Hello,

Bio: Age 22, Male, Indian

Academics:
GMAT: 740 (Q50, V41)
Recently (2 months) graduated from top 15 private engineering college in India with a 8.5/10 GPA (Bachelor of Engineering: Civil Engineering)
12 Grade - 90.3%
10 Grade - 88%

Work experience:

Might be the main section where my whole profile lags in. I have no professional work experience as a full time employee in a company. But I do have many internships that I have done during my undergrad period ( both paid and non-paid). Plus I have even a family business (Architect and Consultancy, staff of 40 people) in Dubai which I have looked after a couple of times.
1st internship : In India's major construction company and involved in as structural and geological engineer for a $5 billion project for 4 months
2nd internship: Paid internship at a start up for 4 months
These are the major ones which i felt to share.
Family Business around 10 months of working in it both a entry level employ and also at managerial and site positions involving handling of material, work and labor on site.

Extra:-
Head of photography and video club in college. Head of design and a member of organizing team for the department.
Conducted many national level and state level fest and tech symposiums.
Volunteered and also at managerial position in 3 to 4 NGO'S involving conservation of nature, teach for India and social development workshops.
Conduct own personal workshop in the same areas as NGO's. Also take teaching classes for underprivileged during weekends and holidays.

Want to pursue MBA in consultancy, operations or HR. Location, tuition fees is not a problem for me but which universities to apply for and the chances of me getting in them are.

I hope my profile but in case any discrepancies, please let me know and I will clear them out at the earliest.

Really appreciate any thoughts and comments, thank you very much for your time!

I would urge you to evaluate whether this is the right time for you to do an MBA or not as you do not have any professional experience. From my own experience during MBA classes, a lot of the cases and problems discussed in courses relate to the situations incurred in the professional world. It can be hard to get full benefit of the learnings of MBA if you are unable to relate to a situation while the rest of the class speaks from its own professional experience. On the other hand you could try for some good B schools within India as you dont necessarily need work experience to join indian B schools such as IIMs or othe good private B schools.

Hello and thanks for your post.

You have excellent stats - your GMAT and GPA - so that is a good start.
However, admissions committees will also look at your work experience and your extracurriculars. And the average number of years of full time work experience is 5 years, so it's important that you have several years of work experience if you want to attend a top program. You can apply with fewer years, but if you do, you'll need to explain why now is the time for an MBA, and to illustrate that you have accomplished a great deal at work, which includes examples of leadership experience. I suggest waiting a few years, in order to gain important work experience. You can also use these years to continue making a difference outside of work.
You are smart to already be thinking ahead, and to consider ways to build a strong profile.

Good luck!

Congratulations for your score. Your profile is really amazing. You can talk to some of the Admission Consultants in India.
I would request you to can you please share how did you prepare for the Verbal part? Actually I am planning to give GMAT by next month and I am stuck at many areas. It will be great if you can elaborate your Study Pattern.
Thanks in advance!

mbaMissionMichael Thank you for replying in such a short time. My apologies for not getting back at the earliest due to a personal family issue.
How about masters program? Is masters program worth doing in management or go for the MBA after getting work experience?
And MiM shots at LSB, HEC Paris ? After the brexit issue, are the job opportunities still available or MiM will hold a value?
Another question I had in mind was, is it worth doing MBA after an MiM degree?

You have a good profile and have practical experience in serious projects. You can apply for serious projects, at least for the initial position you are obliged to accept, and then everything is in your hands. I wish you success!
