I would like to start my MBA in Sep 09, but so far I have not started my application because I took this decision very recently. I have just completed my GMAT and TOEFL is scheduled for 10.01.09 therefore I will probably not be able to meet the 2nd round of most Business Schools that all end around 05.01.09. Taking into account that I want to apply for the top schools in Europe, but will be only part of the 3rd round, I would be really interested if application for only these schools make sense. Currently, I am considering the following schools:
- London Business School: 08/2009
- INSEAD: 09/2009 (if this is not possible anymore 01/2010)
- IMD: 01/2010
- Cambridge Judge: 09/2009
Though, to be honest, I think that I will only apply to the first 3 schools as time for the application is so limited.
740 GMAT (Q47, V44), AWA results not yet received
31y old, German (father is from India)
German Diploma in computer science (german grade 1,1 on scale from 1,0 - 5,0, should probably be equivalent tio 4,0?)
Current Position: Manager in one of the big-2 global IT consulting companies
In the last years a led a team of ~25 persons, did financial planning & mgmt. for a team of ~60 persons and a lot of tech work on IT delivery deals
- international experience: worked with delivery centers in Europe, worked on a project in Rumania. But I always lived, worked and studied in Germany (though I personally like to travel)
- extracurricular activities: recruiting for the firm?
Could you eventually provide me some tips for the application? Should I apply to one "safety" school? Is round 3 still ok or should I postpone my plans to next year (which would not fit into my personal plans for the next years to be honest).
Thanks a lot!
