Hi,
Your different background is an ADVANTAGE (applies to every school). You need to score nearly 670-680 for IMD. They are highly selective. A batch of 90 in a year. Your profile is really good and unique. As per me, you have good chances.

What other schools are you targeting in Europe?

Hi,
You have bit less than the average GMAT score for IMD. You need to explain further about your job profile, achievements and leadership examples so that I would be able to give some suggestions. Why you would like to go for IMD? You would like to take up consultant roles after MBA but where and which industry?

and since you are the one who would take care of profile eval requests, you should logically lead this conversation. I am therefore making you OP of this thread.

Kindly evaluate my profile:

Indian Male (31 year-old)

Undergraduate: Bachelor Of Engineering in "Computer Science" from Rajiv Gandhi Technological University.

UG Percentage: 67.8 (probably 7.1 on 10 point scale)

Job profile: 5-years(August,2014-present) as Credit Manager (Scale 2) at one of India's largest public sector bank-Bank Of India, to which I was selected through a national level competitive examination with a selection ratio of 1:200. Joined as Assistant Manager and promoted to manager in 2019 through a bank-wide written and interview competitive procedure. Currently, I am managing Credit portfolio in a branch of over INR 100 crores (approx. USD 14 Million). My work includes achieving credit targets of the branch, identification of borrowers, review of credit history, monitoring of proposals prepared by staff, supervision on disbursement of advance, monitoring of existing portfolio, managing and mentoring a team of 18 people (who are at various levels of organizational hierarchy), implementation of Government loan schemes. I have been instrumental in steering my present and earlier branch to highly profitable balance sheet through diversifying into a segment that was earlier playing a negligible role in branch's portfolio.

GMAT: 730 (Q51, V38, IR6, AWA 5).

Extracurricular:(1) During UG, I was part of the team that won National Level Paper Presentation Contest on "Re-Engineering vs Reverse Engineering".
(2) Multiple prizes in essay, sports, drama competitions during schooling.
(3) After UG, worked freelance to develop a local startup on WordPress web development which was a learning experience.
(4) During my present position, I have also been deputed as Presiding Officer for polling booths in National Election 2019 and MP State Election 2018. Duties included managing polling team of 6-10 people, more than 1100 voters and political party agents in a politically sensitive polling area while providing real-time polling statistics to Election Commission of India.

No international experience.

Post MBA: mainly Finance, Fintech or Consulting.

Thanks in advance

Hi,
As per me, your profile is quite rich and strong. The only thing I am worried about your future goals of Finance/Consulting on which IMD is bit weaker. Why don't you try in LBS? It will be better fit for your goals. Another suggestion after LBS is HEC. I know your age in on the higher end for US schools, but there is no harm in applying :)
To conclude, you must consider LBS and HEC in your top list for European schools. Both of these schools are highly renowned. Please feel free to write for further discussion. All the best :)

Hi,
You have a well above GMAT score as compared to the avg. score of class. As per me, you would be a good fit considering your work ex. with different sectors and extra-curricular. The extra-curricular points are not so much in IMD. They are looking for highly mature professionals who have taken leadership positions in the past. International experience is an asset. The first round deadline is February 1, 2020 and the applications are just started. You can follow the below link to connect with other applicants:
https://gmatclub.com/forum/calling-all- ... l#p2400384

Things to take care:
1. You need to justify why you are going for second MBA. Tackle this question carefully
2. There are few scholarships in IMD and they are granted for best overall profiles. I believe 720 above is not required and you should try to make your overall profile strong including essays, recommendations, etc. Its tough to say about scholarships possibility, hence you should keep a plan for funding. IMD has a question regarding funding in application process.
Questions for you:
1. Do you have any International work experience?
2. Where are you planning to work after MBA?

Unfortunately I don’t have any international exposure where I have traveled abroad for an assignment. Though in my first assignment I had to collaborate with my Japanese counterparts on a daily basis. They were extension of the same team. During my first MBA I was part of a project where students from 5 different countries worked on a project for a month but there was not travel involved. Don’t think backpacking trips count so not evening mentioning them.

Post the second MBA I am looking forward to managing a global role (spanning more than one country) based out either Europe, US or Asia

You can mention the learning of cross culture and functions from your Japanese and MBA experience respectively. What other schools are you targeting? Are you going to apply in IMD-R1? If yes, please feel free to PM me for further discussions.

Hi Nitish13..
Thank you for sharing details about you. You are aware that for an Indian student targeting IMD with gmat 650 will be tough. I hope you are going to increase to at least 680-700. Your defense profile will be an advantage and I don't know how it works to get promoted there. You need to show inclination/rise in your work profile by promotion or achievements. Your need to craft a good story of your goal for the transition you are looking. Admit and Scholarships depend on overall strength of the profile. I hope you will have chances if you can improve your GMAT with strong essays and other aspects.
I just have a question. Are you working full time with defense?
