Below are the details of my profile. Can you please help me to decide, which colleges should I apply. I am thinking of applying to both Masters in Management( Europe ) and MBA courses ( North America and Asia ).

Class X - 86% ( with merit certificate in social science, which is given to top 0.01% students )
Class XII - 87% ( with merit certificate in economics, which is given to top 0.01% students )
Graduation - 69% ( In second year came first in a class of 70 )
Post Graduation - MA in economics ( Distance Learning. Did this course while working. )
GMAT - Scoring 680-700 in practice test. Targeting 720+

Work Ex - 23 months in Service Industry. Though was part of the subsidiary of one of the biggest banks, but since I was working in back office my profile was not good. Left job after 23 months as was not happy with my profile and currently working part time in my cousins business.

Extra Curricular - Not much. Took part in sports and debates in schools, but don't have any certificates. Have been involved with an NGO twice ( don't have certificate of this either).

Thanks for the posting.

There are many great programs to apply to since you pretty much have no geographic preferences.

As for your candidacy, it is strong but being employed in a family business is a challenging situation and needs to be carefully presented. Also, you are in a competitive demographic so competition at any competitive program is going to be high. I also hope that you score above a 720 on your GMAT -- as anything below this level will make you less competitive of a candidate.

I recommend that you consider the following schools:

North America: Ross, UNC, Tepper, Rice, Notre Dame, Emory, Toronto, Queens,
Europe: IE, IESE, Manchester, Rotterdam,
Asia: Melbourne, HKUST -- and of course IBS and the more competitive ISM's

Good luck.

Thanks for the reply.

I am not keeping any geographic preference at the moment as I want to look at all the available options.

Was surprised to see Toronto's( Rotman ) name in the schools that you have mentioned. But since you have mentioned it , I want to know what are my chances at Schulich school of business. As I have read they both have similar reputation in Canada.

The European schools that you have mentioned for Master in Management(MIM) seems pretty good. Can you tell me what are my chances at HEC paris grande ecole program. I have read that it is very respectable degree. Also can you tell, what are my chances at ESADE, ESCP, ESSEC masters in management program.

One last question, since my undergraduate degree is not from good university and my work ex is in the service sector, which program will be more better for me Master in Management (which is pre-experience degree ) or MBA. And as I will be applying in second round, any advice how can I improve my profile?

Sorry but I can't figure out which college you exactly mean by lBS and lSM

Thanks again for your earlier response.
