Hi all,
Firstly I thanks all for spending your time on evaluating my profile.
I am looking for good MBA universities in Canada.

My profile
10th marks- 7cgpa
12th marks- 54%
BBA(3years) from IP university, Delhi- 75% with distinction

Gmat not yet given, but expecting around 650

My Queries:
1) Do I need WES for my degree, I checked free WES tool and that shows my BBA equals to 4 years Degree in Canada.
2) Will my work experience count being an unregistered firm.
3) will Gmat improve my current profile ?
4) What Universities I can look for ?
5) What should be the deadline for getting my docs. ready for sep'20 intake ?
6) Any other suggestions as you may deem fit.

I have short listed following universities :

ii) University of British Columbia – Sauder School of Business
iii) University of Windsor
iv) University of Waterloo
v) Vancouver Island University
vi) Ryerson University
vii) Simon Fraser University

Hi Rajat9428,

Few thoughts on your profile, your education is on the decent side except your UG grades are good. Working in your father's business can be considered a full-time career, until and unless you have something to show your contribution towards it. You have to showcase yourself to the adcom how you have helped your father to grow his business with your innovative ideas, value creation, and entrepreneurship skills.

1)No need to get the WES for your degree if it is equivalent to 4 years degree in Canada, but to be on the safest side you can write to Adcom asking whether do you really need WES to apply to their MBA program.
2)Yes, if you have proper documentation to prove that you have initiated a new idea to improve your father business and contributed your full time towards its growth.
3)Since GMAT is one of the essential criteria to apply for an MBA, having a good GMAT i.e above the average score would certainly make changes on your profile.
4)Most of the schools shortlisted above are suitable for you to apply, predicting if you have your expected GMAT score. Considering almost all the schools mentioned here have their average GMAT around 650.
5)You can Keep the required documents ready by month of June or July since R1 deadlines will be starting from Aug'19. It is suggested to apply in R1 if you're looking forward to a scholarship.
6)I am afraid to judge your profile fit for any school now since a lot of major information is missing here like your extra curriculum, post-MBA goals.

If possible do tell us more about your extra curriculum and future goals after MBA, to give us more clarity on your profile to share more inputs on your profile.

Hello Rajat9428

Congratulations on choosing Canada as destination, great country for living :thumbup:


Do you need WES evaluation and is your degree equal to bachelor or 4 year degree is question that you need to ask every university on you application list.

Will your working experience count as being unregistered is quite questionable, again you need to ask them directly, how do you prove them your qualifications in those terms.

Yes good GMAT score improves overall profile.


Double checking of best universities/business schools in Canada can be done by visiting my post about it, all necessary info are there along with average GMAT scores for easier targeting :idea: :

https://gmatclub.com/forum/mba-in-canad ... l#p2174726


Deadlines can differ, you seriously need to visit websites of schools you want to apply, before asking those redundant question here.


From your list I can recommend : Schulich, Sauder, Waterloo, Ryerson, Simon Fraser and Queen's as good choice, the rest I would skip. ;)



Good Luck with application :geek: :cool:

Hi there!
Thanks for sharing your profile. Let’s tackle the questions you have posed one by one

1) Do I need WES for my degree, I checked free WES tool and that shows my BBA equals to 4 years Degree in Canada.
In most instances, you will not need a WES. However, it is always a good idea to check with the school directly so there are no surprises.

2) Will my work experience count being an unregistered firm.
Yes, that should not be a problem as long as you are able to clearly articulate your role and contributions at the firm.

3) will Gmat improve my current profile ?
GMAT is one of the most objective aspects of your application and having a higher GMAT will definitely increase your chances of getting into a target school. It will also help offset the relatively low work experience to a certain extent so give it your best shot.

4) What Universities I can look for ?
It is very tough to recommend universities without knowing your goals and the kind of work you have been doing. As a general rule, look into the resources and opportunities that the school provides and have conversations with alumni and current students to figure out a good fit for you.

5) What should be the deadline for getting my docs. ready for sep'20 intake ?
Round 1 deadlines for most schools start around September so if all your documents are in order by then, you should be good to go. Note that you don’t require all the official documentation to apply. These are requested (if at all), after admissions.

6) Any other suggestions as you may deem fit.
We would encourage you to think about your future goals and how these schools align with them. It is especially important since you are at the lower end of the work experience range for most of these schools. It is also important to remain aware of the timelines so you can plan well for the year. Just working on your application may take up to 2-3 months, try getting done with your GMAT not later than July.

Feel free to get in touch with us with more information about your profile (GMAT, extra curriculars, goals etc) in case you have further questions.

Hi,

Please help me in my Profile evaluation for MBA from NUS or NTU.

10th -94.4%
12th - 89.4%
B.Tech - IIT Delhi, 8.1 cgpa
Work experience- 5 years

I have been working in the field of healthcare analytics and consulting.

GMAT not given yet, but expecting 700, since I decided quite late and haven't got sufficient time to prepare. What will be a decent score to apply?

Hi nitish1305

You can check my link below for average GMAT scores at NUS, NTU and other Asian business schools:

https://gmatclub.com/forum/mba-in-asia- ... l#p2189456

Apparently scoring around 700 would be more than enough ;)



Good Luck :cool:
