Hello There!

I'm an Indian Female with a Bachelor's degree in Electronic & Communication Engineering from an okay-ish university in India.
CGPA - 6.55/10
GMAT Score - 650
Internships in my home country and abroad (in IT sector, Electrical dept, and a bit of administrative jobs)
I have no managerial experience only in Extra Curriculars and a few Volunteer Experiences here in Qatar.
I can get strong LoRs.

I want to enroll in a well reputed European University (rank 1-30) for Masters in Finance.
Universities like IE, ESADE, EADA, ESSEC, Grenoble, Skema etc.


Will I come through? What are my chances?

Hey there,
Well it's a biiit hard to say without more detail.

Where do you work? What do you do? How quickly have you advanced? Do you have any leadership? What are your great achievements? Do you have notable community service or extra curriculars? Which school did you graduate from?

All of these will play important roles in your evaluation.

From a pure GMAT perspective, the school list seems fair, but a profile is a LOT more than a GMAT!!!

And feel free to drop us a line for a more full-on Free Consultation: http://bit.ly/mbafcGC

I graduated from Birla Institute of Technology, Mesra with a CGPA of 6.55/10 and have a GMAT Score of 650. I also had a carrier left so I graduated a little late this year while traditionally we graduate in June but I graduated in October.

• My Internships are as follows:

Tata Steel Ltd. - Vocational Trainee (India - 2 months)

• I worked in the Mills & Utilities Electrical Maintenance Department and my project was based on Fiber Optic Cables in the Energy management Centre.
• It was more of an Industrial Exposure.

Thales - Reporting Officer (Doha, Qatar - 1 month)

• Provide consolidated status reporting to the PMO team.
• Build project reports in coordination with the different areas of the project.
• Consolidate reports for different meetings and prepare Minutes as required.
• Analyze previous status reports and identify trends so as to improve risk reporting.

Amzaad Technologies - Technical Consultant (Doha, Qatar - 5 months)


• My extra curricular include:
Events Coordinator
Conducted various workshops on topics like Machine Learning, Learn to Code in C, Data Structures for all etc.
Senior Technical Adviser of IEEE Students' Chapter Club
Created a web portal for the students of my college that provided practice questions for various competitive exams. The project was done under my mentorship and a couple of juniors were also involved.
Adventure Head at Sports & Adventure Club
Brainstormed ideas to get the college students to participate in sports and trips conducted and organized by our club.

• Volunteer Experience :
Publicity Team - Run the world Festival
"Run The World" is an initiative by The Youth Company(TYC), designed to encourage the youth of Qatar to lead an active, athletic and a healthy lifestyle. The role of the publicity team was to get as much crowd as possible and to engage them in these fun activities in order to induce personal development of the youth.
Management Trainee - Qatar Tennis Federation
It was a team effort wherein I had the opportunity to work along with a few others to manage the match fixtures of the Qatar ExxonMobil Open 2014.

Please evaluate my profile. And give me an honest opinion and suggestions on how my profile can be improved. THANKS :)

Thanks for the additional info.
Overall I feel like you have a pretty good profile for the schools you are aiming at. It will help both that you are not in tech and are a female candidate. I would say if you can show clear goals as well as make some sort of link/reasoning as to why you want to study finance based on your studies/internships you should have a good shot if you were to apply to your entire list.


So get started on those applications!
:)

Best,
