Hi

Below is my profile. Please evaluate it and provide feedbacks:

Work : I currently work in EXL, an analytics consulting company as a project manager. I recently got promoted to the managerial position. My work profile so far has been developing strategies for a US retail client to combat credit card fraud in stores and on-line.
Bachelor : B.Tech - IIT Roorkee, 2015 batch
10th / 12th : 90%+ CBSE
GMAT : 710

My experience has been in data analytics consulting. I have 4+ years of work experience. I want to move from analytics consulting to management consulting. I am not sure if this is a right expectation from an MBA. Can someone please guide me here to proceed with my career.

ankit7agarwal, a few thoughts on your profile and plan:
  1. The academic pedigree is good, given the IIT brand. How was the GMAT score? Precisely because of that pedigree however, the GMAT could be a bit of a sore point. That would be further accentuated by the point that GMAT is also a yardstick management consulting firms look at, while recruiting. Any plans for a retake?
  2. Your work and EXL brand sounds decent. With 4 years under your belt (?), it would be good to understand achievements/impact. Analytics is fairly contextual so make sure you leverage that well and think through your post-MBA plans in a deeper manner. Management Consulting is definitely feasible, but is that the only thing?
  3. You haven't mentioned anything on the ECs front. This is why ECs matter in your MBA application. Anything during and after college on this front?
  4. Any international travel can be a plus, if you have had that.

Hope this helps some.

Cheers,

Hi Mayur,

You can start your thread for your profile evaluation.
Your profile is good- depends upon which schools you are planning to apply to because a 650 GMAT would be low for many MBA programs.
There's a quite a number of merchant navy guys who apply for MBA every year. As you compete directly with them, it would be important to know your achievements and impact you have had in improving your company's/ client' business. With this in mind your resume and essays should be very strong.

Extra curricular actvities are valued in the admissions process, and it would be important to know how involved you are in these, specifically what you have done at the Lion's club
