Profile evaluation : Entrepreneur Gmat 700 [#permalink] New post 09 Nov 2011, 09:46
hi
Kindly look into my profile and suggest colleges where I have a realistic chance

Graduation
Btech: CGPA 7/10
National Institute of Technology Kurukshetra (NITs are only after IITs in reputation)

GMAT 700 awa 4 :(

Work ex :2.5 years as on date
I run my own ayurvedic pharma firm.We grow and plants with medicinal value and process them into ayurvedic medicines and market all across india.
I have 30 full time employees under me
our sales are over 20 Lacs per annum
we handle a land bank of 10 acres
this is not our family business but I started this firm after graduating from college(Most of the land is leased from small farmers)


my objective is to grow my firm to an export oriented company selling alternative medicines and natural beauty products in USA and Europe. I am looking for an mba program with emphasis on Entrepreneurship and which has a strong brand name and provides good networking opportunities which would help me get funds for expanding this business

Kindly suggest schools I can apply to
I was thinking about DUKE, UCLA, ROSS. Are these schools right for me kindly suggest more schools where I have a realistic chance

You have a very good profile and a successful startup. Entrepreneurs are always in demand. If you write decent essays, you should definitely get an interview call at all the three schools (DUKE, UCLA, ROSS) you mentioned. If I were you, I would aim slightly higher than those schools. Boston is strong in Pharma. Add atleast MIT into the list. Write to me if you need more help. Good luck!

Those are good schools, also look at Haas. One thing you will need to be ready to explain is how you can spend two years away from a successful business to go to school. The most successful entrepreneurs never even go to b-school because they are too busy with killing it in their business! I agree that it's a good idea to go back to school, but make sure you have a well thought out strategy and reasoning for how your business can survive without it's CEO and founder.

I would rate UCLA over Duke as the California startup scene is much better than North Carolina. This matters come graduation time or if you get side tracked and launch a business while in school. Both are great schools though.

I agree that West coast is better startup environment overall, but Duke has good opportunites for pharma with Duke hospital and Research Triangle Park nearby.
