Hi there ,

I am looking for a full-time MBA from Top 15-20 B-school

Please evaluate my profile

Experience : 13 years out of which last 9 years have been in leadership role and last 5 years in mid -management role for a large telecommunication company . Currently I head a vertical for an MNC telecom company with more than 400+ people.

I have worked in many projects and recently Worked on a sustainability project as well.
I have launched business and I travel extensively for my work within the country.
I received the brand ambassador award for Vodafone.
I have hands on experience in retail, business development , Profitability , people management.

Education :
Bachelors in computer application with GPA 3.5 ( as per 10 point scale)
Diploma in management consultancy from Institute of Management Consultants of India with GPA 3.5
( I do not have a strong GPA and my transcript doesn't look too good ). I definitely have a reason.
Certification in digital marketing.

why full time and why MBA

A break from work and dedicated focus on studies. To get exposure in a global environment
Why MBA: want to change the career track to consultancy.

[b]GMAT[/b : started the preparation and tentatively will sit for the exam in Sep end. Expecting nothing less than 650( will try for 700 )

Have a IELTS score of 7


Which schools would be suitable? . I have no limitations to only US. But Uk I am a bit sceptical looking at the overall post MBA career report.

Hi ED1316

Thank you for your post, and for sharing your profile. I would like to get a better understanding of the reasons behind your career change. Your background and experience can bring a lot to a cohort, but from the limited information i have on your profile, I foresee the following challenges (in no particular order):

1. While most U.S. universities have a range of years of experience between 0-14, most average at about 5 for FT MBAs.
2. You will require a strong GMAT (700+) for the schools you are targetting, mainly since you belong to an overrepresented body of applicants.
3. You also need to have a very compelling reason for pursuing an MBA and a reason why an MBA at this stage in your career makes sense. Some might recommend that you look at EMBA programs instead, and you need to have an answer for that as well.

If you are interested to continue the conversation, please feel free to reach out and coordinate a free consultation (contact details in signature).

Good luck!

Hi Guys,

Would appreciate if an expert can evaluate my profile:

-Indian with 3 years of Work Ex after 3 years of undergraduate BBA from Tier 2 University with 2.9 GPA (screwed up my first year, but had 3.4 and 3 in the subsequent years).
-Have worked with two startups with one of them being the biggest in the food delivery sector and was in their first batch of employees straight out of college, thus worked in various divisions and set up the hygiene that followed. Managed teams and was responsible for service delivery.
-Currently working with a retail management consulting company in managing their client accounts and developing business.
-Still need to take my GMAT, good extra curricular activities in college. Raised money for NGOs and worked with a local NGO to support, grow and preserve our city's green cover (all in college)
-Already applied for PR for Canada, hence want to settle there for sure.
-Looking to apply for Rotman, Schulich, Ivey, Queens and Degroote (co-op)

Any help regarding what more can I do to enhance my profile for these colleges, what should be my target score would be much appreciated.
