Planning to do my MBA in 2019

- CFA Charterholder (U.S.A)
- Chartered Accountant (I.C.A.I, India)
- Diploma in IFRS (A.C.C.A)
- GMAT: 700

Work Experience:

- Audit Assistant (Internship) for Financial Sector Industries like Banks, AMCs & Mutual Funds
* 3 years ( 2011 - 2014 )

* 2 Years 8 Months (2014 - 2017)

Also, will my CFA & CA be taken into consideration by Universities ? As doing those 2 courses at the same time with my Undergrad is what costed me my GPA

Hi there,

Looks like you've had nice career progression - which is fantastic! Unfortunately, as an Indian male you are competing in a very tough category where average GMAT scores are typically 730+. Some of our former adcom folks recommend Indian candidates shoot for 740+ to really be competitive. I would recommend that you retake the exam and then that will help you focus in on a target range for schools. Best of luck!
