I recommend you talk to an admission consultant and discuss your profile and expectations in details.
There are threads where you can post your debrief/details & get help from admission experts.

Hi,

I was wondering if someone could help me on what went wrong with my application last year. I applied for ISB in 2019 (GRE score of 317) and will be reapplying this year (GMAT yet to appear) . I have strong acads with a CGPA of 9.11 and a work experience of around 4 years in IT as a software engineer.

Any suggestions on how can I improve my application for this year to ensure an interview call atleast?

Hi pg03,

Even though your CGPA is good, a GRE score of 317 is OK and not that great. That said, your acads and GMAT is just one component of your application. Your quality of work experience, extra-curricular activities, essays play an equally important role.

We can certainly help you evaluate your profile but we need more information to evaluate it holistically. We request you to please PM us for the same.

Thanks for the update workout
Looks like ISB has kept the short term vs long term essay from last year.
The personal quality question seems to be new. If I remember correctly, last year's essay was on the lines of "Why you should be one of 900 students in the class of 2021?"
Any tips for dealing with Essay 1- what sort of examples to highlight, is it similar to the question about what's your greatest strength etc.

Thank You S4G for this detailed summary!
S4G wrote:
For its flagship Post-Graduate Program (PGP) in Management, ISB recently conducted its first ever “digital info session” for the prospective applicants. During the session, the admissions and placements teams covered the following key topics:

    Application Deadlines
    Application Process Overview
    PGP Structure for class of 2021

Application Deadlines
There is a slight change in ISB’s application deadlines this year compared with previous years. Until 2019, the application portal went live mid-June with application deadlines being around 15 Septmber, 15 December and 5 January for Round 1, Round 2 and Round 3, respectively.

For this year, ISB's application portal is now live with 20th Sep 2020 as the R1 deadline. ISB would announce the Round 2 application deadlines after a few weeks (tentative for December 2020 /January 2021) and there might not be an Round 3 this year.

ISB Application Process Overview

There’s no change in the application process. ISB will now accept online GMAT scores as well and ensure there’s parity in assessment vs the offline/center mode.

Modes of Entry: 2+ years of work experience (as on March 31 2021) for regular applicants; deferred admission for early-entry option (<2 years of work experience as on March 31 2021); Young Leaders Program

Qualities sought: Academic credentials; leadership quotient; personal attributes- overall persona

Recommendation & Essays: The application comprises two essays focusing on uniqueness and career goals. In addition, one recommendation from someone you’ve closely worked with is needed


COVID 19 impact on ISB PGP Class of 2021 (current class)

Due to covid-19, a number of adjustments have been made to the academic calendar for the current class and few of these changes would continue in the future,
Programme commencement from 31st May 2020, instead of the usual mid-April

    Online O-week (Orientation week), from 31st May to 15th June
    Digital Headstart Module (DHM) for 10 weeks till 30th August 2020. ISB confirmed that this would continue in the future, albeit for a shorter duration
    Academic: Term 1 online with four core courses in a digital format
    Co-Curricular Activities: Student Engagement & Applied Learning (SEAL) activities and sessions such as alumni connect, learning events, etc.
    Independent Study / Projects: Sessions on JumpStartIndiaisb, wherein this year the students will share recommendations with to various governments for bounce-back of economy

    Students will be based on campus from September 1st onwards with activities such as placements and industry treks starting January 2021 onwards
    The class will graduate by 31st May 2021. Hence, we believe that the class of 2022 (2021 intake) could have a DHM in April and May before starting on campus from June 2021

Hope this helps!

Hi,

There could be several reasons:
1. The GRE score is low and a retake will help.
2. A software engineer's is the most common profile at ISB. With this backdrop, how did you differentiate yourself from other applicants who were in our pool? Essentially this means were you able to demonstrate that you did impactful work, took leadership and brought value to your organization. Mentioning about the impact you created outside work, through your Extra curricular activities can also be a way to differentiate yourself.
Eventually, every business school wants to see what value have you added to your organizations and in what ways can YOU can contribute to their programs, so your insight on these aspects is very important.
3. Writing career goals is an art and many applicants falter there. A few faults are:
a. Goals that are not aspirational (you can get that role/position without an MBA)
b. Goals that are not linked in any way with your work experience so far;
c. no connection between the short term and the long term goal.
d. Goals are not guided by a purpose and the only desire to do an MBA is, well to do an MBA (that may be the case in reality for most applicants, but by implying this, you can not build a strong case for yourself).
4. Lastly, an unenthusiastic recommendation will do no wonders to lift an already sinking ship.

Before you reapply this year, self-reflect. What were the gaps in your application? what efforts dd you make over the past year to grow on those fronts? This growth could be in your career, extra curricular activities, in your personal development. Secondly - think about your career goals. Do they still make sense? Have they evolved because of changing circumstances or because of your increased awareness about yourself and your motivations (through the self reflection)?

The above points will give you a great starting point to think about your application in a new light. Meanwhile, continue the practice for a better GMAT/ GRE score.

In my opinion, there might be a little difference. There is a very famous saying "not all good managers are great leaders" and "not all great leaders are good managers". So think of something that parallels at least one of the qualities of a great leader.
