Hi there, wondering if you could give me a quick profile review and let me know what my chances would be at my target schools (particularly the ones higher in the list).

Background

Work experience: 6 Years in B2B Marketing - 2 in an agency environment running the agency's thought leadership and new business efforts, 1 in an early-stage SaaS startup, and 3 in a talent agency representing public speakers.

Extra curriculars: I was on the Philanthropy Committee, the Great Places to Work Committee (we managed and completed our application to be considered as one of the "Great Places to Work" in Canada) and the Summer Party Committee at my last job. I have also volunteered for the Canadian Foundation for AIDS Research and the Daily Bread Food Bank. In Undergrad, I was also selected to be included in our exchange program and spent my 3rd year of University studying in the Netherlands.

Undergrad school/major: Top 5 Canadian University - Double Major Political Science and Sociology

Other education/coursework: Completed a 1-year Postgraduate Certificate program at a local Community College in Strategic Relationship Marketing after graduating from Undergrad.

Race/nationality: Canadian / Caucasian

Sex: Male

Age at Matriculation:
31

Stats

GMAT Score: 690 (IR5 / Q39 / V45)

Undergrad GPA: 3.0 in Undergrad, 3.75 in my Postgraduate Certificate

MBA Info

Goal of MBA: I'd like to continue in Marketing, preferably in the fields of Technology, CPG and Pharma/Healthcare. I'd like to work either in Europe after graduating from my MBA or return home to Canada.

Target schools: Stretch - INSEAD, HEC Paris. Target - IE, ESADE. Safety - UCD Smurfit, EDHEC.

Some background on the location choices — my partner is a French citizen, and as such the UK is now officially off of my list after their talks of a "hard Brexit" due to the potential VISA and immigration issues. Ideally, I'd like to work in either continental Europe or Ireland for a few years after graduation to gain international experience before moving back to Canada.

If you could let me know what my chances would be at my Stretch and Target schools, I would really appreciate it.

Hello,
We believe you have a good shot for the target schools and therefore a well-researched and written application can do the work for you. However a question that’s likely to prop up is why you need an MBA since you are already doing well in the domain of your choice i.e. marketing. We think you would need some groundwork on that front.

As far as the stretch schools are concerned, for both INSEAD and HEC, you are just about average GMAT with an above average work profile since you have a well-diversified experience in your domain therefore it will be critical to project what different you bring to the table.
Work alone may not cut it for you at these schools therefore you either go higher on your GMAT or bring more depth to your ECs.

Kind Regards,
Team Taterways
