Profile Evaluation for MBA & MIM [#permalink] New post 24 Aug 2012, 12:07
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?

i think you should make your decision after carefully considering how you ll be able to present yourself to the adcom....

further the two courses are contrasting in many aspects

mim is generally called pre experience mba ..
as the average age of students at these schools is around 22..

so if you prove yourself to the adcom ..go for mba..

and i think for further evaluation of your profile you should give details like gpa , extracurriculars, internships etc..

gmat alone cannot determine chances of getting into college..

there are people with score in 600 but getting into harvard...

I was wondering what colleges should I target in all the different categories

Post MBA Concentration: Consulting, Marketing, General Management

Colleges who received my score till now:
University of Pittsburgh, Katz
Rotterdam Erasmus General Mgmt
HEC Paris, MIM
Vlerick Leuven
York Schulich

I selected my target schools on the basis of these 3 factors:
1) Cost to attend MBA
2) Reputation and Ranking
3) Employment post MBA

What are the other schools I should target? What is my chance this year at York Schulich, Texas A & M and BYU? Should i wait for 1 more year so that European colleges mainly in Germany also opens door for me? I am more keen on doing an MBA but i will also apply to MIM from HEC and Erasmus because of the reputation of these programs.

Kindly do the profiling and i look forward to hear from you.

Thanks in Advance

though i am not a person from any consultancy to exactly to tell you about individual college


but here are things which i think you should know...

your high school and +2 marks are not necessary as they are not considered..
when you give details of your work , try to expose the sort of leadership roles played rather then the kind of work you have done...
you have good chances which is explicit from your profile but thing is how good are you at putting them together and narrate to adcom..

i am also from india, a.p, visakhapatnam..

let me tell you about the coincidence,, even i have received pm scholarship,, in my grad in pharmacy..

finished my course this year and looking forward to apply for mim in europe and mms at duke
