There is an upper limit of 15 yrs of work ex for entry into the programme AFAIK.
GMAT is just one of several factors for the admission selection. Your overall profile matters!



i was scratching my head to know which is this new programme AFAIK provided by IIMB. finally i cracked the code - "As Far As I Know"
Sir

What about older applicants with 15 + years experience? How many older applicants are there in your class? What challenges do you think they face in the class? How much of a role did GMAT play for these candidates? How do they perform in class?

Hello & thanks for this proactive initiative. I would like to introduce myself as an engineer with a post grad degree in product design from the National Institute of Design (NID), Ahmedabad. I have a total of 9 years of professional experience working as a self employed consultant in new product development and strategic design. I hold a couple of design patents and have handled projects for Eureka Forbes, WWF, Whirlpool, ONGC amongst many others. I have also initiated global linkups in healthcare design with academics from Johns Hopkins, Caltech, etc to foster innovative product development in healthcare for indian markets.

I am looking for a slot at the IIM in 2013 (missed this deadline) as I believe that it would take me to a bigger orbit of professional consulting. I see a further career in business consulting especially in companies / sectors that foster innovation. I plan to take the GMAT in first week on November 2011. I would love to get a feedback on the possibilities with this professional & educational background. Thanks.

Hi,

Thanks for the initiative.

I am posting my profile below. Please advice on the chances of getting thru:

X : 82
XII : 78%
B.Tech : 69.5%
Extra Circulars : Head Boy at my school , College Coordinator @ BTech and Placement Coordinator and represented State BasketBall team.

Domain : IT
Work Ex : 10 + years by 2012 June
6 years of International experience [ USA]

GMAT : 770 [AWA 4/6]

Regards

Hi All

Would appreciate if a few queries can be addressed which will assist me in identifying my next steps from an MBA Perspective

Background:
Total Work Ex as of March 2011 - 92 months ( inclusive of 19 months in an entreprenuerial venture)
Education - BE and MBA ( 2004 passout) ( 2 yr Regular from MDI)
Sectors worked in - IT ( Oracle and CEAI) , Exports ( Entreprenuership Venture) , Corporate Trainings ( Current Role)
In all sectors have mainly been handling the BD and Sales Role at various managerial positions

I am thinking of applying for the 2012-13 batch of IIMB EPGP.

Objective for applying: To have a platform to assist in switching sectors from BD and Sales to more of Consulting ( my reading of myself of the sector which would probably suit my career) ( As in India, offers are there from similar sectors and industries for Sales and BD only)

Questions:
1) Does the current batch/prior batch have prior MBA students on rolls
2) Does having a prior MBA from an good institute reduce the chances of admission at IIMB 1 yr course
3) What would be the average range of the GMAT Scores of successful Participants
4) From where can I get a list of companies that are a part of recruitment for 2010-11.

Would appreciate if I can get a revert on the same.

Thanks in advance.

1. I dont think there are any MBAs in the current batch.
2. If you can justify the need for a second MBA I see no reason why you cant get in. I do know that IIM-A and IIM-C do have people who already have done a 2 yr MBA prior to joining PGPX and PGPEX respectively.
3. GMAT score average is around 710
4. This will be available only in a few months' time.
