Hi,
I am 27 yrs old,female from India. I am planning to get through Fall'19 Mba in Canada.
I have been working for the past 2 yrs in the retail banking segment with a nationalized bank in India.
Before that I had worked as a business analyst for around a year.
I have a masters degree in Applied Economics with 63% where we focused on econometrics and finance.
My bachelor's degree was also in economics from the University of Calcutta with first class honors marks.
The reason I am looking at an MBA degree is because I want to expand my knowledge regarding financial markets (after my banking experience) and eventually look towards consulting in the same domain.
How good/bad are my chances in getting through a top b-school in Canada
P.S. I am yet to take the GMAT (expected to take it by summer 2018)
Thanks

Hey there,
Well it's hard to say without a GMAT first of all. But get a great GMAT, and many doors can open up to you.

Other than that, do start thinking about the other things you can do to boost your profile:
I would like to present you with a list of ideas, which should help you:


- Definitely do at least one if not real real volunteer works while you are working. The BEST possible volunteer work is anything that has to do with leadership or fundraising, so if you see those opportunities, jump on them!

- Make sure you do the best possible at work, taking any opportunities to lead, to get involved in social events, to advance at work, and remain at the top.

- Likewise try and keep up your life! What I mean is that schools LOVE candidates who have a broad range of activities and interests. So sports, culture, whatever. As always, if it is leadership roles you are taking on they are better than non-leadership roles.

- If you have any interest in entrepreneurship as a side project, it can be good to have that in your profile.

- If you have any interest in politics as a side project, it can be good to have that in your profile.

There are probably more things that I am not yet thinking about, but this is a very good place to start!

Best,


Second of all, you may want to wait at least 1 if not 2 or 3 years, as two years of experience in retail banking is likely not enough experience for a good Canadian MBA.
