Request you to kindly evaluate my profile and let me know realistic chances of making it to a top MBA college.

My profile:

Age : 33

Nationality: Indian


1)Masters in Human resources (from a good university) - 65%

2) BE (computers) - 61 % ( not from top 10 engineering college in India)

(3) 12th - 62 % (India)

(4) 10th - 75% (India)

Work Experience :

• 1 year of work experience in Insurance industry as an Human resources professional post my masters in HR

• After that I had to join family business due to some family issues and worked there for 2 years.The family business was a food product manufacturing factory/plant. I have worked for 2 years in it and have good understanding of the business i.e. production process ,revenue model,profit margin etc.

• And currently I an working with a NGO in there adminstration department for the last 2 years.I have worked on different social awarness programs and have been part of children education,Women welfare projects.

Community Service:

• Volunteer with few NGO's for the last 2 years.
• I am on the HR strategy formation group of one of the NGO.
. I have received few certificate of appreciation for my community work from these NGO's.

Goal:My post MBA goal is to get into Management consulting and gain experience for few years there and my long term goal is to open my own business once I have the experience for it.

Other certification and skills:
1) Have 2 globally recognised certifications (Other than CFA )
2)I am CFA level 2 candidate.
3) Speak 2 languages (other than English and my native language).

GMAT score :720


1)I'm planning to apply for my MBA in '2014 . My goal is to do my MBA from the top global MBA college .Kindly evaluate my profile and also suggest the colleges that I should apply to and have a good chance of getting into.

2)Also in your view which is a better option for me 1 year or a 2 year MBA(Please suggest few good 1 year MBA programs that are fit for my kind of profile)

3)Another issue I would like your views on is that my performance in math course in graduation was not good (I failed ) but it was mainly due to lack of focus rather than a true reflection of my maths aptitude (GMAT Quant score 49). If you can suggest few things that I can do to make my profile stronger in this area, as I have heard that Quants play a major role in admissions decision of a candidate.

4) Let me know institutes/colleges I should apply for and have a better chance of making it to.

Hoping to hear from you soon.

Hi niche27,

Thanks for posting. You have a strong candidacy. For your application, I recommend you read this case study of an Indian engineer who was accepted into a top MBA program: ... ies/case2/. It should provide insight for your application.

For your MBA programs, do you have a preference in location (California, New York, etc.), and are you interested in a particular industry?

For your failed math class, I recommend you address this in your application. We have a case study of how one candidate did this here: ... ies/case5/

We also provide free 30 minute phone consultations here:
