Hi!!!

A brief of my profile:

Age: 34 years
Nationality: Indian
GMAT: Yet to appear
Graduation: B. Sc (H) Physics in 1998
PGDM: Distance learning programme-2 years duration-in 2002

Work Experience: 7 years of Sales experience in FMCG companies at the executive level and 2-1/2 years in media company at managerial level

Extra Curricular:
• Community Service through the CSR activities of my company - Organized blood donation camps, etc.
• An active event organizer throughout my life - right from school till today. Was a member of Organizing Committee for Annual Tech. & Cultural fest at college.

Future Plans:
Looking forward to an Executive MBA programme from IIMs, ISB as I feel that I am stuck as far as my professional growth is concerned.

I am skeptical in the following areas:

1. Am I eligible for GMAT? If I do, I expect to get 720-730. Should I devote my next 3-4 months on GMAT?

2. Do I have the USP to get into the programs mentioned above, considering I don't have excellent academic as well as work profile? Request you to do the thorough evaluation of my profile and suggest if I should go for it?

3. What schools should I focus on?

Looking forward to a positive response.

Thank You.
Best Regards,
Gaurav

Hi Gaurav,

Let me chip in my 2 cents here..

1. As far as GMAT is concerned, you are definitely eligible. However, the question should be if you are eligible for an international MBA program as BSc. is a 3 year degree course instead of the standard 4 year degree course as required by B-schools across the world. I'm not sure whether your 2 years of study at a distance llearning program would fill that gap. An expert's help will be appreciated here.

2. Well, if you are eligible, considering your over 9 years of experience, I believe you should be focussing on 1 year European programs, which tend to admit applicants with more experience. Again, an expert may elaborate on this.

Good luck.

Best Regards,
KUNAL

Thanks for your post to answer your questions:

1) If you pay the fee and show up at the right time, you're eligible to take the GMAT. I don't know if it is required for your target programs. If it is required, you shoudl prepare for it. I can't advise you how much time you need. That varies from individual to individual.
2) The information you provided above is way too superficial and general to provide a USP. The USP would come from elements of your profile that you don't share with much of your competition. The fact that you aren't an IT engineer is somewhat distinctive.
3) I am not familiar enough with the IIMS to comment.

I'm sorry I can't be of more help with your specific questions. However, if you are interested in an EMBA program, please see Applying to Top EMBA Programs.

Best,
Linda
