Hi,

This is Abhishek, I am an Indian - IT male, with a GMAT score of 700 and Work Ex of 24 months ( will be 30 months by the time of application). I am aiming for the 2014 intake.

I have pretty decent accads, I have done my Enigneering (Computer Science) from Vellore Institute of Technology ( amoung the top 10 Engineering Colleges in India). I have a GPA of 8.27. In college I took an active part in the vit quiz club and won several compititions.

Work EX:
Working with Cognizant since 24 months
Working as a Free Lancer at ATV(a local news channel) - at ATV I do web site development, program direction and also manage pragram teams
Community Service:
I take regular part in the Cognizant Outreach Programs
Also I am a part of a Local NGO and have been working in it since 2 years.

Achievements:
I have designed a web portal (prototype) for politicians called the Political network, and have presented it to the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh.

I am interested in MBA Information Management, as this is my field. My short term goals are to be able to understand the industry better and be able to participate on the business aspect of this industry and I have identified that I have raw managerial skills and these skills need to be polished and an MBA form a top school can help me do that.
In the long term I look to start my own technology company after getting enough insight and experience in the industry. When a business opportunity presents itself, I want to be ready in every way possible and grab it with both hands.

My target schools:
Warwick (UK)

Nanyang (Singapore)

Brigham Young University: Marriott

Georgia Institute of Technology
Texas A&M: Mays

Please let me know what are my chances of getting in these schools.
Your help is greatly appreciated.

Abhishek-

Thanks for your post. You have a great profile for an MBA in MIS or MGT of Technology, and I agree that the schools you have chosen seem like a good fit to that end. Georgia Tech's is a small program, with only around 75 fulltime students each year. For this reason, it is pretty competitive, but your background is a great match, so I would encourage you to apply. They also have a robust part time MBA program, which accesses the same faculty and facilities (and recruiters for that matter), so not sure if you can get a job in Atlanta and try for the PT MBA if the fulltime option does not present itself, but it would be a good way to get the GT MBA. As for Warwick and Nanyang, I would say these are possible but make sure you consider where you want to be working not just what you want to be doing post MBA. If your plan is to work stateside, you might reconsider the MBA from Nanyang. B-schools can be best leveraged when your network is close at hand and schools will want reassurance that international applicants can land the job at the end of the program. HB1 Visa will come up at BYU and GT, for example, so be prepared to speak to your plan there. OVerall I think your profile represents a good amount of innovation and teamwork, two very critical components of a winning application. Your maturity will be considered since your WE is on the lower side of the average and it would be good to try and bolster your leadership activity as well to improve your profile. Leadership both in your job and in the community is important to b-schools.

Hi,

Thank you for taking time and evaluating my profile. I understand that the Schools I am targeting are not that easy to get in. So considering a worst case scenario, ie., if I don't get into any of the schools I mentioned, could you please point out a couple of schools I can get in for sure.

Thank You

Regards,
K Abhishek
