Profile Evaluation: NY Investment Banker + 690 GMAT [#permalink] New post 19 Feb 2014, 21:19
Hi Stacy,

It is my sincere request that you please take out two minutes to kindly evaluate my profile. My details are as follows:

Work Experience & Education:

1. 1 year: Worked as an Analyst in New York in the Investment Banking Department of a bulge bracket investment bank. I topped my Analyst class in India and thus was promoted to this role.

2. 3 years: Worked as an Analyst in the Middle office of the same bulge bracket investment bank in India. Apart from being top of my class across the 3 years, I was also part of the recruiting team, Head of the training & development team, and Head of the internal newsletter committee.

3. 1 year: Worked for a leading semiconductor chip designing MNC company as a design engineer. Got the opportunity to work with cross border teams on various projects key clients.


1. CFA II and FRM cleared

2. MBA from a Top 10 Business school in India

3. BE from a Top 10 Engineering school in India

Reason for pursuing a 2nd MBA: I did my first MBA just out of college so had very little business experience and almost all my class members were Indian with not a lot of diversity in terms of background. Now, I aim to start my own venture in Asia Pacific region or lead a global business unit. To fulfill my goal I need an education that not only offers a global business education but also supplements with a diverse class profile. Hence the pursuit of a 2nd MBA.

Achievements & Positions of Responsibility

Professional Achievements:
1. Promoted to the role of a senior analyst in the New York from the Middle Office in India based on my performance over the course of three years
2. Executed 4 deals each over $1b size and 2 of them were cross border deals
3. Head of Training & Development for the Bank's Middle Office
4. Member of Recruiting committee that visits key B-school campuses across India to recruit candidates for the Middle office
5. Head of the internal newsletter committee of the Investment Bank

Academic & Co-curricular Achievements
1. Founder & Head of the Entrepreneurship cell at my Bschool: Awarded certificate of leadership by the National Entrepreneurship network of India for my work over two years
2. Ranked among the Top 10% during my MBA in India
3. Ranked 3rd in my engineering college
3. Chief organizer of technical festival at my engineering school

GMAT: 690 (IR: 5; QA: 50 (87%); VA: 34 (70%))

Target schools & Courses:
2. LBS Masters in Finance
3. Oxford Said MBA
5. ISB

Kindly let me know if I stand a chance for my target schools.

Thanks for your time and patience Stacy. Appreciate it.

Hi Road2Ivy,

Thanks for your post. About your candidacy, I recommend you read this case study of a candidate who sought a 2nd MBA and was accepted into a top program. It should provide insight for your candidacy: ... econd-mba/

For your GMAT, it's important to remember that on your MBA application your highest GMAT score is self-reported. For this reason, there isn't any harm in taking the test again, as admissions teams will focus on your best score. We normally recommend that applicants who believe they can improve their score by 30+ points take the exam again.

If you'd like, we also provide free 30 minute phone consultations here:
