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,
OVerall I like what I see. BIG company. LOTS of promotions. You know what you want. All seems good. I think with a good application, CMU should be within range. For other schools with MISM degrees, you have notably Haas, and Georgia State, though I'm sure there are more. However, there are also other degrees which aren't Masters in Information Systems that might be appropriate for you, like Masters in Information Management and others... so you might look into those too.

Hi Jon,
Thanks for your time :)
Haas program looks interesting too.
And along with MISM I am also considering below B Schools,
Michigan Ross
UT Austin
Indiana Kelley
Arizona State University
Purdue Kernart
Michigan Broad
GA Tech

As I am depending upon good scholership or GA for more than half of my tuition fees which univerisity do you feel will be a good fit for me ?
Thanks again for your time.

Best Regards,
Arjun

Arjun,
All of the programs you have mentioned above are very good, programs with very solid brand names in the US and should be able to get you where you want. In general, you are more likely to get scholarship money from schools which area bit easier to get into than the harder ones which feel less need to offer incentive, so Michigan and Georgia tech will be easier than Austin and Ross.

Otherwise the two factors that will MOST help you secure your scholarship you need:
1. Apply to LOTS of programs, as many as you can
2. Apply EARLY

Good luck to you!

Thanks for your inputs Jon, I will better apply to fewer colleges like Georgia Purdue and Michigan. :)
