Profile Evaluation - 31 yr old Engineering professional [#permalink] New post 27 Nov 2011, 15:28
Hello,
I would really appreciate if you can review my profile and provide me with suggestions.
I am a 31 year old male born and brought up in India, now working in the US. I can start attending a program MBA in 2013.
My experience details:

* 5 years of work experience (and still working) in one of the world’s best heavy engineering companies, as a product development engineer. Promoted once. This job is in the US Midwest.
* 3 years of full time work experience between BS and MS years, in India’s one of the best Automotive companies. Promoted once. This was a product support engineer job.
* Internship experience, both in India and in US, again in reputed mechanical engineering/automotive companies. (8 months each)

GMAT

* first attempt 660 (Q45, V35) AWA 5.0 ----- in Dec 2010
* second attempt 680 (Q45, V38) AWA 5.0 --------- ----- in March 2011

Colleges attended

* Michigan Tech University | MS in Mechanical Engineering | GPA 3.95/4.0 | Graduated in May 2007
* Pune University, India | BS in Mechanical Engineering | Approx GPA 3.6/4.0 (we get percentage scores, and I scored more than 66%, which is considered a very good grade) | Graduated in Jun 2002

Extra Curricular achievements

* Cleared MENSA’s IQ test, and was an active MENSA member in the past
* I attend a local Toastmasters Club, and have been a vice president of the club for two years
* Coached engineering students during graduate studies
* Volunteered for a non governmental spiritual organization in India. Helped organize meditation workshops, and did event management. (But this was more than 5 years in the past)

My Target Programs

* Chicago Booth
* Kellogg
* Stanford
* Duke

Post MBA goal

* Longer term: Vice president in an engineering, automotive, or related company. This job will need strong engineering, commercial and business skills.
* Shorter term: Try a stint in consulting and then move into management role in an engineering company.

Looking at my age and qualifications, please suggest whether I should instead apply for a part time MBA? (For part time I am targeting either Booth or Kellogg)

Thanks for considering my request

I believe that your chances of acceptance will be higher in the part-time programs than in the traditional full-time ones (though Stanford does not have a part-time option). You may also wish to consider the executive education options for each of these. Your age and GMAT score make you a good fit with those options.
