I would highly appreciate if any representative from U.S. B Schools in the range 5-20 (excluding M7) involving Mba Technology or Mba Consulting, could answer my questions.
1)In Bschools view, How important is the Company Brand name in the past work experience. If one has worked in a boutique firm(given that its a boutique pulic firm in international location) but gained good team management, client management experience, and introduced new technologies that improved the productivity and efficiency of company and clients, would it be regarded as good work experience ?
2)Do adcoms even care to hear about mitigating circumstances, i.e. if you had to take a significant decision at some point in your career, does explaining it in the essays even help or is it just YAWN?
3)Why do every year, so few people graduate in Mba Technology, from B schools , is the study or career growth prospects so bleak and mundane? How are candidates from Mba Technology looked at by other students, nerdy?
(In a 100% profile, only 8% or so get placed into Technology.)
4)For International students, especially Indians, how can a candidate stregthen his/her profile to attract the adcoms, (YES this is a generic question, BUT if i was already in a BSchool i would certainly have an advise for others), i mean improve in terms of does it help to polish and represent past experience, how does your future goals relate to your mba, recom letters, getting an admission consultant`s view/expertise.
5)Do Mba Technology or Mba strategy students manage to get placed into any Senior Management, or Management roles during placements?
If you found the reply to be helpful, give kudos.
