Hello!!

Please help evaluate my profile for R1 admissions, starting this year, for some 1yr programs I have shortlisted in-line with my GMAT score.

Background and nationality: Indian, 32yrs
Undergrad Information: Computer Engineer - University of Mumbai| Total Aggregate – 59%
GMAT: 750 (Q49 V44 AWA5 IR6)

Target Schools: (in order of preference)
Cambridge Judge Business School
Oxford Said Business School
IIM – Ahmedabad
ISB – Hyderabad

Work experience and leadership:
Total Work Experience: 10.5yrs (Indian IT MNC)| 3 promotions & no job switches.
Work Function: IT Consulting - Product Delivery & Implementation/ Change Management
Domain: Retail/Corporate Banking, Wealth Management Systems, Online delivery channels
International Experience: ~4+ yrs (Africa & Singapore)

Key CV elements:
Led teams of 7-10 members and drove implementations with yearly consolidated revenues of over $1M for a tier-1 banking institution in South East Asia.
Implemented various product enhancements in record short sprints and enabled 30% savings in delivery timelines under org initiatives for SEA market.
Formulated and managed change across end users with a holistic exposure to existing business processes in the banking domain, for various South East Asian emerging markets.
Designed data migration strategy, mapped existing business processes, defined project milestones and coordinated with business teams to manage core-banking platform transformation projects at 5 Nigerian banking institutions.
Led cross-cultural project teams in Nigeria, with 7-10 Indian+Nigerian members, driving product implementations of key banking modules. Have a very good understanding of emerging market needs and limitations in technology adoption.

Community and Extra Curriculars:
Very keen debater and quizzer throughout my academic and professional tracks. Have represented my institutions over the years in multiple quiz & debate competitions at various levels.
Winner of Inter School Debate competition in Delhi-NCR, organised by Rajiv Gandhi Foundation of India.
Won Mumbai qualifier and represented the city at Inter-College Canara Bank Centenary Quiz in Bangalore.

Published short stories and light verses in school newsletters and magazines. Being an avid debater and quizzer, I am very comfortable with public speaking and verbal communication, leading to effective leadership abilities. I am an Equity and Capital market enthusiast and love watching sports & documentaries.

Post MBA goals:
With 10+ yrs of IT consulting and product delivery experience, I am looking to target senior positions at product management/ownership roles, continuing in the technology space to leverage my business & life experiences to the fullest. I want to develop holistic business management acumen with Strategy as my concentration, so that I can learn the advanced principles of product management, promotion & pricing, marketing strategies and enhanced post-sales revenues. I am sure that a 1yr b-school program would expose me to new ideas & though-trains, and give me further clarity on the road to my goals.

I see myself transitioning into senior leadership roles with challenging responsibilities in the long-term, leading not just teams and product offerings, but organizational strategy & roadmap as well.



Thanks for your time!
Cheers :-)

Hi there,
I did already reply on the Judge thread (https://gmatclub.com/forum/judge-profil ... l#p2026569), but would just add that it won't be easy given the competitive nature of applicants with similarities to yourself, but applying R1, really leaning on the interesting international and cross-cultural experiences, and showing strong connection with each school will all help and perhaps you'll have a shot at one of the programs on your list. Keep us posted if we can help further!

Are 1 year programs only beneficial for people with avg experience of 8-9 years. What if I would not want to spend too much in a 2 year program and would also wish to start my management career early? Is this is logical scenario. I have currently 5.5 years of exp.

Hi there-- 1 year programs can be beneficial for a variety of applicants, and no are not limited/solely best for those with 8-9 years of experience. The average is generally 5-6 years of experience. Note: I personally completed a 1-year program in Cambridge after just 3 years of experience! There are pros/cons to either structure of program, and a 1 year program is sometimes more intense, and allows room for slightly fewer electives overall, but it can be a good option to consider. If you are referring to a US one-year program or an option where the school offers BOTH a 1 year and a 2 year, then there may be different things the program wants to see when you opt for the one-year option so just review all the requirements and preferences as stated by each program. Hope that helps!
