Hello,

Please find a brief of my profile below. I thank you in anticipation for your help!

Age – 30 years Male, Nationality – Indian, planning to apply for Canadian citizenship if I end up in a good MBA program so that I can avoid H1B circus post graduation :-) (applying only for US universities)

Education: B.Tech & M.Tech in Mechanical Engineering/Energy Technology from one of the top 5 IITs in India (GPA – 3.6/4 as per WES assessment), MSc in Mechanical Engineering from one of the top 5 Canadian University (GPA – 3.8/4)

GMAT – 690 (Q51, V31, IR6), planning to apply only for safe schools during R1 2018, need to retake GMAT to cross 730 to be able to apply for target schools during R2.

WE: Total 5 years by next year (4 years in Canada and 1 year in India : 2.5 years in a top energy management consultancy firm which runs energy efficiency programs in North America, 1.5 years in other energy audit firms, and 1 year in a big oil). Two promotions in past 1.5 years in the current company.

Internships: 2 research interns during undergrad – 3 months in an European university and 3 months in SIEMENS in its energy research group)

Publications – Couple of publications in reputed journals (Electrochimica Acta, Journal of The Electrochemical Society)

Scholarships – 1 during undergrad, 3 during grad school (2 of them are pretty reputed)

Extra curricular and Community Services:
• Digitally teaching students for advanced math and engineering preparatory courses - requirement to register for professional engineering licensure in Canadian provinces. Helped 50+ students to successfully pass courses
• Mentor and registration presenter for a professional engineering regulatory body of a Canadian province
• Charity member for Christian Children Fund
• Member of the Bridges program at the International Centre during grad studies. Delivered presentations to improve cultural awareness for India in local schools, community organizations, and post-secondary classrooms
• Participated as a judge in various science fairs held in a Canadian city and motivated participating high school students for science and technology
• Conducted mock exams of IIT-JEE (entrance exam for B.Tech courses in IITs) in an Indian city for the first time. Created market and improved uptake in subsequent year by collaborating with local students, tutoring companies and merchants
• Acoustic guitarist and member of the choreography team during undergrad
• Led, designed and conducted various design events at the annual technical festival during undergrad
• Secured All India Rank 2nd in the engineering entrance mock exam conducted by Mastermind Classes (tutoring company operating across India)
• Passed the requirements in mental and physical development for 3rd KYU in the art of **** RYU KARATE DO

Post MBA Goal – Energy Consultancy/Trading/IB

I will be applying for MBA programs and universities that are reputed for energy. On that note, I will appreciate if somebody can please suggest few safe as well as target schools I could pursue based on my profile. I am targeting to matriculate by Fall 2019.

Hello gmatenthureturns

Decent profile on the work ex and extracurricular front.
International work ex further helps.
This GMAT is definitely challenging for an Indian.
Though you have been pretty detailed in sharing the info, shortlisting schools requires only to understand more qualitative details (versus a laundry list) such as Career progression, achievements at work (to the assess strength of the profile) and long term career goals and the need of an MBA (to assess the fit of the school)
As a generic advice, you must have already searched the schools good in the energy space, but for a more specific advice, one would need to understand your profile deeper (as mentioned above)
