Hi,

I will request you to evaluate my profile. I am looking for admission in next year (2018) and open to schools in US & Europe.

I am 28-year old Male (Nationality: Indian), currently working in US in the IT sector. I have 6 and a 1/2 years of experience overall and for the past 2 and a 1/2 years, I am working in US. I am currently playing the role of a Project Lead in my latest project. Over the course of my overall professional career, I have worked in Insurance, Health Care and Banking domain projects.

Education: B.Tech (Bachelor of Technology) from West Bengal University of Technology (Year: 2010, CGPA: 9.12/10).

GMAT: 710 (Q: 50, V: 37, IR: 8) - I am not including the AWA score as I am yet to get my official score report.

TOEFL: 112 (R: 27, L: 29, S: 26, W: 30).

Short-term goal: Securing employment in Finance sector.

Long-term goal: Probably starting something of my own.

I will really appreciate if you can review my profile and suggest some schools where I have a good chance of getting in.

Thanks.

Hi,

And thanks for reaching out!

You have an interesting profile in a lot of ways but it is not so unique for an Indian applicant and the GMAT score is a bit low for an Indian applicant for the top schools. Therefore, I would suggest the top 10 would be out of reach for you and would suggest you start looking at schools just below that.

But in order to narrow down schools further I would really need you to be a bit more specific about your short term post MBA goal, what specifically are you aiming for within the finance sector?

You could look at some specializations (including for MBA programs outside the top 10) here, and focus on the ones with a ranking for “Finance” as a start:
(see the bottom half of the page)

Hope that helps!


First of all, thanks a lot for your feedback, I really appreciate it.

To answer your questions:

1) I will like to target Investment Banking as my first preference in Finance Sector.

2) There are many schools which I am interested in applying (Not in any specific order):
Insead, Said, Judge, IE Business School, HEC Paris, IMD, Ivey Business School, Owen, SDA Bocconi, Erasmus, Imperial, Darden, Sloan, Yale - can you please let me know if these sound feasible to you or which ones should be reachable based on my profile?

Thanks.

Hi there, given you'll be applying this year, I think it's time to start thinking a bit deeper about what you hope to get out of your MBA experience. You say you're open to US or EU. Over the next few weeks, I recommend you do some research or some self reflection to get a sense of what you truly prefer. Better yet, what do you want. The network and people that surround you will be truly different, meaning the opportunities presented to you will also vary, so it's important to think that through.

While nothing you shared is a red flag to preclude you from gaining admission to your target programs, nothing stands out. At the moment, you'd fall in the middle - an average applicant. Surely these forums aren't the best way to demonstrate why you're different from the pack, but perhaps you could share a few lines about what you believe makes you different.
