Profile evaluation - MBA in China  [#permalink]

New post 22 Nov 2018, 15:16
Hello, I am planning to apply to some MBA programs in China, although I am concerned that my current profile is a bit weak. I would like to ask for your advice before committing to moving forward with my applications. Also, I have not taken the GMAT yet, however I have a decent idea of what score I can achieve.

Age: 23

Full-time work experience: 0

Undergraduate: University of Toronto, Political Science (International Relations Stream), 3.01 GPA (3.40 for final 3 years, I had a rough first year) Graduated 06-2018
University of Toronto Study Abroad Exchange (Shanghai & Beijing, 05-2017) 3.7 GPA

Other education: Beijing Language and Culture University, 1 year language exchange (Current)

Languages: English (Native), French (Intermediate), Mandarin (Intermediate)

Extracurriculars:
1. Compliance Director, G7 Research Group (Current) 1 year
2. Country Specialist, BRICS Research Group (Current) 1 year
3. Lead Analyst, G20 Research Group (Current) 1.5 years
4. President, Project A Anime Club (2017-2018) 1 year
5. Vice President, Project A Anime Club (2016-2017) 1 year

GMAT: First diagnostic 690 (full exam in exam conditions, V:40 Q:44 IR:8), confident on a 700+ score, aiming for 750

Goals: I am planning to apply for the Tsinghua Global MBA Program as my first choice, and some other universities as backup, such as Renmin University, Beijing University, CEIBS. I am also hoping to stay in Beijing, where I currently am, however I would consider universities elsewhere in China such as Shanghai.

Your help and expertise is greatly appreciated, as I have been racking my head for days as to whether or not follow through with my applications once I write the GMAT. :please :please :please

Hi Frisbee68,

Thanks for reaching out.

I agree with the priority on GMAT and trying to cross the 700 mark -- especially getting your quant score up to the high 40s. Hopefully that is achievable!

Otherwise, I think you should apply when your application is at its best, and if you feel there are weak areas, then why rush? In particular, I'm concerned about your lack of full-time work, as the Tsinghua program says the average is 5 years work experience for its students.

You could certainly give it a shot if the GMAT goes well, but I think you would be more competitive once you had a few years of full-time work.

Best of luck,
Kate
