Hi,

I would be thankfull if you can evaluate my profile.

Male, 26, Italian
GMAT Score - Expected 700
Master Degree Electronic Engineering from one of top3 in Italy, score 107/110
Work Experience:
6 months Thesis at semiconductor leader company in Italy + 1y same place after graduation
1y in Austria in another semiconductor multinational company
Both with international relations (U.S., China) as an R&D engineer
Passion: Snooker player

For many reason I would like to apply to a part time MBA in Singapore, possibly at NUS, focusing my study on strategy and operations so continuing working for my company that has asian HQ there.

Thank you

Hi there, and thanks for writing! I think you could be a viable candidate for NUS if you hit your target GMAT score, make it very clear in your application what your post-MBA goals are and how NUS will help you meet them through its specific resources, fully communicate your professional and personal impact on your resume, and get strong recommendations that attest to your performance and potential (this especially will be important since you're relatively early on in your career). Hope that helps a bit - let me know of any specific questions!

Thank you so much for your answer Nisha.
In fact my main concerns are about my work experience, because in such technology big companies is almost impossible to step forward in the career in the first 2-3 years if you are in a technical position. So it’s a bit hard for me to show my leadership in the work environment in the application. Do you think that good LORs can solve this problem?

For a part-time program, applicants generally have more work experience (4-5+ years) so you might benefit from waiting a couple of years. If you do decide to apply now, though, you'll want to show early indicators of progress (if not promotions, then awards or increases in responsibility) and have your recommenders attest to your strong potential based on your strong work so far. Hope that helps!

I’m writing on this topic again after I took the GMAT to ask for an advice. Besides my two preparation tests in which I score 690 and 700, today at the exam I received a 650 (Q47 V32), even if I didn’t feel anything different and nothing was wrong in the environment.
Now I’m wondering if I should retake the exam, or if I could have a chance anyway since I saw the average score at NUS is approx.650 and my country is not so well repredented in Asia.
Thank you in advance.
