Hello,

I have 4 years work experience and i will be applying for Class of 2017-18. I will be going for second MBA.

Does, the college has any problem with candidates applying with a prior MBA degree. Also, i already gave GMAT and scored 640. Is the score good for the admission or should i give GMAT again.

Also, are there living quarters available for married students. I will be staying with my wife.

Regards.


Hi,

There should not be any problem because of your previous MBA; in fact, you could use it as a positive if you are clear about why you wish to pursue a second MBA.

I would advice you to improve your GMAT score as it is less than the minimum GMAT score in last two batches.

Family accommodation is available for married students.


Hi,

Thanks for the reply.

What is the minimum and average GMAT score of the last few batch. What is the average work experience of the previous few batch.

Regards.

Hi,

I have a doubt. I have seen from the last year's student records that a majority of selected candidates have international work experience. Does it really matter.
I have a decent profile, but do not have an international experience per se. Here is the profile:
Work Ex: 6.5 years (on March 31st), in a US based Telecom Company as R&D Engineer
GMAT 710
B.Tech 73%
12th 80.8%
10th 86.2%
Drummer and Manager of a Metal band that has done shows across the country and has done few TV episodes for a reputed channel's music program.

So, will the lack of international experience alter my prospects?

Thanks

I would like to ask what is the over emphasis on so called extra curricular activities such as doing social work, community service, being a dancer or singer etc? Is the B-School going to recruit media personalities or politicians? Business is a "for-profit" activity for which logically a business school must measure one's business acumen as much as possible from one's past experience and interview. By reading all the posts in various B-School threads by candidates and admission consultants on such activities i begin to assume that either the candidates posting here do not have an idea going into MBA or the B-Schools do not want mature individuals focused purely on Management Studies? Or is it the case that freshers and experienced are being treated alike? Can someone shed light on this?
.
These things are like an interviewer asking someone "How do you see yourself 5 years from now?". In an uncertain world, the only suitable answer is "I see myself 5 years older" lol. Sorry for venting out but i have little tolerance to irrelevance and I would opt not to even target a B-School that would consider such irrelevant criteria.
.
No one would spend a bomb to end up doing community service or pursue some form of art such as dancing or singing! Or just imagine a senior management person dressed in formals just dancing on the floor amidst of tense environment!! :lol: :lol:

I want to refer GyanOne MBA Admission Consultants for all applicants applying for IIM Bangalore. I have just received my admit from IIM Bangalore, and want to thank GyanOne for their guidance and support for the same. It has been a pleasure working with them, as their service is very professional and focussed. They have expertise in the admission and interview processes of all top IIMs, and I have certainly benefitted a lot from the same. Cheers

Hello everyone,

I am planning to apply for IIMB EPGP R2 this year; and it will be great if I can talk to current students, alumni to get a better understanding of the program and its prospects.

I would like some feedback on my potential chances based on my profile:

I have around 7.5 years work ex in the industry. Working as a Tech Lead at a product development MNC and looking for a role change.
I make short films on social topics for fun.

I have 2 MS degrees with research exp from USA along with work exp from the US. I was wondering if IIMB considers academic research exp as work exp because then I will have around 10.

GMAT score : 720 (Q49, V 40) AWA : 5 and IR 3
I am a bit worried about the IR, can someone experienced let me know if it might negatively impact my chances during the admission process?

Looking forward to your reply

Thanks
