Hello,

I am looking forward to applying for M.Sc. Finance for 2017 intake.

My profile is as follows:

1. GMAT score: 730
2. GPA: well, we do not use GPA in India, so I am not sure about that. I have 62% in Bachelor of Commerce, which, as per some random calculator I found online comes to around 3.00 out of 4.00.
3. I am a Chartered Accountant from India
4. I have 3 years of internship experience in Audit, Taxation and Transfer Pricing
5. By the time I start school I will have another year of work experience (an actual job this time) in Corporate Finance in Wipro (quite a huge corporation)
6. I speak following languages:
a. Spanish: level B1
b. French: beginners
7. I haven't taken a TOEFL yet, but I think I can achieve the required level.
8. I have some decent international exposure due to my languages and the 1 year I spent in Sweden for a Cultural Exchange programme.

I have been looking at HEC, Imperial, ESSEC, ESCP, ESADE, IE, Bocconi, etc.
However, I feel only HEC meets all the criteria I have set.
Others are either too expensive, offer very few scholarships, have bad rankings, require proficiency in a foreign language, or the duration is too long.

I would really appreciate some opinions as I am quite torn about any decision I should take a.t.m.

So thank you in advance for replying.

Regards
Aishwarya (I am a female)

hey Aishwarya,

Overall your profile is pretty good.

730 is a splendid GMAT score so schools will be surely interested in it.

Your work experience is rich and valid, so you are covered there.
Wipro is a decent brand, but try to get experience in better MNC's (consulting, auditing firms), that would be more helpful.

Knowledge of languages would be a bug asset and showcase your interest in business.

International exposure will be definitely appreciated.

On the weakness part, well CGPA would be a problem, but i would suggest not using any random calculator, contact the school for more offical charts.

Then relative competition will be a tough battle, as there are a ton of asians who apply, so via your essays you need to carefully explain how you are better, and what value will you be adding to the school.

As for HEC, well it is a very competitive school, but with a strong application & engaging essays you may just be able to crack it.
Though be aware that to make the most of the post grad opportunities HEC offers, its a good idea to learn French.

I would suggest you take the free profile evaluation we offer at
http://www.mim-essay.com/mim-profile-evaluation/

This will allow us to ask you the relevant questions and give you a more comprehensive evaluation complete with strengths, weaknesses and a final verdict.

Let me know if you have any further questions.
