Hi arvind8689
- With a PhD and a solid resume, ISB would find you a very attractive candidate. Even if you get a GMAT of 650, you should give your app a shot. Of course, you may get a higher score, which only enhances your chances further.
- ISB does have another program in Healthcare as well (AMP). So does IIM Bangalore. Do have a look there too.

Hi tsaha2500
You should have a decent chance at the YLP process with that profile. The process for this year is now already under way; in case you have not cleared stage 1 yet, you will need to apply in Round 1 (deadline in last week of March) next year. You would also need to look more closely at your goal, as from what you have described, there is no evidence of social work in your education or internships (maybe you missed mentioning the details here if you do have this exposure).

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

HI Arvind,

Having worked with PhDs applying for MBA, I know its crucial to explain why you want an MBA after the PhD. Come up with solid reasons for that. Draw a connect between the problems that you wish to solve that you are unable to right now, and the role that you will take up in future to solve these. Explain why this will require a study of management concepts, in addition to the PhD.

Hope that helps.

Hello GyanOne,

Thank you for your quick feedback! Regarding goals, I am looking to accelerate my career growth and to have an opportunity to work beyond oil and gas sector.


Sure Vivek360. You would need to put more details and thought in those goals - by themselves, they are not quite there yet. Maybe you just mentioned them in brief for our understanding, so that's fine.

Overall, your education, work, experience (including foreign exposure), and extra-curriculars are quite strong. Start working on your applications. Target R1 for sure.

Happy to have a 10-minute chat on your profile if you so wish. Can contact us directly through the coordinates in the signature below.

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

Hi Bharathi,

if you are not working for the past two years, and want to use the MBA as a way to get back into the work force, I'd say you go ahead and apply. I hope you have a valid reason for the two year break (there will be place to talk about it in the application form).

With 7 years of work experience behind you- you should have enough material to use to impress the adcom. To top that you also have substantial international experience. You can leverage this in ISB's essay on contribution (obviously, insights should be good).

Aim for a 700 plus GMAT score - given that you are on break, I am sure the adcom would expect it. Also, just as a word of caution, never use GMAT as a reason for the break.

We can talk more about this. Should you be interested, reach out through the contacts mentioned below.

Hi baru

Possibly, there are more gaps in your experience/education that you have not mentioned here. It is possible that this is not the case, but could you confirm? The way we are interpreting it right now is that you have 7 years of total experience, which includes 3.5 years of international experience.

Hi Bharathi,

if you are not working for the past two years, and want to use the MBA as a way to get back into the work force, I'd say you go ahead and apply. I hope you have a valid reason for the two year break (there will be place to talk about it in the application form).

With 7 years of work experience behind you- you should have enough material to use to impress the adcom. To top that you also have substantial international experience. You can leverage this in ISB's essay on contribution (obviously, insights should be good).

Aim for a 700 plus GMAT score - given that you are on break, I am sure the adcom would expect it. Also, just as a word of caution, never use GMAT as a reason for the break.

We can talk more about this. Should you be interested, reach out through the contacts mentioned below.


Thank you Namita

Will contact you ones I finish my GMAT
Thanks for the insight .

Sure Vivek360. You would need to put more details and thought in those goals - by themselves, they are not quite there yet. Maybe you just mentioned them in brief for our understanding, so that's fine.

Overall, your education, work, experience (including foreign exposure), and extra-curriculars are quite strong. Start working on your applications. Target R1 for sure.

Happy to have a 10-minute chat on your profile if you so wish. Can contact us directly through the coordinates in the signature below.

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


Sure GyanOne!
I have noted your point. Will get in touch when I start applying. Thanks again for the feedback. Much appreciated!

Best regards,
Vivek

Hi baru

Possibly, there are more gaps in your experience/education that you have not mentioned here. It is possible that this is not the case, but could you confirm? The way we are interpreting it right now is that you have 7 years of total experience, which includes 3.5 years of international experience.


Hi

Yes I took in total 3 breaks ( including the current one )
break 1 : Left my first job after around 3yrs- had my first kid , left for US with husband on L2 visa , got my work visa after +1 years and landed in job .
break 2 : after working in US for 3.5 years , had my second kid - landed in India Bangalore ,worked for more than a year
break 3 : Currently

Thank you


Hi baru

Ok, thank you for sharing the further information. While we completely understand the reasons for the breaks, you do have 3 breaks overall, and are currently not employed. Applying to B-school while on a career break of over 2-3 months can be a disadvantage. This does not mean that you cannot make it, but that you must plan taking this into account. For one, ensure that your GMAT score is solid (720+) to make that a solid factor in your favor. Also ensure that you apply to multiple schools, not just one. With determination and hard work, you can get good results.

Hi, Please help with a quick profile review

I am a 27 year old Indian Female. I completed my Engineering and have almost 5 years of experience. I started working as a coder at Accenture, and now I work with one of the Big 4s, in Mergers and Acquisitions, advising Investors and Private Equity firms in India, Middle East and South East Asia on their investments and helping conglomerates in these geographies on post merger Integrations and transformation synergies. This has been a huge career climb, for me, personally. I have worked with and as:
1. One of the biggest e-commerce firm in India as a business consultant advising the firm on how to close some of the loopholes
2. A coder at Accenture (German Telecom client)
3. An American consulting firm with its offices in India - Advising clients in India, Germany, North America and Japan on their tech transformation and go-to-market strategy
4. Big 4 - M&A consulting - Strategy (explained above)
5. A short stint in B2C sales

My post MBA goals are : To work with Private Equity / VCs, and become an investor / PE founder, in the next 5-7 Years.

My undergrads are average from an average college, and I have a GMAT of 690. My job Is demanding and requires a lot of travel, I might improve this score.

My extra curricular include working with 3 startups on their launch and expansion strategy, winning in a national level event in my college (SAE BAJA), led and organised cultural events in college fest, was an active participant in the international student exchange program at school for 2 years, stints in scriptwriting and direction, crossfit.

10th - 82%
12th - 75%
B.Tech - 62%

You seem to have a solid background ATRIKHA. Make sure you're able to articulate your transition from tech side to M&A consulting. Short-term goal of moving to buy side and eventually launching buys side fund of your own also seems plausible and realistic. Since ISB is one-year program and doesn't have internship, make sure to explain how you already know key people on buy side and now need well rounded MBA education fo formal training and finally move to the dark side :)

If you can inprove your GMAT to 720+, it will definately make your case stronger. This is one of the biggest variables in your control now (can't go back and change your undergrad). The extra curriculars are good, but make sure you just don't list stuff you probably did just one or two times. Strong extra curriculars show demonstrated involvement over a period of time and having too many extra curriculars just creates noise. WIsh you the very best :thumbup:
