Hello, everyone

In 2019 I will graduate from a top economics school in Russia with a major in Business Informatics with an expected GPA of 8/10.
I work part-time at Accenture Digital as a paid intern since February, first 3 months I was doing testing of a BI system for bank, I partly automated my job with Python and was transferred to work at Machine Learning tasks for Oil & Gas.
Before my job at Accenture I did "digital transformation" (i.e. going paperless) for two companies in my home town: my father's company and a local chain of beauty salons.

In high school I created a local computer club for people with various skills to collaborate and participate in hackathons, but we didn't have any official achievements, so I am reluctant to mention it in my CV/essays.

My GMAT is 770(50Q, 44V).

I would like to know what are my odds to get accepted to a top European MiM like HEC Paris or LBS or a second-tier MiM. And whether it is worth it to attend a paid MiM in Europe (as I understand, the chances to get a scholarship are very low) and pass over a full ride at Russian GSOM MiM (ranked 23 by FT in 2017 and 39 in 2016) in case I get accepted to both.

Thank you in advance.

Hey there,

The good thing is that your profile is strong, further the fact that you are from Russia will make you a diversity candidate.

Accenture is a strong brand name; you should focus on what you worked on and showcase the projects you did. Digital transformation projects can also be highlighted, especially if you created an impact.

School level projects won’t really matter, so ignore them.
Your GMAT is excellent, that will help.

So, if you play your cards right, you have a good chance at HEC and LBS and other top schools like Duke, ESCP, ESSEC. Just make sure your profile is good, showcase your strengths in your essays properly and you may even get a scholarship.

You can check out our customer reviews and see how we have helped similar candidates get scholarship.
