Hi, I am a 25 year old Indian looking to apply for 2012 start.
I've graduated from India's top private engineering school with GPA of 6.14/10 (Dual Degree- BE Civil Engineering and MSc Physics). I am writing GMAT in May.
I am working in one of India's most respected companies (a big Indian brand but not highly recognized worldwide). I have worked for almost four years, have received three promotions and am currently selected as a participant in the organization's Management Leadership Program. Though the company is large, I have been associated with a joint venture (Malaysian partner organization) since its inception which has about 50 employees of varied nationalities. The work environment is similar to that of a start-up wherein you play multiple roles rather than be a specialist. I currently lead a group of five and have about 6 months of international work ex (cumulative at various instances in Qatar, Singapore and Malaysia). I am working in the Oil & Gas sector and have worked in Business Development before moving into Project Management.
I have above average ECs at university (have served in a leadership position for a year) and decent ECs post graduation. I am also currently assisting (in the areas of business development) two startups in the education sector during my free time.
My short term goals are working in the consulting/ event management/ project management areas. My long term goal ofcourse is being an enterpreneur (Education/ Entertainment industry).
I am not fully convinced for an MBA right now, and I am also contemplating studying MS (Project Management/ Technology Management) versus getting an MBA.
I would appreciate any feedback on my profile as well some guidance on school selection.
Thanks in advance.
