Hello berliner18

The 'stats' of your profile are decent, if you attain that target GMAT.
Further success will depend on how well you bring out the 'qualitative' side as well.
Focus on all the admission factors mentioned here and tie it in with a compelling need of an MBA (read here) in your written application.
For HEC, it will help to showcase an international outlook as well (don't confuse it with international experience).

A few thoughts on your profile berliner18:

  1. The work profile and especially the BA roles sounds good - assuming that means a lot more business than tech alone. The post-MBA plan however needs more granularity. Read here.
  2. The higher score will definitely help. So will the ECs - HEC and European programs especially value such efforts.
  3. The GMAT will be very useful. You have not mentioned any brands you have been associated with - this will be important to understand and judge the relative importance of your work.

Overall, play your cards right and things should definitely be very interesting for you.

Cheers,

Hello Eeshangeel

The contours of your profile look pretty solid for HEC.
Past acads, expected GMAT, international exposure, all work in your favor. You may want to read here to know what factors to highlight in your written application.
Not sure what your career goals are though- they will play a vital part in your written application and assessing your final fit at HEC. You can read here to add to your research on career goals.
Since you will be taking the GMAT in Nov, you will be applying in the later rounds. Applying for Jan 20 intake might be better as you will be applying to R1 mostly (please check the dates) and applying earlier is always better considering the large pool of applicants you belong to.

My experience is just 3years as of now (4 years by the time I join). Will it be a downside while reviewing my application ?

Hello Eeshangeel

Should not be a deal breaker as such. Be prepared to show more maturity and a career progress that is quicker than that of your peers.

Eeshangeel,
Your profile looks rich. You have a chance at much higher ranked schools, especially those wherein your post MBA employment could be better. Any particular reason you want to apply to HEC?
