Hi! Thanks for the reply.
I have read in most places that it's not advisable to go for the Jan intake over the fall intake due to variations in job opportunities at the end of the course and a few other things. Is that true?
I am planning to take the GMAT end of November and complete applications by December.

Intake Year: 2019

Pre-MBA Career: Public Relations and Communications
Post-MBA Career: Consumer Goods (Marketing and Brand Management)
GMAT: 710
GPA: 3.3
Years of Work Experience: 2

Notes: My GMAT score breakdown is: (710- Q: 49 and V: 38).

A brief on my background: I have worked for two years in a top-notch international PR and Communications agency (post my under-grad) in Mumbai and served a plethora of MNCs and large scale conglomerates across corporate and consumer verticals in those two years. I was among the youngest people at the agency and was promoted within a year of working there. I have also actively helped in crisis and reputation management for one of the largest corporate crisis in India during my stint at the agency, and truly believe that my quality of work experience has been great over the past two years.

I specialised in PR during my undergrad and carried out five internships successfully during the same time. Three at non-profit organizations and two at industry-specific agencies. Through school, college and work, I have always taken up roles of responsibility and leadership, actively looked out for and asked for opportunities and always showcased the urge to learn.

Additionally, I have always actively participated in extra-curriculars at school and college and performed extremely well academically. I would like to do an MBA with a major in marketing, from a top B-school in the US specifically, so as to add to my experience of PR and communications and achieve concentric growth around my core competencies. Furthermore, coming from a advertising and PR background, I have a fair understanding of the changing communication landscape and would like to deep dive into understanding brand management, disruptive marketing and ways to break through the current clutter to create an impact or spearhead behavioural change.

That aside, in the long run I would like to join the C-suite of an MNC, lead from the forefront and create a lasting impact on the society using my position. However, to get there, I do believe that it is important for me to venture out into relatively new territories for me, i.e. finance, accounting, sustainability, micro-economics and macroeconomics among the others. Hence the MBA.

Furthermore, why the MBA now? Well, because I want to make the switch from the agency side to the corporate side now, and no better way to bridge the gap than do an MBA that would provide me with a holistic understanding of the other side, before I step into it.

Starting today, I have about 50 days till the round 2 deadline to get my essays in place. Does HEC Paris seem like a good option and what are my chances basis my profile?

Note: By matriculation, it would be about 2 years and 7/8 months of work experience

Hello,

Indian male, powertrain engineer, 31 years old, based in Paris area.
GMAT attempted 3 times, last was today (11 dec 2018), I scored 680, Q49/V34. I don't think I will take the GMAT again

5 Years of experience in Paris Area in France on Automobile Engine development. (2 years as a consultant and 3 with an OEM). Currently working as a Senior Engineer on engine control with a large French automobile company. My profile involves development of engine control software for emission norms (such as Euro-6, Bharat6, China6 etc). I am responsible, as a technical lead, for one domain of the engine algorithm development.
My role involves interacting with other departments of engine development (project management, calibration teams etc) along with three external (consultant) engineers who work for my perimeter. Apart from this, there are frequent exchanges with suppliers.

Masters at IFP School, Paris, on Powertrain Engineering. (program in French medium)
Bachelors from an Engineering College in Hyderabad, India, with 81% overall average.
During Engineering I have picked up French language from Alliance Francaise, Hyderabad, I have reached C2 certification. Today I am fluent in the French language.

Before Engineering, I underwent two years of military training at National Defence Academy (NDA), Pune, India. I had to leave because of an injury, else, I would have gone on to become a Pilot with the Indian Air Force.

Post MBA, I would like to work in the field of corporate strategy or market evaluation. I feel these domains are very interesting and challenging.

I thank you in advance for your review of my profile.
Regards,
Director

Hello Dino732

Though 680 is decent, not very competitive, you certainly have an interesting work experience to make a strong case. The international work ex and knowledge of French helps.
At the same time, not sure how the career goals tie in with your past profile and if they seem realistic enough. Hope you have done your research. More than just 'interesting' career goals you need to have goals that are organic, realistic and in case of a major switch you are able to showcase the transferable skills that you have. You will have to convince the adcom that you will be able to make this transition post MBA and you have strong reasons why recruiters hiring for such profiles will be interested in you.

The profile seems pretty decent, I think you may have possibilities to get in.
Although I think that the Finance program at HEC Paris is right now ranked as #1 in the Financial Times Ranking, so it will be quite competitive. Maybe if you have the chance to re-take the GMAT, you should try upgrade your score over 700.
That post-graduate program at LBS is a very positive point (it proves that you can perform well in a top business school).
Another very relevant aspect will be your working experience, in a finance program any experience or internship in Investment Banking or Asset Management will strengthen a lot your application, specially If you have worked at a very top firm (Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley or Blackstone Group...).
Above all, the profile looks OK, (but it is not outstanding), I think you can have many chances to get in Bocconi, HEC Paris will be more tough (try to apply early and write a very good essay). I suggest you to consider other options such as LSE, LBS, ESSEC or IE.

Hi,
That's a great professional profile. You have some good leadership stories- use them well in the application in order to make an impact.
Your career goals sound logical.
If you do use the nonprofit story, let it be linked to a real passion in the said field, and not solely written to please the adcom.
Your GMAT is a little low, but submitting a strong application can help tide over that problem.

Reach out if you'd want some help.

Nope. IIT's and NIT's are more popular as compared to other universities. Besides, Manipal was also listed as one of the institutes of eminence by the govt so you can mention that somewhere in your essay. But apart from that, don't let these people get into your mind and you should definitely give a shot. Just don't give the adcoms a reason from your side to not select you. Get a good score on the GMAT and your essays should be spot on. Because the others applying to HEC will be as good as yourself, so that's the competition to beat.
I'm no expert but I can answer this with conviction that being an IITian or NITian is not one of the criteria to get into HEC mim process. You can search on Linkedin as well.
Good Luck!

Please give me kudos if my answer helped you in any way! :)

Hi enviousfox,

thank you for sharing the additional details.

Overall, you seem to meet the admissions requirements for the MiM Program, and your 730 GMAT will play in your favor.

Please, notice that HEC Paris appreciates applicants with international motivation and global mindset, therefore on your application, it would be really good if you could show this.

Also, do you have any internship experience during college? If so, this will help you as well.

I hope this helps.

Thank you very much.

Warm regards
Alex
