Hi there, I would really appreciate some feedback and answers to my questions below.

Questions:

1. From the info below, what do you think are my prospects at my preferred universities?
2. Which universities do you think I should explore as my backup options?
3. Is there an advantage to applying from Dubai rather than India?

Nationality:
Indian (Resident of and applying from Dubai)

Gender:
Female

GMAT Score:
700. Math (40 percentile), Verbal (95 percentile)

Education:
Undergrad: Bachelors of Science (Hons) in Business Management from King's College London '13. Grade: Upper Second Class

Professional Experience (5 years):
Jul 2013- Mar 2015: Marketing Specialist at a Tech Collaboration company called Moxtra based in Bangalore.
Jul 2015- Dec 2016: Assistant marketing manager - Social Media at Teabox, Bangalore
Jan 2017 - Present: Marketing Manager at Byte Academy.

I have worked in start-ups that have been at varying stages of business. Moxtra is the brainchild of the Founder of Webex, and as a result, had sufficient investment backing it. My role encompassed a variety of marketing activities such as conceptualizing and organizing dedicated marketing events in Bangalore, California, New York and Michigan as well as negotiating terms for various events across the world for Moxtra to sponsor/ participate in, including TechCrunch Disrupt, AppsWorld Europe, and DevLearn Vegas. Setting up the complete execution strategy for the company's social media campaigns, both organic and paid, creating and executing content strategies - curating, optimizing and editing content for all social media channels and the blog, both in-house and with agencies + A lot of BD targeting companies in India.

At Teabox my role focused on the content creation and social media side of things. They had a practically non-existent social media strategy in operation when I joined, and I was able to set up a lot of the strategy and processes that they still currently use.

Byte Academy was one of my most impactful jobs. Being the first employee of this NYC based company in India, I had the opportunity to set up their operations and campus in India, ultimately leading to a constant stream of students taking the courses. I currently lead all the marketing activities in India.

Extra Curriculars:
I am also a professional model and have worked in Dubai, London and Mumbai. I have been on the cover of Grazia magazine in India, along with editorials in Vogue, Friday, and Grazia. I have also walked at London Fashion Week, Lakme Fashion Week and for top Indian designers such as Sabyasachi, Faraz Manan, Bvlgari Jewellery and Nicolas Oakwell.

I am an avid reader and a big sports fanatic, specifically football and tennis.

Languages: English, Hindi, French (A1), Marathi.

MBA Objective:
After spending a considerable amount of time in both industries - tech and fashion, I am looking to merge the unique skills and experience that I have amassed and relaunch a career in Fashion Retail, specifically Brand Management.

Schools:
Preference: Columbia Business School, NYU Stern, UCLA Anderson, INSEAD
Back up: I haven't thought about my backups yet, but would definitely like to be in a big city.

Thank you in advance!

Hi saloni4591,

Thanks for sharing your profile and questions with us.

Yes, I believe you will have an advantage applying from Dubai as there are more MBA applicants from India.

Your work experience sounds very strong, and it looks like you've had some impressive roles, especially starting up the new operations. And you've had exposure to different offices around the world.

The professional modeling is a nice bonus (though good looks are not required for acceptance :-) ), it shows you have a passion and have also traveled to many places.

I do have a concern about your quant skills -- did you take and do well in quant courses in college? Can you retake the GMAT to score a bit higher?

Your MBA goals make sense, and with your interest in fashion/retail, NYU and UCLA are great options in the US. I also think HEC Paris should be on your list, as they are very well known especially within the luxury fashion/retail world.

Hope this helps!
Kate
