Second MBA: Profile Evaluation and Suggestions (Indian IT M) [#permalink]
14 Apr 2013, 07:03
I am a very new to GMAT area and this forum. So please forgive me if this is not the right place to post this. I have already posted the below query on a different thread but haven't got any response from there so assuming that it was a wrong thread.
I am already an MBA and am interested in a 2nd MBA very soon. The main reason i look forward for a 2nd MBA is that I did my first once straight after engineering and didnt have any experience and thus took a job which was first one to come on campus (I have not realized that its not where I want to be). I also realize that I need to get into a great college which had a alum base which can help me into Strategy Consulting or General Management.
Could you please have a look at my profile and give me your thoughts on that? It would be really helpful.
Nationality: Indian Background: 85% score in High School. Computer Science Engineer from average engineering college in India (top 15 of my class). First MBA: Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur (ranked in top 20 schools in India)
Work experience: One of the Big 4 accounting firms in Risk Advisory
Summer Internship: Financial Trading and Hedging Model building at India's Biggest commodities exchange. Initiatives at work: 1. Formed a team to solve a compliance issue of my company and successfully heading the team. Appreciated by Senior Leadership. 2. Authored a White Paper paper and a proposal which would increase our reach to a particular group of clients. Appreciated by Manager and leadership. 3. Developed a standard pricing tool to price/charge the clients for our services.
Extra Curricular Activities: 1. Placement Committee In charge in B school and Engineering. Some leadership experience there. 2. Editor of annual college Magazine and newsletter at IIT 3. Director of a Business Club (have good leadership experiences during 2 years at the club) at Engineering college. 4. Annual Festival coordinator for 2 cultural and business festivals in College.
Teaching Experience: I teach/coach students on personality development and interview skills at both graduate level and undergraduate level in partnership with a leading Coaching and Mentoring company in India.
Internet Startup: A small internet venture, more than 200 regular readers. Very nascent stage. Planning to grow in coming months.
Couple of Research oriented projects in Finance during MBA (Financial Model Building).
I have passed of my MBA in 2012 and have been working for around 1 year now. I am currently into IT Risk advisory and want to move into strategy consulting or Finance roles. I am planning to do a second MBA form US after having a total of 3 or 4 years of work experience.
Could you please give me some feedback on my current profile and how I should develop a good profile in coming 2-3 years so that I can be on a good platform when i start my applications. Also, after seeing my profile, can you suggest some schools which can be my stretch, reach and safety schools ( I would be interested in researching more on them and taking to alumni in the next year).

Usually MBA schools in US do not give accept students who already did their MBA - well thats what I found in the schools I applied. I think most of the top tier schools don't permit a second MBA. Univ of Mich - Ross, Univ of Chicago - Booth are good for Finance, Strategy...
But, would be difficult to suggest without your GMAT score. Also, the kind of experience you gain in the next few years matters.
