I like to have an evaluation of my profile please.
I am Greek, living in the UK for the last 9 years. I am a Computer Science graduate from the university of Sussex.
GMAT: haven't taken the exam yet, but I would aim for 700+ (although I don't know how much a lower GMAT, say 620, would impact to my application)
Bachelors - Computer Science with Hons 2:2
Masters - Multimedia Applications and Virtual Environments (Computer Science) Hons
First in both final year projects in BSc and MSc, however I will try to compensate the low grades with a high GMAT score.
I have been working in IT since late 2008 as a software developer, starting my career from the ground up and taking some initiatives in the companies I was working for to increase performance / income. I also have IT certifications (Scrum Master) which is essential for a team leader in IT, and have been team leader in various teams.
My primal reason for an MBA is to explore my options for a career change in Finance or Corporate or even creating my own consulting business, maybe as an Analyst or in Risk Management.
I am 29 years old but thinking of applying for the 2014 class.
Extra Curricular Activities:
I have been a band leader back in my uni years, a coach in the basketball team for a couple of years and a member of the Greek community organizing events and providing information.
Nowadays I am into trading in my free time.
Looking to get into one of these schools for FT MBA
LBS, Insead, HEC, Imperial or maybe HBS.
Are there any areas that shout "I need significant improvement" ?
Thanks for your time and help.
Thanks and Regards
