Hello!

I intend to pursue MBA in Europe / USA with specialisation in Strategy / International Business. I intend to pursue career at a Consultancy firm.

I graduated last year(2017) doing Bachelors in Mechanical Engineering. I decided to attempt CAT this year without taking up a job. So currently I have no job and wish to take one up with the relevent work experience that would help me while applying for MBA.

My details:

1) Gender - M

2) Age - 22 years

3) Academics (India)
Bachelors in Mechanical Engg. (First Class - Mumbai University)

4) Work experience- nil

5) Internship (insignificant)- 1 month in AirIndia Ltd in engineering department.

6) EC: Organized few events with around 100-150 people. Violinist. Nothing much here.(Wish to develop)

7) GMAT - YET to appear.

8) Reason for MBA - 1) Work as a Business consultant.
2) Improve my network.
3) Get a global perspective and experience.
4) Boost my career.
5) Accelerate career growth.
6) Start my own consultancy firm, after age of 35, focussed at improving business in rural/non-urban areas.

9) Strengths - High learning ability, Detailed and analytical thinking, goal oriented, self motivated and dedicated.

10) Weakness - Not enough experience in handling people, limited business knowledge.

I would appreciate if you could advise me on my profile and suggest me on the right business school/ Profile development/ GMAT attempt and application planning.

Warm regards

DP

DP, its not very clear whether you want to do an MBA now or a few years down the line.
If you wish to get into a program now, look out for the MIM courses: http://rankings.ft.com/businessschoolra ... ement-2017
If you wish to get into an MBA a few years later, your priority right now should be to find a job. Any good MBA program, even the Indian 2 year MBAs take (or prefer, in the case of Indian MBAs) candidates with some work experience.

Your immediate requirement is to get a job. A large part of your profile development will happen on the job, through the experiences you build and the impact you create.
I'd not say that you should jump at any job you get- be thoughtful about what kind of jobs match your interest and where you will have a meaty role, with opportunities to learn. However, do not let the break increase indefinitely because you will then have to explain it whenever you do an MBA. A gap over 4-5 months can be painful later.

GMAT scores are valid for 5 years, so you can take the GMAT when you wish. If you plan to take it now before starting a job, do it alongside the job search- the GMAT should not be the reason for not finding a job.

Hi DJay101,

Apologies for the delay in responding to you but we hope this will be of help :)

First things first, you must get yourself some professional experience. This is the most important step in building up your profile and skills, and hopefully your achievements at work will give you a number of talking points for the MBA essays. Secondly, you could take the GMAT whenever you are confident about being well-prepared. In any case, the scores are valid for five years and that will not be an issue :)

While the above is undoubtedly very important, you could also focus on engaging in activities in the social sector. Take up some leadership roles rather than gaining mere volunteering experience. Moreover, you could also look at clubs such as Toastmasters for some leadership and public-speaking training :) Again, all these aspects will help add value to your profile and meat in your essays :)

Should you need to discuss your case in greater detail and get more inputs on systematic profile building, please get in touch with us.

All the best! :)
