I am interested in the MIT LGO program and will apply for the 2012 session. Below is my profile
Age: 29 yrs, male Nationality: Indian, US Green Card Education: MS in Electrical Engineering ( not ranked school) GMAT:710 ( Q-47, V-41, Essay- 5.5) Work Exp: 5-6 years Background: I have Bachelors degree in Electronics and Communication from India with a GPA of approx 3.2/4.0. I did my Masters in Electrical Engineering ( avg school not ranked, GPA 3.9/4.0). I worked for a year at a Fortune 100 company manufacturing plant and then joined a startup. I worked at the startup (about 10-15 people) for about 3 years in the semiconductor industry. At this company the first year and a half i was supporting the operation/manufacturing group and then when things went bad for the company I was the only person left supporting the company manufacturing equipments and running the location (including managing time for part timers working at the company) I was at. I had the opportunity to understand the different aspects of the business such as cost cutting, improving efficiency etc.. I think this really helped me grow as an Engineer. Due to some personal events in my life, I decided to move from the semiconductor industry to the medical industry. I wanted to do something that would make a difference in the medical industry. I worked for Fortune 100 company ( medical division) for a year in the Sustaining Engineering group and then joined another Fortune 100 company(medical industry) as a sr manufacturing engineering working with the operations group. I have been at this company for about 6 months and had the opportunity to lead some small projects and currently semi- leading a big project. I have always handled overseas manufacturing groups, responsible for improving operations. I am really interested to grow in the Operations field and have the experience of working in a small company environment as well as a big company. I have been involved with lot of different extra curricular activities as well throughout my career such as organizing 3 day camps for 50-60 indian kids, started a fund at a hospital, organized sports events in college, tried starting a company with a coworker.. etc.
Are there any other schools that i will be a good match at?
I am interested in Operations Management/ General Management.. I am still trying to figure out my long term career goals. i am also really interested in Management Consulting but I have heard that with my profile it would be hard to get into.
My concern is whether my profile is good enough to get into a top 10-15 MBA school.
There isn't anything that you have written that would disqualify you from a top program. What it will come down to is how well you distinguish yourself from other qualified candidates. If you look in the URL I had posted earlier, the engineer really aimed to show his leadership abilities. I would recommend you look to do so as well. Some of your extracurricular activities are also very interesting.
