Hi Guys. Wanted some opinion on my chances at HEC Paris. I scored 700 on GMAT. I am a science graduate and scored 89.88% in my graduation. I have two years of experience in total (1.5 years in Real Estate and currently working with HSBC from last 7 months). I studied in University of Delhi India and my work experience is in Dubai, UAE.

Thank you for posting your profile.

You have the academic potential to be competitive. On the work experience side, you will need to demonstrate focus, how your education and experience fit together towards your MBA and the post-MBA goal. Details of your experiences and personal qualities will be important factors in determining your success.

For the HEC MBA, the minimum experience is 3 years, so you still have time to build up your profile and reflect on your goals.

Wish you all the best!

Hi guys,

I am planning to do a Master of Finance (pre-experience and preferably one year) at either HEC, LSE, IE or ESADE from summer 2016 on.

My GMAT is 680 (Q45/V38) and my undergraduate GPA is 3.38 from University of St.Gallen. Additionally I already did an M&A internship at an European BB and an M&A internship at a Big4 firm.

Considering my lower GPA and poor GMAT do you think I have a chance for these master programs? Or do I have to retake the GMAT, even though I am already quit late for application?
If you need more information, please post.

Thank you for your help guys. Really appreciate it.

Hi, I have 3 years of work ex in Business Operations in F&B, Hospitality and Real estate. GMAT 700. What are my chances.

Also I wanted to know how much will applying for R8 ( Jan 2017 intake) affect my chances with respect to applying in R1 next year.

Hi,

The average exp at HEC is 5+, also the average GMAT is around your score.
So unless you have an exceptional career story, solid international experience or some unique nationality, go for R8 for jan 17.
Though I would suggest try for sep 17, one of the earlier rounds instead, your chances will be higher for both admissions and scholarships.

Cheers!
Current HEC student

Hi,
Great to see a thread similar to what I'm looking for.
I'm a B.com (Hons.) graduate from the top Commerce college in India with a 3+ years experience in the real estate industry currently heading the marketing department of my firm.
I gave my GMAT in April and scored a 660.
I have HEC on my radar. Can you help evaluate my profile?
I'm also planning to give GMAT this month with the hopes of improving the score, but I would like my evaluation on my 660 score considering my worst case scenario that I don't care better.
Thanks in advance :)

P.S. I plan to apply in the next R1 or R2

Unlike B Schools in other regions (US, India), the average work ex at European b-schools is higher.
- HEC has an average of 5+.
- the avg GMAT score is around 690.
- Almost every student has an international work ex.
- Average age 29
plus there will be your essays, interview etc.

Everything will be taken into account to evaluate you. If you lack in something, you have to make up by something else.

660 with 3+ experience and I assume (correct me if I'm wrong) no international work ex won't be a strong enough case.
There are some with 3+ work ex, no international exp but with a gmat score of 750+!

So you can either try if you want, or spend 1-2 years to get some international exposure, higher GMAT, extracurricular etc.
I believe that will also make you a better match to the cohort, helping you to get the max from your MBA experience!

Hi David

Your overall profile, work experience, and international experience is excellent, but your GMAT score may be a little below par. Try and increase this if possible. Other than that, you would be a great fit at HEC.

Your GMAT score is ok. I got pre-select with a GMAT of 650 and I declared that I won't be retaking the test.

I barely had the time to take the exam, let alone retake it.

GMAT is not the determining factor, WE is and international exposure is.

You have both.

Hi there!

I am actually a MBA student at HEC and I would like to say a few things about Indian profiles in our class: 1/ we have Indian guys with both GMAT 750 and 650 - the difference is age (26 vs. 36) and experience (respectively); 2/ the guy with GMAT 650 started his restaurant chain back in India and said he had worked a lot on his essays and other apects of the application.
Actually, the mean GMAT score at HEC is something up to 700 and I would only feel comfortable enough with that score or better. Nevertheless, a good news is that 700 is not that tough. The bad news is that if you can't get something close to 700 then it could be a bit difficult to follow the curriculum... not for you though as you have a goog quants percentile.
Our Indians almost all have beaten the mean and, in my opinion, those in a class are super-smart or so :)

So some actionable points for you:
1/ improve your GMAT score given your age and lack of super-exciting profile (almost all Indians out there are ingeneers with some good experience both in India and abroad);
2/ make use of your cross-border work and make it clear that you stand out with the skills you have aquired in the US or elsewhere (like leadership, unconventional approach to well known problems together with identifying and framing problems etc.);
3/ don't underestimate essays and put even additional focus on these.

After all, HEC Paris is a very selective school but, to be frank, you will struggle to find a decent job anyway, so think twice before making such an investment (yes or no at all, HEC or INSEAD or LBS or IESE or US B-schools). I am saying that absolutely seriously as there is a trend to hire Masters of Finance from HEC Paris for some juicy jobs as they ask for less, work much harder and know a way more about finance than MBAs do,,,,

good luck!

I see that you got some excellent advice here already so just want to say that in my opinion you need to do two things: 1. Increase that GMAT score and 2. Work hard on your essays and your chances should be pretty good. The essays are really important as they will be what sets you apart so put as much effort into them as into the GMAT!

Good luck!

Hey!

I've scored 640. Also product manager. Brazilian, 27 yo. Bachelor in Communications. I'm was accepted to January 16 intake (rolling July application).

Probably an expert opinion is better than mine, but I would say you're on-track. ;)

Good luck! Maybe we'll meet in Jouy-en-Josas by next year.
