Hi ,

Will appreciate if someone evaluate my profile for any good European business school
My Profile -
31 Year Old, post graduate Indian (Male) IT Professional with 8 year work experience ( 4 years in Europe with big financial Institutions).
Post Graduate CGPA (3.5 out of 5) from Indian Institute of Tecnology,India.

Hi dombanow,
Every MBA application is evaluated on three aspects - professional, academic and personal.

In your case, based on the relatively few details provided, it is difficult to evaluate your chances, but I can offer my opinion on how well you fit with the average candidate profile.

Your longer work experience, and especially your work experience in Europe, would be a good fit at an European business school. Since an Indian with an IT background is a very common demographic, a potential opportunity could be working extra hard on defining the uniqueness of your profile.

Academically (presuming your undergraduate GPA was in the same range), your post-graduate GPA is not that strong. This translates to your GMAT score becoming more important to mitigate an AdCom's concerns about your academic abilities. Keeping this in mind, I would advise you to take the GMAT again. I would be happy to recommend inexpensive online GMAT courses that target your specific areas to be an effective use of your time and efforts.

In summary, on the basis of your academic and professional information above, I would recommend that you take the GMAT again for a higher score to improve your academic profile and focus on setting yourself apart from other Indian candidates with a similar IT background.
