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.
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?
Should I retake GMAT and aim for higher score?

Thanks a lot :)

I suggest with your work experience in Japan that you look to build on your knowledge in this part of the world by looking at top programs in Asia also. Here's a link to the top 10 business schools in Asia: https://www.topmba.com/mba-programs/top ... fic-201415 The avg GMAT for INSEAD Singapore was 705 so you are a bit shy there- and your chances overall would improve with even just a slightly higher GMAT so consider working on that also. I think the same advice holds for your chances with ISB and IIM. Leveraging your experience and language skills in Japan could be a differentiator for you!
Thanks a lot :)

Thanks a lot for the reply.
I am considering HKUST in Asia. I think NTU and NUS would be little tough.
