To set context - I am an Indian male working in marketing field with a B tech degree (GPA=3.7). I gave my GMAT on 28th July and scored 650. Because of the low score I will be giving it again on 29th August. I am able to consistently score from 700 to 720 in my mocks. Currently, I am facing a hurdle with the selection of B schools. I have 1 year of work experience and since score is valid for 5 years I want to get done with the GMAT ASAP.

My whole Work Experience has been in Digital marketing. I have around all the certificates which google has listed for digital marketing. Because of my presence in the marketing agency my company was able to endorse Google adwords certified. Along with that I have been used as a filler for my company where I have done modelling for the products which the company endorses. Also, I was involved in various outreach and strategy development programmes like convincing the local businesses to incorporate affiliate marketing. There are a lot of other things as well but I hope this paints a picture. In addition to this I am now the manager in the company so will be leading a team of 7 to 11 people singlehandedly for all the marketing campaigns.

In college I was the founder of an NGO club which head raised funds around Rs45,000 in a year. I addition to that I was the coordinator(head position) of the astronomy club in the college and was responsible for various activities. I have been in town hall and sang on auspicious occasions like Republic day in front of high dignitaries like city collector etc.

Keeping in mind the score and my profile till now can you suggest me some B schools across US, Canada and Europe (mentioning all the three because I don't know which one to choose) which can be targeted in this range. I don't want to be too ambitious and fill the universities which are out of my scope. Also, I don't want to be blinded by the rankings which are available in the market for the B schools. Since GMAT allows us to choose 5 schools of our choice for free, I don't want to waste that opportunity. But I don't have enough information to take a wise decsion. Therefore I am seeking for help.

It would also be really beneficial if you could also let me know what should I do in order to further strengthen up my profile.

Hi Sannidhya,

Sounds like you're off to a strong start in your digital marketing role. The certifications and team lead experience are great. Keep that up, and aim to have even more leadership exposure (also possibly any international work?) before you apply.

Also seems like you were involved in activities during college, but less so recently, so recommend you pick up some of those again or restart new ones, to improve that side of your profile and show a track record of community involvement by the time you apply.

It's tough to advise on specific schools without knowing your final GMAT score and your post-MBA goals too. You've got plenty of time to do that research, so recommend you focus first on getting the highest GMAT score possible and then deciding what's realistic based on your score. It would help to at least begin narrowing by region (US, Canada, Europe) and for that I would consider your post-MBA goals / job opportunities in each region plus where you'd like to live eventually too!

Best of luck,
Kate
