Hello everyone,

Hope this note finds you all in great shape,

First and foremost I would like to thank you for taking the time of reading trough my post, I have no doubt this is a very busy time of the year and you have other more important things to be doing right now. Thanks.

Quick background: after having secured the sale of the unit I was hired to construct and develop for a Swiss start-up, I have decided to take upon the MBA challenge instead of continuing my work any further. Even though I think to be in what I consider a good career path, I believe the timing that this operation has happened, should be considered by me as the perfect spot to take the leap of faith and tick the executive education box in my CV. Since I never finished my degree (because I took onto an international management position) I find it very important for my career and learning process to acquire an A-Class school MBA (if I don't do it now I will need to wait for an EMBA, some 5+ years down the line). I have taken the freedom to attach my CV to this post, perhaps you, reader, my future coach, will find it an interesting read.

My target score is 730, I have outlined an application path for this year for different business schools in USA and EU which I will follow, in priority order:

Stanford: April 4th
Harvard: April 2nd
*These 2 shall be grouped into a same GMAT test on or around March end.

LBE: April 20th
Cambridge: May 4th
Oxford: May 11th
*These 3 shall be grouped into a same GMAT test on or around April 10th.

INSEAD: August 1st
IMD: August 1st
*These 2 shall be grouped into a same GMAT test on or around July 15th.

Last bullet: IMD: September 1st

Whilst I am still employed I shall be able to study weekdays on a regular basis as well as weekends. I am accustomed to 80/100 hour weeks and have no fear on taking upon hard and tiring challenges so... Bring it on GMAT!

I welcome very much all the proposals that I could receive, I am looking at working alongside someone that can not only outline a plan, but also impart regular lessons on the hottest topics at the same time than progress follow ups. I have been looking at "off the shelf" programs but consider them to be too generalist and not cost-effective for what my target score is, plus I believe in giving opportunities to individuals. I'm sure there's really good professionals around in this forum that can help me out even better than big teaching centres!

Please consider that I am based in Switzerland, Skype/WhatsApp/email will be the preferred contact ways.

Looking forward to hearing from you,

I wish you a fantastic day and a productive week,

Thank you very much,

Blas,

I think it's a great idea to go in looking to take the GMAT twice, but it's rare to see someone plan three attempts. If everything goes well, you'll get the score you want on the first attempt itself, and then send that score to every school on your list. The cost for sending up to 5 score reports is covered by the GMAT fee of \$250.
