What is your GMAT score? You will need to work hard on your GMAT as your acads aren't outstanding (assuming you're not from IIT) and you fall into the Indian IT group.
Have you already taken the GMAT or have any mock scores to share?

Hi Sruti,
The higher the GMAT the better in your case. Score a minimum of 730 if you want to have a realistic chance. Also don't just apply to ISB, have a few backup options as well. PM me if you've any more questions.

Your GMAT score is on the weaker..Rest everything looks ok for IIMs. Try getting a score in the vicinity of 720 to be competitive. IIM's 1Y programs are gaining traction and are attracting more and more folks every year. Try your best to improve your GMAT score. You may read my debrief for GMAT, hope it helps...

You have a typical Indian IT profile so it'll be tough. Also your acads aren't very impressive. I would work super hard on the GMAT and try to score as much as possible. Target for a min. of 740. Also think of a few backup options in case ISB doesn't happen. Wish you all the very best :thumbup:

anishaasaha
Your experience is on a lower side but your profile is atleast somewhat different, which is good. Try to score as much as you on the GMAT. Target 730+ as a bare minimum. You left college just 2 years back so I'm sure who haven't lost the habit of studying :-D
Also I don't understand what you wish to do after MBA? Have you given a thought to it? In my opinion making a career in IP is far more rewarding than what most of post-MBA roles would offer. I'm based in Singapore and folks here in IP earn much more than MBA guys, equivalent to lawyers and sometimes even more. Think about that. PM me if you'd like to discuss sometime.

Thanks Rohit6.

Any pointers on how i could improve my profile other than the GMAT score. Considering I apply in R1 and R2 of this year.

I am still looking at schools, my current list includes - ISB, IIM, Tech specific schools in US (Similar your school list) and Rotman. Is that aiming too high or do I have a shot

Thanks again!

If you come from an overrepresented group all these schools are going to be super tough. I'm telling you honestly.
This is already April so there is little you can do now to improve your profile, other than giving your 100% at your work/extracurriculars where you're already involved in. In my opinion your time would be better utilised to get as high a GMAT as you can. Even that would help only to an extent. Then try apply to majority of these schools in R1 and make rock solid applications. You can hope something then otherwise it gonna be really tough.
At this moment, stay positive, stay calm and keep working :-D

Thanks for the advice Rohit6. Keeping calm and working hard :-D

Over represented group, ie Indian IT engineer right?

I was hoping for some of my career progression highlights to help with the criteria, Can you let me know from your perspective if they would actually help,or are they also the typical 'run of the mill' for normal applicants of ISB and other top schools

Started managing teams at 24.
Owned and ran 20 member multi location delivery team for one of the countries largest payment system at 25
Above system Awarded best in the world, at MWC (Barcelona)
Conversant in 5 languages, which helped connecting with teams at different locations
Consistently youngest among my peers across my career
Exposure to CIO and CTO level discussion across multiple MNC's

There are more points i could hash out, But the above is the gist of it.

Thanks again for taking the time :)

I think you're thinking too much. The stories that you will choose from your past will largely depend on the school you're to, as every schools has slightly different taste, your relative positioning in your applicant pool, word-limit of the essays and multiple other factors. It's always better to have a thorough discussion with an admissions consultant and/or someone else (may be a friend) who understands the b-school admission process and brainstorm these stories before you start an application. For now, focus on the GMAT and the ongoing stuff in your life..

All the best :thumbup:

Hi Rans,

I agree with the other posters that your academics are on the lower side. While your GMAT score is ok, I think it will help retaking it, specifically in context of your low B. Tech. marks.
Your work experience in Nuclear power seems to be the real differentiator to me- what exactly are you doing there, what are your achievements and how will this experience help you contribute to the ISB class? Additionally, what are our career goals after ISB?

I'd also like to understand about your restaurant business- what is its scale? How is it doing? What are your future plans related to it?

Feel free to share your resume with us at my email address provided in my signature. I'd be happy to do a free consultation with you,

Hi Akshay,

Retake the GMAT. At this point the GMAT looks like your biggest challenge.
The rest of your profile is competitive for the IIMs.

Hi,
New to the forum.
I have an Electrical engineering degree from Gujarat University. 10 plus years of experience in the field of Engineering Services.
Have worked for about 5 years outside India (North America (2 yrs),Europe 2.5 yrs & Singapore). Have handled projects across different domains (renewables & Railways).
My academic credentials are :
10 th :78 percent
12th : 83 percent
Engineering: 66 percent.

I have given a couple of practice tests and have scored about 640 odd. What would be a good score (with my experience level ) to be even considered for ISB?.
Any Guidance would be highly appreciated.

Hi,

A GMAT score around 700 should definitely help, given that your academics are also low.

More important will be the following factors:
1. your achievement and impact within your organizations.
2. What are your career goals and why is an MBA important at this point in time?
3. What will you add to the ISB class.

These questions must be answered convincingly in your application.

Hi Gaurav,

Things look good at your end. I am not sure how your GMAT score will be viewed for the IIM PGDM courses, but for ISB, its ok.
As you are a younger applicant I would stress upon a few things that must reflect in your applications:
1. maturity
2. some leadership experiences/ potential
3. clarity in career goals
4. what will you bring to ISB. How will your international exposure help you to contribute at ISB.

Eventually a stellar application will open the gateway for an interview invitation. :-D Do reach out if you'd like to discuss further
