Hi, Please evaluate my profile.

I am 33 yrs Old. I am yet to give my GMAT. After 3 mocks I have reached 600. I am targeting 730- 740 and I have plans by end of June to get this on the real GMAT.

Acdemics: So So
MBA (2011)- Marketing- ICFAI- 7.26 CGPA
BE (Mech) (2007) - 55%
12th CHSE State Board (2001)- 56%
10th ICSE (1999) -63%

I am a working Management Consultant with 8yrs of experience with average academics.
Extra Curricular - 12th- Sports - Played Table Tennis- Won District Level Championship,
Engg. - (Mech) -Played Football for College Team participated in University championship,
NGO-Along with my parents started an NGO for aged people
MBA- 2009-2011 ADOBE 2010 Summit- Represented Esberi Technologies as a Marketing Executive. Branding activities at the booth to attract customers

Yes this would be my 2nd MBA. I did my first one from ICFAI Business School Kolkata. I did a Marketing Specialisation. I was working in steel plant (1yr) with 18hrs a day work schedule. Somehow after 7 months I realised I can't be doing core Engg. work. Not my cup of tea. So decided to go for an MBA, tried getting through CAT but failed miserably to balance my studies with work. Quit my steel plant job joined start-up in Bangalore as a marketing executive for a print media magazine ( 1yr). Gave my CAT got a humiliating score but got through IBSAT and got a seat at Kolkata. I was lucky to have a phenomenal Mentor cum Teacher (Currently he looking after IIM Ranchi Executive Batches), due to whom, even after having lost 2years during ENgg (Due to financial troubles with my father's business. He went Bankrupt) I was able to get into Management Consultancy.

Currently working as a Senior Consultant- Corporate Advisory- Management Consultancy Practices, Mott MacDonald India. I have worked across 12 different sectors (Including Renewables- Solar). Executed over 40 plus consulting projects for SMES, Maharatnas like GAIL etc, International Clients like Meyer Burger, UB Ostan etc in the following specialities- Technical Due diligence| Viability & Feasibility Study| Market Strategy | Strategic Market Assessment and Entry strategies | Competition Analysis| Data Analysis | Market/Business Plan | Go-To-Market Strategy| Market Research | Market Sizing & Demand Estimation | Market Forecast | Market Estimation |.

My key responsibilities- Project Management | Report writing and communication with client | Proposal preparation | Presentations | Client Management | Technical & Market Analyst | Training and Mentoring

Now, coming to WHY 2nd MBA
We prepare reports which are a requirement for Banker's to fund various projects. Implementation part we don't do hence we have no control on the outcome. Just Excel models and in-depth analysis but whether it will work- WE PUT IN CAVEATS if it doesn't(This is something which is frustrating at times. Have to be blunt here). Having been associated with Management Consulting for last 6 years and having been through various facets off consulting assignments- this has always been limited to Market and sometimes Technical aspects like Right sizing, Capacity planning; I have come to realise I need to upgrade my skills in-order to break into STRATEGY CONSULTUING where they actually see the OUTCOME of their work. This struck me when I wanted to change my Job and applied to the likes of BIG FOUR and gave interviews. Though I was considered but it was more to do with Internal teams and not the client facing ones. I thought to myself and asked what was the issue. I realised I didn't have two Things
1) Finance Knowledge. It easy to say I can learn on the job, which I am doing but it is in limited capacity. With project Life cycle of 3 to 4 weeks and timeline crunches it is rare that I get opportunity do a through and through financial assessment. Even If I do learn I will take few years and that's not adding any value to my career progression
2) During the course of my interviews, I interacted with many people and then I realised that my Current CTC was very low in comparison to my peers in similar role - as low as 56% lower. So if I were to get hired in the CONSULTING DOMAIN I needed to justify my demand for this 56% hike and that is possible if I can give a holistic view points on businesses but that's not possible without understanding the financial nitty-gritties. Honestly, I didn't expect anyone to give me this.

Now, question- Why not Executive - (Those Monthly or weekly certification courses). Personally I feel it will not add value to me because these courses are job specific and mostly funded by Employers. So the personal perspective is out of the window. What if some one like me wants to do Strategy Consulting and my Company does only a part of it and not the whole. If I were to look for jobs based on certification and no real experience then it defeats the purpose of the certification.

That's why in my opinion a fulltime 1year MBA is a good option I believe.

These points drove me to seriously consider a 2nd MBA and that to it had to be a 1year MBA from a prestigious B school and specifically in the domain of Finance (Major) plus Marketing (Minor). Here I am only considering ISB and IIM PGPX, rest 3 options I am yet to decide.

I am open to criticism :)
Regards,
Ritesh

Hi Rajesh

If your computer got stuck during the time you were taking the test, you should report this to Pearson/GMAC and go for a reattempt. You will certainly need to raise this score to at least a 600, but probably significantly more (preferably 680+) to have a decent chance of getting through at ISB. While your extensive seniority and work experience helps offset to some extent, a 650 + GMAT will be very important for you. Your career progression has been good, but with 13 years of experience, you will be among the senior-most applicants for ISB. Anyway, that is for later - for now, try to raise your GMAT score. Even the other schools you mention apart from ISB will find this score much less than sufficient.

From post ISB employ-ability point of view, you have a decent profile though you fall in the pool of applicants which is most common at ISB. One thing which could help you in standing apart from the average pool could be a good GMAT score (anything above 720). So, you should try to improve your score given that time is available for R1 deadline.

I dont know whether IIM B or IIM C executive programs would be a right fit for you because in my view the batch profile there is more tilted towards middle-to-senior level executives with experience of around 8-10 years. You should also do some research on other b-schools which give 1 year MBA like HEC, IE and INSEAD depending upon your long-term goals and aspirations.

Wish you luck.

Your work ex looks good and diverse. ISB gets few female applicants with your kind of experience. Target a 700 on GMAT and with decent essays you should get an interview call.

Feel free to contact us for any queries.

Hi Ashutosh

Your entrepreneurial experience stands you in good stead. Your GMAT score is decent, and your ECA and achievements at work help you stand out in spite of your average acads. The fact that you founded your own concern and grew it, rather than managed a family business, really helps. What is now needed is for you to build a strong connect with your future goals through ISB, and show how an MBA can help you grow further. You are very well-placed in terms of an application to ISB right now. All the best and feel free to come back with further questions as needed.

Hi Ashutosh,

Your overall candidature is strong. ISB ( or any Bschool for that matter) values first gen entrepreneurs. 710 on GMAT is fine. Access the gaps in your skillset and need of MBA and align your goals essay accordingly.

You are good to start working on essays. Feel free to contact us for any queries.

VJtalk, your academics are average, but your overall profile is excellent. The key question you will need to answer with as much experience in a PSU is - what do you wish to do now, and how does ISB fit in between? While even a 680 could work very well for you, if you aim, aim high - so go for 700 and beyond. Should you be able to do that, you will have bright chances of making it.

Feel free to get in touch with us for further queries as needed.

Hi Susheel

While the magnitude of your work experience is fine, and your onsite experience adds further to your profile, they key issue you will need to tackle in your apps is using your excellent QA background to show a relevance with business and technology skills for the future. While your profile is good, QA candidates can sometimes be looked upon as lacking client management experience and management insight, so make sure that you highlight these.

Also, if you can increase your GMAT score by a further 20 points, it would help. The category of applicants you are coming from is very competitive, so a strong GMAT score is important. IIMB EPGP and IIMC PGPEX seem good choices in addition to ISB.

All the best and feel free to come back with further queries or to contact us.

Thanks for sharing.

Your GMAT score is on the low side. Consider retaking, doing better than the average at your respective target schools would help your chances of admissions.

You would also want strong recommendation letters that would play up your leadership potential and ability to collaborate. It would also be a good way to address other potential concerns about your profile.

Wish you all the best!
