Profile Evaluation for MBA & MIM [#permalink] New post 24 Aug 2012, 12:06
Dear Sir
I am Chandan MISHRA from India. I am a mechanical engineer and did the engineering from Delhi College of Engineering(Top 10 in India). I score 64% in my Bachelors.I am currently working in Alstom India Ltd as a field operations engineer.My total experience up to now is 14 months . I do have to face a lot of hardships during my day to day work life so i want to change my career path. I heard somewhere that adcoms do give a bit of importance to diversity. Since the job is constructing a boiler so i do have to check the daily material receipt, the materials to be used on that particular day, the work progress, reading the design and giving the instructions to workers and if any problem arises then contacting the engineering or process department. Since this job is not even remotely related to business field and is much more on a technical side, will the adcom give value to my work experience. My current supervisor and my one professor are ready to give LOR for me. My target schools are York Schulich, Vlerick Leuven, Sauder, BYU , Katz. I wish to apply to Full time MBA programme for the September 2013 intake. By then I will have 2 years of experience. My GMAT score is 680. For example Edhec, HEC, ESSEC. I have done many projects at my college level and also took part in various extracurricular activities. I am a part of Alstom Corporate team and was captain of my College Cricket Team. I hope you would do the profiling and tell me whether i am a suitable candidate to apply for the full time MBA ? Or should i apply to MIM at this score? What will be more beneficial for me?

Hey there dude,
Thanks for writing us!
I think that with your list of schools you mentioned, you can apply for an MBA for the September 13 intake. You will be a bit on the low side experience-wise, so you DO have to take that into consideration and figure out how you can address that in y our application (i.e. by showing them that you actually have more experience than initially it seems). coming from a Tech background in of itself is no problem at all. Plenty of folks do and get in. But you do need to highlight the non-tech parts of your experience. If you write essays about building boilers, the schools will not be impressed, so focus more on the achievements, on your teamwork, on project management, that sort of thing. MiMs would also be good programs for you as you are on the borderline. But no one says you have to apply ONLY to MiMs or MBAs, why not simply apply to a good mix of both???

There aren't any.
what I meant is that when you decide which programs to apply to, there's no need to EXCLUSIVELY apply to one type of program OR the other. You can apply for both types of programs.
