By the time I wish to join this program in 2012, I will have completed 5.5 yrs of full time work exp. in 2 MNCs.
But have doubts to you mentioning "minimum 5 years of relevant managerial exp."

Does 1 promotion from entry level achieved by me qualify as this "managerial" requirement?
Do the desired leadership qualities need to be "position specific" or can they be projected from having a lower level position as well?
What would the admission committee have in mind when it comes to experience?

Thanks for the info!!

Hello there!!

I have an exp. of 5 yrs with 2 MNCs in Automation n Control Industry. First employer MNC was a campus recruitment.
I have decent Acads with 84 % in SSC, HSC and 75 % in BE.

How does my profile look as to chances in ISB? I guess a different industry may add value as compared to a beaten to death IT exp.
Also, Should I apply in R1 or an R2 application be treated equally? Asking cos R1 seems to be a little tight on time owing to my loaded work schedule.
