You have strong academics, with international exposure. You have good ECs and you have also contributed to society by working with NGO. To be frank, it is too much technical information in your work ex which needs to be translated into transferable skills. Would love to hear more from you.

Hi,
I want to apply for NUS and INSEAD MBA. Kindly evaluate my profile for the same.
Personal info: I am 27 years old, female, engineer
Educational qualification:
B-Tech in Electrical & Electronics engineering from NIT Jamshedpur with CGPA 9.2
XIIth: 86% (Science background)
Xth: 94%
Aiming for GMAT scrore >=730
Work-ex: I have been working in JSW Steel Vijaynagar unit in Total Quality Management department from past 3.5 years. I am in the core TQM team and was instrumental in driving the TQM implementation in the organization under the leadership of TQM Head, Vice President, who is also my reporting manager. We, as an organization challenged the much coveted Deming Prize in the year 2018 and got the same. During this entire Deming journey, I had a great opportunity to interact with Japanese TQM Gurus who were also the consultant for the Deming journey. Right now I am instrumental in driving the TQM implementation in JSW Energy unit. Apart from this, I look after the capability building section of TQM department and under this have covered 7500 employees under our various training programs. I am also a certified Lead auditor of ISO 9001:2015, 14001, and 45001. I have been trained in Advanced Statistics as well and is an in-house trainer for tools such as Regression analysis and Design of Experiments.
Extra-curricular: I have been trained in the classical dance form Kathak for 9 years. In college, I held the post of Class Representative of Electrical and Electronics engineering batch. I was a member of the Fine arts club and cultural and dramatics society of my college. I also held the post of Joint General Secretary of Fine Arts club and the Vice President of Girls batch. Moreover, I was in the core team of Corporate Affairs which was instrumental in raising funds for organizing the techfest of our college. I was also a faculty at Sankalp, which is a registered NGO of NIT Jamshedpur and taught children over there. We, as a team, setup schools and learning centers for underprivileged children in nearby areas.


Hi Shantanu,
Thanks for your reply. My work-ex can be put together like this. My organization was heading towards quality management in the processes and for that it challenged the Deming prize which is the most coveted Japanese award for quality. It took 3 years for the company to streamline itself to various aspects of TQM fundamentals and I was given the responsibility to drive TQM implementation in 4 departments put together having the joint manpower of 900 people. At an early age in my career, I got an opportunity to showcase my leadership and managerial skills since I was responsible for TQM implementation in these 4 departments and was accountable in front of Top management of the organization for the same. For that I used to work in teams which comprised of people from all these departments along with their HODs for understanding their functions and streamline their working in line with TQM philosophy. I had the theoretical knowledge of TQM aspects and the department people had the process knowledge. Together we used to streamline the process in TQM way. For this, I gave them the training on Policy management, Daily management and Employee engagement along with the usage of Basic problem solving tools and Advanced Statistical tools. The Japanese consultants used to visit regularly during these 3 years for this purpose of following the TQM way and whatever insights were given by them, I had to implement that in these 4 departments along with the HODs and the department people. The same changes had to be showcases to these consultants in their next visit. This is how our organization got streamlined the TQM way and I am glad I played a crucial role in this journey.
As far as Capability building section is concerned, I was given the target of covering 7500 employees under the training of Basic problem solving tools. This required a lot of coordination with the departments along with mapping the trainers. I myself was a trainer for this program.
I hope this helps in evaluating my profile further.

Surabhi59,

To summarise:
- responsible to drive TQM implementation in 4 departments, with joint manpower of 900 people
- Trained 7500 employees on Basic problem solving tools
- I have been trained in the classical dance form Kathak for 9 years
- I held the post of Class Representative of Electrical and Electronics engineering batch
- member of the Fine arts club and cultural and dramatics society of my college
- Faculty at Sankalp, which is a registered NGO of NIT Jamshedpur

Score >730 would certainly make your case stronger. But remember diving deep into technical stuff is a very common mistake by applicants. I recently did a ding analysis of Indian Male candidate with a score of 730, family business. Looking at high level, his profile was superb but when it comes to story telling and writing essays there was too much technical information floating everywhere.

Hope this helped.

Cheers!

You didn't mention anything about your post MBA goals, where you want to work after MBA, any outstanding achievements in educational/professional career, and why you need MBA at this point in career. Unless you provide all important details of your profile, it would be difficult for experts to assess your chances.

Hello!

Requesting a profile evaluation please.

Background and nationality: Female, Indian

Undergrad Information:
Graduated with a 9.0 of 10 CGPA from a non-IIT college in India.
I topped my university in my first year of Information Science branch beating around 2500 students and securing a maximum grade of S in 11/12 subjects. As a result of this I got a merit seat in Computer Science and then went onto complete the remaining 3 years of my undergrad as a computer science student.
(Information Science and Computer Science are essentially the same branches in India with almost the same curriculum - Computer Science is slightly on the tougher side)
I interned with a local IT company in my second year of engineering.
I was an active volunteer for 1.5 years at a well known NGO - I taught Math and Science to the students of Grade 8, 9 and 10.
An active volunteer at college cultural events too throughout my undergrad.

GMAT: 700 (Q47, V40) - I really need help deducing if this is sufficient to get me through NUS and INSEAD Singapore!

Work experience and leadership:
In my last semester of undergrad - I interned for 6 months with a Fortune 100 US company and landed a job with them. Been working with them for the past 4 years in the capacity of a software developer.
I was promoted to Senior Associate in my second year and to Manager in my third year with them.
I lead the Scrum/Agile process for the team and am always the talking point when it comes to interacting with the US counterparts.
I am very well known throughout the global team to be able to multi-manage and communicate effortlessly. I usually lead all the team calls and am always depended most upon to manage the team dynamics.
I am also known to be extremely creative and won the best creative team award for my team at one of our Global events.
I am active member with the firm's Toastmasters club and have served on its club officers group for a year (as a Vice President of PR and as Club Secretary)
I have participated in public speaking competitions(won second place at Division level), hosted events(hosted the area and Division events in my city), mentored folks (mainly involves honing their public speaking and leadership skills by providing constructive feedback/evaluations for every project/level they complete and guiding them structure and prepare their speeches) all over my city. I mentor about 25 people within my home club. I have completed the first level of toastmasters international and am currently in the advanced level. I have been recognized with a special award for my exemplary contribution to Toastmasters as a mentor and as a fellow toastmaster.

Colleges I aim for are INSEAD and NUS Singapore.

All suggestions will be much appreciated. Many Thanks!

HI Mon16,

I like your profile and I believe you have a fair chance at NUS. INSEAD will be tough with no international experience and an average GMAT score.

In terms of your work experience, I'd have liked to see more description about what you have achieved so far and teh impact you have made on your team/department/organization. I will have to make an assumption reading the above description that you have the right attitude to take up initiatives, have great interpersonal skills and have some good achievements that helped you get promoted every year. While writing the MBA applications, you will have to do a much better job bringing out all your achievements into the open and not leaving them for anyone to decipher (as I did :)). In terms of goals, if its product management, then that should be okay.

My suggestion is to present your story well, with a focus on achievements and learnings. Feel free to reach out if you'd like to discuss.

Hi Neel,

Your work experience is on the lower side as compared to the class average of 6 years at NUS. In that case it will make sense to apply to NUS this year only if you have a stellar profile- both professional and/or extra-curricular. Even in that scenario, I will urge you to retake GMAT and bring it to a 700+ score.

If you plan to apply next year, you must also continue doing extra-curricular activities. SO far, what you have is all from college.

Thanks much for your detailed inputs Namita.

From a purely GMAT score viewpoint - is 700 a good score for an Indian Female Applicant for the NUS?

Hello!

Requesting a profile evaluation please.

Background and nationality: Female, Indian

Undergrad Information:
Graduated with a 9.0 of 10 CGPA from a non-IIT college in India.
I topped my university in my first year of Information Science branch beating around 2500 students and securing a maximum grade of S in 11/12 subjects. As a result of this I got a merit seat in Computer Science and then went onto complete the remaining 3 years of my undergrad as a computer science student.
(Information Science and Computer Science are essentially the same branches in India with almost the same curriculum - Computer Science is slightly on the tougher side)
I interned with a local IT company in my second year of engineering.
I was an active volunteer for 1.5 years at a well known NGO - I taught Math and Science to the students of Grade 8, 9 and 10.
An active volunteer at college cultural events too throughout my undergrad.

GMAT: 700 (Q47, V40) - I really need help deducing if this is sufficient to get me through NUS and INSEAD Singapore!

Work experience and leadership:
In my last semester of undergrad - I interned for 6 months with a Fortune 100 US company and landed a job with them. Been working with them for the past 4 years in the capacity of a software developer.
I was promoted to Senior Associate in my second year and to Manager in my third year with them.
I lead the Scrum/Agile process for the team and am always the talking point when it comes to interacting with the US counterparts.
I am very well known throughout the global team to be able to multi-manage and communicate effortlessly. I usually lead all the team calls and am always depended most upon to manage the team dynamics.
I am also known to be extremely creative and won the best creative team award for my team at one of our Global events.
I am active member with the firm's Toastmasters club and have served on its club officers group for a year (as a Vice President of PR and as Club Secretary)
I have participated in public speaking competitions(won second place at Division level), hosted events(hosted the area and Division events in my city), mentored folks (mainly involves honing their public speaking and leadership skills by providing constructive feedback/evaluations for every project/level they complete and guiding them structure and prepare their speeches) all over my city. I mentor about 25 people within my home club. I have completed the first level of toastmasters international and am currently in the advanced level. I have been recognized with a special award for my exemplary contribution to Toastmasters as a mentor and as a fellow toastmaster.

Colleges I aim for are INSEAD and NUS Singapore.

All suggestions will be much appreciated. Many Thanks!


HI Mon16,

I like your profile and I believe you have a fair chance at NUS. INSEAD will be tough with no international experience and an average GMAT score.

In terms of your work experience, I'd have liked to see more description about what you have achieved so far and teh impact you have made on your team/department/organization. I will have to make an assumption reading the above description that you have the right attitude to take up initiatives, have great interpersonal skills and have some good achievements that helped you get promoted every year. While writing the MBA applications, you will have to do a much better job bringing out all your achievements into the open and not leaving them for anyone to decipher (as I did :)). In terms of goals, if its product management, then that should be okay.

My suggestion is to present your story well, with a focus on achievements and learnings. Feel free to reach out if you'd like to discuss.

Look at the Decision tracker on this thread. Many Indians have got in with a 700 GMAT score. That said, your application should be stellar. If you were planning a GMAT retake, you should still go ahead. :)
