Hey dude,
Well it's not so much that application is "not in your favor with one year experience, but rather that with 5 years experience being the average for an MBA, ad seven for Indian applicants it makes no sense whatsoever for you to entertain the idea of doing an MBA at this point. Rather you should be planning for three years in the future.

I think at this point, the question is more of: What can you do to improve your profile over the next years???

I would like to present you with a list of ideas, which should help you:

- Definitely do at least one if not real real volunteer works while you are working. the BEST possible volunteer work is anything that has to do with leadership or fundraising, so if you see those opportunities, jump on them!

- Make sure you do the best possible at work, taking any opportunities to lead, to get involved in social events, to advance.

- Likewise try and keep up your life! What I mean is that schools LOVE candidates who have a broad range of activities and interests.

- If you have any interest in entrepreneurship as a side project, it can be good to have that in your profile.

- If you have any interest in politics as a side project, it can be good to have that in your profile.

There are probably more things that I am not yet thinking about, but this is a very good place to start!

Best,
Jon

It will be hard to give you some real suggestions without you having taken the GMAT. I would pop back either after you have taken the GMAT or taken a few practice exams so you have a better picture of where you might land otherwise we would just be taking a shot in the dark. As stated above your work experience will be a problem as there is not much of signal to schools of your career potential yet so some more work experience would be in your favor. I understand you are asking where you could land with your current profile, which is not a problem but update your question with your GMAT score and we can best help you out here with suggestions

Hi Parth,

You should check out Masters in management programs and MFA/MFin programs, which attract people with lesser work experience (yes, 0 experience onwards!!)

For a regular MBA, you should be considering its longer term impact on your professional profile. You may get into some b-school with a low GMAT, minimal work experience and a career break, but that program may not be good from an academic and career perspective.

An MBA is an investment of time and money (significant amount, esp. for an Indian, with the $$ to INR conversion). Getting into an MBA now may solve the purpose of well, completing your MBA. But it may not add much to your profile at all.
