Hi,

I have done my Bachelor's and Masters in Pharmacy. Post completion of my M Pharm, I had worked in Biocon, a leading biopharmaceutical major in Asia, as In Process Quality Assurance Personnel for 2 years (Feb 2014 - Jan 2016). My work was totally related to Quality aspects in Insulin Formulation Plant (Fill Finish Site). Currently, i am working in Mylan, a leading Generic major in the US, as R&D QA Quality Personnel since January 2016. My work here is related to Quality aspects in the development of Formulation. As on today, i hold 3+ years of Career experience.

I can also converse in 6 languages including Spanish. I have been recognised for my outstanding work during the span of 2 years. I have come across a very common fact that B Schools look for diversity also. So I know that I don't have a great score during my 10th & 12th. Will it be a black mark for me during my MBA selection? Will my Pharma Background play a role in differentiating me from the IT guys who are generally in the large crowd of applicants to B-School? Please guide me. Let me know how else I can build up my profile? I aspire to work in management roles in a Pharma Company. But am totally unaware of what kind of roles do people in management handle. The only thing i know is the work is pretty challenging and of-course is exciting too. I believe MBA will give me a threshold to start with this role. So am preparing for GMAT to pursue MBA (General Management/Operations) from a reputed institute like ISB/IIM's. My aspiration is to work in Project Management/Portfolio Management/Business Development/General Management Roles in reputed companies like Dr. Reddy's/GSK/Novartis. Hope my Idea is clear. :)

Please Evaluate my profile.
Thanks in advance.

Hi Souvik,

All in all, a very unique profile and frankly, it can go either ways depending on how you project yourself. The weight of your candidature will fall not on your past achievements, but what you wish to do post ISB. We think you have already identified that you need to improve your GMAT, and it's great that you are working towards it.
The next step should be to identify post-MBA goals and stitch them with your past and present in a coherent manner. Adversity strikes everyone, therefore, we think that your essays can make or break your application. Can you show in your application learnings from your past, that you are applying to your present or your future? It will be an uphill task, but definitely doable, if you put in a lot of effort.

Feel free to reach out in case you would like to discuss further.

Hi Arvind,

Good profile. We especially like the fact the you have clarity on goals and also that your goals are linked to your current profile. These would make a great MBA story! Every year, the number of applicants with an operations background is increasing, therefore the pool is extremely competitive. While your academic background has been good this far, we would recommend that you aim for a high GMAT score as well, to make sure you're a cut above your competitors. A score of 710+ should be good here.
We think that your essays can make a lot of difference in your application. If you can translate the differentiation and the clarity of goals into a strong application, then combined with a good GMAT and your extracurriculars, you should be able to sail through.

I am currently going into 3 rd year business studies Bbs in dcu. I am doing a pure business with the preferred choice of specialising in economics or finance. My profile is that I have 4 internships 1 is a jp Morgan 3 weeks summers internship, Disney also a summer internship for 3 weeks and finally Zurich bank 2 months last summer. My final internship was at Deloitte this year where I spent 9 months working for them.
While in college I was involved in numerous college activities and socties throughout my experience in college. They were as follows football and athletics where is competed for the college. The economics and entrepreneurial society where I actually set up a bakery in college for one year in which I turned a profit and there was no need to have a part time job. I am sitting the gmat in a few months time and have been scoring 650 660 but I am planing on scoring in the 680 690 hopefully. During college I was unsure of what I wanted to do and have now realised real esaste is where I want to go so my choices are lse real esaste, ms real esaste New York university and msc real estate ucl. In my current degree I am averaging a high 2.1 with the hope of getting a first.
Next year I have a year off in college where I must do a year long internship to add to my experience could anyone point me in the right direction is another investment bank okay or should I look at a pure real esaste job to help with my profile when applying. I look forward to your response and hope to tell me if I have a chance of being accepted in or if there are any good programs that I missed out on


Hi Zac,
You have a good profile in the making. Your three internships although very different from each other, are with good brand names. I'd like to understand how you came to the conclusion that real estate is your calling? You do not seem to have any work experience in the field. If you are very keen on working in this space only, you should try to get atleast 1-2 years work experience with a real estate company before you go on to do a masters in the field. If you just jump the gun now but don't enjoy the course later you are going to be extremely miserable.

To answer your second question- both IB and RE are entirely different industries. Conduct information interviews about both the industries to understand them better. Reach out to relevant college alumni and find out about their experiences. You have already been in IB so you have some idea about the work involved. RE can be a good place to join to test the waters and to validate your liking for the industry, but in my personal opinion its an unorganized market and growth aspects are always going to be better in IB.

Hi Souvik,

Your biggest drawback in my opinion is your career gap. How long has it been since you quit work?
In general business schools are unforgiving about career gaps unless they are backed by a strong reason. You must address why you had to quit, when you write the application. And also mention about the transport business and what you gained out of it (skills and knowledge).

I do find it concerning if you are not planning to get yourself a job now- its 11 months before the next ISB session starts, and if you are not working in full time capacity before that, then your career gap will only keep widening. B-schools will not be too happy with that scenario.

If the transport business is still on and you have scaled it up in some way, then it may offer as an explanation to the gap...but I will need to understand this better

Hi Sangram,

We need more information on your profile: current role, quality and depth of experience, and extracurriculars to make a deeper assessment of your profile. However, here are our initial thoughts:
- 7 years of experience pegs you at the higher end of the experience, therefore your application should focus more on the depth of your experience and your professional and personal achievements.
- Begin preparing for GMAT, if not already started. You can find a ton of resources on GMAT Club itself, that will help you set the ball rolling. Try and aim for a 680+ in GMAT, to keep your profile competitive.
- Dig deeper on extracurriculars to showcase that you are a holistic profile and have been able to make an impact beyond work.

A combination of all three of them should be able help you put up a good application. Feel free to reach out with specifics in your profile for a deeper evaluation.

Hello,

GMAT : Taking in June end ( mocks 690-710)

Qualification :

B.TECH Mechanical :7.19 CGPA Amity University Noida .

Currently working with Samsung Heavy industries (oil & gas domain) as Senior Piping Engineer. My current work ex is 5 years.

I have been part of lot of activities both Sports and CSR within the organisation. Received Star Performer award.
Have been a part of client handling and model reviews within the organisation.

I have a Six sigma green belt certification.

In college level, organised cultural as well as Tech Fest, was mainly the moderator in these events.


I just have need to know if ISB looks at UG colleges ? and seeing the market this year what can be the average GMAT score .

Thanks


Hi Ashwin

Your professional profile is quite good but your CGPA is slightly low. Try to compensate with a strong GMAT score (700+ and if possible 720+). The UG program you are from is tier-2, but that should not deter you at all as there are plenty of ISB alumni from your school. In terms of the average GMAT score at ISB, it is currently 707 and is expected to rise slightly this year.

Hi Rishkum

- Which part of your experience comes first - the mobile sales one or the NGO one? Also, what are your post-MBA goals?
- Your academics are not stellar, so a strong GMAT score (700-720+ if possible) is advised.
- Your profile is otherwise decent - some differentiation by way of your background and work, good evidence of leadership and initiative, and some good extra-curriculars as well. This can shape up into an excellent application with some hard work.
- As of now, your job is cut out - do well on the GMAT first and then focus on building a strong app.

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

Hi Shreyashi

- Your professional background is certainly differentiated. However you will need to make a clear and cogent case for an MBA from where you are currently in your career.
- Your acads are quite good and your ECA are decent. With ISB's revamped application this year, the importance of ECA has come down a bit, but you are well placed anyway. Organizing college fests may not bring much credit.
- For the GMAT, aim for 700+, the higher the better. We can review again once you have a score.

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

Hi Rishkum,

The good news is that a strong sales and marketing profile always stands out in the clutter of applications. We believe that you have all the right ingredients for a strong candidature and application. The start-up experience would be crucial here. If you can demonstrate impact and talk some calibrated achievements, you definitely have an edge! On the academics, the previous scores do seem average, so while you need not aim for too high a score, a 690-700 should keep you safe.

All in all, our advice is to tackle GMAT and get it out of the way, as for you essays will carry the weight of the application.

Feel free to reach out in case of queries.

Hi Shreyashi,

The answer is yes! Your profile does fall under the diverse group of students that all B-schools want to add to their class! You seem to be doing well professionally as well. Your academic background is strong and a GMAT score of 680-700 should peg you safe.
However, our experience of working with applicants with your background has taught us that the biggest challenge that you will face, would be articulation of post-MBA goals and career path. A lot would depend on showcasing how ISB can add value to your career trajectory. If you can clearly articulate these in your essays, then you have a great shot at ISB.

Our recommendation is that you complete your GMAT asap and then spend time working on your strengths and mapping them to your long-term goals, as this can make or break your application.

Hi I would love it if someone could basically do a profile evaluation of mine with respect to applying in ISB this year.

Full-Time Work experience - I have 8 years of work ex till date (June 2017) and all have been with Tata Steel and in manufacturing. I started out in mechanical maintenance where i was part of the team that commissioned and ramped up operations of a new plant.
Post that i had a brief 6 month stint in Business development where i was in a team with Mckinsey to improve our overall EBIDTA of our organisation.
Post this stint i joined production and was incharge of our main Auto-segment manufacturing line for 1yr.
After which i took over from the plant head and was heading the plant for 2years (about 300 people) till we decided to stop operations and relocate the plant to our central facility. My experience of shutting down that plant (dealing with government bodies, distraught workmen,employees and contract employees) and completing the task with absolutely no major events(strikes,newpaper coverage) etc was an achievement in itself.
Post this im now looking after engineering and projects for the past 2.5 years where i take projects right from its inception through the various capital and government approvals and till its site erection and commissioning and playing a key role in our division's plans to double its capacity in the next couple of years.

GMAT Score - Will be giving it by end of July.
College info - Mechanical Engineering from College of Engineering Pune(COEP). Passed out in 2009. Grades are CGPA - 7.85/10.
10th - 77.2 %
12th - 89.4%

Extracurricular -
College - Was part of the football and badminton teams. No major tournament victories but represented the college in national level tournaments in football.
Was Co-founder of the college entrepreneurship cell and hosted a lot of events / programs to facilitate a spirit of entrepreneurship in the college.
Was co-ordinator for the college sports festival and helped out as a volunteer in the technical festival for 3 of my 4 years in college.
Was part of the robotics club for the first 1.5years of college and came up with a mini - robot which won nothing basically, but participated in events with it.
At Work - Initiated an employee engagement wave/system in the first month of joining work(2009) which basically focused on daily employee appreciation and is now a part of our work system system (5years since).
Was employee engagement champion for the new joinee work group.
Organized company wide football tournaments for 2years for all employees and their families.(was never done before)
Personal - Have always been associated with orphanages since a very small age. I personally help out a orphanage in my hometown whenever i visit there. (Volunteer+ take the kids out for picnic etc spend time playing football with them. Help out with some difficulties in maths etc). Also i intend to start an orphanage sometime in the future. (I dont know if i should use this or not for my mba admission as its not something i do to grow professionally or benefit me professionally. Its something i do just out of my own desire)

Important certifications - Certified internal auditor for ISO 9001 and TS 16949. Also some certifications in plant safety programmes.
Certified accessor for TBEM (Tata Business Excellence Model) which is a business excellence award for companies based on the Malcom Baldrige award.

When you plan to apply? - R1

Your post-MBA goal - My goal is just one - To become CxO and lead a top manufacturing firm. (This is a blunt goal - but that is what it is)
