Hi there,

You have an excellent profile. At your age you should be focused more on your leadership accomplishments than on your academics. You also need a strong reason to pursue a second MBA. IF you pursue a regular full time MBA your opportunity cost will be high. Moreover, when you're already earning the average post PGP salary I'm not sure how much increment will you be able to get. Most MBA grads go into middle level management and you'll be looking at senior level management roles. My suggestion here would be to look for your dream job and calculate backwards. What do you need to do to get that job ?
1 year ISB PGP will definitely reduce your opportunity cost and it help you hone your skills and all. But if you can't afford to stay out of work force for that long, go for Exec MBA.
Good Luck !

Best,

Hi,

Could you please help in evaluating my profile and suggest the possibilities of strengthening the same.

My second attempt in GMAT will be in August. The first attempt I've failed miserably and find no point in considering the score.
Currently Aiming at 700+ score.

Academic Background:
Primary and High school was in Muscat, Oman. 10th Grade score- 80% (CBSE)
Secondary Schooling was done in Andhra Pradesh, India. 12th Grade score- 81% (State Board)
Graduated in Chemical Engineering from Caledonian College of Engineering, (Program Affiliated to VIT U, Chennai, India). GPA- 8.54

Internship:
A 2 month long internship in Oman's Biggest Oil & Petroleum manufacturing company, ORPIC. I was placed in the Process & Operation Department.

Work Experience:
I have graduated in July 2014. Currently working in the FMCG Retail sector in the Purchase department for Imports in one of the biggest conglomerates in Muscat, with the name Khimji Ramdas. We have around 90+ stores for which I manage the ordering of all Imported products as well as the replenishment planning. Key account manager for all my Import Suppliers around the world. I will be completing 2 years on this job in November 2017.

Passion:
While doing my engineering and till I joined my job in November 2015, I ran my own home business very successfully of Bespoke Cakes. Participated in almost around 10-12 exhibition events with my cake stalls.
Baking is my passion and I look forward to opening my bakery chain in the future.

Accomplishments:
Student Volunteer for 2 prestigious Conferences on Harnessing Natural Resources in Muscat.
Merit Award in Engineering for Year 1,2&3.
Proud Member of Toastmasters International in Muscat for the Past one year. Reached up to the Division contest within a year in Internation Speech. Visited the biggest District contest in the WORLD (District 20) and had an excellent exposure.

Post ISB (fingers crossed)-
Would love to explore the banking sector which I feel would widen my current exposure. Also, I intend to start up my own business as mentioned above.

Please suggest on my chances of getting through R1 2018 Intake and will it be advisable to apply for R2 considering my WE (Just 2years till R2), if I don't achieve a good GMAT score by August?
Also, I look forward to obtaining a scholarship, How attainable could it be with my profile? (Bridge to India scholarship offered by ISB)

Looking forward to expert advice/suggestions.

Thank you in Advance,
Kavya.


Hi Kavya,

A good profile and one that stands out well!

We think that you have a great shot at ISB and you should definitely apply when you are ready. R1 is prefered simply because, there is a higher chance (relative) of getting through. Assuming that you can ace the GMAT by August, yes R1 will be the right time to apply. If you're struggling with GMAT, you can consider the GRE too and apply by R2 (no harm done).

As far as work-experience is considered, ISB will count your work-experience not on the date of application, but by the number of years/months completed by March 31st. Both the Retail and international experience add value to your profile and international is a huge bonus. Your experience with running your home business adds the extra-curricular touch to your candidature.

We think a 680+ should keep you safe. You might need to introspect a little more on your goals, as the banking sector does not seem to be a natural fit for your profile. Overall, build a strong application and you really should be through.

Feel free to reach out for a detailed discussion.

Hello,

Class Xth : 86.5% (ICSE)
Class XIIth : 75% (State board)
B.Tech- Chemical Engg : 7.6/10 (State govt institute)
GMAT : 670
Job : Working in a public sector steel plant for last 5 years.
: Worked as team leader as well as member of different cross function teams
Extracurricular: Active cricket player, organised fests during graduation, Active participation in CSR activities sponsored by my organisation.
Additional : Certified Lean Six Sigma Green belt

I have few questions :-
1) Is my GMAT score sufficient to be considered at ISB, SPJIMR, IIM's ?
2) Are my extracurricular activities enough to leave a mark ?
3) How is the placement scenario in operational roles in the ISB, IIM's, SPJIMR?


Hi amitavnanda,

We would need a little more information to give you a detailed evaluation, esp on your work experience: professional achievements, awards, recognition, business impact and so on. But on the face of it, professionally you seem to have done well. Managing a team should provide you with enough examples to demonstrate leadership potential. Academically, the track is average and 670 is a little on the lower side, especially for ISB and IIMA. On the extracurricular side, again college was a long time ago and company CSR is good, but not a wow factor.

Operations profiles are welcomed by both B-schools and recruiters, therefore you have nothing to worry there. We think that you have a good profile, and you need to now add the necessary elements to make it spectacular. For instance, give GMAT another shot to push it to 700 and build an application that shows your strengths well, and differentiates you from your peers.

Feel free to reach out for a detailed discussion.

Professional Work Experience:

1ST Company: (27 months)

Global procurement consulting firm: I started as an analyst became Sr. Analyst in 1 year. I was leading team of few other analysts but only for few projects.

Hi Parikh,

You have a very good profile. Your academic record is impressive. A patent and so many published research papers is certainly commendable. Yes ofcourse, if you get a 700+ you should definitely go for R1. Your no .of years of work ex is a little low but I don't think it will hold you back with your profile. You have good career progression and im sure nice team work experience if not leadership.

I don't see any extra curricular and community involvement. Hope you have some involvement to display a well rounded profile. Hope this helps. Good Luck !

Best,

As an ISB alumnus, I must say you have a strong profile!

Good mix of consistent academic scores and diverse, multinational experience. You haven't mentioned extra-curriculars which are a key component of your profile for any top B-school. Given you come from a diverse field, you have a good chance of getting in (assuming extra-curriculars are decent too) as B-schools love diversity in their class. GMAT score of ~680 should be ok given your profile.

Why don't we get on a call to discuss your profile further? You may contact me on the details mentioned below.

Hi,

Please find my short version of CV below.

Academic qualification:
- 10th CBSE : 92%
- 12th CBSE: 83%
- B.E. (IT): 79%
- Yet to give the GMAT

Work Experience : Working in a Multinational-in the Quality assurance domain for 2.5 yrs. ( Manual Testing)
- Leading the Offshore team.
-1 Promotion ( Expecting the next one soon)

Extra Curricular activities :
-A member of Toastmasters International , Have numerous public speaking certificates but they are all till school level + a few from toastmasters.
-Passionate about writing - with some of my articles on social issues present online. ( No certificates as such )
-Helped a friend set up his " Start up " by designing his website / content writing for the website / Selection of products which the consumers might like etc.-
-Many such little things but have no document to prove.

I need an honest opinion on whether i should aim for ISB ? If yes , What should i do to improve my profile & Chances of getting an admit?


Hi somgmat,

We think you have a good profile but you must work on making it spectacular:
1. On the work experience front, leading a team within such a short period of time is good. You must highlight learnings from this in your application, it will add an extra zing. A promotion at workplace will help too.
2. Academically, we think you've done well so far. It will be great if you can also aim for a higher GMAT. A 720+ would place you well above your peers.
3. On the extracurricular side, we think the elements are there- you can showcase a couple of activities that add uniqueness to your profile. For instance, ISB has a thriving Toastmasters community, so if you're good in public speaking, you should definitely highlight this. Do you write a blog or contribute to any existing publications? Writing has become commoditized, so it would be great if you can demonstrate an impact or a following to your writings.

We think that you definitely stand a chance: give your GMAT, get your promotion and sort out your extracurriculars so that they pack a punch. If need be, take your time and apply for R2.

Feel free to reach out for a detailed discussion.





Thanks for the advice. It did motivate me.
1) I Write my own blog but there have been just 8-10 posts till now and not a high following as I am not a regular writer. What should i do to make it impactful ?
2)I am also a freelance model,done a few shows. Can this extra curricular be included in the essays / interviews ?

Hi NewArrival,

While we need more information for a detailed evaluation, but here are a few thoughts.
10 years of work experience or a prior MBA are NOT roadblocks for getting an MBA. However, you need to ask yourself the right questions on Why MBA now, what are you goals and how will another MBA help you achieve this goals.

As long as you have clear answers to this, you can always apply for an MBA with a good GMAT (680+) and strong application essays.

Feel free to reach out for a detailed discussion.

Hi Parikh123,

A strong profile and a well-articulated one as well. Your healthcare background also has the additional component of diversity!

Academically, you have done well. A masters helps too. 700 is a good score for your profile (680 should work too!) and you should definitely apply to R1. Bonus points for diversity. Professionally too, we think you have made a mark with your professional achievements.

We don't see a mention of extra-curriculars, but if you have additional activities that you can showcase on your CV, you'll have the perfect recipe for an ISB application. Well-articulated essays and a good GMAT score should see you through.

Feel free to reach out for a detailed discussion.

Hi dpt_74,

A good profile, but you need to work on making it exceptional. Working in the oil and gas sector does add differentiation as compared to the traditional IT sector, but you need to showcase your learnings during the past 3+ years. Professional accomplishments, promotions and awards will help. Instances of team work and team leadership will help too.
710-720 is a good score for your profile. Extracurricular-wise, you'll need to look at something recent. Writing a technical paper does not say much about your leadership potential or personality, so you need to find and articulate activities that do so.

Feel free to reach out for a detailed profile evaluation.

I have some questions:

1. Is my profile suitable for IIM A/B/C/ISB?


Hi NewArrival,

While we need more information for a detailed evaluation, but here are a few thoughts.
10 years of work experience or a prior MBA are NOT roadblocks for getting an MBA. However, you need to ask yourself the right questions on Why MBA now, what are you goals and how will another MBA help you achieve this goals.

As long as you have clear answers to this, you can always apply for an MBA with a good GMAT (680+) and strong application essays.

Feel free to reach out for a detailed discussion.

Hi There,
Thankyou for providing additional details about your profile. With 10 years of work ex you maybe on the outer age range of applicants. Have you looked at PGPMAX or other executive options. They might save you some opportunity cost. Since you are a team lead im sure you have good leadership and team work experience to display.
Your extra curricular and community involvement helps in making your profile well rounded.
Regarding GMAT score get a 700 to be safe. Although with your higher number of work ex you may have the benefit of scoring a little below average. You have a good profile to get into ISB and IIMs. Hope this helps. Good Luck !

Best,

Hi lohit16,

Academically you have a good profile, the Masters and the IIT brand help too. 710 GMAT is a good score to have too. Professionally, you seem to be doing well as well. Our worry is that your profile seems to be evolving more on the operations side, whereas your interests as well as your PG Diploma lies on the Marketing side.
B-schools like to hear a well-knit well-chalked out story. The next step for you should be to align your MBA story with your strengths. There is no harm is aiming for marketing, but can you demonstrate an aptitude using examples in your history, or should you leave it off the table for now? Clearly written essays will make or break the plot for you now.

We'd like to have a discussion in detail. Feel free to reach out.

Hullo guys,

I am currently serving as a marine engineer with work ex of 4 years in Maersk Line.
10th - 83 %
12th - 78 %
UG cgpa- 8.15 (BSME from TMI off campus centre of BITS PILANI)
Current rank - Fourth Engineer
Similar to most people of my field, have worked or rather lived with multinational crew on board ships.
Would be indebted if my profile could be analysed for ISB and what min. gmat score would give me fair chance.


Hi ankur2406,

Marine engineers add to the diversity of ISB every year, and your profile is no exception. Good academics so far and good professional experience.

A score of 680-700 should be good to make your profile competitive. Our experience with profiles such as yours is that clarity in terms of why MBA and your goals will be crucial to your application. We also recommend that you start thinking in this direction, as it will be the essence of your application.

Feel free to reach out for a detailed discussion.
