Hi derekjbj,

For your application, understand that admissions teams are looking for candidates with leadership experience and who have made an impact. I recommend you read this case study of an Indian engineer who was accepted into Columbia, Tuck, and MIT:

It should provide insight on how you can frame your application.

Hope this was of help.

Cheers,

Conrad and the Stacy Blackman Team

Stacy
Thanks for the response. For your reference, I am applying to a part-time MBA program, and not a full time (case study on your website is of a full time MBA applicant). is there a difference,
when applying to full time against part time programs?

Hi derekjbj,

The primary difference is that admissions at part-time MBA programs will focus more on your work experience than on your GMAT score and undergraduate record.

Best,

Conrad and the Stacy Blackman Team
