Background and nationality: White, UK, Male, 25 (26 at matriculation)
Undergrad Information: V. high 2:1 (69) in Political Science at top London University (think LSE or UCL)
GMAT: 720 (Q: 47, V: 42, IR: 7, AWA: 6)
Work experience and leadership: Big Four M&A Tax (first promotion after qualifying as CA - not possible to be promoted sooner). Hold a leadership role at work amongst junior staff. Rated highly in performance reviews and have been involved with a number of high-profile client events and internal projects relating to the implications of politics (especially recent UK politics) on our services/work.
Community and others: Have an entrepreneurial background - co-founded a start-up at university and was successful as an investor whilst there. Was also a well-regarded player of a particular skill-based game that resulted in prizes and coached others in this game. Today, I continue appraising investments with my brother and also help out to manage the family business. Community-wise: more politically active than a charity person.
Post MBA goals: Investment banking in London
Anything else? Applying round 2. Expect to produce strong essays and to focus on finance as groundwork towards a long-term goal as a FTSE100 CFO

I believe you will seen as too young and inexperienced for an MBA. People with only 2 years of experience do get in, but they are exceptional. There would be too many Indian, male consultants applying with equally high GMAT scores to you, so they will prefer those with more experience.

Have you considered a MiF degree?

I applied for MFE last year and got admit from Columbia, couldn't join because of personal reasons but I'm not sure if MFE is the right thing to do if you're planning for a PE/VC job, is it?

To be perfectly blunt, it's highly unlikely that you'll secure a PE/VC/HF role post-MBA with only 6 months pre-MBA finance experience. An MFE might make more sense as it'll get you a pathway to a more junior finance role (analyst at an investment bank or junior trader), which you can leverage for a different role.

Although fair warning, the pathways into PE, VC, and HFs are all very different, so do your research before you start making moves.

I intend to apply for the MBA class of 2020 (2018 intake). Would appreciate an evaluation of my profile.

WE : Will complete 6 years by the time I start school ( September 2018)

Gender: Male
Nationality: Indian
GMAT: 730 (Q50, V39, IR 6)

International exposure: Have never had the opportunity to work abroad, but have worked in cross functional teams throughout.

Education: Post Graduate Diplioma in Banking (CGPA 8/10)
Bachelor of Technology: (CGPA 6.1/10)

Professional Experience:
> 3 years at ICICI Bank (India's leading Private sector bank) as a Corporate Credit Risk Analyst. Here I was involved in various processes over the 3 years. (Risk monitoring, Governance, QA, Regulatory, Reporting to Senior Management etc)
> 2 years at Barclays India. Areas of work include Compliance, Risk Assessment, and Project Management

Both the roles above involved liaising with cross functional teams in London, Singapore, Canada, U.S., Bahrain etc.

Extra- Curricular:
Have been involved in CSR(Corporate social responsibility) activities. Active participant in educating underpriviliged kids (among other activities) at various company-empanelled NGOs. Have also been involved in local social work organised within the residential community.

Active participant in sports throughout my school years. University captain of the football team along with being chief sports coordinator.

My biggest fear is that my overall academic record is rather weak and I would like to know what I could do to overshadow this. Is the steady improvement after graduation enough? Does the 730 in GMAT help? I have also recently completed an Executive Education course from Judge Business School, Cambridge - sponsored by my company.

Would love to hear some views. Thanks in advance.

Dear all,

I am briefly summarizing my profile, looking for your feedback regarding the LBS MBA

Background and nationality
Turkish national, 27 yo, love discussions and suck at sports, grew up in Turkey, 1Y high school exchange in US, living in Austria since 9 years

Undergrad Information
graduated from Bachelors in Technical University of Vienna in Business Informatics with GPA 3.53 (one of the best universities in Europe in Computer engineering). Prior to University I have spent 1 year in US as an AFS exchange student, during which time I was very active in extracurricular activities/ volunteering. I volunteered in AIESEC and AFS during my undergrad, served as team leader in AIESEC for a semester leading 5 volunteers. I was in Brazil for a social responsibility project where I had to teach in Portuguese and head to Brazil without knowing a word. In this project I was responsible for designing and facilitating workshops in 3 different NGO run schools. This so far was my greatest leadership demonstration to be honest with

GMAT:
710 Q49 V40

Work experience and leadership
Altogether excluding internships 3.5 years of work experience of which 1 year in IT Consulting 2.5 in corporate banking(front office large corporates) this 2.5 years were incorporating 1 year of traineeship and half year of long term internship(same responsibilities as my full time job). 4 different internships prior my work experience á 1 month.

I have graduated from the traineeship program of the bank. The program is offered with the academic partner Vienna University of Business and Economics, some of the courses from their executive MBA are incorporated in the traineeship program and graded by them. I have finished the program as top of the class with a 4.0 GPA.

Here is my problem, working as a junior for all these years (recently and informally promoted to an associate) I have hard time identifying leadership during my career. I can think of few occasions during my traineeship but that is basically it. I have to admit after trying to start some initiatives and make change in the organization, and always being cut by basically everyone around me, I gave up trying to demonstrate leadership or make a change and ceased to identify my self with the Organisation I am working during the last 12 months. One of my motivations to join an MBA program to boost my skills in leadership and get active again

Community and others
Additionally to what I have mentioned in my undergrad section, I have helped refugees settling in and orientating in Vienna for a very brief time recently.

Post MBA goals
Pursue an investment banking, PE or strategy consulting career with the purpose of achieving my lifetime goal of establishing an investment venture with few of my colleagues primarily investing in companies(soft infrastructure or essential goods) post-crisis situation contributing to reconstruction and redevelopment.

Anything else?
I love traveling, I go on a back packing mission every 2-3 years extending 4 weeks, mingling with the locals trying to stay out of the main touristic ares. During my travels I take my DSLR with me and spend a lot of time taking pictures.

My next goal is to travel Africa (in one of the post-crisis regions) and offer pro bono services most probably in micro finance operations.

Hey all,

I'd first like to say thanks for the help. I'm in the midst of applying for Msc Management and similar programs now and am looking for any suggestions on how to improve my applications / what to emphasise on my profile.

My Profile -
Asian-Singaporean, ethnic Chinese
GMAT: 780 (Q51, V45), AWA 5.5
Undergrad Degree: LLB Law, Durham University, UK (currently in my final year)
Grades: Low 2.1, 62% average
Extra-curricular activities:
- Participated in a few Europe business games, placed in finals for a couple challenges
- Various student club leadership positions at university (pretty law-related)
- captain of college basketball team (more of a school club thing rather than university-level competition)
Work Experience:
- 1 internship at a small tech startup
- 3 internships at big law firms in Singapore (M&A, Intellectual Property, Commercial work)
- 2 years in the Singapore military as a sergeant (probably will not emphasize this)

My weaknesses I feel would be my poor undergraduate grades and not-too-exemplary extra-curricular activities. Most of my previous work experience has been law-related as I've only recently come to a decision to not pursue the law path.

My dream in the long haul would be to do an MBA in the US at a reputable business school and work in the US afterward. My short-term goal would be to do an MiM in Europe, preferably London, and to go into consulting after for a few years, hopefully MBB but also at other firms such as Strategy&, etc.

The schools I am applying to are:
US, MBAs - HBS 2+2, Yale SOM
UK, MiM - LBS, LSE, Imperial College London
Paris, MiM - HEC Paris

Would like advice on my profile for Masters applications and the viability of me getting into these schools. Also on which schools would give me the best chance of getting into the MBB consulting firms, or if there are any schools I may have overlooked. Any help would be much appreciated, thanks!

I am inclined to take it – majorly because of the pay, as at the VC firm I don’t see any growth financially

- INSEAD
- LBS

Please do let me know my chances and whether taking up the job at the start up would impact negatively my chances to a B School

Thanks ….
