profile evaluation for chemical engineer [#permalink] New post 27 Mar 2007, 09:12
hi paul.

here is my profile

Stats : 28/Male/Indian

Education B.S. chemical engineering from india -4.0 GPA
M.S. Chemical engineering Texas A&M (top 15 engg. school) GPA-3.9

Experience: total 5 years as chemical engineer
2 years in india's largest listed company (energy, oil and gas sector)
3 years in fortune 500 oil & gas engineering company,houston (company is part of Dow jones sustainabilty index)

GMAT : score expected 680-710

goal after MBA : to go in general management in fortune 20 energy companies and 10 years down the road to become part of senior management.

alternatively, can go to consulting company as energy domain expert and then switch to energy operating company.

in short, energy and oil / gas is my passion throughout my life and that s where i want to be all my life.

even rightnow, i have very good knowledge of energy business and future trends etc. and can discuss with any energy expert in this area.

activities:

secretary of professional chemical engg. organisation, organising secretary of technical conference during undergrad

active member of NGO related to helping poor children in third world countries

secretary of indian club at grad school

currently heading a technical committee for Young Engineers Club in my company.

positive aspects :

got my both degrees with 100% scholarship . not a single penny from my parents.

come from very disadavantaged families from india (can elaborate in essay)

became entrepreneur at age of 7 .

consistent academic record

"exceed expectations" rating in the job. can get very good two reco letters.

exceptionally good knowledge about energy industry.

negative aspects:

no supervision experience whatsoever. highly technical job .

indian tech profile

not good at writing essays (written english is average)


Questions:

1. which universities should i target based on my goals

2. any universities which will prepare me better for energy specialisation

3. University of houston (third tier) business school gives specialisation in energy concentration. i m leaning on that instead of poor ranking. i m also based in houston and it is energy capital of the world. do u think poor ranking will affect my chances to get into top companies.

thanks in advance.

engineer,

Your energy-focused profile helps you stand out from the pack. Aside from Houston, you should also consider Texas Austin and other Texas schools such as SMU and Rice. Given your energy goals and the nature of the energy industry (where MBAs and business school brand counts for less) an MBA from Texas business schools would be no disadvantage to you, indeed, would probably be valued locally more than a degree from a "prestigious" school that didn't prepare you for the energy industry.

Hope this helps,
