Profile evaluation request (2nd MBA, one year MBA, US schools)

Here's presenting yet another curious case of a voracious guy, who wants to step back, re-learn what he is doing and move to the next level of leadership role. Why walk when I can run and sprint.

Nationality: Indian
Male
Work Ex (7 yrs)

Post-MBA experience: (4 yrs) (Got some good stats and metrics to boost of)
- I am currently working as a Senior Product Manager in Series-B funded mobile first start-up solving a real world problem. Working directly with the CEO.
- Previously been a part of a $1.5 billion valuation start-up team as PM, reports to COO.
During MBA:
- Selected for International immersion. (1 month). Worked on $30m project.
Pre-MBA: (3yrs)
- As Software engineer -> Business Analyst worked for an IT major for world #1 Forex trading platform (client). Worked across 4 multi-national teams situated in New York, London, Singapore and Sydney.

Acads:
IIM (Top-5 in India) - 2.98/4
NIT (Comp Sc) (Top Institute in India) - 7.48/10
12th (No-1 college in State) - 77.4%
10th - 73.5%

Aptitude (Competitive exams, Scholarships)
- (National) Secured 99% percentile in CAT 2010. Top 1% out of 230,000 candidates
- (State) Awarded merit scholarship by State Government for academic excellence in IIM, 2012-13
- (Regional) Awarded Regional Merit Scholarship by Directorate of Technical Education for Bachelor in Engineering/Technology for academic excellence, 2004-08
- (State) 2nd highest marks in Physics in State among 100,000 candidates.
- (State) Secured State rank – 115 in AIEEE (now called JEE) 2004. 99.7% percentile in State.
- Certified Bloomberg Professional by completing Bloomberg Boot-camp Training Program

Leadership/Sports/Community
- Being the first batch of our institute, I was instrumental in setting up our IIM culture along with Director.
- Founded & presided over the working of Corporate Relations Cell and Entrepreneurship Cell.
- Conceptualized our grad school's flagship event, one of the biggest summit in West India.
- Worked as Rural immersion candidate in mulitple NGOs to undertake projects for uplifting socio-economic condition. Education being my forte.
- Prefect of my under-graduate college (NIT) , 2007-08
- Sports Secretary (NIT)
- Captain, Volleyball NIT Team.
- Captain, IIM Cricket team.
- Marathon runner.
- I played TT, Badminton and Football too in my college team

Score:
GRE - 318 (QA-167,VA-151). Planning to give again, let me see if I can improve it.

Recommendation options:
- IIM Director
- Chairperson, Faculty Member
- CEO
- Director of Product

Why one more MBA:

- I see every organization will be become a Technology company in the next 5 years, be it healthcare, education, finance or automotive given the way technology is evolving now-a-days. I am looking to break into this thriving eco-system (US/Silicon valley) and be ready for next level of leadership role. I believe an Tech focused MBA from a premium institute will help me to stand up to this.
- I was the first batch of a new IIM. It's now in it's 5th year. I learnt a lot during those 2 yrs, about setting up something new. Now I want to know, how to scale and grow. I want to experience a fully immersive program.
- As I said, I want to run. I want to be successful. Super successful.
- I have great story to tell. I think people will like it.

Target programs:

I am looking for one-year MBA or specialized masters course. US only.
Dream: MIT SDM, Cornell Tech MBA
I need some counselling on the selecting the right school for me.

Hi there -
Thanks for reaching out for a free evaluation. In lieu of writing a lengthy reply, I'd rather we connect via Skype/phone so we may have a real dialogue and you can ask me questions as I give you an assessment. Additionally, I will be able to offer you a much more robust assessment if I am able to ask you more questions. If doing a free consult via skype/phone interests you, please contact me directly at kathrynlucas@squareoneprep.com.

I look forward to hearing from and speaking with you soon. Thanks again for reaching out.
