Hi

I have around 8.5 years of experience in IT(SAP PI consultant). Worked across infy, wipro and capgemini. Mostly worked across India and around 6 months in Europe and currently in Australia for a year. Mostly into technical architect/consultant role. 

Wanted to know what score(GMAT) is usually required for the top 3 IIMs(A/B/C) for the first level of screening? And how are my chances with this sort of an experience? 

I basically want to continue in IT sector but get out of delivery & get into proper consulting. Is PGPX the right approach?

Thanks in Advance!!!

hi @VR2009! PGPX programs help you do exactly that. You should also consider ISB. Your profile seems good. Target 720+ to be on the safer side. 

All the Best!

Hi Kapil, the top 2 schools with an under 18 month  program are SMU & Oxford for an MSc. in Finance for work experienced candidates. For this you are defnitely look at over 330 in the GRE or over 720 in the GMAT. I hope this helps

ISB mantra @ISBmantra.com 1,822

hi @kapil.viit! If you are particular about US, programs suitable to your needs will be the Master in Financial Engineering courses offered by top universities such as Princeton, Columbia, Cornell etc. These are extremely demanding courses and require high level of mathematical and computational skills. Some of them do not accept the GMAT, so it is safer to take the GRE. 

All the Best!

Zoologists warn of an imminent surge in the number of bird species that will become extinct within this century. Nevertheless, these zoologists are wrong. One need only consider the information gathered on native North American raptors, such as bald eagles and peregrine falcons. Several of these species came close to vanishing between 1900 and 1970, but since 1970, the local populations of these raptors have rebounded. The answer to which of the following questions provides information that would be most helpful in evaluating the argument above?

Your profile seems good, and it is quite diverse, considering most of the applicant pool is from IT background. However Indian schools are very keen on a high GMAT, so you should target a score of 700 or above. 

CareerDefiners
Career Definers.com @CareerDefiners 2

@sudarshaniimm For making a career in teaching, Phd will be a better route. But it also depends on what exactly are your career aspirations? Do you have a career plan and a mentor?  Ideally you should have answers  to these questions before embarking on this journey. Happy to have a discussion!

This course will be focused on operations and supply chain management, so if you want to work in Top consulting or FMCG companies in this field you can opt for this course but if you want to work in financial sector *than this is not the course you should be looking for.. Past batches have people for different fields including clothing to financials institutions. So past exp will not make difference if you wnat to move forwrad in the supply chain field

this post Hi Everyone, I have recently scored a 700 (unofficial) on GMAT with Q50, V34 and IR5. My profile is as below: 10th: 78% 12: 62% BE: 73% from a regular Engg college. Work Ex(a total of 60+ months): Started working with an IT MNC on CRM for 2.2 years as a part of Sales Force Automation Team. I have been awarded for my contribution in the project which was later declared as CMM5. There, I also contributed in Knowledge management of the project, prompting project members having different area expertise to share their knowledge with each other. I also trained and mentored two new joinees in the project, one of which is serving at onsite. After MNC, I joined a public sector bank as an IT Officer since June 12, looking after Bank's Network and some relevant IT projects. As a Presiding Officer of election booths, I successfully conducted General Elections 2014 and Local Municipal elections. I have also earned a JAIIB - Junior Associate of the Indian Institute of Bankers and a CAIIB - Certified Associate of Indian Institute of Bankers, which are provided by provided by Indian Institute of Banking and Finance. Extra Curricular: nothing as such. I wanted to know whether with the above mentioned profile, is a 700 a viable score or do I have to push further on GMAT score? Is the above mentioned profile competitive enough for ISB, IIM-A,B,C?

Hi @hellothere.in! Your profile looks good, but a 700 always remains a tricky score. Wiith other things falling into place, you may as well make it to ISB with a 700. But you are applying to the IIMs as well, that have a higher workex range and higher average GMAT. It may therefore help to retake the GMAT. But we are almost in August, so if you decide to retake the GMAT, it should not be at the cost of your application. It will be wise to simultaneously work on your application essays. 

All the  Best!

Hi @Quirky_Rebel! Your acads are strong and your experience looks good as well. EEO is a competitive entry route where only exceptional candidates are selected. Till now things look good. A 730+ GMAT clubbed with a strong set of essays should work well for you.
