Hi Sujit,

You have a decent profile. Even though you belong to a competitive applicant pool (Indian, Male,) the good news is it is not the most competent because you are not IT professional.

Academic Capacity: GMAT Score :Your GPA seems to be good, but if you are aiming for the top 15, you will have to aim for 720+ GMAT score ( not 620+) to prove your academic capacity.

Work Experience: Excellent. You have more work experience than most US B-schools look for in their prospective students ( 4-5 years). However, I do believe that with 11 years of work experience, you may benefit more from EMBA where you will interact with experienced professionals like yourself.

You also demonstrate constant career progression. 7 promotions in 11 years confirm a significantly progressive career graph. I understand that with your varied professional experience, you must have held some leadership roles as well , and those leadership stories, if narrated effectively, will sure strengthen your profile.

International Experience: You have 3 years of international experience which is good.

Why MBA? Your Goal: You have stated :“ However my passion has always being finance and special interest in capital markets and various facets of capital market participation and opportunities. To supplement my passion I am planning to do MBA from premier school with specialization in finance.”

This is the area you need to be extremely articulate about . That is, if you are saying you have always been passionate about finance, you will need to demonstrate how you have pursued it so far in your career, what are your future goals and how you think your past experience, and a MBA from a specific school with a specialization in finance will help you fulfill your career goals. B-schools want people who have a clear idea of what they are doing and who can prove that they will be successful business leaders one day.

I hope it helped.

Hi Sujit,

You have a decent profile. Based on your profile, I would recommend you to apply for executive MBA Program and you can target ISB PGPMAX, HEC Paris, INSEAD, LBS and NYU Stern. You can also try your chances in b-schools by clicking http://tinyurl.com/acrp3n7 . Just like application essays, b-school interviews equally plays important role. This is where you can demonstrate your headship skills and professional achievements to convert you chances of application to admission. To know more about interview tips, visit http://bit.ly/XQVp4s

However you would need to cleverly prepare yourself for questions like your rationale behind applying for a specific B school, so on and so forth.

The next step for you is to focus more on your application essays & recommendations for these Business Schools. Hence it would be highly advisable to seek assistance from professional consultants for guidance on preparing a good letters of recommendations and get your essays/scholarship essays evaluated before sending it out along with your application.

Please visit http://tinyurl.com/cnpsl4a to see more about online Essay Evaluation.

Also if you happen to be based in Mumbai you can attend a MBA workshop by alumnus of various global B-Schools during the dates mentioned in this links http://tinyurl.com/cjy62uh

Also visit http://tinyurl.com/cfq7wr8, this can help you to select the business school as per your requirement and profile and visit http://tinyurl.com/cyfl8kz here you can find your chances of getting admit in a business school chosen by you.

Let me know in case of further queries you might have. You can even PM me your number to have a discussion on your profile and selection of b-schools.

Cheers!!
Shweta Vijlani
