Everything looks good RSgoosa. You must address the health issue in the optional essay and convince the admissions team that you will be fit to join ISB and that you have plans to keep yourself busy until April next year.

Clear career goals will be super important and best of luck with the GMAT


Dear Namita,
Thank you very much for your reply.
Yes Indeed. Health issue is a major factor in future career goal selection. So, I am thinking to use optional Essay for clarifying further in this regard.

Hi rsgooga

Please provide details of your work and your key responsibilities and achievements. From what you have provided, it seems to be something related to food technology, but we cannot be sure till you provide details.


Sorry for not clearing everything Upfront.

Work Experience:
3 months: trainee in Japanese Food Multinational
Location: Tokyo

1 year Production Executive (Actual Japanese term is quite difficult to translate in English), same Company, Location: Japan
Worked in Hardcore production field. Understood operations in detail. Implemented various Technological Improvements in the line.

1.5 years: Senior Operation Executive, Same Company: Location Japan
(please note that leading japanese people in their own country is next to impossible. I was the only foreigner who was directly supervising Japanese employees(had to work exceptionally hard to get good command over Japanese language)
Managed Production lines, Raw material confirmation and Internal audit
Technological support to overseas production units of the company (South East Asian region)
Project Lead and technology support for setting up new factory in Odisha, India


6 month, Founding Director, Chandigarh Based Food company
successfully opened two stores.
Managed team of 19 person.
Did all product development in-house (because my major was in Food tech.)
Developed and trademarked, two entirely new product categories.
Went for raising small amount of 200K dollars as seed fund from a CEO, whom I knew (Main reason for accepting funding was to bring that CEO as an Investor on board, because he had vast experience in successfully starting more than 5 companies)

In May had a small accident, was operated for spinal injury, On bed for two months, then recovery period, still recovering.

Will join a well known food start-up of India in Business Development role as soon as I recover (may be by mid October)
Main reason for not coming back to startup is because I am still not 100 percent recovered and doctor has advised not to work too hard in order to avoid any future complications. And sunning a startup from scratch requires too much of commitment.

Future Goal:
General management role in FMCG/ Food startup

And thank you very much in advance.

regards
Rohit

Hi Homer

This thread is for ISB-specific queries. For queries on US and UK schools, you might like to post here

On ISB:
- While your work experience and ECA are good, a GMAT score of 670-680 may be on the edge. Try and increase your GMAT a bit more, especially given that your college scores are not outstanding.
- The international experience you have had in terms of a foreign education (while growing up) will add to your application.
- The study gaps in between because of the illness can be explained. This was also a long time ago. This alone will not sink your application and can be overcome.
- At this point, focus on a strong GMAT score first and then take it from there.

Hope this helps. Feel free to come back with more queries as needed.

Hi sentamilselvan,

You check some of the boxes with regards to your GMAT score and number of years at work. The GPA is a blip, but the GMAT score should prevent some damage there.
I'd like to understand about your leadership at work, career progression and the impact you have created at work (achievements). The work experience quality will have a key role to play in the type of examples you give in the essays.

INSEAD seems like a stretch among the b-schools you have mentioned, at others your chances will depend upon a strong application.


Hi MBAdecoder,

Thanks for your response !! I'm gonna give GMAT again and try to push my score above 750! .Yeah!! INSEAD seems like a stretch since i don't have an international experience but i'd like to have it on my radar .
My current responsibilities :

1. Execution of civil work at site.
2. Estimation and billing of miscellaneous site works, Quality control (Basically i'm on client side)
3. Member of tender committee.
4. Handled projects worth of 150 crore (from execution to billing)
5. Currently 30 numbers of people report to me
6. Headed a project worth of 40 crore
7. Played an active role in company's Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) works such as distribution of study benches and desks to govt schools in our district.
8. Initiated works such as pollution control barricade in our site
9. Provided technical assistance in the construction of closed sea water intake channel of 2.7km length

(extracurricular )
1. Initiated various club activities such as gym,volleyball, in our township.
2. Teach arts and crafts to kindergarden

7. Play tin whistle and do black letter calligraphy, which i love the most.
8. High altitude trekking (goechala,Sikkim - 16200ft)
(Plus various responsibilities held during my college days)

Hope this'd help you in the evaluating my profile !! i'm yet to decide on post MBA goals and already on to it. Would like to have suggestions on my profile, any improvements to be done!! Basically to ramp up my chances. I'm working in a PSU and promotions are time bound; i can't project my career progression. My current designation is Deputy Executive Engineer / Civil.

Thanks in advance.

Hi sentamilselvan, your marks in undergrad seem to be woefully low; however thankfully this seems to be more often aberration in your otherwise sterling academic record all through your school. Moreover, your great GMAT score does compensate to a large extent. However, in the applications, you might want to clarify the reason why your undergrad marks are so low.

Apart from this, most other things, including the duration of your work experience and the nature of the work experience, seem to be quite decent. Make sure that your application demonstrates a clarity of purpose (on what you want to do in future) and what you wish to derive from the b-school (that would enable you to realize your aspirations).

Hi Chetan

Our thoughts on your questions:
- Given your profile overall, a GMAT score of 670 may not be sufficient. Would urge you to raise this to 700+. While your acads are good, the GMAT score needs to be a bit better too.
- Testing profiles can be seen to be very technical by ISB. A strong app with clear career goals and a case for an MBA will be important.
- Round 1 is possible, but only after you raise the GMAT score. If that means waiting till Round 2, then so be it.


Hope this helps. Feel free to come back with more queries as needed.

Hi

- Overall, your profile is well within the range of consideration for ISB. Your academics are good, your GMAT score is decent, and your ECA are quite strong. Your social service adds a leadership perspective as well.
- Your experience in the emerging e-commerce sector, and with known brands such as Rocket definitely add to your experience.
- The key weakness here will be explaining the number of job switches. However, the fact that you have spent 1.5 years+ in your last job is a slight positive on that side and will help.
- Overall, given your work and the expertise you will bring, you should be a good candidate for ISB.

Hope this helps. Feel free to come back with more queries as needed.

Hi Suhas,

Thanks for sharing your profile information. Please find below my comments :

Overall Profile : On paper seems diverse and something that can add value to the ISB class. However, a lot depends on how and what do you portray in terms of learnings from being involved in Research and how has it shaped who you are today.

Academics : Competitive, Additional Masters Degree from a Reputed University helps. Information about your field of research and thesis results will help in a much refined evaluation.

Work Experience :
Volume - Very Competitive
Quality - Depends on your contribution in the two roles and impact on the respective organizations.

Extracurricular :
You need to show what motivates you to get involved in voluntary work and what is its impact on your personality.

In summary, I feel that you have a very competitive profile, and with a GMAT score of 680 plus you can submit a compelling application.

Hope this helps.

I am an ISB alum, CO14 and have been working as an admission consultant for the last 2 years assisting clients in their admission journeys. So please feel free to reach out to me at +91-9701215544/Skype : arijit_biswas89 if and when needed.

Cheers and the ATB for GMAT

Hi,

I am interested in applying for ISB this year.

Requesting a profile evaluation:

Gender/Nationality : Female/Indian
10th Percentage: 91.2%
12th Percentage: 86.6%
Graduation: B.Tech - 6.5/10 CGPA

GMAT 1st Attempt: 610 (Q47, V28, IR3, AWA5)
GMAT 2nd Attempt: 650 (Q46, V34, IR3, AWA5)

Work Exp: 7 years in IT.
-----------
worked as Senior Software Engineer/Consultant in two reputed IT MNCs.
Have worked in 6 projects so far in Finance/Telecom/Retail/Healthcare Domain.

Since I have worked majorly for Finance Clients, I am more inclined towards Finance.

Extra Curricular Activities:
------------------------------
Active participant in Cultural Activities in School. Active member of Arts committee of College Magazine.
No NGO or CSR experience.

I want to give another attempt to GMAT so as to increase my score to more than 680 atleast to be in the competitive pool.
However, I have only a month to do so as I want to apply in R1 this year, to avail for Scholarships.

Request feedback on my profile.

Thanks.


Hi Neha,

I strongly suggest you retake GMAT. Very few people get in with scores around 650 and you have to have something great about you to be in that category. Your work description is not enough but going by what you have written I think it will be a rough ride with this GMAT score

You can safely apply in R2. Scholarships are given to candidates who demonstrate excellence in several fields. I am not aware of deserving R2 applicants not getting them- my own applicants have got scholarships in R2.

Lastly, you need to gain clarity over your career goals. What you have mentioned here is highly generic and will not help you make the cut.

Hi Pratp,

Your work exp shows lots of impact. Is all ten years' experience in Canada? This could be a differentiating factor, provided you are able to demonstrate learnings which you can translate to other environments. Also explain the reasons for moving to India for an MBA
Quickly take the GMAT and you'll be set to apply.
