Profile evaluation : school advice [#permalink] New post 23 Nov 2011, 19:41
Hello,

I am an Indian/Male/Engineer/31, 9+ years of work experience in Sales/Marketing - Consumer Products. I have worked with MNC's like Samsung and Carrier and have risen to level of Regional Head from Quality Assurance Analyst. I have a GMAT of 640 and my extra curriculur is average.

Considering my age and score, I understand it will be difficult to get into a decent 2-year MBA program. My main selling point is my career rise, therefore I have decided to concentrate only on 1 year full time programs (accelerated or regular). I am open to European/Asian/US universities but I would like to apply somewhere where placement is good and I have chances to be admitted with the score of 640 (I want to shortist safe universities mainly because my recommender will not write more than 5-6 applications).

Could someone please help in shortlisting one year decent MBA programs? Thanks.

Hello ruchi2012, thanks for your question.

One question: in terms of your career goals, do you wish to remain in the same industry? A one-year program would not be a good place if you happen to be a career changer. Just something to keep in mind.

In targeting suitable schools, a good place to start would be to compile a list of programs that have a mean or median GMAT score close to yours. You should be competitive here. My rule of thumb is that if your GMAT score falls within the middle 80% range at a school, you have a shot. Otherwise, it could be an uphill battle.

Best of luck!
Brian
