Hello,

I hugely appreciate your advice and wish all the best to Accepted.com.

I'd like a piece of advice on what European schools to choose and whether I seem to be able to get a scholarship from them, since the issue of finance is tough for almost everyone from the Russian province.

31 yr old, female, Russian.

degree Specialist in Accounting from a local Russian university (they did not calculate the GPA, but I believe it's about 4.0, since I always received highest grades at the exams)

5 yrs in Managerial Accounting, last position Head of MA Department, outlined and led an IT-project supporting management decisions and giving exact numbers about the current financial position of the company.

4 yrs in non-profit as Head of Business Information Department. Organise business events (exhibitions, seminars), liaise with local authorities, business community, other organisations.

simultaneously, 2 yrs of entrepreneurial experience, nothing outstanding, working solely, just lifting up my living standards.
I don't know whether to mention that in the CV.

Almost no international exposure, except e-mails:)

GMAT 690, M47 (79%), V 37 (81%)

My dream is IMD, as their approach transpires even through their website and suits me. (I have been always interested in psychology, as they seem to be.) Yet I know it's a big stretch for me.

What would you say?

i also consider dual degrees MBA-ACCA, MBA-CFA, but they seem to be not so popular.
How to choose among dual degrees, as schools offering them do not present in the rankings?

MaryMBA,

Your career background looks good, your nationality and gender help you stand out a bit, and your 690 GMAT is a solid one (and, yes, mention your entrepreneurial experience on your CV). So I think you do have a chance at IMD; just make sure you give them your best application: do it right, with good essays, excellent reco letters, etc. I wasn't clear on what your post-MBA goals are so it's hard for me to recommend specific schools, but given your numbers and profile, I think you'd be competitive at schools like Rotterdam (Erasmus), Cass, or SDA Bocconi to name a few. Regarding scholarships, I am not an expert in financial aid, so I can't help you there; you'll need to contact each school and ask. As for how to decide between joint-degree MBAs that are not ranked, I would ask them what companies hire their graduates: that will tell you a lot.

Good luck,
