Hello everyone and congratulations to all the successful candidates who got the acceptance letter!

I received a conditional acceptance letter for the 2017 Jan intake (conditional because my GMAT score has just expired) and look forward to connecting with prospective candidates.

Just to give a quick background about myself, I have seven years of experience as a satellite communications specialist. In my capacity as Assistant Manager in the International Division, I have worked on 15 international assignments covering a plethora of services and a wide spectrum of technologies. I am now keen to make a transition to the field of consulting and align myself with the Telecommunication, Media and Technology (TMT) division there.

My interview was conducted in New Delhi on 14th Feb with Ms. Maryke and I got the acceptance letter on 22nd Feb, which is a really quick turnaround.

I would like to get some information on the financing options for the course. I am currently in conversation with Prodigy finance and indian banks and would appreciate your inputs in case you are looking at financing options as well.

Karthik Iyer will PM you my contact details, so you can add me to the group chat.

Best regards,
Siddhartha

Hello everyone.

I want to apply for RSM, can someone evaluate my profile and tell me my chances? 710 GMAT, 33 months of work ex currently in business developement plus managerial (couple of promotions, glowing LORs), will be 40+ by Jan 2017, 23 years old, horrible GPA (49%). A small successful entrepreneurial venture as well, some MNC partners. My biggest concern is my gpa, work ex and age.

I want to work in consulting post MBA, would RSM be a good choice for that? I prefer Europe over USA, but concerned about work permit after my MBA due to my low work ex. I know the situation in Netherlands is much better compared to the rest of Europe.

Your GMAT score looks fine to apply. Work-ex is on the lower side(although you got 2 promotions). As far as consulting is concerned, a lot of ppl want to work in that field post MBA, so naturally the competition is pretty high. Work permit is not related to your work exp. It depends on whether you land a job post MBA or not. I recommend that you send your resume to the MBA team and let them evaluate your profile.

Thanks for the reply. Already sent my resume, they encouraged me to apply. I was concerned about the work permit as due to my low work ex, it'll probably not be easy for me to land a job there. You'll be enrolling at Erasmus?

Hi All,

Congrats to all the admits. I am a round one applicant and has been invited for Interview in the month of May. Details are yet to be announced.

I know it is going to be extremely competitive for Indian candidates as more than 15 Indian students have already been given admits way before the round 1 deadline. However, I want to understand your views about the selection process. Can you guys who are admitted can throw some light on the interview and subsequent processes? Any suggestions on what to prepare or areas to concentrate.

Focus strongly on your essays. Be well versed with the things that you have mentioned in your essays and applications. It would come naturally if you are true in your app and essays. Some interview debriefs have been posted in this thread. Go through them. The admission process is quite encouraging to be honest. The people are quite helpful and professional throughout your application.
As far as competitiveness is concerned, don't fret too much about the admits at this point. There's always room for the right candidate in any B-School.

Hope that helps.

Hello,

Firstly, congratulations to all who received an admit from Rotterdam.

I wish to apply to the Rotterdam MBA starting in Jan 2017. My profile is 8 years experience (by Dec 2016) in product management, project management, B2B sales and on-site execution for a German MNC. I have 730 on GMAT.

I have some queries:
1) Considering that there are already quite a few admits from India, is it advisable to apply at this point in the admission cycle?
2) In my mind, I am somehow averse to the idea of a 1 year MBA. Is there enough time to study and network effectively to land a job in a span of 12 months?
3) Have any of the admits in this forum received scholarship?

I got the call for admit from Mr. Bart. I was interviewed on May 28th in Bengaluru. I had applied to the program in Apr. He had mentioned that the mail can be expected by Tuesday or Wednesday.
Scholarship information however will take time which I asked him during the interview.
