Hi prags1989,

Thank you for your post. It's a little tough to say without knowing where your GMAT score will land or the finer details of your work at J.P. Morgan. But based on what you've shared, you will have to be super sharp and effective in explaining why you wish to transition from your current situation (operations for a financial firm) to marketing or consulting.

I'd also encourage you to determine whether it is indeed marketing or consulting that you're targeting, as they are different, of course, and whichever you choose to target will affect the manner by which you present your goals and narrative. When you do so, please be sure to explain in detail how who you are and what you've done to this point, plus the second MBA, will enable to make the transition that you desire. What knowledge, skills, and experience do you already have that are relevant? What knowledge, skills, and experience are you missing and therefore need to acquire via the second MBA? How exactly will you acquire these things at ISB? (And at the same time, what unique contributions can you make to the class?) On top of all that, you will have the added challenge of explaining why a second MBA is necessary in order to do so.

As an aside, are your extracurriculars limited to cricket during your first MBA? (If so, that feels a bit limited.) Either way, please be sure to unpack your life experiences and communicate who you are / what you value / the passion and purpose that drive you beyond merely your professional life. I would also encourage you to read more some of the topics references in this post here: https://www.avantiprep.com/blog/the-mos ... on-process

Kind Regards,
Greg
