Brief: Indian, Male, 31 years, Engineer, and an MBA from top 15 Indian B school

Work experience: Corporate Banking (6 years); IT (1 year, pre Indian MBA)

Current Designation: Associate Director (have been working for a startup bank since 2 years before it started operations)

GMAT: 720 (Q50, V37, IR8, AWA awaited)

Bschools of interest: Kellogg, Cornell, INSEAD, Cambridge university (all one year programs)

Additional info:
1. Have won several highly visible national corporate competitions
2. Already a certified CFA and an FRM
3. I teach finance subjects to undergraduate students on weekends as a hobby
4. Have written business plans for several start-ups and got funding for one of them
5. Have grown from Software Engr -> Associate -> Manager -> Senior Manager -> Chief Manager -> Associate Director in 7 years of my career
6. My family runs a school for underprivileged children - i will meaningfully contribute starting this year.

Concerns:
1. Is my GMAT score ok? I can maybe add another 20-30 points max, if my mock scores are any representative. Are the Bschools I mentioned within reach?
2. While I know I will have to detail my essays really well to explain the reason for 2nd MBA, I think I will be able to manage that. Any inputs here are welcome.
3. Any particular area I need to work upon?

Hi shailabh, thanks for reaching out for a profile evaluation! I will answer your questions below in blue.
Work experience: Corporate Banking (6 years); IT (1 year, pre Indian MBA)The banking experience will help you stand out some in this pool.

Current Designation: Associate Director (have been working for a startup bank since 2 years before it started operations)

GMAT: 720 (Q50, V37, IR8, AWA awaited)This is a GMAT on the cusp... could be a bit stronger overall- with improvement mostly on verbal- but will get you looks at all but possibly Kellogg

Bschools of interest: Kellogg, Cornell, INSEAD, Cambridge university (all one year programs)

Additional info:
1. Have won several highly visible national corporate competitions
2. Already a certified CFA and an FRMHelpful!
3. I teach finance subjects to undergraduate students on weekends as a hobby Also impressive
4. Have written business plans for several start-ups and got funding for one of themdefinitely elaborate on this in some way in the application as it will set you apart also.
5. Have grown from Software Engr -> Associate -> Manager -> Senior Manager -> Chief Manager -> Associate Director in 7 years of my career good progression
6. My family runs a school for underprivileged children - i will meaningfully contribute starting this year.

Concerns:
1. Is my GMAT score ok? I can maybe add another 20-30 points max, if my mock scores are any representative. Are the Bschools I mentioned within reach?All but Kellogg will be in reach on current score. But what is your undergrad gpa and school as this plays into this as well. If your gpa in undergrad is low that will hurt you a lot with this score as is.
2. While I know I will have to detail my essays really well to explain the reason for 2nd MBA, I think I will be able to manage that. Any inputs here are welcome. Why do you want a second MBA? what do you hope to gain?
3. Any particular area I need to work upon?
Work on your why- and know the schools and what they offer.
I think you are at the upper range of work experience for Kellogg so that may be difficult. NYU has a new one year program in tech MBA and that might be one to look at also. We would be glad to speak to you more about your profile if you reach out for a free consult to this link:https://stratusadmissionscounseling.com/admissions/business-school-admissions-consulting-gmat-club-visitor/
