I am looking for a suitable MSc Finance ( could also be Banking / Corporate Finance) or MiM Program program in USA/ Europe.

Let me shortly talk about my profile:
GMAT 1 : 680 Q47 V35 Feb 2016
GPA: 2,18 on a 4-point scale where 1 is the best grade ... approx. 3.1 - 3.3 in the US GPA scale.
toefl ibt: 102
undergrad: #1 ranked university in austria (university of vienna) BSc in Business Administration. graduated in 2016.
work ex: I did two internships á 3 months during my studies and am currently working in IT consulting in Turkey (current client is a multinational car manufacturer)

So I know that my GMAT may probably be not high enough for the top notch programs in the US ( like MIT Sloan). But I still want to try my best.
Thats where I need help. Are there any prestigious programs in the US, where I'd have a chance to get admitted?

So far for the US.. What about my chances to get into schools like HEC, Imperial College, Warwick, Bocconi, IE or ESADE?

Thank you very much in advance.
Looking forward to get helpful advice.

Greetings from Istanbul!

Hey mke,

From the info you have given, MIT may be a far shot, but other schools such as Duke, Michigan and maybe Kellogg can be within reach.
Your GMAT of 680 is competitive enough and that coupled with internships and cultural diversity, should be enough to attract the schools.

Just make sure your essays highlight your strengths and the values you will bring to the school.
You haven't given much info on your extra curriculars so can't comment on that.

CGPA is OK, not ideal, but it can be compensated again by highlighting other strengths. If your score is good compared to the relative grading in your school, be sure to highlight this.

As for HEC, Imperial College, Warwick, Bocconi, IE or ESADE.

HEC would be the toughest, but if you prepare your application properly, you should be able to land an admit at all of these.

I would suggest you take the Free profile evaluation we offer at:
This will allow us to get a 360 degree view of your profile and give you feedback accordingly.
