Indian Male, Age- 26
Work Experience- 5+ Years in total.
1 year in the financial services industry as a Financial Analyst and 4+ years as a Senior Manager- Business Development & Strategy at a diversified firm with interests in Textiles, Power and Higher education (most recent job). Also Co-Founded an internet venture in 2006 which I later sold off to the other partners making a decent profit on investment.
College- Cardiff University, Business School. Degree- BSc in Accounting & Finance Result- Upper 2.1 Degree. Topped year 1 and scored a first class in both year 1 and 2 but because of my fathers untimely death during Year 3 I had issues with my final year grades and hence the upper 2:1. Graduated in 2008.
Treasurer of the Indian society at the B-school. Developed the Corporate social responsibility charter for my current firm with special focus on education and sanitation (topics close to my heart). Working with the biggest environmental NGO in India on part time basis.
Target Schools- LBS, INSEAD, Kellogg 1Y, Booth, ISB, Darden, NUS and Nanyang
Reason for pursuing and MBA is to change field of work. Post MBA goal is to move into Management Consulting. Plan to gain some experience in the consulting field through a job/internship before the start of my MBA.
I think my application might look a little weak seeing how I haven't worked with a REALLY big multinational firm. The firm I'm working for has revenues of over $100m though. Working at a smaller firm allowed me to take up more responsibility relatively early on. I think through my essays I will be able to convey why I'll be a good candidate at my target schools.
