hi thanks for the reply .

As I currently work in the product strategy field a large part of my work involves identifying the market trends ,current needs of the customer , identification of unmet needs by surveys and talking to the customer and finding a way to capitalize on it so my brand can gain some market share . as such I need to know things such as pricing strategy , dealing with innovation , etc that are taught as a coursework in most of the MBAs . further I aspire to be a product manager and such a role demand an MBA .

I hope to convince the ISB panel with the above . Pls let me know if the above is enough

thanks and regards

Sure this looks better. Make sure this is articulated well in the second essay (that's the only way to convince ISB panel:)).

Hi rajshreesweta, would urge you to consider re-attempting GRE, to push that score by at least 3-4 points.

Your experience is slightly on the lower side and while rest of your profile seems very good, why let few GRE marks come between you and your aspirations?

Hi,

I am an Indian Army officer with 20 years experience in Logistics and Supply Chain Management, and 42 years of age. Also lead an army unit with more than 1000 personnel under me. International exposure of 14 months in a United Nations Peace Keeping Mission in Africa. My GMAT score is 680 (Q 47, V 35). Please evaluate my profile. Should I aim for 700+ and attempt again?

Hi ajayps77

Although you have way more experience than the ISB average (in fact, 4 times as much), your unique background and accomplishments mean that you could well be among those 5-10 exceptional people that ISB takes in irrespective of the quantity of work experience, because the quality of work experience far supersedes it. A 680 may work very well for you. Your key goal will be to show an Army to civilian life transition, and what role an MBA would help you achieve.

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

Hi spkumar

This score may not be enough for ISB. You are also on the higher side of work-ex for IIMB/C. IIMA would need a higher score (680+). The rest of your profile seems ok from what you have described, but as the UG score is somewhat lower a higher GMAT for that and other reasons would be helpful.

Hi Ajay, you don't need to reappear in GMAT.

ISB may still reject your candidature, if it concludes that your experience is already so much that a MBA might not add any significant value to your profile.

Or

ISB may be extremely willing to have you in the batch, since you have demonstrated leadership experience.

In either case, 20 additional points on GMAT are not going to be of much value towards your candidature.

Do work on your essays around Operations Management. You have a very strong Operations background and ISB offers Operations as a specialization as well.

Hi Murlidhar,

your work experience sounds good, but do provide some more details. Are you in a business/client facing role? tell a little more about your work experience. What do you want to do after mBA? What have you done outside of work?

Hi sneha061192

- Your academics (the Master's in the US helps as well) are quite good, and even though you will be considered an IT applicant, digital payments is a good area to be in.
- A 690 could well work in your case but you will need to explain why you need an Indian MBA now, and what you plan to achieve post MBA.
- The part-time experience will not count in the total experience for ISB (as ISB considers only post-qualification experience).
- The ECA will need a closer look. From what you've described, this does not seem a strong plank. Please provide more details here if possible.

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

Re: ISB Profile Evaluation - Tools for B-School Profile Evaluation [#permalink]
Hi Harshit,
I am an ISB alum, C014 and have been assisting applicants in their admission journeys since.
Below is my take on your profile:
GMAT: Assuming you will manage 720, it will be very competitive
Academics : Average (not sure how M.A Economics from IGNOU fits into the rest of your profile)
Work Experience: Diverse
Extra curricular: Average
While for most of the elements you will get a hygiene check, the admission committee would be most interested in knowing your story – essentially the different career moves you have made in the past – your rationale behind them and how ISB fits into your goals.
You will need to justify how you decided to make a move from being a BTA in Deloitte to the CTO of a legal firm when you do not have a prior background in Law. Also, after just spending only 2-3 months in the firm at a management position, what has motivated you to do a MBA.
Short and Long term career goals post MBA needs to be absolutely clear and logical in your mind and you will need to present in the essays and rest of the application how your past when complemented with PGP from ISB will catapult you towards those goals.
A logical flow of events in the form of a story is a must to draft an impressionable application.
Please feel free to get in touch with me at arijit.biswas@crackadmission.com and/or +arijit_biswas89 (Skype) in case you want a detailed discussion or need professional assistance.
Cheers
Arijit
