Hi,

Below are my background details:

Indian, Female, 30 years
Experience - 9 years
Industry - IT Research & Consulting
Function - Product management
Company - Gartner Inc.
Education - Bachelor's in Business Administration
GPA - 2.56

I'm looking to go for 1 year international MBA, and wanted to check possibility of getting a scholarship. My target list of colleges is top 20 business schools in US and Canada with the priority based on scholarships.

Please provide feedback on my profile and chances of getting a scholarship, and also what Business schools I should target for the same.

Hi Isha:

With the limited amount of information you have provided, I'm going to make several assumptions that may drastically affect the appropriateness of my assessment of your profile. Unfortunately, I simply don't have enough information. So please bear with me.

When you say "international MBA", I believe you were looking for a specific subset of programs similar to USC Marshall's IBEAR program. So you know, there are drastically fewer one-year programs in the United States and Canada that in the Europe (for example), especially considering the international flavor you seek. I don't know if you've taken your own inventory of relevant programs, but I believe you will be hard pressed to find a long list. Based upon my personal experience with clients, the good news is that it is much definitely easier to get into one-year MBA programs. In fact, I'm currently working with a client (Indian female) who recently got into USC's IBEAR program. She received a scholarship as well. I believe it was around $35,000. She was a slightly older candidate (early 30's) and had graduated from university in India that most would consider outside of the top tier. Her GMAT score was right around your score.

Anyway, I digress. My point is that your undergraduate GPA and even your GMAT will be less of a factor in the decision should you apply to a one-year International MBA program in the United States or Canada. Without a doubt, the admissions committee is going to rely much more on your current work experience, and as an extension of that, the likelihood of you securing employment immediately upon graduation, especially if you wish to work In the United States or Canada.

Overall, I am using just one specific data point to provide this evaluation. However, based on other experiences over the past 13 years I have been an admissions consultant, I think you should give it a shot. I think you should apply to international, one-year MBA programs in the United States or Canada. And of course, based upon your current status, I believe he would be a good candidate for USC's IBEAR program. And yes, if you apply you might just get a scholarship.

Respectfully,
Paul Lanzillotti
