
