Indian IT Male - need help in evaluating profile [#permalink]

Hi team,

Thanks for the opportunity.

Request your help in evaluating my profile and suggesting colleges to apply.

GMAT: 720
Work exp : 48 months (by July 2018). No international experience.
Had one promotion.
Responsibilities include supporting application for health care and university customers in USA.
Led a team of 4 in couple of projects (in helping customers move to Public Cloud from Private Cloud)
Undergraduate CGPA : 7.3/10 (NIT Rourkela, one of the top 30 colleges in India)
No volunteering experience. No extra curricular after high school, a being apart from being an active member of a student activity club during under-graduation.

I've included ISB from India. Need help in shortlisting colleges abroad. Below is the list of criteria I'm looking at.
1. Colleges in USA/UK - with good placement record.
2. High scholarship chances.
3. Specialization - Finance and General Management in that order. Willing to look at colleges which are best at Operations as well.

I'd like to return to India in 4-5 years (4 years mostly), colleges where I'd have a high chance of gaining a scholarship and where I'd have a chance of getting placed into companies having their foot print in India are priority.

Please let me know if any further details are required.

Thanks for your help in advance.

Hi maximusdecimus98480, happy to offer suggestions on your profile below.

Work exp : 48 months (by July 2018). No international experience.
Had one promotion.All very respectable. Of course it would be nice to have international experience but good that you have interaction with customers in the US.
Responsibilities include supporting application for health care and university customers in USA.
Led a team of 4 in couple of projects (in helping customers move to Public Cloud from Private Cloud)
Undergraduate CGPA : 7.3/10 (NIT Rourkela, one of the top 30 colleges in India)

sounds like you recognize you need to beef up your community leadership. Are you able to highlight some volunteer work in a work setting? Try to think - even if informally- how you have given back to your community.

I think this list of top MBA programs with an operations management focus could help you narrow your list: https://www.topmba.com/mba-rankings/spe ... management and then when I add in the requirement for scholarship options here are some of the schools that pop in my mind: Krannert Purdue, Tepper CMU,
Owen Vanderbilt and Ohio State. I also think you might want to reach for Ross or NYU or Fuqua or UCLA but I don't see big scholarships from those schools. I also think it really helps to present yourself in the best way especially from over represented pools so that's where an admissions consultant can add value. I encourage you to reach out for a free consult at this link to learn more at this link: https://stratusadmissionscounseling.com ... b-visitor/

Please let me know if any further details are required.

Thanks for your help in advance.

Thanks for your help. I was thinking of Kelley, fisher, Mendoza and BYU Marriott. I'll have a look at the schools you've suggested and prepare a final list.

Thanks again
