This post received
Age 25, Male, Indian

Academic Details:

Xth Grade -83.2%
XIIth Grade - 85.4%
Electronics and Communication Engineering from one of the top 10 Engineering Colleges in India.
Top 10% of the batch , Percentage -76.4%
GMAT - 680 (Q49, V32 , AWA 5 , IR 8)

Work Experience:

2 years 5 months , Technical Sales Engineer: Field Sales Office.

As a technical Sales in one of the top Semiconductor company ,I handle and manage the top clients from Telecom, Industrial, Renewable Energy and Automotive domains . My primary responsibility is to drive revenue and develop sales strategy at these high potential clients.
Work involves understanding the client applications by both technically and commercially by working with the top management.
Recommending suitable semiconductor solutions by leveraging internal applications and systems teams.
Other key functions of my job are Channel Management, Revenue forecasting and development of 'pricing strategies' based on market and competition analysis.
I have been able to generate a business pipeline of $1M since I joined the field sales role.

Also,worked in the US for 8 months in different product groups and conducted market research on upcoming technologies. The data was utilized by the strategic marketing team to affirm the market strategy.

Extra Curricular Activities:

- Chief organizer of the Literary events in the college cultural festival.
- Organized and represented my employer in technical training and workshop at my college.
- Mentored new hires.

MBA Goal :

My immediate goal is to transition to a Product Marketing role in technology company. Long term goal is to get into strategic marketing.
A school strong in technology marketing courses and having a good alumni network in the hi-tech product/ renewable energy companies would be suited for my needs.

Target Schools are :

1) Kellogg
2) Haas
4) Tepper
5) Tuck
6) NUS

I believe a relatively low GMAT score and a slightly less work-ex and no volunteer activities can hinder my chances for admission at top B schools this year. Would want to hear your views and other recommended B-Schools that I can apply to.

Also, would love to hear your views on what can make my profile stronger for these schools if I choose to apply next year.

Very sorry for the delayed response! Somehow your post slipped through the cracks. Thanks for your patience.

I think your professional experience is very strong. I'd say that Kellogg might be a stretch, as Haas and Tuck may be given their small class sizes. I think UCLA and Tepper are good targets, but that there are programs in between that could be worth applying to like Michigan, Duke, Darden? (Or programs in that range). I don't see a lot of post-college extracurricular/volunteer activities, and I do agree that this is a gap in your profile. I would definitely encourage you to incorporate these activities into your profile in the coming months. Take on as many leadership roles as you can inside and outside of work, and perhaps try to gain more exposure to marketing teams at work if you can. Of course, you could retake the GMAT and try to get a 700+ - this would help your chances at top programs.

Good luck!
