Hi,

I am a 22-year old Indian female who graduated from Warwick Business School, The University of Warwick, UK with a MSc.Finance and Economics in 2017. Have a BA(Hons) Economics(first/2.1) from St.Stephen's College, University of Delhi,India. I started working at Cognizant Technology Solutions,India were I am directly working with one of the largest investment bank in Europe on their Equity Research side.I wanted to know what my chances are into getting into one of the top 5-6 MBA programs in about 2 years time.


I have been part of the Economics society, the social service league and been the chief of the woman and gender study cell during my undergrad.

I have worked at a local orphanage for 4-years during my vacations/term breaks.

Interned at one of the largest Banks in India.

Took a year off after my undergrad,during which I interned as a research assistant under the Director of Institute of Public Enterprise, a think tank in his finance and economics research.

I gave GMAT during college and socored a 690( but this will expire early next year)

How do I strengthen my profile further besides getting a 720+ on my GMAT.

Please review my profile for the same.
Thank you.

Hey there!
Well first of all, to be honest, two years might be too little for an international applicant such as yourself, unless you are coming from a high-powered finance or consulting job (like Bulge bracket or MBB). 5 years is a much more reasonable number of years of experience.


Other than that:

What can you do to improve your profile over the next years???

I would like to present you with a list of ideas, which should help you:


- Definitely do at least one if not real real volunteer works while you are working. The BEST possible volunteer work is anything that has to do with leadership or fundraising, so if you see those opportunities, jump on them!

- Make sure you do the best possible at work, taking any opportunities to lead, to get involved in social events, to advance at work, and remain at the top.

- Likewise try and keep up your life! What I mean is that schools LOVE candidates who have a broad range of activities and interests. So sports, culture, whatever. As always, if it is leadership roles you are taking on they are better than non-leadership roles.

- If you have any interest in entrepreneurship as a side project, it can be good to have that in your profile.

- If you have any interest in politics as a side project, it can be good to have that in your profile.

There are probably more things that I am not yet thinking about, but this is a very good place to start!

Overall things look promising. Right now we are too early to start getting into actual school evaluation, but this is a good start.

While you are at it, I would also suggest trying to visit the target schools, to attend events, and to learn about them as much as possible. This long-term work will pay off greatly when it comes time for you to apply.
