Please reviw my profile
I want a basic assessment of my profile to find out suitable colleges for me.
ON 4th August, I appeared for the GMAT for the third time and scored 730 (q50, V38 IR 7 AWA 4.0).

I am a male 31, Engineer, Graduated in 2010 from Haldia Institute of Technology and scored 8.44 (DGPA) out of 10.
I have an experience of 6.4 years in PSU (NALCO), A govt of India Enterprise.
Of which 1 year as a GET. Next 3 years as a Junior Manager. Then after working as
an Asst. Manager (E&I) at mines. For the first five years, I am in operation department of
Power Plant, Responsible for Power generation, energy export and import. Then after I started working at Bauxite Mines of the same Company. I responsibility involves all the E&I related activities,
Spares planning and all the E&I related projects.
Got two no of SARJANA AWARDS from my Company.
In the Year 2015, I got elected as a Joint Secretary of our Officers' Association. As a Joint Secretary
I am representing the entire officers' community in front of Higher management.
I am sponsoring a girl Child towards her education from the last 4 years through world vision India.
Proposed a plan to our operations department to start a program to feed orphans at a local orphanage. Through which, every month, we are giving 100kgs.
few more extra curricular activities are there.

The basic reason for MBA
Though selection process at PSU is very rigorous, after getting selected, Jobs at PSU offer very little challenges.
Work is full of Monotony. One will feel stagnated after working for few years. You get promotions after every 3 years but
the nature of works remain same for at least 15 years. You have wait too long to become GM, even if you talented.
Please do suggest the name of few colleges to which I can apply

Overall you have some excellent accomplishments both professionally and in giving back to the community and those will be favorable in the MBA application process- keep in mind - however- that you will need to come up with a more compelling "why" for the MBA-
as you won't want to speak about being bored or stagnant in current role- that just sounds like complaining from the adcom side. So ask yourself- what role do you seek post MBA? International work? Consulting? Energy? clean energy?Have some compelling story of what you are going TO and not running FROM! This makes all the difference in how you are seen by adcom and once you know what you are looking FOR then the school selection becomes easier- are you looking to deepen your understanding of energy? Then look to some of the US schools in Texas like Rice or UT Austin for specific programs to help you reach your goal. Don't approach this as ... I have a 730 GMAT so where can I get in with that- this score can be admitted to any top 20 program- but it is the WHY that will get you over the finish line. Also look where that 730 is a bit over the avg so your application stands out more. Hope that helps somewhat and we have some excellent counselors with experience in energy industry and all professional areas so we can match you with the right counselor to talk more about how to present well in this process. Please reach out for a free consult at this link: https://stratusadmissionscounseling.com ... b-visitor/ and here is a great webinar to watch about how to pick your own MBA program: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L6Qwf1keExQ
Best wishes and I hope you reach out to us to learn more about how we can help!

What role do you seek post MBA? International work? Consulting? Energy? clean energy?
Post MBA I want to move ahead in the same domain but as a consultant. An MBA can help me learn how to become a good consultant.
Consulting will offer me new learning whenever I am involved with a new client and new project.

As we all know the job of a consultant is tough. He has to move from one place to another. He has to meet different clients. He has to talk to people who are not coming from the same culture. So an MBA whose class is diverse can help me learn different cultures and mindsets. Even I learn How to accommodate myself in such a culture. And an International MBA can give me all that. And yes I am looking for international work
