abhaypratapsingh,

Not sure you gave me enough info to provide a useful review, but nothing you told me makes me think you're overreaching at INSEAD. Your international profile will help you, of course. But you will need plenty of leadership/impact stories, and hopefully you will have more than just professional ones to talk about.

Good luck,

hi Paul:

Here is my eloborate profile. Please help with expert advise.

I have 9 years of experience in IT with a Global Bank. Recently I have moved to business operations side of the bank and working as senior business analyst in corporate banking division. I have B. Tech degree from IT BHU from INDIA.

I have enough international exposure in following capacities:
a) Work Experience:
Have worked with virtual teams accross the Asia , Latin America , USA and UK.
Have on lacation work experience ( 3 years in INDIA, 6 months USA and 6 years in Singapore)
b) Family : My family is pretty much international. My wife is from Latin America. My mother in law from Britain.

c) Residence: I am an Indian staying singapore for last 6 years.

Professional experience & leadership:
I am have good growth in professional career. I have executed different roles over last 9 years Starting as developer , moving to Bussiness analysis and Project management. In my current role I moved from IT to business operations of global bank. I managed teams , quality, budget , risk and schedule as part my jo responsibbilities.

At this stage of career I strongly realize that to achieve my passion I need :

1) skills to grasp the organizational and competitive possibilities to use IT as the prime driver and enabler of business strategy.
2) to challenge my thinking, change my outlook and choose my future
3) networks of strong professionals which can be supportive throughout the professional and personal lives.
4) not just a postgraduate but a post-experience qualification
5) skills and knowledge, to make the transition to much higher level of responsibility.

I think a MBA will help me with above needs.

Initially I would like to seek more prestigious position with my currrent Employer (world largest Financial institution). Because of the excellent preparation of the basics MBA will have provided me, I will excel and climb up the corporate ladder. After excelling in all aspects of the defined contribution, I would like to start with consulting to Banks/Financial Institutions (especially in developing countries) to achieve exceptional level of accuracy in their Technology and Operations.

What do you think my chances with INSEAD , LBS , IMD , IESE and cambridge ?

Thanks.
Robin

abhaypratapsingh,

You certainly seem to have an international enough profile to appeal to INSEAD. If you were applying to U.S. schools I would express concern over extracurriculars/community but you aren't. Assuming your leadership and impact stories are strong enough and you can make your goals more focused and specific, you may well have a chance at INSEAD and LBS. I certainly wouldn't discourage you. By that token, IMD, IESE, and Cambridge look eminently doable for you.

Good luck,
