Hello,
In my view based upon the short info here, I would say you have the following strengths:
-variety of extracurricular activities, looks like both past & present (note that this can make more impact if you have some strong stories of leadership and commitment and impact within any of them)
-respectable work experience
-analytical/quant skills
-CFA

Then the following weaknesses:
-undergrad grades

And the following unknowns:
-GMAT!!!
-specific work related achievements
-any other life stories that could be relevant
-any international exposure
-career goals
-recommendations, essays, interview which all make an impact

While the GMAT won't likely 'get you in', it could easily hold you back based upon how competitive the applicant pool is so don't underestimate its importance and the value of thorough preparation. Overall your decision at ISB will likely come down to the 'unknown' list above, many of which are still within your control in terms of how you present yourself and your profile. Feel free to check in with us for a more in-depth resume review and consultation if desired either now or after GMAT, at www.mbamission.com/consult. Good luck in the process!

Hi adityan92,

Thanks for writing in :)

First things first, you need to work towards a GMAT score upwards of 700. We strongly recommend that you focus on getting a good score in the attempt that you have planned. Once this is done, you need to focus on creating an application, comprising essays that are strongly representative of your achievements at work, the skills you have garnered, and how you will use your expertise to contribute to the ISB class :)

Should you need to discuss this in detail, please do reach out to us :)

All the best!

Hi Dhruv, your profile looks quite strong. All MBA programs prefer diversity in the students enrolled. So the fact that you do not belong to engineering background will work in your favor.
ISB requires a minimum of 2 years work experience, so that should be fine in your case. As your acad scores are not quite strong, so you need to have a good GMAT score.
I hope a score of 680 for your profile will be good enough to get interview call.

All the best.

Regards,
Ankit Kaushik

Hi dhruv kacker,

The good part is that you have a very differentiated work experience and business schools love that :) Having said this, a lot will depend on your GMAT score (particularly to compensate for your grades during BDS) and you must aim upwards of 700. Further, very crucial, of course, will be the projection of your career goals. Not only will you need to show a seamless sync among your existing experience, short-term aspirations, and long-term goals but also appropriately bring out the need for an MBA.

If you are able to take care of the above-mentioned points, you will have a strong chance at ISB! :)

Hope this helps. All the best! :)

I intend to apply in R2 for the MBA class of 2019 (2018 intake). Would appreciate an evaluation of my profile.

WE : Will complete 5 years 8 months by the time I start school (April 2018)

Gender: Male
Nationality: Indian
GMAT: 730 (Q50, V39, IR 6)

International exposure: Have never had the opportunity to work abroad, but have worked in cross functional teams throughout.

Education: Post Graduate Diplioma in Banking (CGPA 8/10)
Bachelor of Technology: (CGPA 6.1/10)

Professional Experience:
> 3 years at ICICI Bank (India's leading Private sector bank) as a Corporate Credit Risk Analyst. Here I was involved in various processes over the 3 years. (Risk monitoring, Governance, QA, Regulatory, Reporting to Senior Management etc)
> 2 years at Barclays India. Areas of work include Compliance, Risk Assessment, and Project Management

Both the roles above involved liaising with cross functional teams in London, Singapore, Canada, U.S., Bahrain etc.

Extra- Curricular:
Have been involved in CSR(Corporate social responsibility) activities. Active participant in educating underpriviliged kids (among other activities) at various company-empanelled NGOs. Have also been involved in local social work organised within the residential community.

Active participant in sports throughout my school years. University captain of the football team along with being chief sports coordinator.

My biggest fear is that my overall academic record is rather weak and I would like to know what I could do to overshadow this. Is the steady improvement after graduation enough? Does the 730 in GMAT help? I have also recently completed an Executive Education course from Judge Business School, Cambridge - sponsored by my company.

Would love to hear some views. Thanks in advance.

Hi Harshet,

Thanks for your query.

First things first - you definitely have a strong GMAT score, substantial work experience (with reputed companies), and decent if not exceptional extra-curricular engagement(all very important elements). Of course, it would have been nice to know what all you have achieved throughout your professional career (in terms of awards, as well as leadership/managerial experience). Furthermore, yes, your GPA is on the lower side. However, your GMAT should be able to cover up on the same.

Having said the above, it is important that you now give it your everything in preparing a stellar application that focuses on your achievements, on the elements that make you an ideal fit for ISB, and, most importantly, focus on showcasing a very logical correlation between your existing professional experience and your future goals. If you are able to take care of this, you will have a very strong chance at ISB.

Should you need to discuss your case in greater detail, do get in touch with us.

Hope this helps.

All the best! :)

Hello Eeshangeel,

You indeed have a very strong academic background and significant achievements to showcase during your time at Hyundai.

It is great that you are aiming for 730+ as a score around this mark will immensely strengthen your case. Hence, while your GMAT prep should be the top priority you could also look at involving yourself in certain CSR/social-sector activities or simply search the vicinity for social clubs (such as Toastmasters) and align with the same. On the professional front, try taking up leadership roles at work so as to have enough talking points in terms of achievements, people-oriented roles, and cross-cultural exposure :)

With the above taken care of, focus on creating an application that amply reflects your potential for ISB and projects a logical sync among your existing experience, short-term goals, and long-term aspirations.

Hope this helps.

All the best! :)

Hi there,
Is this for the PGP early entry? Impact is quite important in terms of admissions to that program, and your involvement in activities, leadership, and impact demonstrated sounds like it would suit the program, and your GMAT looks solid as well. It will be important to execute your application well and make a good case for the fact that you know why and how the program will help you in your next career steps, and what you'll contribute to the program as well, but looks like you have a good start... may just need to prioritize what elements of your life and involvement thus far to focus on in your apps, as quality is more important than quantity.

What should be a good score in GMAT and whether Public Sector Banks profile stand chance as I do not have corporate background...

Why MBA? - I have been working in credit department for a long time and have processed many kinds of loans - In public sector, we are more like generalists...and not particularly specialist in a single type of work and though I worked in credit department but we can easily handle day to day branch operations/deposits/locker/clearing/customer complaints/NPA recovery/Suit Filing at DRT/Civil Suits and any other miscellaneous dept. as and when need arise. MBA will help me to make a career shift and I can use this immense work experience to add to my knowledge.

Awards -
Received Appreciation Letter as Branch Head for performing Best in Retail loans in State - 02 times
Received Appreciation Certificate - Black Belt - Overall Performer
Received Internal "Hindi" Implementation Award - Second prize in Urban Branch Category all over India
Received Appreciation Letter for successfully Implementing "Demonetization" with Zero Customer Complaints as Branch head
Received Appreciation Certificate for performing excellent in NPA recovery Campaign.

I have not seen any of my colleagues who wants to pursue MBA full time because a Public Sector Bank provides excellent Job Security and their long term plan is to continue with the present Bank. Though I think differently, Bank has provided me with immense exposure to almost so many industries (MSME, Mid corporate, Large corporate), government machinery (functioning), Police, Courts, etc and I want to use this knowledge for better understanding of businesses through Formal Education.

International Experience - NIL (cant do anything about it as the opportunity is very less).
Voluntary Social Work - Done with the help of Bank (mostly in the area where Branch is located) - also related with Government Sponsored Program's implementation, Conducting Financial Literacy Camps.


Target School - ISB, IIMA.

Please provide your suggestions and comments.

Hi Dhruv,

Thanks for writing in. You have a great profile as a doctor. I am a little intrigued about your social service initiative in breast cancer when you are a dental surgeon. Do elaborate on that.

So while your profile is great, I'd like to understand what is your need to do an MBA? Don't really see a connection with what you have done in the past and how an MBA could help. So, will need your inputs here to put it all together. Please mention your future career goals and why does an MBA make sense.

I intend to apply in R2 for the MBA class of 2019 (2018 intake). Would appreciate an evaluation of my profile.

WE : Will complete 5 years 8 months by the time I start school (April 2018)

Gender: Male
Nationality: Indian
GMAT: 730 (Q50, V39, IR 6)

International exposure: Have never had the opportunity to work abroad, but have worked in cross functional teams throughout.

Education: Post Graduate Diplioma in Banking (CGPA 8/10)
Bachelor of Technology: (CGPA 6.1/10)

Professional Experience:
> 3 years at ICICI Bank (India's leading Private sector bank) as a Corporate Credit Risk Analyst. Here I was involved in various processes over the 3 years. (Risk monitoring, Governance, QA, Regulatory, Reporting to Senior Management etc)
> 2 years at Barclays India. Areas of work include Compliance, Risk Assessment, and Project Management

Both the roles above involved liaising with cross functional teams in London, Singapore, Canada, U.S., Bahrain etc.

Extra- Curricular:
Have been involved in CSR(Corporate social responsibility) activities. Active participant in educating underpriviliged kids (among other activities) at various company-empanelled NGOs. Have also been involved in local social work organised within the residential community.

Active participant in sports throughout my school years. University captain of the football team along with being chief sports coordinator.

My biggest fear is that my overall academic record is rather weak and I would like to know what I could do to overshadow this. Is the steady improvement after graduation enough? Does the 730 in GMAT help? I have also recently completed an Executive Education course from Judge Business School, Cambridge - sponsored by my company.

Would love to hear some views. Thanks in advance.


Well, a 6.1 is a weak CGPA. The challenge this year is they have no optional essay to explain weak points in the resume (and they removed the essay because applicants make too many excuses :-D )

You can't change your GPA now, so you will have to work around it. My suggestion is to do the following:
1. present a strong resume (most ISB applicants don't do that). Show your impact in numbers.
2. Show analytical skills and high intellect. Ask your recommender to mention these with solid examples
3. show achievements and career progress through the other two essays. Needless to say, career goals have to be clear.

Beyond that, the high GMAT will help to establish your intellectual capability.

Hello there,

You are clearly passionate about automobiles and that's a good start!
In terms of profile building, continue doing the good work you are currently doing. Promotions and work related achievements definitely help, so work towards those.

My other two suggestions will help you should your plans change by next year and you start thinking of applying to international b-schools :
1. Gain some international work experience. I guess it would not be so difficult at Hyundai.
2. get involved outside work. Social service is a good way to do this, however, gain some depth in experience. Don't go after too many activities, but do one well.

Please provide Profile Evaluation- ISB (for 2019-2020 Batch) - I know its early, but have to plan

I presently work in a Public Sector Bank as Senior Manager
Total Work Experience - 08 years (in Bank) and 04 Months (in IT - Cognizant as Programmer Analyst Trainee)

In Bank, Joined in December 2009 as Assistant Manager and then got first Promotion to Manager in September 2013, second promotion to Senior Manager in July 2017.

As Assistant Manager I have worked in Credit Dept. handled loans of all kinds Retail, MSME etc.
As Manager, I headed 03 Branches - 01 Urban,01 Rural and one Metro Branch as Branch Manager.
Presently, as Senior Manager I am now posted in a Metro Branch as Second Line Manager presently assisting Assistant General Manager in all the dept (operations, advances, deposits).

I have worked in 07 different cities and four different states in almost all parts of country during this tenure.

Nitin,

I like the fact that you are thinking beyond job security to do something you like! With everything else being good in your profile, GMAT is the only missing link now. I am wondering why you are not planning to apply this year (for 2018 cycle). You already have substantial work experience, in fact on the higher side of the ISB class. Another extra year will only make the adcom wonder why you waited this long (unless you are doing something significant in the coming year).

I'd say, give a push to your GMAT prep and go for the kill now.

Hi GAurav,

I assume you are also applying to ISB, thats why you have shared your profile here. Hence I am responding to your post both for ISB and INSEAD.

First ISB: At this moment, I don't see any constraints. Go ahead and apply. Your GMAT could be better. If you can take it in the next one month, with an aim to score 730+, then go ahead and take it.

Your experience, with a mix of operations and consulting is good. What do you wish to do after the MBA? You should be explaining what you currently lack and how MBA will help you fill that gap.

Regarding INSEAD, you don't have the kind of international experience they seek in applicants. I'd say, you gain some more work exp, probably work with some international clients and then apply to INSEAD. A better GMAT score will help here as well.
