Thanks in advance! :)


Hello sagarmehra2015,

The good news is that your work experience in logistics will align well with the course curriculum at ISB. Moreover, your strong academic performance at the college level will also help build a stronger case for you.

While the above-mentioned factors are crucial, your success in gaining an admit also depends on a number of other factors. For starters, we recommend that you work towards achieving a higher GMAT score. Remember, the higher the better ☺

Further, business school also like to see applications that portray a logical sync among work experience, short term goals, and long term aspirations. Currently, however, your marketing degree and your goal to take on a strategic consulting role do not flow in the most logical manner. Thus, we also suggest that you spend some time on story boarding and build an application, which is more focused.

We are confident that on addressing the aforesaid, you stand a strong chance at ISB!

Should you feel the need to discuss your profile/career goals in greater detail, please reach out to us for a free profile evaluation ☺

Hi,

I am an ISB aspirant Could you please evaluate my profile and suggest me on the areas on which I will have to work on, in order to enhance my profile.

Indian/Male/26 years

Academic Details:
X - 82%
XII - 93%
Grad - 81% (B.Tech- Civil Engg)
Pursuing PG in Project Management from NICMAR (Distance learning)

Work Experience - 4.5 years
I am currently working as a Project Engineer for Knight-India. It's a UK based Project Management Consulting firm. I have been a sole Project planner for a 4 million sft Commercial development with a Project Cost Rs 800 crores. My key responsibilities involve project scheduling and tracking, Resource Planning, MIS (Management Information System).

Prior to joining Knight Frank, I was associated with Sobha Ltd and Aparna Constructions, where I've handled the similar function for the Residential developments of size 5 lakh sft and 2 million sft respectively.

Accomplishments:
-Certification of Appreciation for achieving First rank in academics during Graduation.
-Achieved 15th rank at the University level among all the Colleges affiliated to JNTUH.
-Presented technical Papers at various reputed Universities like IIT Madras and Osmania University.
-I was a representative for the Civil Engineering department to conduct various technical events at college under ISTE (Indian Society for Technical Education)
- Won a couple of medals for presenting technical papers and projects during Graduation.

I am planning to take GMAT by mid of August. My target is 700+ and I've been scoring in the range of 670 to 690 in the mocks.

The biggest concern I have is the lack of Extra Curriculars. Could you please evaluate my profile and suggest me about how to enhance my profile to get into ISB.

I've heard that ISB prefers candidates from diverse backgrounds. As I am from a non-IT background, Do I have any advantage as such??


Hi srikanth9502 :)

At the outset, we must tell you that you have a strong work profile, complete with achievements and crucial responsibilities. This along with a GMAT score of 700+ should give you a good chance at cracking ISB.

Now, coming to your first query. Yes, extra curricular activities are important. However, having fewer extra curricular engagements is rarely ever a deal breaker. Instead, this is a good time to think about your strengths and string them into a story, which speaks about the person you are and shows a natural flow between your work experience and career goals.

Next, yes ISB does prefer diversity. However, at this point, it is more important for you to keep performing at work and have a larger number of talking points in your applications. In showcasing that you possess a set of skills, which will add overall value to the school, you will definitely build a strong case for yourself.

If you feel the need to have a more detailed discussion on your profile, please feel free to connect with us ☺

All the best with everything!

Hello maddy2511

Thanks for sharing your details.

The good news is that you have extensive work experience and your career follows a logical growth trajectory. You definitely come across as a stable candidate and this will certainly work to your advantage.

That said, your GMAT score is slightly on the lower side (by ISB standards) and we recommend that you retake the GMAT, aiming for a score upwards of 700. Further, while most business schools look for candidates with holistic profiles, the paucity of extra curricular activities will not have any major impact on your chances of success.

At this point, focus on creating a stellar application, which demonstrates your leadership abilities, and builds a natural flow among your professional experiences, interests, and career goals. If you take care of these points, you are bound to be a competitive applicant in the ISB pool.

Should you wish to discuss your career goals in greater detail please reach out to us! ☺

Good Luck.

Hi,

I am an Indian female, 22 years old.
Following are my academic scores:
10th: 91%
12th: 80%
Bcom: 65%

I am a Company Secretary with 2 years of work experience as of date. I am also studying for the Masters.

I have worked in a reputed CS firm for 18 months. I worked as an executive Company Secretary and I am currently working in a mid- sized CA firm.

Extra Curricular:
A budding spoken word poet,
Have done a certificate course in creative writing from Symbiosis School of Liberal Arts,
Volunteering at Robin Hood Army, Mumbai chapter (NGO) since a year,
certified jazz dancer from Shiamak Davar School of Performing Arts.

I am planning to take the GMAT in September and my target score is 740. I believe I can achieve it, although, my concern is with respect to my work experience and my overall profile. Is this is a good enough profile to get into ISB?
I will gain three years of work experience in March 2018.

Hello MrJukeHardbane :)

Your five years of work experience, enriched with international exposure, is definitely appealing. We are confident that a strong portrayal of your career progress, along with a logical link up of your experience with your short-term and long-term career goals, will definitely give you a good chance at ISB.

That said, a good score on the GMAT is equally important and you should definitely be looking to score upwards of 700. It goes without saying, the higher the score, the better your chances of success will be. At the same time, keep performing in your current role at work. Remember, you should strive to include as many talking points in your applications, as you can.

We suggest that you concentrate on your GMAT. Once you have your desired score, work on an application that represents your strengths and focuses on the holistic nature of your candidature. ☺

Should you feel the need to discuss your profile in greater detail, feel free to approach us.

All the very best! ☺

Hi Sagar,

I strongly believe that you should apply to ISB when your application can be the strongest. If its round 2, then so be it.

Our applicants who apply in R2 have had excellent results so I know for sure you are not disadvantaged. However it will be good to undesrtand your circumstances and your profile to offer more customized advice. Feel free to reach out.

Hi sagarmehra2015,

ISB receives more or less equal applications in both rounds and the seats offered are in proportion to the applications received. Thus, you are neither at an advantage or at a disadvantage, if you apply in R2 :)

Apply to ISB, when you feel like you are in a good position to do so. If you are satisfied with your GMAT score and are ready to write your essays, apply as soon as you can. However, if you feel that a slight delay may help you improve your GMAT score or may give you a larger number of talking points in terms of job responsibilities, you may apply in the next round.

Hope this helps ☺

All the best!

Hello jigneshmaniyar,

Your extensive work experience will surely put you at an advantage; especially if you are able to build an application, which focuses on your leadership skills, and achievements, and portrays a strong sync among your professional experiences, short-term goals, and long-term aspirations.

On the flip side, however, we recommend that you improve upon your current GMAT score. A score above 700, coupled with an application that adequately represents your strengths will give you a strong chance at cracking ISB! ☺

We take this opportunity to offer you a free profile evaluation. Should you feel the need for the same, please feel free to approach us. ☺

All the best!

Hi,

Extra-curriculars are a definite good to have, but they are not mandatory for the ISB application. Focus upon your work achievements and leadership roles at work.
Also, a 650 GMAT score is low. Aim for a 700+

DO i have any chance in ISB ?

Hi sangram1988,

Academically you've done well so far. NIT is a good brand on the CV. You come from a differentiated background that would make a good fit at ISB. A few things that we think you might want to focus on:
- ISB would count your work-experience as applicable by March 31st 2018. This would put you at the higher end of work experience. With higher work-experience, ISB would like to see stellar leadership/professional achievements and the ability to make business impact too. From your description, we think that we should be able to find the right examples there.
- In terms of GMAT, a 700+ score should keep you safe, but 680 and a great application may still do the trick.
- Extra-curriculars are important because they help to show your personality holistically. CSR activities, hobbies, activities beyond work, are an important part of the application and you might want to build these in your profile.


Feel free to reach out for a discussion.
