I am a prospective Class of 2016 applicant for the full-time program. I am interested in the Full-time program so i can switch my career into strategy consulting. I fully understand how important an internship is for career-switchers.

GMAT: 730 (Q49, V40, AWA 4, IR 8) (3rd Attempt) 640 (Q47/V32) in both my earlier attempts. GPA: 70% - Instrumentation Engineering. (From a non-IIT University)
Work Experience: 12+ yrs Finance System Implementation lead in multiple projects with some highly recognizable companies in many sectors. (FMCG/Energy/Telecom/Leasing) Led the finance IT team in merging two businesses of a Global FMCG Company. Architecting the systems/process implementation for retail stores (US & UK) for branded items of a Global FMCG Company.

Led a team of 10 students in the Literacy awareness campaigns during my undergrad. We imparted basic literacy skills to economically underprivileged women who were working as daily agricultural labor. The training program was conducted in the evenings to ensure their livelihood is not affected.
ST/LT Goals : Work in the strategy consulting for 2-4 years Post-MBA and transition into a general management role and grow in the organization. Prefer to move to the south/south west after MBA. School location is not much of a concern. Support to young family is also a consideration. (Wife & a 15 months old son)
Target Schools: Tuck (EA) - Love this school. Small class-size, in the woods, heavy General Management focus, and very strong into Consulting & Finance. Duke (Rd1) Ross (Rd1) McCombs/Darden (Rd2) Johnson (Rd2)
