Hey,buddies. Congs to all of you accepted.

But please help to relax my doubts on the following essay:

"Why are you applying to the HEC MBA Program now? What is the professional objective that will guide your career choice after your MBA, and how will the HEC MBA contribute to the achievement of this objective? "

How to understand "What is the professional objective that will guide your career choice after your MBA" after another question about short-term career goal?

Tks a lot!

Hi all HEC alumni of 2012 :good
:wave

Congratulations to all... specially to EWO. I thnk your name should be right there in the moderators list.. :bouncer

Nevertheless... Hi, Im Sameer,

Just created my account after reading this thread..

GMAT: 680
Exp: 4yrs IT
Based: Delhi/ India
Applying for: Spet 2010
International Exposure: Been to Denmark for work, Went to Spain(Barcelona)..and loved Europe :beer :beer
Extra Curricular: Part of NGO, Captained college cricket team and won State level tournament.
Interests: Tourism and want to be an international tourist ..

N I am yet to submit my application to HEC. :beat

Well, There's really nothing left to ask after reading this thread..

One question though.. will the interviews for Delhi candidates be conducted in Delhi itself? I think there are 2-3 candidates who made it to HEC this year from Delhi. Please guys relp relp.. :help2

I read somewhere there are 120 seats reserved for this intake, and around 75 have been filled considering LinkedIn signers, Im sure this doesn't make any sense as assumption is very vague..

Can someone comment on my profile and my chances?? :punk

TIA

Sameer

Congrats to the new admits! I'm really enjoying seeing the class fill up on LinkedIn :-D

We have so much diversity in background, experience, and hobbies!

Trentohawk,

I would answer the question as more of your long-term career goal. Since there is a separate essay on short-term goals, this is an opportunity for you to address your extended career vision. For example, immediately after your MBA, you may want to take on a more senior or mid-level role to your previous position if you are remaining in the same industry. If you are aiming to change industries, you may want to focus on a more reasonable mid-level position. However, your long-term career goals could be vice president or C-level executive in whatever industry you pursue, after a suitable amount of work. So for example: If you are in high-tech and staying there, you might have your immediate post-MBA goal be a manager or associate director position (assuming you were a senior engineer of some sort before). Your longer term goal could be to be head of your sector in your country or your functional group. Ideally, your professional objective is what you are aiming for in the apex of your career. Anyway, this is just one example, but I hope it helps! Good luck!

Samd, you are too kind :wink:. I believe most of the candidates from India interviewed in person in their local city. (There are quite a few alumni there.) So hopefully, you won't have to travel too far for an interview. And I think the total # of participants for the September intakes is more like 155. There are more admitted than attend (yield rate of about 65%), so don't let the numbers scare you. I wish you luck!

Thanks EWO!! Not bewildered by numbers.. not at all!!
Read the PagalGuy thread too.. boy you have some temperament :pc

One question: How does a previous managerial experience matter? I have 0 years :ouch but, in professional life I've shown leadership traits on many occasions .. :panel and have been a good :circle team member..

EWO:

tks a lot! it's pretty insightful. Why not to directly ask for long-term goal like other schools(kidding:-) I heard Sept Intake doesn't have such question in application.

Btw, I found hec almost invites any applicant in personal interview according to the data published on BusinessWeek, so pre-selected interview's not that "selected" I think. 2 cents just.

Hi,

My apologies if this comes out as a basic question about HEC Paris. But I'd like to know if the school considers the brand management its strong area. Many top schools such as HEC Paris usually have a 'scheme' i.e. what each school is known for, and I'd like to make sure I know the one for HEC Paris.

Thanks.

Hi Trentohawk,

This question "What is the professional objective that will guide your career choice after your MBA" is pretty straight-forward, until you read the next question about the short-term goals :). I felt the same when I read them for the first time and it took some effort in deciding where to draw the line so that I can answer both questions to the point. Basically, "professional objective" is what you want to achieve professionally and short-term and long-term goals are kind of a phased approach of how you will achieve it. Enough of this bookish explanation, let's take a simple example. If you want to change an industry after MBA (and yes you have to give very strong reasons as to why) OR if you want to move to a different function (again reasons) then you can talk about it as a professional objective that will drive your career choice after MBA. Your short-term goals would be a deeper explanation on how you plan to achieve or master that professional objective - in this context, company, target job role, etc.

This is my understanding of the question and should be taken as a guideline :)

Hi everybody!!

I was thinking that perhaps you can help me with the following query, since all of you have ben so useful during this long process. I applied in R2 and I got and admit time ago, but today I have received a mail from the HEC to schedule a personal interview with the Developement Manager for North America. She told me:

Hello,
Your profile is of great interest to us and I would like to offer you the opportunity to discuss your project in person.
I am looking forward to meeting you soon.

[/i]

Does anybody received a email like that??she also proposed me some dates that I definitely Cannot attend, so I was thinking what do you think of proposing a phone call o meeting them in Paris a little bite latter?

Thank you very much for you help.

Hi Pimientaysal,

Are you sure it is not a "commercial" email ? I was contacted in the same way by Rick Doyle the development manager for asia ( means their program selling person) before I applied.

She certainly took your your name out of of list like the one available at the GMAC and saw you were a fit but didnt know/check you already applied.

If you are already in they have no discuss with you further before the beginning of the program, I would be you I would politely send back a mail telling you are already accepted and that maybe a meeting in september would be still ok.

Thank you for your answer JiangNan,

I did not think about that, but I do not think so. If I reply to the email, it goes to the person who evaluated my profile at the beginning of the process and the email that I received it is in the same way as a meeting invitation sent by outlook to confirm the appointment.

Again, thank you for your help

Hello HEC applicants! Tomorrow is the admission jury. I hope the admission team keeps up with the good work and notify us about their decision tomorrow, like they did in the previous rounds.

I am alternating periods of confidence with periods of complete lack of hope... :roll: It would be nice to hear from you guys and share our experiences.

I wish we all the best of luck! :-D

same with me: alternating periods of confidence with periods of complete lack of hope..
let's hope we all hear of the good news today...

by the way: Brgal--how did you know that the admissions jury is today? (if it is not a secret of course) I had my interviews on April 2nd and I thought that by now they should already have a final decision on my application...I believe previous years they always had final decisions within a couple of days after the interviews...
