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.

Thanks!

In terms of what is in your favor- the Russian passport as many schools trying to increase their geographic diversity and this is an underrepresented area for most schools. I also see your strong leadership working for you. I think you would be potentially very competitive in the MSx program at Stanford and MIT Sloan Fellows program. See here for class profile on Sloan Fellows: http://mitsloan.mit.edu/fellows/fellows ... t/current/
In terms of full time MBA programs, the 12 years of work experience is going to put you outside of the "sweet spot" of most applicants. Getting that 720 or higher GMAT score is going to be a great help to you in making your case. Another option to consider is to look at the Columbia J term as you could be attractive there if you don't see yourself wanting to do an internship. But the question that you do still need to answer effectively for these programs is why you want this MBA at this point in your career and what are your goals post MBA. If you are looking to strengthen your leadership to continue in your current career path this makes these options I suggested more likely- if you are looking for a big career switch that could be a bit more difficult. If you'd like to learn more about how a consultant could help you present well in this process, go to this link for a free consult: http://stratusadmissionscounseling.com/ ... b-visitor/
Best wishes to you!



IELTS: 8.0.

Thanks!
