Wanted to get feedback on the MBA ambitions for the following profile.

Graduate in Finance from a top 10 UK b-school. Internship at a top-tier investment bank in valuations. Post graduate work experience as an analyst in risk management at another premier investment bank for 2 and a half years.

GMAT at 670.

Want to check:
1) If b-school hold appeal for a risk management background.
2) if gmat score is competitive enough in combination to the overall profile.

Target schools: lbs (mfin), isb (mba), insead singapore (mba)

Hi,
ISB has an average work-ex of 5 years and avg GMAT score 710. So, you should have alteast one of these to solidify your chances to get through.
INSEAD has an average work ex >4 years. So, there also chances are a little weak.

Probably you can consider some other colleges or retake GMAT.
Good LUck :)

I recommend retaking the GMAT given your target programs.

I don't understand your first question. Risk management is a valuable experience if you want to earn an MBA or MiF. Maybe that's what you meant.

Best,
Linda
