Dear Experts,

I need some help in evaluating my profile

Indian + Male,
Engineer passed out in 2015

Experience as a Project engineer and Project Manager for about 4 years now in Siemens
GMAT score is 710 and IELTS is 7.0,
My GPA is quite low that is 2.5

so my question is
Is my profile weak to get to universities like NUS/INSEAD/CBS? if yes what can be done to improve my chances of getting into those institutes?

Hi jkjsadkjadksj

NUS may be possible, but INSEAD and CBS would possibly require higher GMAT scores, especially as the GPA is low as well (btw, hope you are not simply scaling a percentage down to a 4-point scale to get a GPA). Do you have any international experience? Please provide details around that.

Hello there.

The information provided is definitely not sufficient to make a conclusive evaluation. (You could have strong background stories. You might have demonstrated stellar leadership at work/your community, etc.)

But assuming your profile is in line with the average Indian applicant with your background, I would expect CBS to be difficult. INSEAD will work only if you have substantial international experience. NUS could be a par school.

All the best,
Karthik

I am not demeaning the importance of your work experience but coming from Indian IT pool will surely be dismissive for your profile. NUS can be one reachable school from the list.
Schools like INSEAD and CBS looks more like international exposure from the candidates. Also with your GMAT and work experience, you should quantify your extra-curricular activities, your social leadership experience and share your roles and responsibilities at your workplace and any progression/promotion you may have received that you should highlight.
We strongly suggest you redo the list of schools to target, maybe a professional hand can help you to justify the right schools suit your current profile.

You can try our intelligent B school selector tool to guide you choosing the schools to target.
