Hi,

While there is no prescribed educational background preferred for an ideal MBA Candidate, IMO I think you shouldn't pivot your career because of the current COVID19 situation. Firstly, your lack of work ex will hinder your profile both in getting admitted and getting the most out of an MBA. Secondly, the economic crises will resolve its a matter of 1-2 years. I'd recommend you stick to your passion and somehow struggle through it.

Hi - would really appreciate an analysis of my profile as well. Below is my profile - I am keen to look at marketing and/or strategy studies oriented MBA programmes. Need help with shortlisting colleges - my preference is towards 1 - year programmes like the one at ISB Hyderabad, but open to other programmes too. Thanks!

I am 26 years old female candidate and come from a communication and marketing background with work ex of 4 years. Graduated from University of Delhi with BA Hons in Journalism, where I studied several subjects like political science, economics, international relations, print, radio and TV journalism, and marketing and advertising, besides others.

From there on, got interested in marketing and studied at the Indian Institute of Mass Comm for a PG Diploma in Advertising and PR.

I have 4+ years of work experience, including a currently ongoing 2+ year stint at a leading international airline where I am responsible for consumer marketing portfolio.

Here are my scores:
10th Std - 85.4%
12th Std (Science) - 77%
Graduation - 75.25%
PG Diploma - 72.05%
GMAT (expected, yet to take the exam) - 690-710

I was awarded the Public Relations Society of India (PRSI) Award in 2016; and was nominated by my firm for a 30 Under 30 Industry Award. I have worked with a Delhi based NGO working in the space of emotional education of children for about 1-1.5 years. I also have a lot of internships at college level with organizations like Indian Express and BBDO (ad agency). During my graduation and the PG Diploma, I have worked on several live projects like documentary film-making, authoring original dissertations and seminar papers, radio programmes, ad film-making, and an award-winning capstone project for a leading Indian Home Care brand.

Hi gpranjal30,
I like that you have a strong academic track record (undergrad at IIT, GMAT), robust work track record (leading teams as Project Manager, international work experience in the US), as well as being a student athlete and student leader. I think you have a strong profile for the schools on your list. I don't think there's a difference between US and European schools in terms of consulting and banking / retail. That said, it depends on where you plan to build your career. If you prefer to work in Europe, European schools would allow you to connect with more European classmates. If you'd like to work in North America, then you will find more US classmates in US schools.

I’m happy to discuss other specific questions about your profile in a 1:1 consult. Wishing you the best in your MBA journey!
