Interested in top schools, which ones? [#permalink] New post 22 Sep 2004, 11:21
It has been a nice experience to read thru the posts on this forum. I am appearing in GMAT in December. I am an Indian male with an engineering degree in Electronics from NIT with some 9 years of experience in Indian administrative sevice - the elite service of the Indian government. During these years I have headed various important offices and assignments and been part of many projets such as those of world Bank, WFP , Unicef etal. I have won few national awards for them. Academically I have a pretty strong background with many schols and gold medals ( more than 85% aggregate) including one by the Prez of India for being the best overall student...have a fair sprinkling of success in extra curriculars like sports, debates and voluntary work.

I am expecting a Gmat score around 720 and a 99 in Quant ability.

Intersted in top schools but where do I stand a good chance? How do I go about it? Your reply would be of great help. thx!

hi !

I am looking for an MBA that positions me for international organisations such as World Bank, ADB snd other UN orgs. Some of them being related to both finanace and governance would suit me ideally. Some of my service mates have passed out from Harvard and the like and are working in the above said orgs. An MBA with a liberal dose of finanace, economics, non profit, development etal would perhaps be good. Any other idea is welcome.

thx

Hi,

I would consider some of the other American ultraelites such as Stanford, Chicago, Columbia, and Northwestern as well.

Columbia is especially interesting since the School of International and Public Affairs has a number of courses in economic policy management.

Thanx Hjort!

What do u think are my chances vis a vis other students with a backgrnd in industry? DO U know people of similar backgrounds as mine making presence there?

And secondly finnacial arrangements...my employer can support me upto $18000 which is not enough...hence which univs are more likely to be charitable to non profit/ govt sector applicants like me!

thx

Hi,

Based on your interest in international organizations, have you researched International Affairs/Diplomacy programs in the United States and elsewhere?
