I joined this company as a Graduate Engineer Trainee in Jan 2005 i.e 6 months after my college & my progress has been good . I am one of the youngest persons in the company to be promoted to this role. I am handling revenues of around 15 Million USD & a team of 4 people with work experience varying from 2-10 years. I have a great potential with this company & am being groomed by the higher management ( General Managers / Sr.Managers etc)

8) Strengths: High learn-ability , ability to work in teams / highly motivated & dedicated.

A lot of it honestly will depend on your GMAT score.

Assuming your GMAT is in the high 600s or better, the kinds of schools you should focus on are:

Europe: Oxford, Cambridge, IE, ESADE, IESE
Asia: HKUST, ISB
US/Can: Rotman, Ivey, Queen's, Georgetown, USC, Texas, Emory

You should have a reasonable shot at these schools. For the top 16 schools, what will put you at a disadvantage is that you're up against other Indian guys who have more international experience than you (there's enough Indian guys who have spent a few years already working/studying full-time in the US/Europe before applying to b-school, and they will have a leg up on you).

Nonetheless, if you focus on the schools listed above, you should be able to get the kinds of jobs you want after b-school.

than you for you reply.

I was not keen for the European B-schools becoz of the skewed work permit regulations post MBA.

What are my chances at Ross / Booth assuming a GMAT score of 650+?

You have mentioned the top 16 in the US . Which are these ?

Hi,

I just joined this forum and woud like to know where I stand in terms of targeting MBA programmes in UK and India.

My profile:
GMAT: 740
Current status: UK Permanent Resident
Education: IIT Bombay Dual degree 2003. GPA 6.91 (its low)
Work-ex: 3 year in India, 5+ years in UK. Total 8+ years. Currently working in UK
International work ex: Have been to around 30 countries for various assignments while living in UK
Sector: IT
Company: Worked for motola while India, now working for a small company (25 people) in UK
Designation: Services Manager (Reports to CEO).

Expectations: Want to work in UK post MBA. Long term is not clear - may be UK or India. Definitely not US - have been there many times and its not my type.

Recent results: Insead jan 2012 R3 (rejected), Judge R1 sep 2012 (rejected), LBS/cranfiled 2012 (applied and waiting), Said 2012 (will apply). Thinking about ISB too (applied there 6 years ago, was shorlisted for interview but eventually rejected).

Waiting for comments from expert consultants ....
