Hi there - thanks for writing! I think you have some solid work experience and extracurriculars. I think your GMAT target is wise for the schools you're interested in. Regarding which schools are a match - that depends on what you'd like to do (and in which geography you'd like to live/work) post-MBA. Can you share some details on that? Thanks!

Hi,

Thank you for your quick answer,
I have a preference for emerging countries (ASEAN [currently taking mandarin lessons], Sub-Saharan Africa). The industries I target are consulting or Private Equity.
Regarding developed countries (UK, Switzerland or Canada).

Thank you for your advice!

Thanks for your reply! If you're able to get the GMAT you're targeting, LBS is also a good choice. Top finance schools in the U.S. include Booth, Wharton, and Columbia among others. Queens, Oxford, and Cambridge are also worth a good look.

I hope that provides a good start! If you want to discuss your profile in more depth, I definitely recommend signing up for a free consultation here: https://www.mbamission.com/consult/?dis ... admissions

Hi,

I would like an evaluation of my profile in order to see where I stand in the admission process for a MBA abroad.

Area of Interest : MBA - Marketing
Work Experience : 7 years
Background : IT
Current Employer : Verizon
Undergrad GPA : 83% (I'm not sure how equivalent it is on a 4.0 scale)
GRE : 311 M 157 V 154
TOEFL : yet to take - expired score was 105
10th and 12th grade : 91%
In addition to my IT experience I started my own venture of silk textiles on a small scale through social media.

I'm interested in a decent b school preferably with scholarship.
Mays Business school Texas A&M
Carey School of business ASU
IIT Chicago
Penn State SMEAL school of business
UTD Jindall school of business

Would it be possible for more suggestions of b schools that suit my profile? My main concern would be good placement records.

Thank You!
