Dear Experts,

I wish to apply for a full time MBA degree in HEC Paris, INSEAD and LBS. Please evaluate my profile and advice me on the areas that need improvement.

Nationality : Indian
Age : 26
Male
GMAT : 660(Q40,V41)

Education : BE(Hons.) in Electronics and Instrumentation from Birla Institute of Technology and Science, Pilani, Dubai Campus
GPA: 3.4
During undergrad, I interned at two multinational firms in Dubai and worked on a project on improving in-flight damage analysis of air-crafts with an R&D institute in Germany.

Work Experience: 5+ years
After graduating in 2012, I have been working in the offshore oil and gas drilling industry. I joined a multinational offshore drilling company as a trainee Electronic Technician and currently I am the youngest Electronic Tech. in my company. My jobs include maintenance, servicing and troubleshooting various equipment on-board the offshore vessels. The job demands rigorous planning and accurate analysis of the problems in order to solve them within the shortest period of time to cut down losses by avoiding downtime.
Apart from the technical jobs, my responsibilities include updating inventory of the equipment and spares, managing a team of 4, ordering equipment and spares, calculating yearly budgets, cutting down operational costs, communicating with the client and understanding there requirements, enhancing the safety standards of the rig and making sure that my team stays stress free and motivated. In the last five years I have won safety awards and man of the month award for up-keeping the safety standards of the rigs and implementing innovative techniques to improve ease and safety of operations.
My work has taken me to various offshore drilling vessels in Iran and India.

Apart from work I love to travel. I have traveled to countries in Europe, South East Asia and Middle East. I have been trained in Indian classical music (vocal and instrumental) and have won awards in singing, speaking and acting competitions in school and undergrad. I have been a part of the basketball and boxing teams during my undergrad and was also the feather-weight boxing champion.

In 2012 I opened an NGO, which focuses on teaching music to the underprivileged citizens. I have also been a part of a project concerned with studying the effects of classical music on prisoners with life sentences.

Currently, apart from my offshore job, I am involved in a start-up in the food industry. This is my second start-up after a failed one.

Thank you

Dkingdom

Hi there - thanks for writing. What is your post-MBA goal and desired geography?

I can say that INSEAD and LBS are more competitive than HEC - for these two programs in particular, a 700+ would really help your chances (and given that you're from a heavily represented applicant pool, the higher the better). Once I know about your goals I can advise a bit more. Thanks!

Hello mbaMissionNishaT ,

Thank you for the information.
As you already know that I am working in the core fossil fuel energy sector, I wish to switch to the clean energy sector.
After MBA I wish to join a firm that focuses on the development and application of clean energy. I wish to join such a firm as a business development consultant, so that I can device better and cheaper strategies to bring clean energy to the backward areas of the community.
After MBA I wish to settle down in Europe.

I hope I have answered your questions.
Please let me know if more information is needed from my end.

Regards
Dkingdom
