Hi,

You have robust profile, the strong areas in your profile are good GMAT, remarkable corporate exposure along with international exposure. As per your profile and GMAT score I would recommend you to target also Kellogg, Wharton, UCLA, Duke and Ross Business School. As the average GMAT Score for these B Schools fall in between 650-790 range, so don’t worry much about retaking the GMAT. Visit http://www.general-ed.com/chances-of-bschool to try your chances for top b-schools.

You are in perfect stage of career and around 5 - 7 years of average work experience is what most B Schools look for, the next step is to cleverly prepare for questions like rationale behind applying for a specific B school and focus more on application essays, recommendations and interview preparation.

Feel free to post any other query or concern that you might have.

Regards,
Neha Singh

Hi Neha,

Thanks for reviewing my profile and proving encouragement. As you understand, doing an MBA from abroad is sometimes difficult for many us from financial point of view. For most of us, it requires years of financial planning. As GMAT score is valid for 3 years, in case I do MBA after a couple of years (with 11-12 years of experience), what are the colleges to opt for? I heard, some of the colleges discourage 11/12+ experiences just because that does not match up with the batch profile. Is it true? In that case what are the colleges to look for? Also, what are the chances of getting a scholarship for profile like me in top US/Europe B-Schools?

Thanks,
Director

Hi,

I think you should apply later this year for early rounds to be considered for scholarship opportunities. If you are planning to defer applying due to financial constraints then also you should apply for full time MBA programs in future, having more than 10 years of work experience will be an add on to your profile and will also make you diverse. After gaining 10+ years of work experience you can also look for applying to senior executive programs like INSEAD ILPSIE, LBS Sloan Masters in Leadership and Startegy, ISB - PGPMAX, and other senior executive programs in Kellogg, Wharton, MIT and IMD. For further discussion I can also connect you to one of our top b-school alumni for further discussion. So PM your number for further queries. Wish you all the best.

Neha Singh
