Hello Veritas Team of Experts - Hope you all are doing good !!

Could somebody please evaluate my profile and let me know of my chances ? I am looking for a one year executive Full time Residential MBA, most probably from India.

Target Schools - IIM A, IIM B, IIM C, ISB (Please help me out if I should stretch out my search for colleges outside India as well and gain good scholarship. Money is a special consideration if I plan to look for colleges outside India).

Indian IT male, Total Experience - 7 years and 3 Months, planning to apply for MBA in 2014 (I am also OK with applying in 2015 if things do not go as planned)

Graduation - 79% - 7.9/10 (stood first among Boys)
12th - 71%
10th - 70%
GMAT - yet to appear (Targeting score between 720-740)

Work experience ranges from working in a healthcare domain to a Finance domain (current job)

- Working with 3th Largest U.S. Telecommunication company (CenturyLink) after Verizon and AT&T
- Leading a Team of 5 and working in a project that maintains and processes payments coming from 10-15 different interfaces with a customer base in good numbers
- 3 Months International Experience on a business trip

Awards At Work -
- Best Mentor Award in the Mid West Client Delivery Group (it basically had 3 different sub units that in turn had different clients)
- Spot Award Winner
- AE Award Winner (won a trophy and cash voucher)
- Director's Recognition Award from the Director of the India Technology Centre
- Nominated for Outstanding Service Provider Award - The biggest recognition of the company (waiting for the results, fingers crossed)
- Various Other appreciation emails from onshore
- Have also been involved in catching a high Business Impacting issue where the company might have suffered losses in good amounts had the issue went unnoticed
- Nominated for the Bug Star of the Week Event held in the Organization

Extra-Curricular Activities
- Have been a part of Organization's Employee club Team that organizes fests, games events, fund raising, CSRs, etc.
- Involved in anchoring of Organization's event shows
- Sponsoring a Child
- Recently teamed up with a NGO to understand their work flow and will be soon involved in drawing a flowchart of their business, putting ideas that emphasize more on productivity, more customers, less turn around time, etc.

Post MBA Goal - I plan to go into Financial services Industry or a Management Consulting (My first preference would be to land up with a Banking Job. I am basically looking to switch my industry post MBA from IT to something like Management consulting or Financial Services)

Are my plans realistic or am I just aiming too high ? Please do guide me if there are some other courses that I should sign up to increase my chances. I am open to other options as well post MBA.

Thanks in advance for your time and help !!

Rahul Sehgal

Best Regards,

Financial services industry actuallly recruits quite heavily from MBA ranks who have no prior experience in the industry. Most firms have robust training programs, and are simply looking for bright and eager recruits. For this reason, I would say your goals are reasonable, particularly if you get interested in equity analysis in the industry from which you hail. As for scholarships, it's tough for international students to get scholarships in the US, but you could very well be positioned in a good light for scholarships in India. Most scholarship and fellowship funds go in the first round, so hopefully you are already at work on applications. Let us know if you need any assistance.
