Hi

I am male Indian Electrical Engineer. I did Electrical Engineering in year 2006. Then I worked for Petrochemical division of Reliance industries(Fortune 200 Company) at Nagothane Manufacturing division for 09 years as Electrical Maintenance/Project/Reliability Engineer. In July 2015, I joined SADARA Chemical Company( JV of Saudi Aramco & Dow chemicals) as Standardization Engineer at Jubail, Saudi Arabia. Total Experience of almost 13 years.
My date of birth: 11.01.1981
I also completed Post Graduate diploma in Operations management (distance learning).
I have also completed Six month long Young Leadership Management Program at IIM Kozikhode. This program was custom made for high potential candidates from Reliance.
I like analysis of data and I also like finance. Hence I am planning to pursue post-graduation course to work as Business Analyst or related filed where no plays an important role. My aim is to get job after completing course. I can pursue high studies in india or abroad.

Please find below my GMAT SCORE.

GMAT-710( Q49, V37, IR5, AWA-5)

Thanks.

andygupta21, consider the following points:
  1. The move from Reliance to international work is good. It will be good to understand your accomplishments and nature of work as a Standardization Engineer - do you manage teams etc?
  2. In general, MBA after 30 is pretty tricky. So make sure you choose your target schools well. In India, the 3 IIM one year programs might be ok to look at. You can also explore the Fellows programs.
  3. It will help to develop more clarity and granularity in your post-MBA plans. BA is a very broad term; usually also populated with far younger candidates. Research on what specific roles/designations/industries you'd be targeting - that clarity will be expected of someone like you a lot more than folks with a lot less experience.
  4. ECs matter too. Think about anything you may be able to share on this dimension.

Hope this helps some.

Cheers,

Thanks Manish for my profile evaluation.
a). I am heading a team of 5-6 engineers who basically catalogue materials used in Petrochemical plant and upload these details in SAP for procurement purpose.
b). I am targeting one year executive MBA in india or abroad with placement assistance.
c). I think I am more efficient when I work with numbers rather than theories. That's why I have thought for Business Analyst role. But your point is very true that this field is very wild open and full of professions ranging from young to experienced. here I really need your help to finalize filed of my interest as I understood now " We need to love you job to get better results".
d). I am active volunteer of SADARA Volunteering club at participated in various social causes as School bag initiate to poor children, Home renovation of old & poor citizens, beach cleaning activities.
Also I am member of Toastmasters international.

andygupta21, the leadership aspect sounds good; though the nature of work, the way you've described, could sound a bit underwhelming - make sure you put more thought there.

Not sure if you have this nomenclature confusion between EMBA and MBA for Executives? Most EMBAs don't tend to have formal placement assistance. Goal setting depends really on your career aspirations/plans and something very subjective with no one cookie cutter answer. Feel free to reach out to us directly for more discussion on that.

The ECs look pretty good - make sure you include those in your basic storyline.

Cheers,
