7. During job I have materialized many big projects as a team member (SOP e-learning development and dealership training for Mahindra Navistar, Toyota SOP development and e-learning development, Call Centre pilot set up at 2 dealers, customer retention initiative). Currently I am the Territory Manager for North East dealers of Toyota.

10. I am targeting ISB for class of 2017; yet not given GMAT, planning to do somewhere in the month of August/September, preparation is going on

11. Going abroad for studies is challenge due to high cost and family (have wife and small kid)

I request you to evaluate my profile and give me your honest feedback on: How ISB will look into my application (esp. because I already have an MBA), and need your feedback on if I get through the ISB; will me being MBA already, adversely affect my chances of getting a job?

I would be highly grateful to you if you can give your true feedback and guide me.

How are the job prospects of some one who already has an MBA from a Tier 2 institute? Do placement companies look at them from a different angle?

Hi gurus and mahagurus,

I want to know from anybody, how would ISB look at someone who has a prior MBA and a work experience of more than 7 years.

Here is my situation:

Education:

Xth = 75.4% with school topper in Mathematics

XIIth = 80.0% School and north east reiognal topper

BE (Electronics) = 64.5% from The University of Pune

1 year gap for MBA prep/searching for a job

MBA (Marketing and Finance) = 3.7 out of 5.0 "A" from Symbiosis, Pune

Total work experience of 6+ years in various field (IT sales, Automotive consulting and training, Sales Management), by 2016 i will be having more than 7 years of work experience

Currently working with World's largest car manufacturer

Extra curricular = Nothing much, full time member of IEEE College chapter during engg., and Placement Brochure presentation team and an NGO during MBA college. Have done bit of a trekking with my trekking group

During job I have worked on various functions like Kaizen, Dealer Management, Sales etc

Currently working with one MBA friend of mine on a business plan related to automobile sector

From Extra curricular I am very weak I guess as I don't have much in my CV to show

Any clue, How would the adcom look at it?

Join Toastmasters and BE ACTIVE, Join and NGO and BE ACTIVE, go for a Startup (it might fail), learn a Language(Alliance Francaise for french, Max Mueller Bhavan for German), Learn a music instrument - all of this if you are so worried about your co curricular. But I would suggest getting a GMAT score and then focusing on these..

Hi @Dev_MBApagal how r you? Have you pursued your dream of doing MBA one more time?
