Hello Aritro9782, thanks for your question.

Since you are among many IT professionals from India, you might look to differentiate your work experience by focusing on your leadership experience (and it sounds like you have some great stories, in this regard). Can you draw upon “moments” when you influenced individuals and organizations, drove results, took initiative?

In terms of your extracurriculars, your university/student activities are likely too far in the past to write about. I’d focus on the NGO and Toastmaster’s International experiences to also call out your teamwork and leadership skills.

In terms of your post-MBA goals, paint a picture that cohesively ties together your past, present, and future. Moreover, it is crucial to demonstrate to the admissions committees that your desired career path necessitates an MBA. Do you really need an MBA to transition to business development? If so, clearly show us the gaps/obstacles that stand in your way.

Best of luck,
Brian
