What i want to Know ?
1) Is profile good for any of top 30 Mba colleges, if yes then what are the colleges i should aim for because i don't want to spend more than 40-50 k $ ( total for 2 years)?
2) can i get scholarships(full or atleast half)?
3) what should i do more to make my profile more relevant?
4) Would a work ex(after my startup) of logisitcs and delivery or advertising more beneficial, if ultimately want to get into a Business Strategy and Development profile (post mba)
5) Best colleges(ROI point of view and possible %age placement) for Business Devlepment profile.

Hi there,

Thanks for the detailed background! Your profile is certainly good enough for top 30 programs, but you'll need to focus your story on a couple things. You're a bit on the younger side, so make sure you show your leadership capacity through your work experience and your community involvement. Maturity is one thing that the AdComm should have no question when they read your application.

What's your GMAT? This is the final piece of the puzzle for your academic profile that will give me a better sense of where you fall when it comes to scholarship opportunities.

The two goals are vastly different. Starting your own business as an entrepreneur versus working as a senior analyst or manager in manager for a MNC require different skills and capabilities. My suggestion would be to pick one goal and focus your story on that track.

Looking forward to your responses!

Hi,
I have gained a good experience in my startup and would love to start or continue with it post MBA, but the main problem is that it is so unpredictable and time taking, that i won't be able to do it just after mba, keeping in mind my family conditions. After all, everyone wants to get settled at some stage.. Don't you think so?
I am preparing for GMAT and will be giving it soon. Hope i get a good score..

Well best of luck on your GMAT. As for your goals, if the opportunity is too risky and you need a more reliable career path in the near term, then yes, working for a MNC is the best route. However, ultimately, this choice is up to you. Feel free to check out our free resources to get you started on your preparation. Best of luck!
