Hello Aringo! I want to apply to MBA next year (and actually start the MBA Fall 2017 or Spring 2018) and would highly appreciate review of my profile.

My Profile

Work experience: 10+ years (incl two maternity leaves)
Industry: FMCG, marketing

I have 10+ years of marketing experience within FMCG sector.incl lead of New Product Development. My carrier started from go-to-market marketing/category management roles in top international beauty companies in the Baltics (3 countries, 8 mil. consumers). After c. 6 years of this experience I moved to nr1 local Dairy producer. So, last 4 years have been dedicated to dairy industry in the Baltics and Russia, both NPD and go-to-market responsibilities.


Education:
Master of science in Mathematical Economics. With honors. avg grade 8.9 out of 10
Bachelor in Analytical Economics, avg grade 8.5 out of 10
Summer courses from Saint Martins School in London
Certificate in Category Management
10+ international company internal trainings / different countries


Extracurricular activities:
• Sports: crossfit, jogging (incl. marathon competitions), swimming
•Coding for children (studying the course targeting to educate children in the community)
• passion for traveling (United States (incl 4 mnth of living), Canada, Venezuela, China, over 10 countries in Europe and many places in Russia)

Languages: Russian (native), English and Latvian (fluent), German (modest)

Short-term career goal: Move to other country and get a position in business development or marketing management infashion/beauty industry. Preferably, the role related to product development.
Long-term career goal (more than 5 years post MBA): own business, most probably marketing consulting

Target schools: INSEAD (top choice), HEC, Essec, I.E. Madrid, IMD

Thank you in advance!


Hi,

And thanks for reaching out and sorry for the late reply! You have a lot of things going on for you, and so I do see you getting admitted to one of the schools mentioned with a top notch application at least. However, make sure you have a good reason for why you chose all the schools in question, it is not completely clear to me why they are all on your list.

Now, about INSEAD, since it is your top choice, I would also suggest a GMAT retake as your GMAT score is low for them. Would you be up for that at all? I think it would really help!

Additionally, with a better GMAT score HEC Paris might be an option for you. Due to your interest in fashion and beauty it seems like it would be a great option for you (not getting into too much detail here but if you look into it a bit you will see that they have ties to some of the top fashion houses and beauty companies in the world, like Hermes and L Oreal, if I am not mistaken and a lot of people in those industries will really value an MBA from them). However, I see it as a reach school at the moment due to your GMAT score.

So my suggestions for now would be to fine tune your school list (and do look into HEC Paris unless you have a specific reason not to) and to aim for a higher GMAT score for now.

Good luck!
