Hello experts
Please evaluate my profile for IIM A/B/C
I'm an HR professional with more than 7 years of experience in coal sector.
I'm planning to take GMAT in September and scored 640 in mock test.
My acads are below average.
MBA (HR) - UBS, Chandigarh 60%
B.Sc. (Physics) Delhi University - 57
12th - 73 & 10th - 83.

Thanks in advance
Sandeep


Hi kaushiksandeep
- While the rest of your profile is decent, your academics and GMAT score are a concern. The IIMs look closely at your 10/12/college scores, and these (especially the latter) are not very high.
- You will also need to explain the need for another MBA, as you already have one, from a fairly decent business school (UBS, Chd is a known brand) too.
- As of now, try to raise your GMAT score as high above 700 as you can, and then apply.

Hi OhsostudiousMJ
Pretty good profile there. Good chances at both ISB and IIMA with if you submit decent applications. You have everything these schools look for, including industry (manufacturing) experience, good ECA, and leadership experience. Your goals, through, need to be defined better. In a way, you are already managing operations, so that is not a goal by itself, at least the way expressed here. This is the key part for you to focus on.

Hope this helps. Feel free to come back with more queries as needed.

Hi equalizer
- Your background as a software consultant does mean that you will be in an overcrowded applicant pool. That is the key part to look at. Other than that, your academics, experience, ECA are all good.
- At 640, your GMAT score is not very high, but it will still not rule you out at IIML and IIMI. If you can, raise your score by another 20-30 points. If you cannot, then you can apply with this score as well.
- Your goal of strategy or management consulting post MBA may be a bit challenging to achieve. With over 9 years of IT experience, a move to management/strategy consulting will be tough. IT consulting may be possible. More senior roles in IT will also of course be possible.

Hope this helps. Feel free to come back with more queries as needed.

Hi malay12
- Your profile is quite good by way of experience, academics, and extra curricular activities.
- At 13 years, your experience may be a bit much for ISB and IIMC. You could still apply, but the experience factor decreases your chances there. IIMA is fine and a decent fit with your experience level as well.
- Post MBA, at your experience level, a lateral move into consulting will be hard. Strategy and senior ops roles in your sector are of course possible.

Hope this helps. Feel free to come back with more queries as needed.

Hello again mgr5

As an IT applicant, you should try and raise your score a bit for IIMA/B/C. While people have made it in the past with a 680 at these schools, a higher score will help. On R1 vs R2, see what you can achieve. If you can apply with a higher score in R2, then that is preferable. If you feel raising the score will be a challenge, then go for R1.

What are my prospects for pgpx and ISB ?
should I take the GMAT again or will my diverse profile help me get an offer from the B- school?

Hello raul1706,

I have always found the kind of job role you have in Merchant Navy very interesting. With a 680 you definitely have a chance. I am not very clear about your job role/ roles and responsibilities in your current company. So make sure you have thought through how that maps to what you want to do next.
If you feel there is a chance for improvement - It would be wise to retake just to improve your chances.

You could highlight the challenges you face when in the Merchant Navy ( adverse climates/challenges across geographies, staying away from family and working with culturally different people). You could also showcase anything specific you focus on in your time off too.

rgds,
Shree

Hi Malay,

your profile looks competitive. ISB may be a challenge given your age and number of years of WE. The PGP program is for younger applicants with the class average of work experience being 4.3 years. That said they do take in some senior applicants in their class regularly.
IIMB also prefers applicants with less than 12 years of work experience.
For ISB and IIMB, I'd encourage you to talk to admissions teams to get their views on their candidacy.
For IIMA, I would say, go ahead and apply. Also, add IIMC to the mix.

Regarding your goals, having 13+ years' experience, you shouldn't expect much change in your post MBA career. It would be prudent to talk about joining energy companies as opposed to a management consulting company (if that's on your mind).


Thank you for your inputs.

Regards,
Malay

Hi,

This is Arpit. I have around 9 years of experience overall. I started with Ericsson (Telecommunications) as a telecom Engineer and worked there for 5 years. Worked in Onsite projects in Romania, Greece and Egypt. Managed a team of 3-4 guys onsite and involved in a client facing role in Romania for 3 months.
Then through a competitive exam, I switched to Government sector in a partial administrative and audit role for 1 year but left to prepare for UPSC.

I developed an interest in teaching and mentoring so I started a small initiative to teach and guide aspirants of various exams through Youtube channel which currently has around 20,000 subscribers. My brand has a visible presence on facebook and Quora too. I write on Quora and have around 8000 subscribers. For a brief duration of 6 months , I worked in Ed-tech industry as a marketing manager after leaving Government job.

Currently I am working in CAG of India (Govt. Of India) as an Assistant Audit Officer (Gazetted) and will have around 2 years and 2 months of experience at the time of interview in current role. I lead a team of 3-4 members here on various audits (Financial audits and performance audits of various Government ministries and schemes), plus this job profile has elements of administration, people management, finance , accounting and IT. I am also involved in building an IT application for CAG (This involves some programming, database and product management part)

My GMAT score is 720 (Planning to take again with a target of 750-760)

My purpose of joining an Executive MBA is to get into in Ed-Tech or similar industry and then after getting some exposure at management level, start an educational initiative on my own. (something in area of Secondary and college education ).

Academics :

10th - 74%
12th - 80%
B.Tech - 65.50%

I am targeting IIM C , IIM I , IIM L only. Is my profile good enough ? Where do I need improvement ? Please guide

Hi durgeshupadhyaya
- Your experience and overall profile is quite suitable. Also go through this link
- Your GMAT of 670 might be low for the top IIMs. Try and enhance at by 20+ points (of course, the more the better).

Hope this helps. Feel free to come back with more queries as needed.

Hi RupamPaul13

- Overall profile is quite good. The SBI experience will differentiate, plus good ECA to back you up.
- Your 10th marks are ok, 12th are slightly low. Try and get a solid GMAT (700+) as your GMAT is low too.
- At this score, all of IIMA/B/C, ISB will be tough. Try and raise by at least 20 points min.

Hope this helps. Feel free to come back with more queries as needed.

My GMAT score is 720 (Planning to take again with a target of 750-760)

My purpose of joining an Executive MBA is to get into in Ed-Tech or similar industry and then after getting some exposure at management level, start an educational initiative on my own. (something in area of Secondary and college education ).

Academics :

10th - 74%
12th - 80%
B.Tech - 65.50%

I am targeting IIM C , IIM I , IIM L only. Is my profile good enough ? Where do I need improvement ? Please guide

What should be the target score for my profile in these institutes and any other aspects in my profile which I have to strengthen?
Does my low scores in 10th and 12th will be a hindrance?


Hi RupamPaul13

- Overall profile is quite good. The SBI experience will differentiate, plus good ECA to back you up.
- Your 10th marks are ok, 12th are slightly low. Try and get a solid GMAT (700+) as your GMAT is low too.
- At this score, all of IIMA/B/C, ISB will be tough. Try and raise by at least 20 points min.

Hope this helps. Feel free to come back with more queries as needed.



Thanks for your input. Yes I am targeting a score of 700+ to give me a decent shot in IIM A/B/C.

I have 6+ yrs of experience in Engineering, construction and project management in the rural sector . With this experience will it be feasible if I intend for a switch in the vertical post MBA(such as operations/marketing) or will it sound more convincing if I opt for Real Estate Sector as my post MBA goal



If you are in the EPC industry, then talking about a post MBA operations role should be feasible.
