Based on your analysis, could you please let me know your feedback on the suitability of an MBA program for me?


• Age: 34
• Exp: 9 years and 8 months
• Industry:
o First 5 years in IT – Programmer to Project Manager
o Last 4+ years – Strategy Planning
o worked as senior manager in strategy planning group at one of the top Indian firms in IT services
o currently working as a general manager responsible for corporate development, m&a and strategy planning for a start-up IT products company

• Married with two kids

While I understand that there are lots of aspects (like career goal, aspirations etc), I would like to check with this forum whether pursuing MBA is a good investment to make at this point in life.

I checked the stats from few schools (on age and experience) and the results are not very promising.

Can you share what your short-term and long-term career goals are? I think that would give people a better idea of what programs to recommend to you.

Hi folks,

Well, I am planning to apply for the MiM programmes Sept 2017 intake, so which gives me approximately 18 months from now for me to complete my application. I want to know how good is my profile as of now and hence I request you to evaluate my profile and provide suggestions on the areas of development.

CGPA: 6.8/10 ... as a number this looks like a low cgpa.. But then in my university this is a first class CGPA. ( non -IIT top 20 engineering schools in India) Suggestion needed on this part.

GMAT- determined to get 700+ ... have been scoring 650+ in mock tests and I am planing to take my GMAT in JAN 2017. So this gives me 5 more months to prepare

Extra Curriculars

As of now Two Internships.. One as a client relations management intern in one of the top 4 insurance firms in India and the other one is a marketing Internship from one of the top three Tractor manufacturing firms in India. One more thing is some people say that it is good to have as many internships as possible during undergrads. But Some other people say that too many internships is looked down upon and a maximum of two internships is to be maintained. Suggestion needed on this part.

Secretary of The Wall Street Club (finance) club in my college.

Working on a online trading based paper along with a friend of mine which should be ready in another couple of months.

Apart from these

I have attended 3 Model united Nations conferences representing the delegations of various countries.
Quizzer during my school time and have won a lot of quiz competitions.
Business director of a web startup which failed after one year of decent reach though no profits were made.
Active member of the Entrepreneurship Development Club of my college
Have organised a lot of events which includes a Technical workshop which was attended by over 1000 Engineering students from all over the country.

Hereby I request you to kindly evaluate my profile assuming that I score a 700 in my GMAT and a overall cgpa of 7.2/10 by the time I start applying.

My target schools in the order of preference

1. LBS
2.Michigan Ross MiM - first intake Sept 2014.
3. Duke Fuqua - MMS FOB
5. HEC
7. Rotterdam School of Management
8. Hult Business School

Thanks in Advance.

To add that this website is helping a lot of students these days. The best educational forums I have ever seen. Keep going.
