Hi @pockyupNose... I can only imagine the meaning here... some things perhaps better left unknown! Nevertheless-
will proceed to give my thoughts with your profile!

Background:
Asian, 28, Male
Nursing
GMAT - TBD This TBD is a big one...as the Nursing background is a bit off the main path- which could be good depending on how you present this- and in light of your goals- but doubtful you'd see them digging down too low on the GMAT here so I'd try to stay at or above average here.

good leadership in this.

The what you want to do post MBA matters- I'd review the recruiting companies and the roles you are likely to seek post MBA and make sure they are selling- so to speak what you want to buy. If you can make the case that you want to leverage your boots on the ground knowledge of healthcare and now want to move to setting strategy and look for a strategic planning role of some type- whether in pharma or from a consulting perspective- you may be able to get traction from that scenario. If you want to reach out to us for a free consult to better understand how we can help- you can do so at this link: https://stratusadmissionscounseling.com ... b-visitor/ and here's a great article by one of our counselors on how the MBA can help in your healthcare career! https://stratusadmissionscounseling.com/free-consult/
I look forward to your responses. :)

thank you.

Very strong international exposure also- I don't the GMAT or other stats but if you are in line with their averages I think you could have a strong application here. Keep in mind that with the shorter duration you really need to know what you want to do post MBA so be as specific as you can when answering questions about your career goals and how INSEAD can help you reach them.

Hi everyone,

I would also like to have my profile evaluated. I am planning to apply for the Jan/Sep intake at INSEAD (not sure which right now).

Nationality: Brazilian/German
Age: 26
Gender: Male

Background:
I was born in Brazil, where I went to a swiss school. In 2010 I moved to Germany for my studies, where I have been living ever since.

GMAT: 760 (50Q, 44V, 5IR - might this last one be a problem?)

Education:
B.Sc. (2.8 GPA) and M.Sc. (3.4 GPA) in Aerospace Engineering at the Technical University of Munich

Work Experience:
Management Consultant, currently 14 months: This position allowed me to take part in various projects in Germany and Austria, such as analyzing customer companies with respect to their strategy, processes, structure, project management and employees and discovering potentials to increase their performance. I also had the chance to lead a small consulting project, which gave me a high degree of responsibility and freedom to make operational and strategic choices concerning the project together with the customer. The project team consisted of myself and an intern.

Languages:
Portuguese (mother language)
German (business fluent)
English (business fluent)
French (intermediary)
Spanish (intermediary)

Post MBA goals:
I would like to transition to strategy consulting or a strategic relevant management role in a technology company.

I would love to see your feedback on my profile.

Thanks in advance!

You have a good profile in the making, but lack work experience. Your GMAT score is excellent and I love it that you know so many languages. Your career seems to be going on the right track. However with just 14 months experience, you may be considered too young (inexperienced) to contribute meaningfully in class. I'd advise you to wait atleast another year before you apply.

Dear all,

Below you may find my profile and I would really appreciate if you could send me your feedback.

I intend to apply at INSEAD MBA (2019) and I am trying to build a strong profile since MBA is a big investment for me.
Post-MBA goal: I would like to pursue a career in strategy consulting in Europe.

Nationality:
Greek
Age: 25
Gender: Female
Education: B.Sc. in Marketing and Communication at Athens University of Economics and Business (Top B-school in my country) - GPA: 9.2/10 (3,7/4)- Top 2% of my class
GMAT: TBD

Work Experience (total 4.5 years) in Greece:
Marketing Intern -6 months- at one of the world's largest FMCG Companies
Assistant brand manager (15 months) at a multinational toy manufacturing company (with famous brands worldwide)
Assistant brand manager (18 months) & Assistant advertising manager (4 months-present) at one of the largest consumer electronics retailers in Europe
My goal is to get a promotion the following year, before my MBA.

All the above positions were requiring high interaction and cooperation with colleagues and partners from Europe & US, but I don't know if this is enough since INSEAD is too oriented at international experience.

Languages:
English (Professional working proficiency)
French (Limited working proficiency)
Greek (Native proficiency)
Spanish (Elementary proficiency)

Thank you in advance for your help.

Kind Regards,
Konstantina

The profile looks good and I think your goals also align with the School's USP. A valid GMAT score and your extracurricular/ leadership experiences would be also needed for a proper evaluation of the profile.

Also there are other ways in which working in a diverse culture can be brought out in your application. The international experience you have sounds good to me.

Hi Konstanatina,

You come across as a strong candidate for INSEAD. You have a great GPA and that should be followed with a 700+ GMAT score. Your work experience sounds interesting and differentiated although your post does not give the details about your achievements and impact. One of INSEAD's key criterion is leadership potential, so your work experience should reflect your leadership capabilities.
The other important criterion ofcourse is international exposure. If you are constantly working with international teams, then I don't see an issue here. You will have to demonstrate in your application that you can openly work with culturally different people and adapt to such environments.

Another important question for INSEAD is, what do you do outside of work? How have you developed yourself? You have not made a mention of your extracurricular pursuits, but I hope they are meaningful and substantial.

Now, you should get the GMAT out of the way, giving yourself enough room to retake in case your score is not great the first time around. INSEAD has some requirements related to the GMAT- do look up their website if you are not already aware of these.
