Hello Guys!

I am Niraj from India.

I am a Mechanical Engineer (2008) from University of Pune with 70%.

I joined Bhabha Atomic Research Centre, Mumbai (Aug 2009 to Feb 2012) after clearing GATE with 96.18 percentile. Here, I worked as a Research Fellow for Reactor Safety Division. I specifically researched on Residual Stresses in multi-pass welding in Austenitic Stainless Steel Girth Welds in secondary heat loop of Indian PHWR reactors. I also presented my research through 3 papers in 2 international conferences. However, I realised I have more interest in communicating my work to others than pure research.

Then I switched to a French MNC as a Sales Engineer (Feb 2012 to Aug 2013). The company was engaged in creating Finite Element Analysis based software. Initially, for 6 months I struggled, however picked up well later. I was then a Consultant (Sept 2013 to Sept 2014) with an Indian company in similar software products. Here, I had wonderful stint.

Both these stints gave me confidence to start my own venture related to communication. I and my wife started a small firm in Education space in Sep 2014. Here I work mainly on developing market for the firm as well as designing a curriculum in Communication Skills for entry level graduates. The firm saw a break-even within 14 months and the turnover in third year has grown by 400% compared to first year. In Sep 2016, I co-founded prepify.in with my friend which is in EdTech.

All these experiences have highlighted my Analytical abilities, Communication Skills, Project Handling abilities, Marketing Skills, People Management, Planning and Execution. However, I feel that these assets when integrated with formal courses in MBA curriculum can help to create a career in General Consulting.

Total Experience: 8 years
GRE: 319 (I was comfortable with GRE than GMAT) (Should I repeat it?)
Aim: INSEAD, IMD, HEC Paris

I request the experts to evaluate the profile and suggest any improvements.

Thanks
Niraj

Hey there,
Good to hear from you good sir!

Well the short of it is that you have overall a good profile, but a GRE that would be the equivalent of a 610 on your GMAT. Which is very low for the schools mentioned above, and especially for an Indian candidate. I would strongly recommend you consider a retake.

For some reading and thoughts on why this is so vital, have a look here:

I hope this helps!!
