Profile Evaluation : GMAT-680, 2.5 yrs as Consultant in KPMG [#permalink]
06 Aug 2014, 11:30
I would request you to please evaluate my current profile and let me know the best possible colleges (Mainly among ISB, SP Jain Mumbai - PGDM program, US and UK B-schools) in which I might have good chances.
Secondly, I have planned to set up a social enterprise and I have worked enough on that B-plan, that I will be able to present that B-plan, if I get an interview call. Also if considered appropriate, I might also mention a brief summary about the same in my application. - Do you think this might help me in any way during my selection process, considering that may b-schools nowadays encourage entrepreneurship among their students.
