Hi there!

I believe my profile is good enough for Stanford MSx and MIT SF, but I am not sure about 2-year programs, mainly because of 12+ years of work experience and age. Could you please evaluate my profile for HBS, GSB and Haas?

I am a 30-year old (turning 31 in May) Asian male (with Russian passport), currently working as a Vice Rector (in the US you call it Vice Chancellor or Vice President) in the major Russian university. Previously worked as a CIO at the large regional power utility company. A board member in the leading local techno park and venture fund. A lot of ECA and other accomplishments. Also, created a top selling survival video game (available on Steam).

Education: Specialist's degree (5-year full time) in Computer Science from the average Russian university. GPA: 3.74 out of 4.0. Officially enrolled at the age of 13, being the youngest student in the university records, and probably, one of the youngest students in Russian history. Was appointed as a professor there at the age of 18.

GMAT: expected to be somewhere between 700 and 720.

IELTS: 8.0.

Hi there,
Thanks for posting! Your profile and life story is interesting, which will help you be remembered, which is always a good thing. Good luck on the GMAT, and yes scoring in that range or above would be ideal no matter what. Regarding the MSx or SF at MIT, I think you would be a reasonable candidate (though even those are competitive and have amazing candidates, so nothing is a shoo-in). If considering anything part-time, traditional EMBA options would be something to consider, at a school such as Columbia perhaps, or Stern, or Haas. Re: full time 2 year programs, I wouldn't say it's impossible but it doesn't seem to match where you are at in your career quite as closely, so you'd of course need to make a strong case for it, and acceptance rates at the very top 2-year programs are extremely low, so that makes it an uphill battle.
Keep us posted on your timeline, and how the GMAT goes, and sign up for a free consultation for a more in-depth chat with one of our consultants, as well as brief resume review, at, if interested. And/or feel free to post back here. Good luck!
