Hi,

Thank you in advance for taking out the time to evaluate my profile. I am sharing below my background so you can
i) evaluate my profile,
ii) identify strong areas and improvement areas (and subsequently how to address them)


a) Work Experience: I have 78 months of work experience in the IT and Consulting area. I currently work for one of the Big 3 IT and Consultancy company. I currently work as a project lead for a 7 member team and has been promoted twice in the organization.

b) International Work Experience: 10 months of consultancy and lead experience for a leading insurance client in U.S for a million dollar project.

c) GMAT: 660 (Q: 47, V:34)

d) Education:
I have
-a Bachelors in Computer Science Engineering with a GPA of around 3 to 3.2 with a first class with distinction
- Two technology certifications

e) Activities outside Profession:
- I have been an active organizing volunteer for the CSR wing of my organization and college for which I actively teach for school kids
- I have won two software presentation competitions during my college days.

f) Programs considered: Technology management in ISB ,NUS, Nanyang, S.P Jain.

g) Goals: I would like to work as a product / program manager for a product dev company.

Also please answer my question about my international exposure?. Is the exposure good enough for the target schools?. I may get an opportunity to work in U.S again as a consultant. can you please let me know whether working as a proj lead at offshore / as a consultant at onsite will improve my chances?.

For the schools you listed, you should be competitive - I can't remember what the GMAT averages are for the schools you listed, but my hunch is if there's anything you can do to better your chances, it's to retake the GMAT (since for schools in this range, if you do score significantly higher than the average, it'll be a big asset in getting you in).

Beyond that, what you do with your career (going to the US or not) is really a personal decision. Don't do it just to improve your chances for b-school. Make decisions based on what is best for your career and life, regardless of what happens with b-school.
