Hi, I would surely recommend you gain some more work experience before applying to XLRI / ISB through the GMAT route. Many ISB applicants have 5 years of work experience for the PGPX program so you should aim at getting a 720 + in the GMAT and look at the sept 2017 or later class. I hope this helps. Thank you

You still have an option of applying to Good European b'schools with this score and your profile, The options like HEC,INSEAD and few others have been only shut for you. So go ahead with those options. In India Great Lakes, SOIL, are few colleges you can apply too. Why ain't you trying for SPJIMR GMP program. I guess they will consider your profile for GD/PI.

@bluebird2 : You need to improve your GMAT score to target good schools. At least try to be closer to 700

Hi, I have 1.5 years of experience as Systems engineer at Infosys with 10th score :84% , 12th: 74% and B.Tech :71% from not a very renowned University. I have 2 years of leadership experience from college . I am part of various NGOs in Bangalore.

Can I get into colleges abroad in spring 2017 ?

When should I apply for the same ?

Also ,Please suggest good  coaching institutes in Bangalore .

It would be great if you could spare some time and answer my queries .

Thanks

Hi Shivika, are you looking at an International or Indian MBA?

Hi, I am familiar with pagalguy and have been silent participant for a long time now. I am seeking advice on how a non-technical graduate can get into Tier 1 Indian B-schools. My profile looks like this Xth - 85% XIIth - 80%(Commerce with Maths) B.com Reg - DU - 50%(just at the borderline for MBA eligibility) Company Secretary (CS) - 1st attempt qualified I have a work experience of 2 year in IT sales. I joined the company after my graduation. I did study anything in college, that's why the score is terrible. I want to turn in around now. What is the best college I can get ? I intend to pursue MBA in India. Should I opt for GMAT or CAT??

Hi everybody

10th-  86

12th - 83

CGPA= 8.08 (on a scale of 10)

Work Experience - 25 months till date

I have done my B.Tech from civil engineering and currently working in a PSU in the hydropower department ..I would like to do MBA (specialisation in Finance) from a top  university in USA.

1)Actually my current work profile includes technical civil engineering work with very little aspects of finance. So will there be any problem in bagging a seat in those Universities.

2) Are my academics strong enough to get into top universities?

3)  Whats the average expenditure to do MBA in USA.?

Looking forward for your help guys!! Thanks!

No decent colleges in US have January Intake , January intake is the specialty of the few European and most of the UK business Schools. First of all why you want to do your MBA in Finance, You first need to answer yourself about it. Yes, its true that people do MBA to switch their career field or say area of operations. As of now you only have an option of going for Sep 2017 intake for US process. You can also look for ISB Hyderabad as you are working in reputed organization so it's definitely going to add on to your chances of getting a call from ISB if you have a score of above 720. One thing is sure you have to get a score of above 720 for any top rated B'schools in world.

There are lot of things which comes into consideration for the good score points while admission process which includes your academics, work ex, your performance during interview, etc. 

Hi all. SO this is my situation

I would like any consultant on this thread to give their advise/suggestion. I am currently working in a Big 4 company and now I plan to leave the job with 6 month exp in hand. (Which I know is nothing, but still), apart from that here is a glimpse of my credentials. :

10th - 8.2 GPA (CBSE)

12th- 91% (CBSE)

BBA graduate from top Indian university (Christ, Bangalore) - 3.4/4 GPA (First Class degree)

So now I plan to leave my job and study for GMAT and apply for 2017 Batch for Msc in either Management or Entrepreneurship/innovation management. (Want to aim for scholarship too).

What is the GMAT score I should strive for and plus is my academics achievements decent enough to crack top 10 University in Europe or US. And I plan to appear for exam by July-August (GMAT)...

I would also like to know for names of universities which I should really look into for applying.

Thank you in advance .

Kshyap 01 @kashyap2988 477

There are few top University which requires the minimum level of work ex for even Masters program e.g INSEAD and various others. you can look for ST. Gallen Masters program as it actually wants business graduates or subject related to it. Aim for atleast 720 for getting a call from Top Universities. Don't ever think of leaving the job as stated by @Phoenix2687 .

Hi,

I am a 2015 passout of a b-grade engineering college. Currently, I am working with a large  e-commerce firm as a software engineer. My previous academic credentials are as follows:-

10th --93.2

12th --86.8

Graduation-- 78.45 computer science engg.

I participated aggresively in ECAs during my school days. However I dont have much to show for my time at college.

What ECAs should I go for to bolster my chances of entering a top b-school? How much experience would i need to clear the process?

How should I start my preparation?

Any advice on an action plan is welcome

Prep Zone @prepzone 211

Hi Aashit, please note that the minimum requirements for an MBA program is 2 years if not 3 and average work experience of the Top 100 schools is 5 years of work experience so I would suggest if you are looking for an MBA at least get 3 - 4 years of work experience under your belt. Yes, you can change your field post an MBA as MBA is a tool that helps you transition. Most USA schools only have a Sept intake for which you will need to submit your application 12 - 9 months beforehand ... Schools in others parts of the world many a times also have a Spring intake in Feb. I hope this helps. Thank you
