Profile Evaluation - Indian Non IT, Family Business [#permalink] New post 13 Aug 2014, 22:28
Would be glad to receive a feedback on the profile.

Undergraduate Degree - Dual Degree (Btech and Technology Management in electronics)

University : Non IIT but one of the top 25 in India.

Undergraduate GPA : 3.41

GMAT : 720 (V41 Q48)

WorkEx
Leading FMCG in the supply chain (demand management) 2010 to 2011
Working with accounts like Walmart and Metro

Family Business into design and manufacturing of industrial equipments (2011 To Present)

Joined as a new product development manager successfully developed a new line of products.

Today in charge of the product development / production / marketing and sales for the new line of products.

Why MBA : to expand beyond a product management / technology management to a more general management role. To get global exposure before taking additional responsibilities in the business.

Long Term Goal : To start an own business / as a part of the existing business in the field of wearable electronics. To expand the current industrial product business internationally.

Short Term Goal : To work in a corporation or as a consultant in the strategic product management / international business area.

Gave GMAT last year very close to the round 2 deadline and applied to top 10 MBA institutes in the US. But looking back I feel that I was not able to do justice to my research, application and essays and would like to reapply to a few this year.

I am looking for a more practical experience (case studies, projects) rather than pure theory in terms of academics.

Some questions

1. Which colleges should I target based on the profile.
2. Should I bother reapplying to top colleges like HBS, Wharton etc.
3. Should I go in for a 1 year MBA or a 2 year full time MBA?

A quick reply would be appreciated.

Hello,

First, probably both 2- and 1-year programs could meet your needs; each has its benefits and drawbacks. The 2-year would give you an internship opportunity in consulting, whereas the 1-year would move you along quicker (and less expensively) toward your goals.

Kellogg strikes me as a good potential reasonable-reach program, and you might consider Columbia’s 18-month January-start program as well (reasonable reach). Darden would be a great target as well, given its case-study emphasis. I do think HBS and Wharton are perhaps out of reach – other excellent programs are within closer reach and applying to them would be a better use of your time. For example, Ross which has a strong experiential focus and is good for consulting, and for closer to on-par, Kenan-Flagler at UNC.
