My Profile Evaluation [#permalink] New post 10 Dec 2012, 12:43
Age 25, Male, Indian

Academic Details:

Xth Grade -83.2%
XIIth Grade - 85.4%
Electronics and Communication Engineering from one of the top 10 Engineering Colleges in India.
Top 10% of the batch , Percentage -76.4%
GMAT - 680 (Q49, V32 , AWA 5 , IR 8)

Work Experience:

2 years 5 months , Technical Sales Engineer: Field Sales Office.

As a technical Sales in one of the top Semiconductor company ,I handle and manage the top clients from Telecom, Industrial, Renewable Energy and Automotive domains . My primary responsibility is to drive revenue and develop sales strategy at these high potential clients.
Work involves understanding the client applications by both technically and commercially by working with the top management.
Recommending suitable semiconductor solutions by leveraging internal applications and systems teams.
Other key functions of my job are Channel Management, Revenue forecasting and development of 'pricing strategies' based on market and competition analysis.
I have been able to generate a business pipeline of $1M since I joined the field sales role.

Also,worked in the US for 8 months in different product groups and conducted market research on upcoming technologies. The data was utilized by the strategic marketing team to affirm the market strategy.

Extra Curricular Activities:

- Chief organizer of the Literary events in the college cultural festival.
- Organized and represented my employer in technical training and workshop at my college.
- Mentored new hires.

MBA Goal :

My immediate goal is to transition to a Product Marketing role in technology company. Long term goal is to get into strategic marketing.
A school strong in technology marketing courses and having a good alumni network in the hi-tech product/ renewable energy companies would be suited for my needs.

Target Schools are :

1) Kellogg
2) Haas
3) UCLA
4) Tepper
5) Tuck
6) NUS

I believe a relatively low GMAT score and a slightly less work-ex and no volunteer activities can hinder my chances for admission at top B schools this year. Would want to hear your views and other recommended B-Schools that I can apply to.

Also, would love to hear your views on what can make my profile stronger for these schools if I choose to apply next year.

Thanks!

You've chosen your schools well in terms of your goal -- not so well, as you yourself say, in terms of your qualifications. I agree with you that your GMAT, specifically the verbal score, will be a significant hurdle at your target programs with the possible exception of Tepper and NUS. Lack of experience is an issue if you apply this year, especially at programs like Haas, Tuck, and Kellogg. it will be less of an issue if you apply in Fall 2013 with the intention of matriculating in Fall 2014. And your work experience is impressive, albeit brief.

Lack of extra-curriculars is a weakness. In most situations, mentoring new hires is not considered an extra-curricular activity; it's being nice.

Improving your GMAT score and your extra-curricular activities is something you can clearly work in if you aim for a 2014 matriculation. Plus, if you apply next fall, the passage of time will pretty much erase or certainly reduce concerns about lack of experience.

Additional schools to consider: Duke, Cornell Johnson, and Ross.

For more tips on applying, choosing schools, and mitigating weaknesses, please see MBA Admission for Smarties. or MBA Admissions 101.

Best,
Linda
