Hi All,

After a bit of a profile evaluation to see which B-schools I may be able to get into at this stage - Top US/UK/European preferred!

-New Zealand national
-4 years corporate exp.
-3 years consulting exp. (IBM New Zealand & a boutique MC firm in Sydney, Australia).
-Finance undergrad at a NZ university(3.75/4 GPA).
-Currently studying towards my Masters of International Business at The University of Sydney, which I will complete prior to MBA starting.
-Lived in China for a year to learn to speak mandarin (needs a bit of brushing up now though!).
-Studied in Hong Kong for an exchange semester.
-Sitting GMAT shortly, but official GMAT tests put me at around 700 (Q47, V40, IR8) - I'll re-sit if anything less than 700.

Thanks in advanced!

Hey Scotty!

You have a good profile and with an equally good GMAT (read 700+), you can aim any of the schools you want.

We would, however, love to know more about your career goals and detailed current profile.

Please feel free to drop in a mail at the address below and we will surely assist you. That's what we do!

Cheers!

Hey there,
I’d love to help you out but without more info it’s gonna be hard. Most importantly: 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.
Best,
Jon

Thanks Jon,

At work I'm at Assistant Manager Level (Just below "Engagement Manager" in a typical consulting structure), I started as a 1 year intern at IBM, moved to consultant role for 1.5 years, moved city and did some project management contract work for 1/2 year, and now have moved on to a smaller consulting firm as an Assistant Manager.
Leadership at work has revolved around project team management.
Great achievements could include: Dean's list for undergrad, coming from a background of single-parent with no previous university education and getting my degree, travelling to China with limited knowledge of Mandarin to learn it.
Extra curricular: I'm on the committee of a Australia/China youth organisation, held career (IBM specific) talks with university students while there, helped run community "hack-a-thon" type activities, apart from that nothing major I can think of at the moment.
Undergrad College: Massey University
Postgrad (To be completed): The University of Sydney

Hope this helps for a quick background.

I'm still just starting research, so I want to get a bit more sorted in my head around timelines etc before I make any further moves, but I'll drop a line when I'm ready.

So one question that I and I think schools will have is why do you need the MBA if you are just now finishing up the Masters in International Business? What say you to that one? I think if you can hit that GMAT score you could be attractive in US/UK/European schools but you would need to address why what you just did is not enough. I would use this spring while you are in earlier stages to reach out to schools via web chats and webinars and also reach out to student ambassadors to ask questions. With 7 yrs of work experience, I think you want to try to be in the hunt this upcoming R1 as for full time MBA programs you are just past the prime number of years of work experience and I don't see value in waiting another year. Use the time now to do your due diligence on some programs so that you are ready to go with applications this summer to hit the R1 cycle.
Thanks in advanced!

You have a good profile as is so your GMAT and the execution of the rest of your application will be key for you. If you net a score above 700+you should be in good shape
