Thanks for sharing your profile. The two most important thing for you 1)Work Experience - you need to make sure you continue kicking butt at working and securing some strong examples where you individually were able to make an impact / drive results. Also sharing examples of strong interpersonal skill development will go a long way especially for an Indian applicant. 2)GMAT - you will need to hit your score targets so somewhere in the 740 -760 range would make you a legitimate candidate for the top 20 MBA programs.

Hi there,

you have such an interesting background. Thanks for sharing.

To answer your questions:

1. Please evaluate my candidature for top 20 US schools as well as top 5 schools in Europe.

If you do hit the target score 760 in the GMAT, you definitely have chances of admission to Top 20 US schools and Top 5 European Schools.

2. Please suggest areas where I can improve my profile over the next year before I apply to schools in September 2018.

- Try to get some international experience. This is especially important for European schools, and almost a must for INSEAD. It does not necessarily have to be professional experience. Schools such as INSEAD look for international ambition in their students.

- (As the other commenter said) Try to work on accomplishments that are attributable directly to you, and outstanding examples of leadership.

Good luck!

Really too early for evaluating your candidature. Without your GMAT score, and your work-accomplishments (presented in a well shaped resume), you should really be focusing on them.
Feel free to send in your resume for a more detailed discussion.
