Hi mbaMission team,

Could you please have a look at my profile:

GMAT-720; GPA 7/10
Graduation- Integrated 5yrs Masters in Chemistry from IIT Bombay, India in 2012 (Not Engineering)
Work Ex - Family Business worth INR 200 million annual turnover (last four years and counting) & Fortune 500 Corporate job in analytics (1 year after graduation)
Other Details: Indian, Male, 29 years old

I can get good recommendations from our supplier sides (famous multi national companies) and from my manager from 1st job.

After MBA I wish to take up a few years stint in Management Consulting and ultimately come back to family business to take over as CEO and expand our business territory.

Can you suggest how does my profile look and where should I apply considering management consulting or general management as fields of focus.

Hi klrahul,

From what you shared, I think your profile is really strong. The family business experience will be attractive to schools, and different from many other applicants. Getting recommendations in a family business can often be tough, so I'm glad you have some good options. Your first manager is not as recent as I'd like, but if that's the best option for the second letter, then that makes sense.

Your academic background and GMAT are great too. And your goals make sense. Make sure you identify a few key learning goals for both the MBA and your time in management consulting -- the skills and experiences you specifically need to be prepared to take on a CEO role.

Any extracurricular activities? If not, that could be a weak area.

As for schools, given your goals, I would look at schools like Kellogg and Columbia and INSEAD on the more competitive side, and then mix in some schools like Ross, Darden, Cornell, Duke.

Best of luck!
Kate

Thank you Kate for the encouraging reply. You have certainly elevated my confidence level.

As far as second recommendation is concerned, I can ask another supplier to chip in. Can you suggest examples of other potential LOR people? I dont want to rope in any of our clients because they do not work with me all the time but rather sporadically and I think LOR should be from someone who works with you frequently. I hope I am not wrong in my understanding.

Thanks,
Rahul

Great!

Yes, I agree, the recommender should be someone you interact with frequently and can provide specific examples of your strength. Beyond suppliers and clients, are there non-family peer colleagues who you work with frequently? Or a third-party adviser (lawyer, accountant, board member, etc.)? Another possibility is to use someone non work related, like if you are significantly involved in volunteer work or other extracurriculars, but I would only do that if it's significant involvement. Your former manager may be the best option, especially if you've kept in touch, I just wanted to make sure you're considering all your options.

Good luck!
Kate
