Hi prasanths89,

Thank you for your post and for sharing your profile. You have a very strong background. Below are my responses to your questions.


[*]How does Rotman treat 2nd MBA applicants, the reason for apply is to have a global exposure and move into more of higher management roles (my current role i am more focused on Supply Chain) Your existing role seems to expose you to a plethora of cultures that enable you to have a breadth of global experience. Your strategic development, however, is something you might want to focus on and clearly articulate in your application. Your second MBA will not be an issue so long as you can express the reason why you require it. The qualitative component of your application will be very important here.
[*]GMAT score is low is there anyway i can compensate for that as I am travelling so frequently i cannot re-take. Your GMAT is slightly below average. I would not worry about your score, especially since you have proven in both undergraduate and graduate programs your academic prowess.


If you would like to continue the conversation, please reach out to schedule a free 30-minute consultation (contact details in signature).

Good luck!

Hello ab52

There is no 'single' factor that Rotman looks at. It will evaluate your profile on a combination of factors mentioned here.
Multiple GMAT attempts should not weaken your profile as you have shown consistent improvement. 680 is not a deal breaker for Rotman, though higher would have helped.
At this stage I'd say your profile has the goods (Acads, Work Ex, Extracurricular), but to deliver them you will need to showcase your career goals (missing from your post) and their fit with Rotman.
Let me know if you have further questions.

Best
