Hi

I belong to the indian IT male category. I took my GMAT in may 2016 and scored 690(V40,Q44).

My profile is as follows:
1) Total work experience of 5 years with a product based Japanese company in Bangalore as Software Engg. Got 3 promotions in 5 years.
2) Currently working onsite in Japan for approximately last 10 months
3) Current role includes negotiating with Japanese and Australian clients in Japan(working in strategic role, usually done by managers) for last 10 months
4) Studied in top 25 engineering colleges in India and got GPA 7.5
5) Got 86% in 10th standard and 84% in 12th standard

Extra curriculars:
1) Played cricket tournaments for company.
2) Played cricket at national level in Japan representing state team. The team was quite diverse with people from 5 different nationalities. Our aim was to promote cricket in Japan and had people from Japan playing in our team too.
3) Learnt N5 level Japanese. I am able to read, write and understand basic Japanese.
4) Worked for approx 2 years for different NGO's
5) Represent my team in office while discussing issues faced by team infront of higher management.

What are my chances in ISB, IIM's in india?
Can you suggest other good schools outside India?

Hey there!
Great to hear from you!

So from what I can see here, the most impressive thing in your profile is the great number of promotions you have in a short time.

B-school do tend to love candidates who have moved up fast.


Second, regarding your GMAT, if this is your first take, yes you should absolutely retake! You can probably do better and it makes a difference! http://admissionado.com/mba/to-retake-o ... n=mba_blog

You might also want to look through this article here: http://admissionado.com/mba/3-tips-for- ... n=mba_blog

With your current score, there are for sure some good schools you could get into. It's a biiit low for the ISB/IIMs, and well, hey if you can do better it's worth it!
Best,

Hey there,
Well I would suggest you start by looking at the Financial Times Global MBA rankings, as that is where you will find the ranked schools in Germany the Netherlands, and everywhere else. I should mention in passing that school is not cheaper in Germany really than it is in Canada, so I'm not sure why that should make a difference. But rather you can and should choose schools based on your goals - personal as well as professional. (Plus it also makes good sense to apply to somewhere in a country you want to live in after!).

Other than that your general rule of thumb will be that you will be competitive in schools about which your GMAT is 30 points above the average. So that's the point where I would start.

I hope you find this to be helpful!

Best,

Well with a 700 those are all good places to start Meaning your list is solid. For Canadian schools look at:
Rotman
Ivery
Schulich
Smith
York
McGill
Sauder

Those are more or less, the best known B-schools.

Best,
Jon

Thanks Jon for the inputs. Much needed .

But I am not sure of on 1 year management or 2 year courses. I am from a technical side but I am also planning to switch careers. Will one year courses help in this?

Also what if I score 730 , do I stand chances for scholarships in canada or singapore(NUS and Nanyang).

Hey,
Well to be honest, if you intend to switch industries usually a 2-year program will make that easier for you given the time and the opportunities to do internships. So given your goals it does make a bit more sense.


If you get a 730 you're good to try anywhere in Canada or Asia.

Best,
JF
