Hi friends,

Hope you all are doing fine.

I wanted to get some feedback / evaluation on my profile and get some inputs on which college to apply to.

1). Nationality: Indian.
2). Graduation: NIT (Ranked 2nd to IITs) in 2008 in Mechanical Engineering.
3). Work Ex - 5 years in a SME dealing in heavy machinery. Helped develop new verticals for the company. Currently heading the operations of a complete state. Dealt with Global manufacturers from China, Korea, Spain and U.K on a regular basis. Made two visits to China that affected company's operations significantly.
4). Extra Curricular - Photography (Have my own travel blog), travelling, reading and Playing Tennis.
5). GMAT - 700 (6.0AWA)

Career Goal: To manage global operations of a Multinational (General Management Role).

I am considering ISB, INSEAD and IESE till now. However, I also want to apply to some safer B-schools.

Can somebody guide me with this?

Cheers,
SVP

Hi Bohemian,

Your profile is competitive. You seem to have good career related achievments, with a chance to take on many responsibilities and make an impact on your organization.

Post MBA, as another option, you could consider the leadership development program of a multi national company - that will give you a two- three year grounding into the different functions of an organization and prepare you for a general management position. ISB has been sending out students for these programs in quite a big way - so if these programs interests you, ISB will be a good fit.

You could aconsider IMD and HEC Paris among the European b-schools ( I reckon you are interested, since you talk about INSEAD). Both b-schools will give you a preliminary evaluation of your profile, so write to them. These are 1 year programs, so you may have to decide what you want to do- a roller coaster ride on a year long MBA, or a more relaxed, two year version.

If you are looking at US b-schools, you can apply alomost anywhere, so long as you can submit a stellar application- all the top b-schools have excellent general management programs. Its a question of what criteria matter to you - the mode of teaching (case/ lectures/ experiential); size of school (small/big class size); location (city/ small town/ proximity to a certain industry).

If you want help deciding upon your b-schools, do reach out to us.
