Hello,

Im a 27 y/o Bangladesh Male. I am looking to shortlist schools for MBA.
The most important thing for me is - scholarship /funding. My profile and other relevant info goes below.

Thanks in advance-
Jamil

3. Project Manager - Telecom Rollout Projects - 5 months
4. Management Trainee, Technology- 10 Months

Education:
1. Bsc. in EEE , BUET , CGPA 3.73
2. GRE - 331, Q-167, V-164 ( both 94 percentile)
3. TOEFL: 116

Focus Area from MBA:
1. Marketing Analytics
2. Entrepreneurship & Innovation
3. Business Analytics
4. Corporate Strategy

Career Goals:
1. Entrepreneurship
2. Technology consultancy for emerging markets

Interest:
1. Football & Badminton - played for University team
2. Social Problem solving- founding member of Shikhkha - a non profit that makes free lab equipment for village kids and takes classes.

Unique Anecdote:
I got a fully funded MBA fellowship at Olin in 2016 and Waitlisted in R2 at Booth.
Did not accept because I wanted to start my business. Tried setting up a GRE teaching platform in local language. Did not fly.
Since then, I have tried 2 ecommerce shops selling Essential Oils in USA and another selling pet accessories in Australia. They are still operational.

Unique Anecdote:
I got a fully funded MBA fellowship at Olin in 2016 and Waitlisted in R2 at Booth.I was actually going to suggest Olin! But I see that you have been down that road... does that mean you want a scholarship but only to a "higher ranked" school than Olin? I think your best bets for funding will come from the Olin range- look also at Kelley, possibly Carlson for entrepreneurship, look at UNC Kenan-Flagler (they have good consulting prep), also consider Emory, Georgetown. You can look at Fuqua- not sure I see you getting big scholarships there and the best chance this year has already passed in the earliest round but you could still apply. Or look to be early for next year. Those are some thoughts that come to mind- good luck!

Hey Donna,

Thanks for the insightful feedback. Olin was a very good school but at that point of time I chose not to attend because
1. I wanted to start my own business
2. I believed I needed a bit more maturity and experience in team dynamics of leading a group of people

in order to make the most of my experience from an MBA.

Coming back to schools. By Olin range - do you mean Oline, Carlson,Kelley ? I am also looking into Simon rochester. What do you think about that? Any more schools that come to your mind in this range ?
About Duke Emory UNC -I agree with you that the funding probability is very low.

Thank you again for the support.
