Profile evaluation - GMAT 660 [#permalink] New post 07 Jul 2012, 22:49
Hi,

Could you please help me in evaluating my profile.

I wrote GMAT and scored 660 (Q-49, V-31)

I did B.Tech from Computer Science in 2010.
I have 2yrs of IT experience in Accenture Services Private Ltd.
I volunteered several programs in Greenpeace.
I have some leadership experience in my college.
I was the troop leader for the Bharat scouts and Guides Rashtrapathi camp and received the certificate for the same from the President of India.
I secured 81 rank in the national Maths Olympiad.
Won many accolades(First and runners up) in several inter-college competitions.
I am working on an application development for Automated performance appraisal systems development as an initiative other than what i do at office.


Am planning to change my domain from S/W to Finance.
I want to know whether I should go for 1yr/2yr/Execitve MBA/MS in Finance.
Which all universities shall i apply in and in which all do i stand a good change to get through? My preference is ISB hyderabad.
Would I get any scholarship for MBA in US universities? If yes, which universities should I apply for?

Thanks in advance for the help

Hi, Sam,

Thanks for your post. With only two years of experience, you are going to need to be able to clearly articulate your career goals and what skills and experiences you already have that serve as a foundation for this career switch. You will also need to demonstrate your leadership and maturity since you are under the average years of work experience for MBA programs. Most likely, you would want to pursue a 2 year program as the others are more geared toward professionals with more years of experience who want to move up in their current career. It is good to demonstrate your accomplishments in community service, but make sure you focus on examples within 3 years of applying.

In terms of which programs are a good fit for you, you need to think about what you want to learn, any geography preferences, teaching style, size of program, etc. Once you have determined your criteria, finding the right program fit will be easier. You will also want to look at programs in which your GMAT score is in their range – check their sites as this information will be available there.

Good luck,
Susan Kaplan
