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).

Hi there,

It sounds like your academic background is strong and GMAT should turn out well. Your work experience could be stronger; have you considered working for another year in a full-time role that would provide additional experiences that would facilitate your future career? Do you have a plan for your short and long term goals after the degree? That is important for MBA applications. It is difficult to provide school suggestions without additional info on what you are interested in exactly, but I would suggest reviewing our free e-book on selecting your target schools: http://info.mbamission.com/Selecting-Yo ... ram-E-Book.

Hi

I decided not to work for another year because I didn't like the kind of profiles I was getting. I thought if I can add a good degree to my resume (MIM, Msc or MBA ), it can help me to change my industry. After MBA/MIM/Msc I want to work in consulting industry ( finance and risk consulting) and in the longer run want to be part of Private equity or venture capital industry.

Let me know if you need more information. Thanks.

Thanks for the additional info. The challenge is that with only 23 months of full time experience, it will be difficult to get into many of the well known MBA programs in Europe in particular, and many in the US as well. For the career paths you mentioned an MBA would likely be the most versatile and recognized option, but generally MBA programs prefer the additional experience more than a masters in management. The other factor that makes it difficult to specify schools is that the GMAT is still fairly unknown... a 680 could make a difference vs a 720 for example on where you should apply. Have a look at the Financial Times Global MBA rankings if you have not yet, to get a feel for types of schools and how they are ranked on a global scale (for MBA), and I also encourage you to try to do some more research about the career plan you have after grad school and what degree and/or programs would best facilitate that.
