Hi guys,
Thanks for starting this thread Narenn! I am at an initial stage of just about making up my mind to apply and get an MBA from the schools across Europe and US. But what I am most curious about is my profile evaluation because I don't come from a common competitive group that mainly constitutes- female, IT/engineer. Do see and tell me your thoughts!

Overall, I have led the production of many prime time shows in the channels which requires working and handling mutliple teams. I have also handled many major news situation which requires collaboration and leading the editing and camera team. At Future Group, I have led a few major internal communication campaigns for the entire group and been actively involved in external campaigns that required collaboration with the marketing, investor relations, HR and the CEO's office. I have also led my vendors and agencies effectively for the various film projects at the group level.

Community:-

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.
