Hello everybody,
Firstly pardon me for requesting a profile evaluation without a gmat score.
I am an Indian, female aged 30 years. I was seeking suggestion whether my candidature would be accepted as I already have an MBA degree in HR.
Aim: to pursue 1 year MBA program
Target colleges: Insead, NUS,NTU,Johnson,Kellogg's, HKUST,LBS, oxford, ISB
Here is my career snapshot-
class X- 90.25 class XII- 87.5 Bachelor's - 8.23/10( Ist class honor's)(08-12) MBA (HR)- 75.5(15-17)
Professional exp- pre MBA administrator with an educational institution(2years)
Probationary officer with a nationalized bank(1year) selected through national level entrance exam), post MBA- mgmt trainee with a nationalized bank( 1 month), senior officer HR with a manufacturing MNC(7 months)Business development associate with an educational institution for an upcoming project ( currently)
Certifications & Publications:Rio+23 & Rio+22 UN WHS India Certification Program, Lean Six Sigma Green belt( KPMG), NULP( Practitioner), People analytic Certification from WSB, Managing Employee Performance ( University of Minnesota),coauthored a chapter on nanotechnology and co published 2 articles during my bachelor's degree tenure
Extracurricular activities: national semi- finalist at advocatus diaboli( XLRI ensemble, 15), finalist at case study competition,Manthan,XLRI ensemble' 15,dissertation on brexit and Indian corporate,CYTL'16.
I was elected as the departmental placement coordinator during my graduation. Also was an active member of the sponsorship and alumni networking team which was instrumental in arranging the cultural fest of the university ( one of the biggest in eastern India with a budget of around 15 lac). I had volunteered for an Indian NGO working for children and women education and was instrumental in executing a project on launching ' telecenter on wheels'.
I am planning to apply for an 1 year MBA in fall 2020. So it will be of great help for me to take the call if the following queries are answered:
1) whether my application would be considered as I already have an MBA degree in HR? Is this an accepted practice in the colleges which I intend to apply to?
2) what chances of selection do I stand based on my profile provided I score a competitive score in GMAT?
Thanks in advance for your time!!

HI Pather Panchali,

We'd need to understand your profile in more detail. How much work experience do you have in total, what are your work related achievements? What impact have you created on your organization? What are your career goals? why do you need an MBA?
There are a bunch of schools that do not permit a second MBA. But for all others, you will have to give convincing reasons for why a second MBA is important from a career standpoint.

Hello patherpachali,

Thanks for your query.

Your eligibility for a second MBA will depend on the criteria that each school has. Of course, there are a number of schools that do not prefer a second MBA. However, for the ones that do, we will need to focus on why you need an MBA at this point in your career and how the same syncs in with your larger career plan. You will need to appropriately answer the "Why second MBA" question to stand a good chance.

In order to offer you a more detailed evaluation, we request you to kindly share greater details of your professional experience, as well as your career goals.

Thanks.

All the best!

Consider the following points patherpachali:
  1. The overall profile arc looks interesting and uncommon. That however also means you'll have to do a lot more in articulating the rationale for your career choices. So make sure you are ready with a compelling pitch.
  2. Second MBA is becoming increasingly popular. Read here and here. Goes with the previous point - have a compelling rationale and always double check once with your target programs.
  3. Since there is time before you apply, make sure you work on the pitch as well as the profile. Check a specific offering here.

Hope this helps some.

Hi patherpachali,

Thank you for your post and for sharing your profile. Below, find my answers to your questions.


1) whether my application would be considered as I already have an MBA degree in HR? Is this an accepted practice in the colleges which I intend to apply to? Pursuing a second MBA can be acceptable especially if you can clearly identify the reason why you require a second MBA. This is where the qualitative portion of the application will be very important. The admissions teams will need to know that you have a clear objective.
2) what chances of selection do I stand based on my profile provided I score a competitive score in GMAT? You belong to an overrepresented body of applicants, so you may experience challenges. Your best bet is to apply to a number of schools (safety, target, and reach) to cover all your bases. Keep in mind that every application is unique and should be approached separately. You should also score 10-20 points above the average GMAT score for the target schools and have a compelling background story that speaks to your diverse experiences. Especially since you already hold an MBA, it will be paramount that you clearly articulate your reasoning behind a second MBA.

I hope this helps. If you are interested in continuing the conversation, please reach out and schedule a free consultation (contact details in signature).

Good luck!
