Hi, I will be having an work experience of 2yrs by the time I start applying to the universities. I am aiming for GMAT score above 720. My main target is to get into top 30 universities and mostly in Europe.
I did my undergraduation from reputed college (IIT) in electrical engineering. I am currently working as Assistant Manager in a world reputed metal industry (Vedanta Resources).
Is my aim too ambitious as i am having very less experience and aiming at very top universities.
I also request you all to suggest me how to improve my GMAT score.
Thanks

Your work experience will be on the shallow side of the pool.
2 is the absolute minimum number of work experience years. European programs, esp Masters Programs often have less stringent requirements. However, the better work experience you have pre-MBA, the better chances/opportunities you have for getting a job and appealing to employers. I would recommend waiting until you have 3 years before applying and before you have perhaps a promotion and a proven track record/projects completed/etc.

There are several programs in the US (don't know any similar programs in Europe) for early career candidates, take a look at this list: https://aringo.com/deferred-enrollment/

Hi yogithkrishna,

While you have a fine academic background and work experience with a very reputed name, the duration of your work experience will be quite on the borderline for the programs you are targetting. We recommend that you get at least one additional year of work experience. Not only will this help you leverage your existing credentials but also provide you a greater number of talking points for your essays. Use this time wisely in order to build your profile :)

All the best!
