Hi,
I have 4 years of experience as a QA analyst in Accenture India. I have a PGDM in international business from India. Now, I run a successful restaurant business in partnership with my brother (lives in Poland) in Poland. I want to pursue MBA from an elite business school. I have a few questions in mind, which are as follow.
1. Switching from being an IT professional at Accenture in India to being a restauranteur in Poland, is a plus in my profile or a minus?
2. How much I need to score in GMAT? (Dream Schools HEC PARIS, LBS, IMD, Mannheim, Insead)
3. What kind of documents are required to prove my entrepreneurial experience?

Extracurricular:
I am Scout team lead, I led 4 scout camps in rural India for health and education betterment.
I was an NCC Cadet in school days, I led 2 camps in my leadership.
I ran a fundraising campaign for a local government orphanage.

Hello and thanks for your post.
You have an interesting background, and I think that if it is told effectively, your story of switching from IT to the restaurant business can be quite compelling. In your essays, you’ll want to demonstrate what made you make this change and what you have learned from this new role, while ideally illustrating examples of your leadership and impact. It will also be important to discuss why you now want an MBA and what your post-MBA goals are - and why they are realistic based on your background.
As for your GMAT, I suggest taking it 3-4 times as schools will only take your highest score. Your goal should be to exceed the average score of your target school’s GMAT. LBS, for example, has an average of approximately 710.
And finally, you do not need to “prove” your current experience at this point. Though it will be important to choose an appropriate person, and someone who is not in your family, to write your recommendation letter.
Good luck!
If you would like to discuss recommender selection, school selection, or your background in more detail, feel free to sign up for a free consultation at your convenience.
