Hi There,

Based on what you describe, you come across as an effective professional, with good extra-curricular activities. I am not able to tell if you have international experience or not. Colleges like INSEAD are very particular that you have international experience at the time of application.

Other top tier colleges in the area that you mention could be a possibility provided you tick off the GMAT criteria (say about 710+ for top tier European programs). Beyond that, you need to take care to express yourself clearly in your application through your essays and resume. If you are able to do a good job of that, you should have a good application to the top programs in the area.

We will be ina better position to judge after you are done with your GMAT. Feel free to reach out to us through the link below to discuss further.

Regards,
Karthik

A few thoughts on your profile mskumarsajeesh:
  1. The work profile seems to interesting in that that seems to have taken you outside the country with a PSU. It is not clear however what kind of career progression you've achieved since that is always tricky to make happen at a faster rate in government sector. Think hard about how you'll show differentiation, despite the constraints you may have had.
  2. You've not mentioned anything between 2009-12. If that's a gap, that'll be something to reckon with as voluntary breaks can be fatal.
  3. The ECs, at least the way they are currently articulated, sound just about ok. You will have to elaborate on the impact, especially on that NGO front, to gain any benefit of it.
  4. 68% would be slightly above average I am guessing. The GMAT will become pretty important here on.
  5. For reasons mentioned here, we do not speculate on school suggestions. That being said, spread your net wider and make sure you take cognizance of potential hurdles.

Hope this helps some.

Cheers,

Hi mskumarsajeesh,

You have an excellent profile with a great career progression and extracurricular. Your NGO experience puts you in front to impress the adcom. Considering your consistent achievements in career are outstanding. Your academics are bit high compared to the class of the shortlisted schools above, great GMAT score can make it up for your academics. Based on your profile and the fact that you are an Indian male, you should target to add 20 or 30 points to class average GMAT score to compete with demographics to have a fair chance of getting an admit from the schools you have mentioned above. Overall, you have an equitable profile to fit into the schools mentioned with achieving a great GMAT score.

Hi mskumarsajeesh,

The European b-schools you have mentioned look for holistic profiles in applicants (just look at their essay line-ups). Given that academics, work experience, international motivation and leadership outside work are their top criteria, here's my take on your profile:
1. Acads- your UG GPA seems to be average. A higher GMAT score, 720 and beyond, would help. INSEAD wishes its applicants to have quant/ verbal score above the 70-75th percentile and an IR above 6. So, as you are yet to take GMAT, aim for a score better than this.

2. Work Experience- YOu say you have performed well. Based on some assumptions, I will add areas that could be highlighted to show superior work experience: being deputed abroad, which may not be common at all in your organization; earning promotions, which are hard to come by in a PSU; superior leadership ability by way of working with seniors and peers (normally its difficult to move the needle in government organizations).

3. International experience- you tick this box, but how long is your international duration and how have you grown personally/professionally due to this exposure?

4. Leadership outside work- this is best demonstrated when you are able to make an impact on others. You have mentioned your ECAs. Just to focus a little more on the NGO- exactly what do you do there, how crucial is your role and what have you achieved? Trekking and summiting show grit and maybe good leadership skills. Being a model, well, that's a good conversation starter.

In terms of advice for the following months- crack the GMAT quickly.
