Hey there, I am an Indian Male with an IT cum technology consulting background. Total WE 48 months.

Currently working with a Big 4 as a SAP consultant and a team lead. Got promoted twice in 3 yrs
Have worked for and implemented SAP suite for automobile manufacturing, Banking and service based clients from Europe and the US.
Travelled to the US twice for client go-lives. Been interacting with international clients for more than 3 yrs.

Planning to attend the class of 2021 (starting next yr 2019). Taking up GMAT arnd July this year, hoping for 710-720. Undergrad gpa arnd 3.2, non IIT

My post MBA goals include :

1. Strategy consulting at Deloitte, PwC Strategy &, AT Kearney etc. (MBB is distant)

2. Product strategy and mgmt at tech companies like SAP, Oracle, Workday, FAANG etc.

I know both these goals maybe look quite different but, I have gone thru them for a year now and thts what appeals to me. I wanna do one of them, in tht order.

Does tht look feasible as an international student in Trump's US, given the struggles

Am looking at following univs:

McCombs ----> Grp 1 (Dream)
Emory

Vanderbilt Owen
Fosters --------> Grp 2 (Stretch)
USC Marshall

Georgia Tech Scheller
Indiana Kelley
Mays
Mendoza --------> Grp 3(Reach Stretch)

UC Irvine Merage
Simon ------> Grp 4 (Reach Safe)

Any changes or addition to the targets as per my goals? (I'll have to select 7-8 of these)

Hi there, thanks for reaching out. The fast promotions are great and the exposure to teams across countries is definitely something to highlight too.

With your GPA, I would target a 720 or higher for some of the schools on your list.

I think both goals sound feasible given your background. I would pick one and go with that in your application, though if you ever get asked about backup goals, it's great you've already thought through an alternate path.

I think overall, your list of schools is good, and I can see connections to your goals with schools like Foster. I worry a bit that McCombs and Emory could be tough, though it's good to aim high and hopefully the GMAT turns out well.

Good luck!
