Hi, Hammad here. I got a 740 in GMAT and a 3.59/4.00 in B.E Mechanical. I did my final year project at my country's space agency and am the primary author of a conference paper. For my extra curriculars, I have been on leading positions in my university clubs. Currently working for over a year at an E&P company as a projects engineer, due to my performance I can get really good recommendation letters from company's top management. Kindly evaluate me for top US business schools.
Thankyou

Hello all,

Hope everyone is doing good. I would love to know your opinion about my profile for MIT Sloan

Country: India
GMAT Score: 740 (Q:50, V:40, IR:8, AWA:4)
Total Work Experience (in years): 6
Undergraduate Institution: IIT Kanpur (India)
Undergraduate GPA: 3.1/4
Post Grad GPA: 3.4/4

Other Qualification: Post Graduate Certificate in Liberal Arts (Young India Fellowship)

Awards: Mother Theresa Fellow ( Awarded to work in the social development sector)

Work Experience:
I am an engineer from IIT Kanpur, did Dual Degree in Civil Engineering and graduated in 2012. Post which I did a one year liberal arts fellowship and started working in development sector.
I worked for 2 years in sports for Development with Indian Football Foundation where I was responsible for developing the technical capabilities of 120 football coaches. Post this work I transitioned into a social business with Bengaluru Football Club where I was given the task of starting their soccer schools. I enrolled 600 students and earned a total revenue of $100,000 in the first year of Operations.

I was really excited about the impact I had created but was not satisfied with the scale. I realized that using Technology can help me amplify impact. Quit my job at Bengaluru FC, learnt coding and did two failed startups. After this stint I joined Digital Green ( a non-profit doing uber-pool kind of service to take farmers produce to the right market) as a Product Manager. I have been working here for the past 1.5 years and was promoted to Senior Manager, Biz Ops and strategy six months back.


Post MBA: I plan to start my own Tech based social enterprise. I am working on a few solutions which are based on using blockchain to help solve fund managements problems in the development sector.


Thank You!

Hi Hammad, you've got great GMAT / GPA stats, definitely fit well with Sloan's profile in that regard. The involvement with the space agency sounds interesting too. Do you only have one year of full-time experience? If so, I'd wait to apply til you've built up more experience and demonstrated more leadership. Average years of work experience for Sloan's class is just shy of 5 years.

Good luck!
Kate

Hi melbin101,

Definitely an interesting / less typical work background, but I think that's a positive overall. Especially since you can show an interest in social development and technology. I can see Sloan's program fitting well with your goals. Your GMAT score is great. I assume you're converting your GPA to a 4.0 scale? You won't need to on the application. But if it is 3.1, then that's a bit low for Sloan, so could be a challenge. Otherwise I think you've got a shot at Sloan. Make sure your passion for solving such problems comes through strongly in your materials and use the video statement to show the school your personality and what you'll contribute to the class.

Good luck!
Kate

3. Since my current work experience doesn't have a brand name, how much will it hurt me ? Can you only get into top 10 if you are working in MNCs / Fortune 500s ?
4. Will it help if I retake and try to improve my verbal score to take the overall score to 760-770 ?

Thank You for reading.

Hi MayBSchool,
From what I can see, you've got a really strong profile for Sloan's EMBA program. Great GPA + EA score. Your work experience is right in their target range (though slightly below their average) and the client/project exposure sounds really strong. The non-profit boards are a nice extra too. Have you contacted someone in the Sloan program? For the EMBA program, they are usually quite open to speaking with applicants, so I would be sure to reach out and speak with someone in admissions before you apply.
Best of luck, and feel free to reach out direct if you have other questions.
Kate
