There's not a lot of info to go on here; much of a profile review by us or by a program such as ISB will come from more detail of your work and your resume and accomplishments... examples of leadership are key for example, especially for an EMBA. Management experience is a plus and teamwork/collaboration skills. Feel free to do a resume submission for a more detailed discuss if interested, at www.mbamission.com/consult. I'm not sure I'm following your meaning of 'not on company roll' fyi.

So it sounds like you have solid quantitative and analytical skills. The more you can demonstrate the teamwork and interpersonal skills, along with leadership, the better your chances would be. GMAT is ok but if you feel you could improve, you could consider giving it another try as there's no real down side to doing so. Be sure you focus a lot on how your post-MBA goals have driven your decision to apply, and to this school, and at this point in your career. Show a strong knowledge of the program and passion for it. It may be a bit of a reach but worth a shot.

Please review my profile for the ISB 2020 batch admissions:

X- 86%
XII- 77%
B.Tech (Civil)- 7.63 CGPA from a top 5 National Institute of Technology

Workex- 31 months till date (Will be around 40 months when I am planning to apply) in a 'Special Purpose Vehicle' of the Government of India and State Government. I have worked in the tendering section of a couple of public transportation projects (Managed by the same company) worth US$ 3 Billion (INR 20,000 Cr.) in total. My role includes preparation of tender document from techno-commercial-legal point of view, co-ordination with media houses for wide publicity of invitation of bids, co-ordination with international funding agencies such as EIB, AFD, World Bank, etc. for their NOC to the invitation of bids, represent the government client in the Pre-Bid meetings, replying to individual queries, evaluation of bids received and co-ordination with all the stakeholders till final award of work. I was personally involved in all these activities for 5-6 tenders of US$ 60 Million (INR 400 Cr.) each apart from a few dozen smaller tenders. I was also entrusted with managing a Supreme Court case on behalf of my company in a US$ 65 Million (INR 500 Cr.) litigation where we were represented by the Ex-Finance Minister of the country (As an attorney) which we eventually won. I also got a couple of back to back promotions in the organization and working at managerial position right now.

Extra Curriculars-
Wrote fictional stories on a famous website. One of these stories was within the top 3 of the genre for a long time.
Played guitar in a couple of events.
Participated in street play event in college and won second prize.
Organised a business event in college.

Co curriculars-
Nothing too stellar during college, just won a couple of district level math and science competitions/scholarships during my school days.

I am aiming for my MBA in Strategy and Leadership from ISB as well as industry specialization in Infrastructure. Although my work-ex provided me extraordinary learning opportunities and exposure, I have always observed that the real brain behind the project was the consultants we engaged for the management of these project. The client was merely an enabler and decision maker (Which is taken by the highest in echelons only). A masters degree and specialization has immense value in my field of work and based on my previous work experience, I feel that management education will augment my profile better in the desired direction than a technical or law based masters program. Hence, I feel that my strategic acumen and skills will grow much faster in a consultancy job which I aim to grab after a formal management education.

I am planning to appear for GMAT this summer and aiming for a 700+ at the least. How should I develop my profile to maximize my chances of an admit?

Hi there
Please let me know what you think of my chances at ISB. I am a non-engineering candidate with a unique profile.

Age: 28
GMAT: 690 (1st Attempt) Q44 V40 IR 7; Planning second attempt but can't do much with it this year since admissions have closed.

I have led the training and recruitment function for one of the biggest events and exhibition centres in the MENA region. Most recently, I was part of the team that won the bid for hospitality at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

Prior to that, I have been a part of scholarship hospitality training programs that pick only ~60 students across India. I have also had a short stint leading a training assignment within the Indian Healthcare sector.

Positions held: Senior Manager, Training; Talent Manager; Training Manager

10th: 89%
12th: 90%
B.Tech in Mechatronics at SRM University: 8.16/10 (81.6%)
Below is my short SOP for other college. Kindly evaluate my profile. Are there any chances for ISB call?
I need to take my GMAT yet. What score is ideal for me.

"The best of our capabilities and strengths are tested and improved when we willingly take on challenges. Since my childhood I have done exactly that, finding a solution to every problem that I am faced with thus creating a confidence to take charge of my destiny. I have been intrigued by the intricacies involved in everyday businesses while I worked for Aaruush, the Tech Fest at SRM University. As part of my responsibilities, I visited Andhra Pradesh campaigning for our college fest and brought a record 250 plus registrations which has since become the benchmark. Being a strong academic performer helped in securing employment in the first placement session itself while in my final year of graduation.
While working for Cognizant Technology Solutions, I quickly and successfully grasped the work pattern and the team structure that exists at MNC’s. My skills where recognized when my onsite manager put me in charge to develop a new method of software testing using SOAP UI tool. Later I joined our family business where my prime responsibilities included developing strategic project goals, creating team structure and assigning tasks. It enlightened me about employee psychology, team management, decision making and handling critical situations.
Being a person who has always appreciated aesthetic perfection with simplicity at work, web development is a field that I have incorporated that in. Apart from my family business, I developed a website "mpag.in" and later started a web development company named "Bright Look", taking on small-scale web development projects. This was aided by my knowledge on coding and work experience gained at CTS and the confidence of running the family business.
My journey thus far has made me realize, to take up higher management roles and to create a niche in current competitive market scenario, one must have a strong insight into managerial skills. With its high quality mentoring and excellent exposure towards the competitive business world, I strongly believe that a premier institute like --------- at this point in my career would help me understand the nuances of business and management."

Hello Tarun

First of all congratulation on a stellar academic record.
ISB & IIMs do value academic records a lot.

On the question on GMAT. One simple rule. Get the best GMAT score you can get. Don't hesitate to appear twice or even trice if not satisfied with the score.
I believe 720+ will be competitive. But remember we are in India. Even 740 is not too uncommon here. So get your best score

Hello Kundal

You have great profile with good grades
Assuming you are an Indian candidate I would strongly suggest to score 700+ in the GMAT
GMAT is not the only criteria, but we Indians score very high in GMAT.

So its always advisable if you dont have an extra ordinary profile try to get a higher GMAT.
I think you are a kind of profile all B-schools like to have. Just give them one more reason & score 700+.

Regards
Alok

Hi kundalmahanta,

Thanks for writing.

You definitely have a sound profile, complete with leadership experience, exposure handling international clients, and achievements to show at work. These elements, when combined, will certainly help you in building a strong case for ISB.

Having said the above, you will need to keep a few things in mind:
- Ensure that the goals you are talking about are in strong sync with your existing work experience and qualifications.
- Attempt to thread your story in a way that it highlights your strengths and skill-set and how you will contribute to the ISB experience.
- Aim for a GMAT score upwards of 710 as you are an Indian candidate and the expectations are always higher. 710 is only around the average score for ISB, and needless to say, the higher the score the better it will be :) The good part is that you have time at hand and can always prepare for the test :)

We would like to take this opportunity to offer you a free profile evaluation. Should you feel the need for the same, please do get in touch with us :)

Thank you.

All the best!

Hello sidshocker

We are a bit late in responding to you but we hope this finds you in time :)

Thanks for sharing your profile details.

While the extent of your work experience is not on the higher side, you seem to have played a crucial role at MMT and won a number of Awards as well :) Besides, the extra curricular engagement will also help showcase you as an all-around individual. A lot, therefore, depends on how well you portray your story i.e. how well you are able to portray the work you have done, the skills you have garnered, and how you intend to utilize all of this to contribute to the overall ethos at ISB. Of course, another thing, just as important, is your career aspiration. Remember that you short-term and long-term goals must showcase a strong sync with your existing work experience and must flow seamlessly.

Adding to the above, you must equally focus on getting a GMAT score upwards of 710/720. The higher the better :) You do have time and you can always put your best foot forward.

Should you feel the need to have a detailed conversation about your profile, please feel free to contact us :)

All the best!

You do have a very competitive profile, complete with a good GMAT score, a fine academic record, and extensive work experience.

Hi @Samreen929,

Apologies for the delay in responding to you but we hope this will be of help to you.

Your strong academic record, international exposure at the professional level, and adept leadership skills throughout are all plus points for sure :) If you are able to tie all these strengths up in your essays, together with putting forth a logical and clear set of career goals, you will definitely stand a good chance.

The concern area, of course, is the GMAT and we strongly recommend that you aim for a score upwards of 700 (needless to say, higher the better:)) 680 will be a bit under the average at ISB. Besides, considering your IT background, the GMAT expectation from you will be a bit on the higher side :)

The good part is that you have some time before the next round. We suggest that you focus on GMAT for now :)

We would like to take this opportunity to offer you a free profile evaluation. Should you feel the need for the same, please do get in touch with us :)

Thank you!

All the best!
