Hi,

I had a very unusual academic period over the last five years. I was admitted to one of the finest universities in my country for my undergrad. In my third year i went into a major depression phase, which ultimately led me to drop out, my grades were poor as well. I was 22 at that time.
Later i got really serious with life. i am 26 now and this what i have accomplished till now:

- completed a 2 year graduation degree
- Completed my CFA ( waiting for charter)
- completed requirements for Associate of Society of Actuaries (i will be awarded the associateship this year)
- GMAT : 740
- Work Experience : I started my own e-learning company 4 years ago. Now i have 25 employees, double digit growth rate and substantial revenues.
Nationality : Pakistani

I really want to go to INSEAD for MBA, but i don't know that my application would be worth the merit or not. Please advise me on other MBA programs that i should consider.

Thank You.
Zack.

Zack,

Please confirm that you ultimately completed your undergrad degree and then went on to complete a grad degree. That's what I am understanding from your post. If I misunderstand, please correct me.

Regards,
Linda

sorry for this confusion...i have only completed 2 year undergrad degree.
One of the options i have is that i should pursue fellowship of Society of Actuaries( because i am an associate of Society of Actuaries) but i am more interested in MBA. Is something that is out of picture considering the fact that i messed up some early years of my life?

Zack,

Most top MBA programs require a 4-year bachelors degree You don't have to give up on the MBA, but you may have to complete your bachelors before you attempt to pursue it. You could ask if an FSA would suffice, but I doubt it.

Best,
Linda
