@admitlane: Thanks for briefly explaining the procedure. Will definitely follow the above said steps. If I get LOR from my Current GM of my Company (Have very good Impression on him) , for how long it will be valid because if he is not there in the Company by the time I apply for the B-Schools.

Even if he's not in your company anymore, you can take his recommendation when you start applying. He will be your ex-direct supervisor by then. You cannot take advanced recommendation because recommendation format and questions vary by school.

Hi Bhupender, that is true; learning French basic level is highly recommended. Quebec is heavily promoting International Education to Indian candidates in the past 2 years and are very much interested in helping them settle in Canada so I don't think the laws will work against you, rather will benefit you a lot if you don't mind learning basic French. Thank you

@bkt_007 We received your mail and have sent you a tentative list of US schools. The pros and cons of your profile for US schools will slightly change. The critical aspects I listed in previous post were applicable for Schulich and Sauders. We will look forward to hear from you.

@admitlane Thanks a lot. Based on my experience and academics, which would be best B schools for me in terms of ROI or scholarship chances considering Europe, Canada and Asia including India.?

admitlane
AdmitLane.com @admitlane 46

1. ISB 2. IIM Executive Programs 3. Rotman (Canada) 4. Schulich (canada) 5. HEC Paris (We've had cases with low GMAT's getting scholarships)

Schols at top business schools in Europe is unlikely. You could try ESADE, Rotterdam, Said Business School as well for scholarship chances.

@masaif Dear Saif, 9+ years of experience will certainly favor your candidature. Next step for you is to take GMAT and secure a decent GMAT score. Since you wish to relocate to Canada, I would suggest that apply to Schulich, Rotman, UBC and choose the one where you get best ROI. As far as placements are concerned, you will need to network while at the campus. I am not sure whether you should go for a one-year MBA since that will limit your chances of securing internship opportunities/ jobs. So, please give it a thought and then do apply. All the best for GMAT.

@adityajadon With 4 years+ of work experience, and a decent ( 700+) score, you should be in a position to secure a call from ISB, if you present your application well. Whether you should opt for ISB/IIMs is a personal choice. You need to look at pros-cons of both. While IIMs have traditionally been accepting freshers, ISB values work experience. This impacts not only the selection process but also impacts your final placements as recruiters at IIMs even now come to recruit "freshers" in general, at ISB they certainly hope to meet experienced candidates. You must also consider other factors such as ROI, specialisation, preferred place to work post-MBA, Global recognition.

All the best

Your comparison group will be Indian IT applicant pool - which is highly competitive. Acads, work experience - looks fine though does not give you any edge. Create differentiation which is good enough to impress adcom, write inspiring essays, elaborate nicely on career goal. You should target for 700+ score. Hope this helps!

Hi Sumit. There are two intakes ie. Spring and Fall. In case you give your GMAT by May June , you can apply for the Fall intake for which the deadlines will be from Oct - Jan / Feb. Hope this helps.

Good Luck!

Hi,

I have completed my B.Tech from NIT Trichy, EEE branch in 2012 and I have a CGPA of 6.89.

My 10th score is 79.3% and 12th 77%.

Currently I am working with a product based company and this July I will be completing 3 years of professional life.

I want to pursue MBA program for my Master. So, I just want to know is it the right time to appear for GMAT and apply for MBA from Institutes like ISB, NUS, NTU etc. Will a GMAT score of 700+ is enough for getting into ISB and others considering the work experiences and grad score that I have?

Hi Giri, 

With 3 years of experiecne and 6.89 CGPA you surely need to target a score of 700 or 700 plus. You should take your GMAT latest by August so that you can apply to all the universities in round 1. All the best.
