Hi,

I am planning to pursue MBA from a globally reputed college. Past few weeks, I've been reaching out to people for suggestions and best suggestion I could get is to post my profile for evaluation here. I hope to get good feedback on my chances for colleges. Thanks in advance :)

My profile:
Age: 26
Nationality: Indian
Work Experience: 4+ years
Current profile: Senior Research Analyst in an Indian firm, working with sell side equity research analyst in global bank (Finance; Investment bank)
Major assignments: Initial Public Offering research of two European firms; Industry initiation with 9 firms (total initiations > 13 firms)
Skills: Equity valuation; financial research and modelling

Education -
- Under-graduation: Civil Engineering (Tier II college: Among top 10 percentile in batch)
- Certifications: CFA (all levels cleared with > 90 percentile score); Post graduation certification in finance (Tier I college: 2nd in the batch) - specialized finance course with exposure to MBA faculty and college resources

Extra activities -
- Active participation in community development: Currently leading a social project to provide better access & knowledge of Literacy, Health & Hygiene and financial literacy facilities to local communities. Helped fundraising for the NGO. I've actively participated in social groups, student organisations and corporate CSR teams for past 7 years.
- Long distance running: Recent participation in Mumbai Marathon in 21k category. Total races: >5 overall (10k - 21k category)

Aspirations –
With deliberate efforts, I’ve maintained a healthy balance of increasing my financial knowledge & skill and following my passion of serving the community. In future, I aspire to combine these two and work with impact investment firms to channelize capital towards social projects.

Hi, and thanks for writing! Looks like you have some strong elements of your profile - 4 years at a global bank, the CFA, and active community involvement. However, in order to suggest target programs, I'd really need to know 1. what your short-term and long-term post-MBA goals are (you mentioned interest in impact investing firms, but not sure what your desired short and long-term path is) 2. geographies you're targeting - where are you open to being after graduation? 3. Your GMAT score - admission is fiercely competitive for Indian applicants, so this is a notable factor 4. the quality of your work experience to date: Have you been promoted? Led initiatives? Received special recognition? Had significant increases in responsibility/compensation?

Hello,

Thanks for writing back. Here are my career objectives -

1. Short term goal - Immediately after MBA, I'd really love to work with a multinational development institution such as (world bank), ADB and CDC.
2. Long term goal - Would like to start my own impact investment firm in order to provide innovative solutions in India
3. Geographies - UK, Canada and Singapore are the preferred locations. I would love to hear other suggestions as well.
4. GMAT score - Currently preparing for GMAT and plan to take it in June. I, however, feel uncomfortable with question adaptive nature of GMAT and planning to switch for GRE. Would that be a good move?
5. Quality of work experience - I've been promoted twice in my organisation and over the course my role has also evolved in terms of responsibilities. I lead the team level projects and mentor new associates at workplace.
6. Other initiatives: As mentioned above, I am currently leading a social project with local communities to provide better access of financial, literacy and health products to underprivileged. Along with the team, I helped raising funds for the local NGO as well.

Thanks in advance for your recommendations :)

Thank you for the additional info! If you feel that the GRE is more suitable and if you won't be able to attain a GMAT score of 730+, you can switch to it, and I would aim for mid 160s on each side. Regarding some programs to target outside the U.S., I think LBS, Oxford Said, Cambridge Judge, Rotman (Toronto), NUS, and HKUST (if you're open to Hong Kong as well) make sense. Hope that helps@
