Hi,

I am Bruno Nellissery, a Great Lakes Institute Of Management Alumnus (Class of 2019). Before joining PGPM at Great Lakes, I was working in the IT industry in a support function for nearly 6 years. I have transitioned to a career in Marketing and I now am a part of the Admissions and Marketing team, and I handle Content Marketing at Great Lakes as my primary area of responsibility. All those who want to know more about Great Lakes and wish to participate in the Admission Process for PGPM Class of 2020-21 (Application Deadline for Cycle 1: 30th November, 2019), may use this forum to post their queries. Candidates with 2 or more than 2 years of experience can apply to the PGPM. In case if you want to know more about Great Lakes 2 year PGDM program for candidates with 0-2 years of work experience, you may also post in here. Would be delighted to help you through your MBA journey!

Also, I’m a GMAT 730 scorer. So if anyone has any GMAT related queries, especially related to preparing for the test and reference material, you can get in touch with me on a personal message or over the phone.

Our current PGPM class at Great Lakes has students with over 600 in the GMAT, going all the way up to even 730. Having said that, let me emphasize that the Great Lakes admissions process involves shortlisting on the basis of a complete profile evaluation. Therefore, having a lower score is not a deal-breaker as there have been admits with lower scores but impressive professional and/or academic track record. At the same time, a score within the range, or even a higher one, does not assure a call if your track record has been poor. Therefore, aim for a good score, but also present your profile in the the application form in the best and most authentic manner.

Hello Abhi,

Your track record seems good. I would still suggest that you aim for a safe score of 600+. Although, your experience and achievements may be considered once you submit every detail in your application form.

Hey,

I am interested in the course. I realize that i am late for Round 1 but planning to apply in Round 2.

A brief background -

10th - 88.2%
12th - 75%
B.Tech from VIT University - 8.02 CGPA

Work Ex :-

1yrs - In a Budding start up
1 yr - Started my own venture (Hospitality and Trading) but due to lack of experience on my end, handed it over to my family members for time-being.
2 yr - Working as a hardcore sales person in a Japanese MNC.

Co-curricular - Represented my college team for 2 yrs in Formula Student where we made electric cars. Headed the suspension department in the 2nd year.

GMAT SCORE -630 (Taken in June'2017)

So do you recommend me going forward with the admit process or should I aim for improving my GMAT. I am 26yrs old right now, so time is of the essence as well.

Kindly guide me

Thanks

I think you should go ahead and apply in cycle 2. You have a good track record and profile. Your GMAT score shouldn't be a problem.

Hi BrunoN,

I have a GMAT score of 690 (41 V 42 Q) but did not submit the score with my round 1 application as I am taking the GMAT again in December. Should I submit the new score that I will get in December or submit my 690 score which I got in June?

Thanks.

Hello,

Your score is 690 is sufficient. However, if there's an improvement, do submit the improved score. Also, do keep in mind that PGPM follows a thorough profile-based shortlisting. Therefore, an entrance score is only one of the criteria for getting an interview invite.

Hi,

You'll be given a choice among 2-3 topics. You would have to write your opinion on a social or economic situation, technological development, business news, things like these. Yes you would need some general awareness of what's going on around. The test would capture your analytical approach to the topic and your thought process.

The PGDM at Great Lakes is for those with less than 2 years of work experience or no experience at all. Since you've already have more than 2 years of experience, you are eligible only for the PGPM, in full-time programs, which will save one year of your time without compromising on the learning experience and curriculum.
