Hi,

Thank you for reviewing my profile. Any advice you have would be much appreciated.

I am 25 yr old from India. I did my B.Tech. in 2010 from IIT BHU with CGPA of (7.24/10 Absolute Scale). I was also the placement coordinator of my college for two years(2008-2010)
Currently I am working in an IT Consulting firm(which was a Start Up when I joined) as a consultant. Company is in Business Process Modelling domain and has grown leaps and bounds in last two years. I have been involved in some very decent projects.

I am planning for MBA-2014 batch. As a short term goal I want join a consulting firm. In long run I want to go for entrepreneurship. I will be taking my GMAT on 3rd September. In practice test I have been getting scores in the range of 710-750.

Kindly suggest me some business school matching my profile and goals. Also please note that My budget is not very high and my first preference would be 1 year courses.

Thanks,


Ankit

Ankit-- I would advise you to seek a two year MBA if at all possible. Better to do part time program than a one year program. The part time program will take longer, but you can keep working while you do it, plus there are far more reputable part time MBA programs than one year MBA programs. If you don't have an academic background in business, you will not get enough out of a one year MBA.

Ankit, if you are able to achieve a 750 GMAT, you could feasibly apply to any school in the top 10 in the US, assuming you could demonstrate substantail leadership potential from your work experience. It's really more of a question of where you want to spend two years and where you want to work when you get out. If it's in the US, sometimes regionalizing your b-school is a good idea. If in Europe or Asia, then schools over there could be a good choice, or schools here which have a good reputation overseas. Also, you could do some due dilligence on consulting firms which hire from various schools and target those schools.

Hi,

I took GMAT about a month back. My score (680(31V,50Q,5.5AWA) was very dismal. I have already posted my profile earlier in this thread. Please suggest me some B Schools which align with my profile and scores.


Regards,

Ankit
