Can you please evaluate my profile for ISB?

Age: 28 ( Indian male)
• Education: Master of Science in Engineering (Electronics) from a German university
• Professional experience : 4+ years in a technical role at Intel
• Current Location: Germany
• International experience: 7+ years (Master’s in Germany + work exp. Post Master’s)
• Citizenship: Indian
• GMAT: scheduled on October 1st, current scores around 650, trying to increase it to ~700

Achievements:
• Received a promotion within 16 months of work experience with an 'Outstanding' performance review
• Received multiple recognition awards at work for problem solving, supporting colleagues, product development etc.
• Received scholarship during Master's from DAAD (German govt.) for academics and extra-curricular activities
• Experienced in working with teams across multiple sites in US, Asia and Europe on a daily basis
• Technical product development experience from concept to production on some of the most advanced technologies in the industry

Languages: B1 certified German speaker ( can and do speak German in a professional environment), English (fluent) and three Indian regional languages

Why MBA and why Indian schools?
• I wish to understand the bigger picture in product development and therefore, want to learn about product management and strategy
• I want to return to India and therefore, targeting ISB
• If I return to India with current skill set, I will continue to work for technical roles and will not be able to understand the bigger picture. Therefore, I would like to pursue an MBA
• Not quite keen on US business schools due to high tuition fees and the amount of time that needs to be spent abroad to recover the fees
• I don’t think there will be a big salary difference between working with current skill set for Indian semiconductor companies and post ISB, thus salary increase is not the reason behind an MBA.

Post MBA goals
• I would like to be closely involved with technology companies in product management roles
• Ideally, would like to go back to semiconductor industry since I already have my Master’s degree and experience but there are not many MBAs in this industry. I am open to expanding my horizons into other industries
• Would like to capitalize on my German professional experience and preferably want to work for German companies based in India

Questions:
• What are my chances at ISB and is ISB a good fit for my profile? Potentially looking to apply to IIMA and IIMB's executive MBA programs too
• What is a reasonable GMAT score for this profile? (considering I am around 650 as of now, with 20 days left for the test)


If you are ready to make a transition into other industries, ISB should be a good fit for you considering the fact that you want to get into Product Management. Your overall profile looks great, given that you have 7 years of international exposure and the brand name of Intel further helps your cause. There is no ideal score for any profile. You should definitely look to touch the 700 mark, if possible, although you should apply even with a score of 650.
You should do a bit more research on your goals and try to figure out your target industries, the German companies and your potential back up plan. Try to be as precise as possible as far as the goals are concerned. Though your job was a technical one, try to find out the ways you demonstrated leadership traits. Also, find out some evidences of leadership outside work.

Since you are applying to a bschool, it is assumed that you are a good software developer.It is important to show some traits of leadership and team skills from your job.
Given that, you should definitely apply this year. However, its difficult to suggest something concrete without knowing your post MBA goals and the final GMAT score. In your essays and resumes, do not show involvements with lots of activities. Instead just focus on a couple of them and clearly show the significant impact you had.
Clarity over career goals is highly important and goals should be something which has atleast few transferable skills from your current job.

Dont worry about your undergrad GPA now. Instead focus on scoring as high as possible on GMAT. You can even take up some alternate courses especially those which are graded.

Hi, I am a Chartered Accountant. I cleared my CA exam in May 2014 with All India Rank 48. I have played Cricket, Football and Table tennis at school, college and corporate level. My academic scores are: -
SSC (10th) - 86%
HSC (12th) - 78%
TY BCOM - 90%
I have been working with BMR & Associates LLP (tax consulting firm) for 3 years and have a good exposure in handling International clients.
I am also doing some volunteering work for a NGO which teaches football to underprivileged kids.

What are my chances to get into ISB if i am successful in getting a 700 on my GMAT?


Its difficult to predict your chances without spending at-least 30 minutes reading your application. You have a good profile.You should focus on boosting your GMAT and getting more clarity on your post MBA goals.

Abhishek,

Things look good as far as your stats are concerned. what will really matter is the quality of your application- your achievements and impact at work, career progression, clarity in career goals and real need for an MBA. Its tough competition and there are a bunch of people who apply with your background.

Reach out if your need help with your application

Hi Anagh,

A lawyer applying at ISB definitely adds to the diversity mix- so you get some big brownie points there. Be sure about your career goals- clarity on future goals will be crucial during the application and more during the interview.

How is the F&B business doing? we have been coming across an increasing number of applicants with full-time ventures and side ventures. While it's still of interest, there should be something solid to talk about.

All the best with GMAT

3 years of work experience is slightly on the lower side. You might have to show some traits of leadership both inside and outside your workplace. Its difficult to comment on your chances without knowing your Post MBA goals.

Thanks.


This thread is only for ISB profile evaluations. So we cannot provide other college recommendations.
Your age, post MBA goals, reputation of your firm, and GMAT score are missing.

Any recommendations would be appreciated.


You are good from acads point of view especially after the 720 plus GMAT.

Goals: Make sure you find the transferable skills from your current job into IT Consulting. Do more research about the firms you want to get in Post MBA.

Others: Do not show too much of extra curricular. Show great impact in only one or two of them rather than showing mere participation in all of the activities. Do not give much emphasis to those technical certifications in your CV.

what work are you doing? what is your career progress? your work related achievements?
Is your investor experience some part-time assignment? What is the value of this work? Have you come up with recommendations that have led to some achievement?

ISB round 1 possibility- yes, why not!
LOR - ISB takes only one LOR, so I can't be too sure if the angel investor should be the right person to give it to you or someone else from your OEM job. I'll need more details to understand this. Also, it depends on what your career goals are. You would try to use that recommender who can swear by the qualities required in your post-MBA career.

Hi abhishek6390,

A well-balanced profile. Infrastructure as an industry and the international experience add value. A score of 710 is good for your profile too. What will help you further is well-articulated essays that show examples of leadership potential and characteristics that set you apart from others in your industry. Also, what are your goals? Make sure that your goals are well-mapped to what you have done so far and you are able to demonstrate a clear vision and career path. Hope this helps.
