Hey it would be great if someone could review my profile below:

Background:
- Indian, Male, 27
- Primary Education in the Middle East (CBSE), 12 years
- B.Tech in Computer Science for NIT Karnataka, CGPA: 5.9/10

Work Experience
- Total experience - 5 Years
- 2.5 years in an MNC as Big Data Consultant. Spent some time in Germany, Dubai, Gurgaon, and Bangalore at the client location. 1 promotion during that time.
- 2.5 years spent on my own startup as Head of Product and Growth. Launched an App, which ran for a while, but decided to shut it down.

GMAT: 1st attempt 660. ( About to give my 2nd attempt in a few days, mock score averages around 720 now)

Extracurriculars
- Volunteer with local organization for last 2 years
- Play Tennis and Football frequently

Goal
- Work in South East Asia
- Work as Product Manager (or an equivalent role) in a big firm/startup

Targets
- NUS, Nanyang
( I know I can't have only two target schools, I need help looking more options in the region)

Questions

1. Since I'm looking to work in S.E. Asia, can you suggest other good colleges in the region?.
2. I know my CGPA is low, and I'm hoping my next GMAT score + Work Ex + Essays can help offset this a little. Anything else that can be done?
3. Any other general advice for my profile would be great.

Thanks in advance!

Hi there,
Thanks for your post. Good luck on that GMAT prep, as that will DEFINITELY be important for you, especially given your past academic challenges. If needed, try a few times until you are satisfied. Would love to see you above the averages at your target schools for best chances ideally. Otherwise, I would emphasize your international experiences you have described here, really reflecting on what you learned from those experiences, what knowledge and perspective you gained and how it shaped you. And reflect upon what you learned via your startup as well.
I'm not clear on when you say you had your startup and shut it down, if you are currently employed or not... it can be challenging to apply from a place of unemployment, just fyi!!
Re: schools, I would roughly refer to the Financial Times Global MBA ranking for reference of what programs are considered reputable relatively and around the world, hope that helps! NUS & Nanyang are great, just really aim for a stellar GMAT !
