Hi,

If you have the option then you should increase your GMAT score. While you might get an interview call with a lower score, an improvement in score will enhance your chances further. With your experience, a strong application and a well-crafted SOP will be necessary too.

Tridisha

Hi Experts,

I want to know whether I can apply for IIM's or ISB.
I have 670 GMAT score and 9 years total experience ( 3 yrs and 10 months in manufacturing and rest in SAP ERP consulting). I do not have long term assignments abroad but I have been to multiple countries for site assessment and lead the business requirement sessions in those countries.
Details of my profile mentioned below:
First Experience
1 Sep 2010 to July 2014
Caparo Maruti Limited
Team Member - Sourcing and QMS


R&R
1. Developed & deployed documentation standards such as FMEA, Control plan, Process Control Standards, Work instructions and Standard Inspection Procedures.
2. Assisted in coordination with external auditors and customer representatives
3. Maintained and monitored Internal Quality Audit corrective action tracking database & notified management of overdue actions.
4. Conducted corrective action verification plans & follow up audits.
5. Optimized target stock level for unpredictable demand of spare parts
6. Implemented TS:16949 standards and maintained the standards for annual audits.
7. Analyzed quality issues using fish bone diagrams and 5 Why analysis to identify root cause, prepared CAPA (corrective and preventive action) and trained supervisors to implement the same.
8. Six Sigma & its application to minimize in-process wastage/increase efficiency.
9. Trained line supervisors and operators on importance of parameters mentioned in standard operating and inspection procedures.

Reason for leaving
Grew interest in SAP and its capabilities during SAP implementation at Caparo, This prompted me to embark on a new journey of learning SAP and get certified in 2014 (in first attempt with 94% marks).

Dwelling deeper into the world of SAP enlightened me about the scale and impact of SAP across the industries. At this time, I started exploring career opportunities in SAP and got one with L&T Infotech.


Experience 2
L&T Infotech
14 July 2014 to 26th Aug 2016
Associate Consultant

People reported 4

R&R

2. Business Process Exploration (BPE) – Identified potential applicable business processes and gaps with respect to Business Process Master List (BPML)
3. Led multiple projects simultaneously and successfully delivered each of them despite tight timelines.
4. Defined guidelines for document management system and increased adherence by incentivizing and engaging the fellow associates
5.Led Proof of Concept workshops for mapping key business processes in SAP

7. Managed Go-Live and Hyper care support activities.
8. Mentored new joiners and conducted knowledge sharing sessions on client landscape and processes
9. Improved lead time of deliverables by upskilling technical resources through functional training.

Reason for leaving
I got a better opportunity to work with business i.e. GE (now Baker Hughes) and improve their processes through SAP ERP solutions. Working at GE offered me a better chance to use my expertise directly to influence change within the organization.
At L&T, I was leading multiple SAP projects for GE. Considering my subject matter expertise and reputation of handling challenging projects, GE offered me a key role in their Center of Excellence. Despite an MoU between L&T and GE which prohibits L&T employees from moving to GE, GE CIO took an exceptional approval from L&T leadership for my movement to GE.


Latest Experience

GE Oil & Gas - OG HQ-Digital Technology (1529881)

R&R

Hi

You undergrad and acads look good. Professionally you seem to have good stories to tell.

About GMAT- there is no score high enough to ensure an admit. I have seen people with more that 750 not getting accepted. So get a score as high as you can and then work on your application diligently. These are highly competitive schools.

GMAT of more than 720 would be reasonable though.

Hi Avijit

Professionally you seem to have good experience. But you will have to reappear in GMAT and target a score of atleast 680 to have a fighting chance.

7. Managed Go-Live and Hyper care support activities.
8. Mentored new joiners and conducted knowledge sharing sessions on client landscape and processes
9. Improved lead time of deliverables by upskilling technical resources through functional training.

Reason for leaving
I got a better opportunity to work with business i.e. GE (now Baker Hughes) and improve their processes through SAP ERP solutions. Working at GE offered me a better chance to use my expertise directly to influence change within the organization.
At L&T, I was leading multiple SAP projects for GE. Considering my subject matter expertise and reputation of handling challenging projects, GE offered me a key role in their Center of Excellence. Despite an MoU between L&T and GE which prohibits L&T employees from moving to GE, GE CIO took an exceptional approval from L&T leadership for my movement to GE.

Hi

It is great that you have shared detailed information.

You have good experience and extra curriculars.

GMAT may be a sticky point. I would suggest you to target 700+ in GMAT for a decent fighting chance. Otherwise we would be leaving too much to chance.

Cheers

Hi

With an experience of 12+ years, would suggest you target A and C. B has suggest experience range of 5-12 years and it becomes exceedingly difficult for 10+ years of experience.

Further your GMAT is a bit low. Target atleast 700+ for A. There have been admits with 670-680 but they are very rare and you would not want to leave such an important opportunity to chance.

Cheers

Hi
Your basic profile parameters such as acads and GMAT look good. It would boil down to how you tell your Stories. Remember that there is no GMAT score high enough to ensure an admit. Would suggest you to start working on your sop.
