My profile:

Indian Male / 27 years old

B.Tech In Computer Science & Engineering from JNTU Hyderabad,India (Not as good as IITs but one of the top universities in the state of A.P. I ranked 71 among 140000 entrance exam takers to get into the college)

Undergraduate GPA: 77%

GMAT: 760 (Q50 V41) +4.5 AWA

Work Experience:Working in an Indian IT Consulting organization for the past 7 years .

0-2 years - Worked for a US credit card/banking client in India.
2-7 years - Have been working with a financial services client in USA.

I am currently working as a project architect for one of the technology assets within the client organization.My responsibilities include creating and maintaining long term strategy/roadmap for our assets, Analysing Industry trends in the technology used by our group, evaluating new solutions and providing recommendations to clients.

Prior to my current role i have worked as tech lead and responsible for building new technology infrastructure in our group when our client separated from another company.

All 7 yrs of my experience have been in the technology arena and i don't have any managerial experience.

Extra Curriculars : Long Distance Runner. Ran 2 full marathons in the last 2 years and a 193 mile relay race recently. I also volunteered in few local running races.

Reason for MBA: Working for a financial services client got me interested in finance and post MBA i am interested in switching career to finance.

I am considering the below list of schools to apply in Round 2 for fall 2011 admissions.How good are my prospects for admission into these schools?

London School of Business

Are there any other schools in US/Europe that might be a fit for me and worth exploring?


Please give me kudos if you like my post

Focus on NYU, Cornell, Yale in the US; Oxford and Cambridge in the UK. And LBS as your stretch school. These schools will position you well for a finance career post-MBA, and are schools where you have a more reasonable shot of getting into.
