This post was
Hi, I am an Economics & Business undergrad student in the Netherlands in my last year and planning to follow a Masters at a grande école in France.

Could you (people studying there or with sufficient knowledge about their intake requirements)
provide me with some of your profiles that allowed you to be admitted?

It would be of very great help. Thank you in advance.

Maybe I should add that I have
- no work experience (I could find an internship?),
- GMAT not yet taken (what points should I secure minimum?)
- expect to graduate with 7.1/10 average grade. in my undergrad Economics degree (with higher average grades in 2nd and 3rd year, 75%-80% --> 90% or higher are barely reached by students here)
- some extracurricular activities in a student association + private tutoring
- German nationality, fluent in French, expecting to stay in France for a living.

I don't have much hope (due to my undergrad average grade) but I'd really like to know their requirements.

Any advise is appreciated.
EDIT: I saw so many profile evaluations on this forum, so I hoped someone would reply to my thread:/

From my experience, I find that admission to top MSc programs places great emphasis on GPA and GMAT score. So make sure you send in your best GMAT score. The next important criteria is probably international exposure and a sense of career plan. Good luck!

Well there is no fixed profile that MiM schools love, i guess diversity is the key. If you can prove you bring something different to the table, which would add value to the batch. You can get in top schools even with low GPA scores and relatively average GMAT. Google MiM-Essay, our site has loads of information on the Masters in Management degree and how to get into one.

Well as for your profile evaluation

No..... work ex is not a problem, as the MiM is targeted towards young graduates and working professionals with less than 2-3 years of work ex.
But i am sure you can mention part time jobs, or other volunteering works you have done, & basically highlight the skills you have gained from them. This will help a lot, as most of your competition already has decent work ex.

For the top 3 grand ecoles you can aim for a GMAT above 680, to maximize your chances. Above 700 and with good essays, you would surely get an interview call.

For your CGPA, schools consider how hard the grading system is & don't blindly draw the line at a 9.0 CGPA. So if you have a decent percentile you should be ok, also you can explain in your essays the reason why you think you CGPA is low( i hope you were doing something interesting along with your studies, so highlight that)

Extracurricular activities are the strongest levers to attract the ad com, and must be highlighted. If you have association or volunteering experience. Highlight your achievements, your learning and what skills you gained, It will go a long way

Knowing French is awesome! This will surely get you some brownie points with the Ad comm ( The interview panel gave me a really hard time, about my knowledge of french)
Also you can check out my interview experience for HEC and ESCP here ... -escp.html
