Hey,

I am having a hard time to decide on the Universities best suited for my profile.
I would really appreciate your inputs. I am posting my details below:

Nationality: Indian
Age: 24
Qualification: B.com Honours, University of Delhi and Cleared CFA Level II, Cfa Institute USA
GMAT Score: 660 (Q48 V34), IR 7, AWA (not released-waiting for the result)
Undergrad Score: 78.63% (Considered First division)
Academic Scholarship:
1. Received one for my undergraduate studies.
2. Twice from the CFA Institute - Access Scholarship
High school score: 94.4%
Internship:
1. PepsiCo, India - Finance Department
2. Sabio Capital, an Investment management startup in India
Work Experience:
1. A fin-tech startup in Equity Research - 1 year 4 months - Held positions of responsibility (training of new employees)
2. A Knowledge Process Outsourcing company- 10 months - Corporate FInance - M&A Advisory services - worked on multiple deals

Extracurricular activities:
1. Represented state at the national level in declamation (oration basically, similar to debates) contest
2. Affiliation with Red Cross Society (NGO)
3. Organized various inter-college events as a part of the Debating Society and the Fine Arts Club in college

I intend to apply to European Universities. GMAT:660 - this bothers me but I chose to move on with this. Stockholm School of Economics is my first preference. Other universities that I will be applying to are - NHH Norway, BI Norwegian School of Economics, Lund University (School of Economics and Management), Rotterdam School of Management. Considering my profile and the low GMAT score, I have a few questions:
1. What are my chances of converting the above mentioned schools (esp. Stockholm School and NHH Norway)? Do I stand a chance to win a scholarship in any of these listed schools?
2. What other schools should I send an application to? Does it make sense for me to apply to St Gallen (Switzerland), Bocconi University (Italy), IE Spain, Frankfurt School (Germany), EADA Spain, Esade Spain or Essec (France)?
3. Do you think that my low GMAT score can be compensated with my academics? Do I still have a chance to fetch scholarship?

Hey TinaSethi,

To answer your questions:

1) I would apply in your situation. Give it a try!

2) You can always send your application to mentioned universities and your chances might be quite good (especially for Frankfurt School, EADA and Essec)

3) Nobody can give you a final answer on the scholarships. Best thing would
be that you directly ask the admissions department of the respective university

Best

Hello, congrats on the admission. My name is Kevin Giorgis and I am also admitted on the SIM program at St. Gallen.
Probably you disabled the PM.
We have a facebook group chat. What is your name on facebook? I will add you on the chat (you can add me on facebook directly if you don't wanna write it here)

Hi,
I have a doubt regarding the eligibility criteria. I have obtained a BS-MS degree in Mathematics form Indian Institute of Science Education and Research, Kolkata. It is a five year dual degree programme, which includes both Bachelor's degree and Master's degree. Am I eligible to apply for the SIM programme?


Try to go to this page (https://www.unisg.ch/en/studium/zulassu ... rstufe/sim) and then on "recognized degree with...". If that can't help, send an email to admissions@unisg.ch

Hope this can help
