Hi Zolu,

Have you applied already for Sloan's R2 deadline in Jan or are you seeking a profile evaluation for the 2021 intake?
If you are still to apply, do share more info about yourself - what has your work ben about? what are your key achievements? why do you want an MBA? What have you done outside of work?
If you have applied already, then I have my fingers crossed.

Hi there,
You have a lot of leadership experiences, plus a strong personal story to tell. Both should hold you in good stead during the application process.
Your work experience seems aligned with the average 1.5 years experience at the program you are targeting. A 700+ GMAT score would help for sure.

All the best for your application

Hi Scarface,

I'm Chaya, a senior MBA consultant with ARINGO. Your profile in general seems suitable to an MBA - have I understood correctly that you have an interview to Sloan already? Would love more information so I can help.

Cheers!

I agree that your professional experience following college is a bit short, but Sloan can be flexible on this. Try volunteering for another project at work, and remember, establishing something new at your family business counts as much as anything. I think the fact that you are from a country from which few candidates apply can be a factor that will have an influence in your favor. What will be crucial for you is how you craft your career story - where are you going and what motivations inform that direction? If you'd like to speak more specifically about your changes and about how to craft your narrative after taking your GMAT, our CEO is happy to offer you a complimentary review of your CV. You can contact us here: https://www.aringo.com/mba-process-registration/

Best of luck!

Hi milad90,

Thank you for your post. I find your narrative really interesting, and welcome speaking with you further virtually "face-to-face".

A bit on your profile: I like the work experience you describe and would like to learn more about your contributions to the organizations you worked at. I would also like to know more about how are you going to leverage your experience at the startup to start your own venture? What is your venture about (what need will it meet)? Why do you require an MBA? Why now? How is an MBA going to help you get to your goal?

Given that your academics are lower than the school's average, I recommend a high GMAT score (720+). That said, while metrics are important and are a contributing factor toward the final decision, Sloan cares more about your high probability of future success.

If you are interested in a complimentary 30-min consultation to discuss your profile and goals and ways we can help you, please reach out.

Good luck!

Susan

I have been in this organization for 3 years and for 1 year I worked as an Investment Analyst in the same organization. before this job I was working at another 2 companies in Iran as a consultant. And before I move back to Iran (2015) I worked as a researcher, published a paper, etc for one year in Canada. I am the head of Women In Management club in the company and my hobbies are tennis, paragliding, travel, poker.

I am interested in applying to Sloan -round 1 2021 intake. My post MBA goal is to run a business in middle east.

Hi All,

I am new to GMAT Club and it already seems like such a welcoming and supportive community. I am planning to apply to Sloan for admission Fall 2021. Please let me know what other information you need from me, again thank you for taking the time to help me in the process!

Age Attending MBA: 31
CFA Charterholder
GMAT will take soon, however I have been struggling to get a score above 640--I just need to commit more to studying during the week
Undergrad degree from a top 20 school, 3.8 GPA
Undergrad internships: Corporate Reporting at Merrill Lynch, Emerging Market Trading at EM hedge fund, and Client Service at Goldman Sachs

Post Grad Job Experience: 3 yrs as an investment analyst at a top Boston financial firm with one promotion and committee member of social committee and women's group, 2.5 yrs as a senior investment analyst/investment consultant at a pension consulting firm. In this role I manage pension funds and 401k plans for institutional clients (brand names, municipals, religious institutions, hospitals) and meet with their board every few months. I basically am the portfolio manager over their assets--about $800m. Beyond my role on my team I also sit on our company's global ESG Committee--drove efforts to get firm to become a UN signatory, Head of Charity Committee and lead US volunteer efforts for the firm. I have also been an asset to the firm in terms of using my marketing and graphic design skills to re-structure the image of the firm on all platforms as well as work with senior leaders globally to implement the changes.

Involvement outside of workplace: I have been an alumni mentor for my undergrad's women in finance initiative for the past 3 years to encourage more female students to enter into the finance major--currently the school has 14% female representation, member of local ESG and sustainability groups, attend conferences and talks on my own related to sustainability.

I want to go for my MBA as a career change from working in financial markets to sustainability. I have always been interested in ESG, impact investing, and sustainability but have found I want to create a bigger impact than to promote an ESG fund to one of my client's corporate board--I want to start helping actual people who need resources to better themselves versus helping people who are already well off. I am interested in either food sustainability, supply chain sustainability or packaging sustainability or on a different spectrum working for the UN. I have tried applying for positions in such industries but it seems they all want someone with a grad degree, therefore I am particularly aiming for Sloan for it's sustainability certificate that is a part of the MBA program. After having attended a few sessions and met Sloan alumni, I feel this is the school for me--I found my "fit" if you will. Everyone just seems to want to make a big positive impact on the world. An area of concern for me in applying to such a prestigious program is I've done a few things here and there to help people inside and outside the workplace but I feel I didn't do anything super amazing like create my own non-profit or club. Kindly let me know if you think I would get into such a program.

Thanks!

Hi Wnguyen8!

Thanks for taking the time to share your details and your career goals. It's great that you did so much research to find your dream school - that will show through in the application. If you want to have a chance for schools like MIT, you will need to do a bit of work before the applications open a few months from now. For starters, the chances of qualifying for MIT with a 640 are going to be low, barring some really unique/impactful professional and volunteer experience (working with a consultant can help you to identify and highlight such experiences - I am sure you have some excellent stories from your mentorship program). You would need to lay the groundwork for this career change you want so as to prove that it's not just a nice idea you have, but something that you are serious about. Think about what kinds of activities you can undertake at work and beyond that will create facts on the ground supporting your interest in sustainability. If you are subject to shelter in place these days, there is no better time to take online courses in Sustainability and to study for your GMAT.

If you'd like ARINGO to have a closer review of your profile, please feel free to upload your CV here: https://www.aringo.com/mba-process-registration/ and our CEO will get in touch with you shortly.

Best of luck!

Hi,
Hope whoever reading this is doing good and finds themselves healthy.

Can someone review my profile and give some feedback ?I would greatly appreciate that.

Demography: Indian Male, 25
GMAT: Yet to take. Confident of getting atleast 740. Aiming for a 760.
GPA: 8.7/10(98 percentile); BE. Electrical and Electronics Engineering at Anna University
Work Experience: 4 years in Software Engineering(5 yrs at the time of matriculating). 2.5 years as a Software Engineer an Indian Saas based Company, 1.5 years as a Senior Software Engineer at a leading US based FinTech company.

Accomplishments at work:
- Initiated, designed, developed and delivered the idea of a new product that would automate the process at work - there by improving productivity of the team by more than 50%
- Took on a dumped product which had lost its credibility, re-designed it, re-engineered it, turned it around and delivered the new version 2.0 with enhanced capabilities. Also aggressively marketed the products to the stakeholders who had lost confidence on the product. The outcomes helped increase the credibility of the team and the product, which lead to our team being bestowed upon with some challenging and potential projects. The product saved the company a revenue of more than a million dollars USD.
- Was awarded the Org Champion award of the quarter for the above accomplishment.
- Took on a non-technical role which was a team of creative and innovative engineers to suggest and drive ideas related to workplace strategies.
- Was able to drive another product idea that would address the difficulties faced by the admin team and tried to find an creative and innovative solution; negotiated with multiple potential vendor partners to develop the product externally and was able to drive the deal to a closure, which was a win-win situation for both the parties involved. This saved the centre a lot of money in comparison to previous process and also saved several man-hours put into this tedious process.

Extracurriculars:
-Core Lead of the "Sustainability" wing of the Company's Social presence Org - Organise various webinars, sessions and talks on Sustainability in collaboration with various NGOs; Organised volunteer drives for the company with various NGO partners.
-Board Member of the "Tech for Good" wing of the Company's Social presence Org - Partnered with various NGOs in delivering technology solutions for various problems that would benefit the underprivileged students.
-Member of the Wellness Committee at the Company that runs various initiatives focused on employee wellness.
-Was the General Secretary of the Department of Electrical Engineering Student Association, and was successful in organising IEEE international conference, symposium, Project Expo etc.Also as a Secretary of the student body would collect feedback and concerns from the students and bring that to the College management's notice, thereby helping them with some potential solutions.
-Was the Student Placement Coordinator for the Department of Electrical Engineering and helped organise Campus placement drives, various placement training sessions for candidates etc.

Post MBA Goal:
I want to pivot to Product Management or Tech Consulting from an Engineering role and work for a top Software Tech company.

Do I stand a chance at MIT Sloan given that I come from a competitive highly overrepresented group.
I am considering these schools : Wharton, Kellogg, MIT Sloan, Haas, Ross, Tepper, UCLA. If possible please comment on my school selection.
Also should I apply this year R1 2020 or wait and apply the next year R1 2021?
Will there be any disadvantage if I apply in R2 2020?

Hi ajay94,
My name is Shimri Winters and I head the strategy team here at ARINGO.
Your profile sounds great
- Great academics at IIT very good GPA.
- Career progress sounds interesting. both consulting and in the current role now
- Extracurricular activities are always good. I hope you have some hobbies and not just work and educational experiences...
I would love to hear more about the clients you had in your previous role and current role (Especially non-Indian clients) and the type of services and products you and your company offer them but it sounds like there is meat here for some really good essays.

Your school wish list seems perfect (of course there are other schools to consider too, and once we know your GMAT we can think do we need to add safer schools or can go with this list), and if you do score a ~750, and write kick-ass applications, you stand a fantastic shot!
Happy to go over your CV in great detail (as always I am on shimriw@ARINGO.com), but let's do this once you have taken the GMAT and scored the best possible score you can (your GRE score won't be enough for any of the top schools...)
GOOD LUCK!
Shimri

Built business cases for large-scale, long-term irrigation projects worth tens of millions of dollars in investments. Approved and currently being rolled out.

Start learning about industrial planning and focus initially on establishing better planning tools to maximize profits in our bioenergy business. Develop optimization tool that allows us to simulate different business scenarios, factoring in dozens of variables from around our business chain, and finding optimal profit scenarios.
Fifth year, now responsible for the long-term operational planning of our bioenergy, sugar and ethanol businesses. Constantly in contact with stakeholders up and down the business chain to ensure the feasibility and profitability of our commercial plans.
Internship (2013)
Internship semester abroad in London, doing macroeconomic research on BRICs for a large German market news firm.

Hi brasilianboi

Thanks for providing so much information about results you have gotten and the leadership you have demonstrated. The answer is yes, given your strong stats and profile, I think you would be a strong candidate to just about any business school.

I am a bit curious about your school selection. Looks like you are focusing on European schools and 2 US schools with strong energy programs that have a decent international brand?

I think if i were you I would focus more on the top 5 US schools because those brands you can carry to Europe more so than the reverse. Specifically, I think you should apply to HBS, Stanford. Sloan is a short application and Duke could be a back up.

Are any of these European programs focused on energy? The only one I know of for that is RSM and it would be great to arrange a semester abroad there but for sure don't want to go there.

Hi MBAPrepCoach,

Thank you so much for your detailed response.

You are absolutely right about why I chose those US schools. As for the European schools, I don't believe any of them have as strong of a focus on the energy sector, but carry name recognition globally. Honestly, I haven't really considered more top 5 US schools because I didn't think I had very good chances there.

I am currently leaning more strongly towards Europe versus the US because the programs there are generally cheaper and shorter. I also have a european citizenship, so that might help with the job search after the program. Additionally, my girlfriend and I would ideally like to go together for this endeavor. She is applying to masters programs in some of the same cities I am applying, and not a lot of US schools are in cities with multiple colleges. Duke is one of the exceptions where she's interested in the same school as me. She is also a European citizen, so if things didn't work out for one of us, the other could tag along and work there. The UK also allows for spouses of students to work there, whereas the US has very strict policies regarding that situation. We'd definitely be willing be flexible if that allows for an MBA at HBS or Stanford, though.

Best regards,
