Hi, all GMAT aspirants from Kolkata can discuss interview strategies on this thread
Just a short summary of my resume:
I am a CA, FRM and CFA level 3 candidate (positive result expected in Aug15). Currently, I am working with a big4 consulting firm as a financial due diligence professional (expect to get promoted in Oct15). Total post CA qualification workex of more than 3.5 years (2.5 years in current firm and 1 year in a small equity research firm). In addition, I did my CA internship from PWC (another Big4) and the same was post graduation. (I expect Adcoms to consider it. Therefore, including internship, a total workex of 6.5 years at the moment). No great extra-curriculars worth mentioning.
I will be sitting for GMAT this year and targeting a score in the range of 710 to 730.
I wish to start my MBA in finance in 2016 with a specialization in corporate finance. I am looking for courses that have a tenure of 1 to 1.5 years.
I have 2 requests:
1. Kindly evaluate my profile
2. Kindly suggest which colleges I must target (would be helpful if we could categorize colleges into (a) Asia and (b) US and other countries)
Please evaluate my profile as under:
Graduation: 7.78 CGPA
Qualification: B.Tech. , Computer Engg from NIT Jaipur
Work-experience: 3+ years by the time September '16 fall batches start. Worked in tech consulting role with Deloitte and currently in Microsoft with similar work profile.
GMAT (yet to take). Expected score: 680-730
TOEFL(yet to take). Expected score: 100+
Institutes I am targetting: HEC Paris , NUS Singapore, HKUST, Booth,Northwestern University, ISB Hyderabad, SPJIMR.
Preferable domain: Marketing (brand management) / Strategy Consulting (IT)
Financial Condition: Seek loan/ scholarship from schools. Intending to stay abroad for 4-5 years at least.
Please let me know how my profile looks like, and what are the things that I need to take care of, the schools that I should consider etc. I have been preparing for GMAT for over a month now, and would be taking the test by end of August '15.
I understand many schools do not accept a 3 year undergrad (15 year study) as valid for admission. Would want to know the top international colleges that do accept the same - Kindly help with a list of schools if available. GMAT score target 730+
I am currently pursuing my MS in Industrial & Systems Engineering with full scholarship in one of the middle-tier institutes in the US. I am a Chemical Engineer as well from one of the top non-IIT institutes in India. Prior to coming here in the US for my Masters,I have had 3 years of project management experience in the oil & gas sector (projects were construction of refineries & utility plants) in India.
I am a Lean Six Sigma Green belt certified by ASQ and I am planning to go ahead with CSCP certification by the end of May 2016. I intend to have a career in SCM or Process Improvement in the short-term and get into Management consulting in the long-term(around 5 years time).
I have decent extra-curriculars in my Bachelors and have excellent ones in my Masters till now. I especially hold quite a few leadership roles in my current university in the US. My GRE score (May'11) is 326.TOEFL was 115 but needs to be given again since its valid only for 2 years.
I would like to do an MBA but I am not sure when and how to approach the plan. The best thing would be to get a job in the US, work for a couple of years and then get into a MBA program. However, I was exploring the option of going back to India, start working there and get into programs like the executive ones in the IIMs or ISB subsequently. How do you guys see this plan? How about applying to ISB immediately after going back to India? Anybody here has that kind of experience?
Thanks in advance for your feedback.
I have just given my gmat.I managed to get a 690 and I am planning to retake gmat.Could someone please help me with the choice of colleges I can opt to with this score?I have been primarily targeting Indian B schools such as ISB and SP jain.For ISB, I know I must score better.Could someone let me know if there is a good chance for SP Jain?I would also want to know about good international colleges, which could accept a 690.Due to financial constraints, I have never really thought about an International B program.Are there any chances for Scholarships, with this score?It would be great if someone could help me.Thanks in Advance.
