Profile evaluation-young candidate [#permalink] New post 08 Feb 2012, 10:38
My name is Adhithya and iam from India.I have been working Tata Consulatncy services(an IT major)since the last 1.3 years.I want to switch over from technical side to investment banking due to which i decided to give GMAT.Scored a horrible 640 last october but improved it upto680 (q=47,v=35) on feb 6.
I have a strong academic background.I have always been among the toppers(most often stood first)in my school and college and I topped my engineering stream as well.I stood 14th in my state during my 12th exams.
Iam quite aware that my low workex and low gmat(standardised tests have been my bane always) can seriously bring down my chances.But still want to get an opinion from you.
1)Do i stand a chance in US top 20 bschools or for that matter european B-schools such as IE-spain,HEC paris,IESE etc.
2)I heard about master in managemnet courses.Are these more effective than an MBA and if yes,do i have some chances in those courses.
Thanks in advance

I dont think it will be difficult to get into one of the schools mentioned in your list. But, that might not be best of you. If I were you, I would build few more years of experience and aim for a top school. If you are planning to get into an investment banking career, go for a top bschool.

If possible, take up GMAT and get 700 or above. If you cannot, thats fine. It is not end of the world. Your profile means much more to schools than your GMAT score.

Get a year or two international experience and take up few leadership roles. Good luck!

Thanks a lot interviewbay for your great suggestions
Your suggestion for waiting for some more years and getting international experence before applying is very accurate.But,since at present I have a technical profile,it would be very difficult for me to switch to core finance companies(things are a bit rigid here:(
Many banks and financial institutions expect a basic MBA degree.So,my plan is to gt my first MBA from some good EU,singapore,US 11-20 ranked schools and maybe get my second MBAafter say 5-6 yrs from Ivy league institutions.
Please do let me know if Iam planning on the right track?

Thanks a lot for your great inputs
Really appreciate your time
