Hi ,i don't know if its the right place to ask this question if not please guide me to the correct section.....so i am following this awesome community from quite some time but was never serious about getting MBA degree but after working all these years i feel so stuck with my current position and work profile i decided to change my job profile to something more challenging in finance/consulting or investment banking i am planning to take GMAT but still confused about whether to take this risk of quitting my job or not because in my country(i am from india) working in a bank is considered as most secured and pretty reputed profile but the sector is highly underpaid and growth rate/job satisfaction is not as i expected , As far as my profile goes i always been an average student have done my Engineering in computer science but really screwed my graduation percentage, i worked 1 year as a web developer and then switched to banking sector , where i am working as manager banking operations for a leading private sector bank from the last 4 years.I wanted to know whether my average academics hamper my chances to get into a good B school or my exp plus a good GMAT score ( what should i aim for? ) would be ok one more thing could you please suggest some schools by looking at my profile. Thanks in advance.

Hey Kevlor

Your work experience is pretty good. Just aim for a good (700+) GMAT score. Again, most good B-schools ( other than IIMs which require a very strong academic background) have a very holistic approach towards admissions. So make sure you have some good extra curricular activities to showcase. There are a lot of things that you can do, work upon your hobbies, learn a language, join the toastmasters club, volunteer for a cause that you strongly feel for, etc. Try to get hold of an MBA school application e.g. you can start the online application on the ISB website. Go through each and every section of the application carefully, it'll give you a good idea of what good B-schools looks for ,and what can you work upon. Also visit the financial times B-school rankings on ft.com, it'll give you all the information about the school rankings and the average GMAT required for the respective the schools.

Hope I've answered all your queries, if you need any more information, I'll be happy to help!

Good luck!
