Hi,

Could you please evaluate my profile below,
GMAT 680 (Q:46 V:37)
B Tech in Computer Science with 74%
12th 85%
10th 82%

My professional background
Currently working with Samsung Electronics
I have more than 5 years of experience in Mobile domain.
Have contributed extensively to bring in differentiation to Samsung mobile applications and other features.
Worked closely with the Business analysts and user experience team for betterment of Samsung products.
Am promoted 3 times in last 4 years.
Currently working as a Lead Engineer for Samsung's Android Mobile division, managing a team of 5 people by mentoring them technically, where in by default for anyone to lead a team it takes about 7 to 8 years of exp in Samsung.
Youngest Java and Android Trainer in Samsung Electronics India with best overall feedback score of 4.2 / 5.

Having experienced what it takes to make a product like Samsung Galaxy Series (Galaxy S, S2 and S3 ) I would like to further enhance my knowledge towards Business intelligence and Data analytics.
My short term goal is to join a major OEM or Service Provider or a consulting firm as a Business Intelligence Analyst (Ex: Samsung / Google / ComScore etc)

I am very much interested in going for MISM (Business Intelligence Data Analytics )Course by Heinz CMU.
I am keen on MISM as the course is of 1 year and also It bridges the gap between my short term goal and my present career.

Coming to extra curricular activities, I was placement coordinator during my College days from year 2005 to 2007 and more than 150 offers were made for a class of 60 during my tenure as Placement Coordinator.

Whare are my chances of getting selected for MISM Course at CMU ? and which other university can i consider safe for my profile ?

Any input will be greatly appreciated.
One of my main concern is my GMAT Score :oops:

Thanks

Arjun,

I'm sorry. I'm not familiar enough with the MSIM program to comment.

Linda,
Thanks for your time, other than MISM I am also considering Arizona Carey, Texas A&M, Michigan Broad and Purdue Krannert.
do I stand a chance for these colleges ? Is there anything in my profile that you feel I have to improve?

Thanks,
Arjun

Arjun,

For these programs' MBA programs you have a competitive profile. In terms of improving it, you didn't mention any community servicesince college. That strikes me as somewhat of a weakness. To the extent that all of your work has been in India with Indians, you lack a certain diversity of exposure, but your work experience otherwise sounds quite strong.

Best,
Linda

Linda,
Yeah since college I couldnot serve any community due to my work schedule and frequent travel to South Korea, Samsung HQ. But I have taught basics of computers to few students in school for deaf and dumb, I am not sure to what extent I can showcase it.
And coming to international exp other than indians I have worked with Engineers from Samsung Isreal, Samsung UK, Samsung Korea, Samsung Telecommunications America but I never travelled to any of these countries other than South Korea.

Again thanks for your time and suggestions.

If you have traveled frequently to Korea for work and worked on projects with engineers from Israel, Korea, and the UK, then you should be able to write about multi-cultural experience and you do have international exposure.

Best,
Linda
