Good Day,
Can you please evaluate my profile and let me know of my chances in INSEAD and other top programs which offer International Business.I am currently working as a navigating third officer in a European Shipping Company .I have been in this role for the past 2 years now. In this role, I lead a team of typically 6-8 ppl of different nationalities in handling logistics and other heavy duty ship activities, apart from this I'm also in charge of the navigation aspect of the ship during my watch. I have taken my GMAT recently and scored 730, Post MBA I want to pursue a career on shore,I'm basically targeting a role in strategy or in supply chain/logistics in a large multinational corporate firm.I am presently targeting schools in Singapore. Can you let me know if I have a shot at INSEAD and the other schools. Or if there are other schools in the US or Europe,where I stand a chance,given my background.
Apart from sailing,I have around (4-5 months paid leave in an year) in my vacation time I regularly work for an NGO,and teach languages for underprivileged school children in my locality.I speak fluent English and passable French.

Please Advice .

Yukrant

Hey there Yukrant,

First of all, congrats on that fantastic GMAT dude! 730! Looks veeeeery good.

Overall your profile looks very nice. You have an interesting job with some leadership, and something that will set you apart from most Indian candidates. Your goals make sense too. A few things are still not entirely clear to me, like your UG degree and GPA, your achievements in the merchant marines, as well as your progress (promotions and so on)... and these things can change more or less the strength of your profile.

But basically I think you should have a shot at all three of the schools above. You can consider a few other schools in Asia if you are interested: CEIBS, HKUST, and so on.

In Europe and the US you would also have a shot, and there are plenty of schools that are great. Its more a question of what you want, where you want to work and live after you graduate, and so on.

Good Day Jon,

Thanks a lot for your feedback. Regarding my UG degree, I hold a Bachelor Of Engineering Degree in Marine from BIT, with a GPA of 7.3. That translates to a First Class with Distinction.
Regarding my career, I started off as a trainee dual officer and my UG degree was sponsored by the same company. After completion of degree and after obtaining a license, I got promoted to a third navigating officer within the organisation.After two years in this role, I got recommended for a further promotion to serve as a second navigating officer.
Apart from the navigation role, I am a trained engineer as well, and I have the experience of working with Marine Engines.

My main concern is what are the kind of programs or schools I should be targeting in the US or EU??? Post MBA,I don't mind working anywhere in the world.
Any word on this,will be a great help to me.

Thanks,
Yukrant

Hey there Yukrant,
Well on the positive side, you have the 730, an interesting career and real leadership.
On the challenges side, you are still an Indian (sort of Tech) male, candidate with good but not great grades, from a good but not IIT college.


Very roughly, if you were to apply to US schools I think you would be good at schools ranked 10-30, which is great really. Now those schools + Europe + Asian schools may be too many, and you are gonna need to find some sort of criteria to whittle down your list, cause there are plenty of good schools out there.
