My Profile and chances of admission [#permalink] New post 18 Oct 2004, 11:59
Hi,

I am going to apply for Said (Oxford), York, CEIBS and ISB. For me, the important criterions for the MBA program are placements, duration and finances. Below is my profile, please let me know my suitability for the above programs and if i can go for applying to Insead also.

Profile
-------
25 Indian Male. IT professional. Currently based in US.

Work experience
------------------
4 and 1/2 years in one of the top 3 Indian IT Services Company. The organization has more than 30000 employees currently. I have worked on retail, Manufacturing and healthcare insurance domains and have been promoted once.

Academics
------------
Class 12th (High school) - 75% (Rank 4 out of 28). I was the School people leader at my school.

Graduated from one of the top engineering colleges in India. My specialization was in Mechanical Engg. Scored 77% (Rank 4 out of 40). I'm not sure how much does that translate in GPA.

I also presented a paper in one of the engg. Colleges in my final year and completed one year diploma program in networked centered computing during college days.

Extra-curricular
------------------
I am a certified Project management professional (PMP). Also have IBM Certifications for Administrator and developer for my domain area. One of the top 25 people contributors to knowledge management in the organization. Recently conducted a technical quiz across the organization with over 100 participants.

I do not have any mentionable volunteer/community work.

GMAT
-------
Taking it on 3-Nov.

Thanks

Just curious.

Why all one year programs?

Hi,

Good observation. Infact, York and CEIBS are 18 months each. However, i am not looking for a career change and plan to return back to IT after my MBA and pursue my intrest in the field of project management, so a one year course in general management suits me better. Also, i don't want to be out of a rather fast changing IT sector for long.

But, i have messed up my chances a little with a 660 score (49-Q, 31-V) :? .

thx
