Hi All ,
Work Experience: 6 years experience in IT software development industry.
Query: Please provide your feedback on my WE.I would still like to invest a year to shape up my WE, if required.
Vishnu, The MBA application is about demonstrating a strong, well rounded personality. B-schools like applicants who have progressed well in their career, are high achievers and have made a positive impact in the professional and personal realm. Six years duration at work is a long enough time to get opportunities to do so. Therefore, I do not think you need to wait another year to apply. More important is, how strongly you are able to communicate these aspects in your application, through the data sheets, essays and recommendations.
|Query: Please provide the score I have to get in GMAT to get call from ISB/IIM.|
Query: I am targeting for only 1 year MBA programs. Please advise on the colleges that I can apply in India.
ISB and IIMs have the class average scores between 705 - 720. Try scoring in this range or above. Specifically in the case of IIM A, you should score above 690 as they will invite you to write the essays and for the interview based on the data sheet that you send them (which is the first eliminating step).
Other than the ISB and the IIMs, you can consider SP Jain (PGEMP) and XLRI ( GMP, requires 7 years work exp.).
Seems like you have been quite active outside work/ education. However, I would attach subsequent value to these activities only if you are still following them up. Your involvement 6 years ago, if not followed up, will have little impact now. If you are passionately pursuing Yoga and also training people, that may be a story worth telling.
|Why MBA? :|
Short Term Goal (5 to 10 years): I want to be part of strategic planning of consulting firms and to be in senior level management position.
Long term Goal (10 years +): Establishing a firm that would engage in various business consulting activities in Renewable Energy sector (it is my passion).
Dig deeper into these career goals when you articulate them in the essays. Adcoms want to hear the details and get the feel that you have researched your goals well. Additionally they would care to see some evidence about your passion in the renewable energy sector, if that is your long term goal.
|Query: In sum, this is what I have in me and this I want to do. I understand with my weak profile (WE and academics) its really hard to get the edge, but really want to get it..|
Focus on the strengths instead, and your profile may not look that weak afterall.
Namita GargI'd love to get your "kudos" if my post helped you.
