Dear all

Hello, I would request you to kindly review my profile and suggest the further course of action as I am unsure of what to do.
I have just given my GMAT exam and do not know whether I have enough time to apply. This is a peak time for applying as most of the application deadlines are near. Thus, kindly suggest a course of Action.

GMAT Score (Oct 2018) - 710 (Q - 48, V - 40)
Currently working in Honda Cars India Ltd in Logistics Dept.
Graduation - B.Tech in ME (75% passing percentage overall) from GBPEC, Pauri (A State Govt. affiliated college)
12th Percentage - 89% (ICSE)
10th Percentage - 94% (ICSE)

Not much in extra-curricular activities as have participated only in School/College level.

I am targeting ISB and IIMs for and Executive MBA in Operations.
Is my target achievable with such less time remaining?
Is my target far fetched?
What else I can target with this profile and score?

Kindly guide me.

Helloshriyek

First thing- you have more than enough time to apply.
Deadlines for IIMC- 22 Oct, IIMA- 5 Nov, IIMB/ISB- Early to Mid Dec. So not sure why you are worried on the time front. Only IIMC is a slight worry, but still easily doable.
Coming to your chances, the stats are good, but almost no qualitative input from your end- nature of work, achievements, career progress, career goals nada.
You may have decent shot if you can tie in your past experience (read here) with realistic future goals (read here) in your written application.

Hi Shriyek,

You fall in the border for the programs you mention. There are some people with your GMAT score who've made it to these schools and some who have not. A lot depends on the nature of your work experience, and its quality.

Please feel free to get in touch using the "schedule a free profile evaluation call" link below if you want to discuss further.

Regards,
Karthik

Hello shriyek

No new qualitative info has been added except 50 months of work ex.
Regarding other 'options' being open for you- not sure what that means. Do you mean other schools? Then yes of course, several other schools are open for you as an option.
If you mean career options- then mostly a career path should be realistic and organic (mist link with your past and transferable skills) and must fit the profile of the B School. If you work in the ligistics function- SCM, Ops and Production/Manufacturing make the most sense in terms of industry but there are several roles that you could target say General Management, Business Development or even consulting to name a few. It would highly depend on your future plans.
