Hi m.bangakh@gmail.com,

Thank you for your post and for sharing your profile. To better assess your profile, I have a few questions. What institutions have you graduated from (demonstrable academic rigor)? Can you share your academic performance (both undergraduate and graduate levels)? Also, are you proficient in another language (other than English)? Why an MBA? What are your post-MBA goals?

Hi usamawarraich,

thank you for sharing your profile.

More detail is needed in order to better assess your profile. For example:

(1) What positions have you held in your three work experiences?

(2) Are you currently in the UAE? Or that was your first role? Do you have any other international experience?

(3) What are your career goals post-MBA?

(4) What type of extra-curricular activities are you currently engaged in?

As for GMAT, try to aim higher than 700. You want to be at least 20-30 points above INSEAD's average, so at least around 720-730.

In order to conduct a more detailed evaluation, it would be great if you could also share your CV. Please, feel free to PM me or email me directly at alex@arleeconsulting.com.

Thank you
Alex

Hi m.bangakh@gmail.com

We are a bit late in responding to you but we hope this finds you in time still.

We would be in a better position to provide you a detailed profile evaluation if we had more information on your career progression, achievements, and exact role. Nonetheless, INSEAD is a bit sensitive about international experience. Considering your profile is a bit weak on that front, we would recommend that you work towards a higher GMAT score to differentiate yourself.

Thanks.

All the best!

Extra-Curricular:
1. Half marathon Runner and fitness blogger.
2. I've won many school level and University level Debate competitions.
3. I have been part of multiple student organizations at both undergrad and Post grad level including Entrepreneurship cell.

Community Service:
1. Co-founder of an NGO working for rural and tribal employment.
