Hello Experts ,


GMAT - Slot Booked and approaching soon. At the earliest i want to start with building a profile and making it look strong. So kindly advise B-schools according to it so i can narrow down my schools.

Ethnicity- Indian
Male , 24 years old
Btech (Mechanical) - 2013 - 69%
12th - 2009 -87%
10th (ICSE) - 2007 - 75%

Work Experience - 3 years

I am currently working as a business development executive at a startup and have worked with a government agency to design some training programs for their employees and have worked on a building an android application along with succesful launching of a online platform designed for certain companines. ( working for about 2 years here).
Working alongside here , My father owns an advertising agency in which i play a role too because it is a family business and i need to look after when he is away and have helped create logos for the Government of Telangana. I am from Hyderabad , India and Telangana is the State. So i do not know how to leverage this work because in my own personal opinion I think it is great to have worked on a few government projects and design logos for it. The logo is evident on their websites and posters and all over the city . So i think i can give me some edge but any opinion regarding this will be considered
Prior to this i worked with Google for a year via a third party. I worked here as a business analyst.

EC

Sports - Swimming, basket ball , kabbadi , table tennis and badmintion , Boxing .
Won the 1st Place in basketball in Sports Fest conducted . Participated in multiple university and state level competitions .
Participated in a national level debate and Adjourned best speaker in a debate at a college level event.
Winner of an Extempore at a national level technical fest
Participated in multiple public speaking events and debates
The president of a Student Body in college for 2 years until the end of gradudation undertaking lot of responsibilities and conducting multiple events
Organiser of the Sports Fest for 3 years along with a team under me and succesfully organised multiple events. Along with Organising as a sports player had to pariticipate thus managing both organising and playing.
I was the anchor for the Annual Day for 2 years and conducted the event in a splendid fashion
Class representative and event organiser for the college Fest for 4 years
Musical instruments learned - Keyboard , Guitar , Violin
Performed in the annual day and formed an own band during the college days and participated in college events.
learnt Classical singing for over 11 years and still learning
An active member of NSS during college and couple with the other activities i had , went on to form events to distribute food , books , clothes to the needy and have taught maths and physics to the needy .


Academic Projects and Achievements

Always in the reckoning of the class - top 5%
Multiple projects in Robotics and designed various prototypes using basic principles of robotics and have done an internship in a PSU regarding steam engines
I have been to multiple industries such as steel pant , iron ore plant and a couple of thermodynamic industries to see the functioning of machines and an automobile industry as well to see the understanding of manufacture of components.
Softwares learned - CAD/CAM , Catia , Solid Works , Pro-E , Ansys (taught during academic rigour ) along with the normal C , C++ , Java , MS office etc.



As seen above most of college extra circulars have been at organizing events and conducting events and always having a team of members under me. So i love to take up such roles and thus have this desire to be a manager . I have learnt a lot during them and would want to leverage that experience gained to become a better manager. My academics are not that great but if an overall profile is desired i have pretty decent academics , active in sports , music and other activities as told above. Is there anything that could be done to further solidify my profile because i cannot change my academics

Future Goals - To become a successful manager use the knowledge i have gained during my life and later on become an entrepreneur or take up the family business and invest money in certain ideas i have as a startup

I am interested to handle multiple members , open to any stream of management be it finance , marketing , operations , general or sports. Looking forward to study in the top b-schools of course in US , Europe , UK and India

Target schools - ISB , Nanyang , Oxford
Dream schools - Yale , Kellogg

Acc to the profile , the schools i can apply too and any target score needed to achieve the schools i desire
I believe i can get 700-720 . I will try and aim for that as well

Any advice will be considered .Thanks
