Hi all,

As a relatively new member of this fraternity, looking for some guidance on my profile suitability.

Kindly request you to evaluate my profile suitability for MBA (Finance) from top-B Schools. In brief, I am a CFA charter holder and MBA (Finance) major from an Indian University, with majority of work experience in the US Private Equity space.

Target Programs - Columbia, Stern, Duke, INSEAD and LBS (M-Fin.)

GMAT Score: 700 (9/18/13)
Quant: 49
Verbal: 36

Nationality - Indian
Chartered Financial Analyst - CFA, USA (2008-10)
MBA (Major - Finance) - NMIMS, Mumbai (Indian CGPA grade: 3.31/4.00)
Under-graduation: Bachelors of Engineering (Electronics) (Indian percentage: 74.4%, with distinction)

Work Experience:
Total: 6.5 years (primarily based out of India)
Most Recent (4 years 3 months): Working for a Indian arm of a mid-market New York based Private Equity firm as a Senior Analyst. Significant hands on experience at every stage of investment life cycle – from deal sourcing, execution to exit across diversified industry verticals. Roles and responsibilities spanning from Company Valuations, financial modeling , deal screening and Industry research as well as Portfolio Company Analyst. Extensive global exposure with multiple assignments completed related to deal diligence and Portfolio Company specific projects across United States and Canada.
Recognized as Analyst of the Year multiple times in my tenure.

Prior: (1 year 1 month): As part of a KPO firm, Investment Banking Analyst for a fortune-500 client focused on US Telecom, Media and technology markets.
Pre-MBA work-ex (10 months): As a software developer with one of the largest US based IT firm.

Reason for MBA (2nd) now: I wish to build upon my private equity work experience and education background (predominantly finance) to further my career in private equity space itself. While my primary role so far in private equity space has been concentrated towards deal analysis and portfolio company management, I wish to make a lateral shift towards fund raising, deal sourcing and deal execution in the short-term, and this is where a major in Finance from top universities will help me out. In addition, pursuing MBA from a top-notch university will primarily aid me most in pursuing more global opportunities in Private Equity space.

Thank you,

Make a good impact by using what you have to the best. You should write very expressive essays.
All in all a great profile, make the best use of it :)
