Hi,
Can you please provide me a short feedback on my profile?
Here is a brief on my profile:
Automotive Product Engineer - 7 yrs work at at matriculation. Worked with Robert Bosch Gmbh, a

fortune 100 and world's leading automotive company for 5 yrs and at a Harman Becker Automotive for over a year and half. Interacted with teams in Apple, BMW, Volvo, Ford and Aha Mobile. I

am currently involved in the technical integration of a new company by Harman.
8 months of international work experience, and coordinating with teams across multiple time zones and mentoring

a team of 4. sufficient leadership experiences One of the youngest members in the team, but shared the responsibilities that are typically done at a higher experience level of 7 years. Acted as a

liaison between the teams in India and Germany.
GMAT - 710 ( 39V, 48Q 4.5 AWA )
GPA - 3.0 ( India Non IIT )

Post my MBA i look forward to work in the auto industry although in a different role.

My Short term goal after an MBA is to enter into the product management / operations management in the automotive industry and formulate the strategies for business development of the auto

companies in the BRIC countries.
In long term I look to rise to a senior management role like a chief strategy officer in the auto company and help identify the next growth avenues for the

company and push for auto industry consolidation


On the extra curricular I was associated with an NGO, teaching kids for 3 years and now I am establishing a CSR department in my new

company. I will be the representative of my company to the NGO. I am also a member of the Net Impact and take care of the Net at Work initiatives of the chapter.
I have also presented many

whitepapers and presentations on business strategy of auto companies in China and India
I plan to apply to UCLA, Ross, Haas, McCombs, USC Marshall, Rotman

Do you think I have a fair chance of making any to these schools? Do you think I should improve my GMAT score given that my profile resembles to the ubiquitous Indian IT Male?

Can somebody also evaluate US vs Canada scenario, given the fact that canada is much friendly in terms post employment prospects for international students.

Thanks in advance for your feedback.

Hi, ajayawanti,

From the information you provided, it does seem that you would have a chance at the programs you listed. Your GMAT score is in the range of what you need for these programs. Your GPA is on the lower end, but possibly still in range for most programs. If you want to offset that GPA further, you could retake the GMAT to make sure the admissions committee doesn’t have any questions about your ability to handle the academic rigors of business school. Your career goals flow well from your current experience. It is going to be important for you to tell a compelling story to differentiate you from similar applicants. You will want to demonstrate your skills/experiences to date - it seems like you have a lot that is relevant. You also want to use your NGO and other community service experience to highlight your skills and show your passions. You will also want to clearly demonstrate why your target programs are a good fit for you. Articulating this effectively will help to set you apart from others with similar backgrounds. If you are looking for schools recommendations in Canada, you could look at Queen’s University or University of Toronto as a starting point.

Good luck!
