Hey, nice to make your acquaintance, I too worked on SAP Basis/Security for a little more than two years.

I'd recommend you to work on the following two things in the forthcoming days-
1. Your post MBA goals and how can ISB help you? Do you want to move into ERP functional roles/IT Consulting etc. Must have 100% clarity on this because you're from the over represented pool of candidates. So, make sure in your story there's a coherence in what you're doing now and what you want to achieve 2-3 years down the line post ISB/MBA.

MBA Trends for Indian Applicants l Over-Represented MBA woes

2. Start preparing, leverage this community, get a good GMAT score and apply for R2.

Things look decent from the little information you have provided. I will need to know more about your achievements at work and career goals
There is no set GMAT score that will fetch you an interview call. However, with ISB's average GMAT score being close to 710, you should try getting a score more than or close to that.

Arpit,

your first and foremost task is to retake GMAT and come to a 700+ level.
Otherwise your profile looks interesting. I am keen to kow what these innovaions are and what your role is. Are you doing infrastructure consulting?

Interestingly, we are working wih an appliant who has a somewhat similar profile as yours. Infact, I'd like to understand what you civis sense app does. - it seems like it will have a good synergy with the work that he does in Smart cities ( Goodness, i am doing BD for him :lol: )

Anyhow, it seems you are doing a lot of things - it would be great to get on a call and understand what you are upto. I am sure I will have some good tips to share. Feel free to reach out.

Hi Rahul,

The probability of getting an interview call at 630-650 GMAT score is very low. Aim for 680+ instead and see where you land.

Hi Rahul,

The average GMAT score of ISB is 710. Now you're expecting a score between 630 - 650 which is way below the average. What does this imply?
That you will need to cover the gap between your GMAT score and ISB's average score by the way of other aspects in your profile. Correct?
Never forget the average is 710 but the range is 600-700 and you fall within that range!
A candidate is measured on his/her profile holistically and not just on GMAT score. While ISB can be a stickler for GMAT score but you can still focus on other aspects of your profile should you feel that GMAT is not your cup of tea.

Positives of your profile:
- Non-Engineering background - a whopping 67% of candidates at ISB are Engineers. Here you fall in the preferred not-so-competitive pool of applicants.
- Again you represent not so common Industry - Real Estate

Neutral Points
- Average no.of years of work ex. - Average of ISB is 4.3 years.
- Good achievements

Shortcomings
- GMAT score

Now, you should see for yourself do your positives outweigh your shortcomings? I know your profile is not just what you've written above, that's why I'll recommend you fill out this form (https://bit.ly/2kM1MJo) for a detailed analysis of your chances at ISB and if not ISB then what?

Hope this helps. Good Luck with your GMAT.

Best,

While I am aware that a score of 630 - 650 is not enough, my question is my profile competitive enough to be considered for an interview?

Thanks in advance :)

Hi Rahul,

My advice:
1. slog it out on the GMAT. Aim for a 700+
2. What you have written as your achievements are your responsibilities. achievements are the results you achieved, For example, in this pointer: Won multiple awards in company for Business development - the achievement is: 1. winning the largest deal of $$$$$$ in the category/ in the company for that year; 2. entering a new market; 3. increasing market share; 4. cracking a difficult account with $$$$$ value, which 2 people had failed with earlier....you get the gist? Winning an award is a by-product of making this achievement.
So change your focus from responsibilities to achievements. Super critical when you are trying to differentiate yourself from other applicants.

3. you've not mentioned your career goals, but they should be well aligned with your experience so far and hey should also justify the need for an MBA

I'm basically born in India but studied and worked in Europe (Germany, Netherlands) for the past 16 years. I'm a Dutch national with OCI. I'm currently working in Europe.

Hi Santora! Normally it's super challenging to get into ISB with such high experience, but your OCI status should come into picture to give you an exception. Anything over 650 along with a strong application should give you a strong chance. Feel free to write to us for a more detailed profile evaluation.

All the Best!

Hi!

You have the perfect GPA and profile for the EEO. Very high chance of getting an interview call if you can build a strong application. There is good time in hand, so develop a strong set of essays.
