GMAT 710 (Q49/V39); 92 (83%/88%)
Nationality :Indian

GPA: 8 on scale of 10

Work Experience: Total - 4 years
1 st 2.5 years:Major Machine Design and Factory automation firm

0.5 years experience in vendor management.
1 year shop floor supervisor. handled a group of technicians for machine building and commissioning.
1 year design of machine and assembly lines for product assembly( responsible for whole project from initial discussion to commissioning) .

Next 1.5 years: Major automobile firm from Europe.

Part of company cricket team.
Member of organizing committee for cultural as well as technical fests at college.
Internship at Indian Institute of Management Bangalore as assistant to prof. on writing a operations management book for 2 months.

1) Green Belt six sigma.
2) learning German( if that helps).

Why MBA?

The main focus is Operations Management and supply chain.
short term:To gain more experience and exposure in any of major operations or supply chain companies
long term: To take over family business ( not that big) of import and export of heavy machinery( related to operations and supply chain).

Target Schools
Match :Tepper, Ross,ISB, Said.
Safety:NUS, Krannert (purdue), Cranfield

My cause for worry is that I do not have enough quality of WE. Should I wait another year? I don't have any subordinates who report to me. I do not have a promotion to show for as I switched jobs when i was to be promoted. I most probably will be promoted next year beginning.
All that said I will still get glowing recommendations.
Is it a weakness to be an applicant with mostly technical experience?

Request you to please evaluate my profile and advise if I the list seems realistic and if I need to add/remove some schools.

Appreciate your help


Work with hope in Heart and dreams in the eyes .... And leave the mind for GMAT problems ;)

Thanks for all the detail in your profile--it actually helps to know what your post MBA plans are and often this info is left out of profiles for some reason. I actually think you have a good profile overall--one that could potentially set you up for differentiation from your fellow Indian applicants (with whom you will be compared for admissions of course). The reasoning is the consistency and overall theme that you have woven throughout your career--even all the way back to UG. You call it technical experience, but it's what I would say is more industrial. Industrial experience is more rare to find and having insight into the manufacturing process, and even contributing to it by designing assembly lines etc. will be both unusual and memorable (and therefore valuable) to the admissions committees.

What you need to make sure you do in the application process is to connect the dots and make sure this theme is solidly represented throughout your application. Having a clear vision for your future that is well connected to your past is a safer bet for b-schools than someone who has a loosley connected or worse an unconnected background. What you offer to your classmates is a perspective on supply chain and industry that most learn only from books. I think your school selections are reasonable--just make sure your application is well written and compelling.
