Testing to Operations to Banking. 3 years 3 jobs... Wow. I think you will need to do a lot of explaining. Be ready n focus on your GMAT now. 730 is a good target. If you cannot go beyond this at least try and get as close to it as possible. Also it would help if you can tell us where do you want to go after your MBA. Wish you all the best n remember your 'Like' enhances my Karma. TiA Llewellyn DeSouza

Hi Udbhav,

I hope you're doing well!

Good to know that you are taking definitive steps towards an MBA.
Suggest you to take mock test for GMAT and check your self, what kind of score you're getting. If you're getting above 600 then go head for online classes or books materials.
Now, coming to your profile you have a decent profile. You should aim for at least 720+ to apply for your preferred B-School. ISB & INSEAD is good school for you, but NUS is bit complicated. Reason because acceptance rate of NUS is very low for Indian candidates. It is just 10%.

Best of luck for your GMAT.

Cheers!

- i think you have a good profile for the business schools you are targeting. Haas is a definite reach while you can apply to all other b-schools. Also applying to 5-7 b-schools should be the right strategy. 9-10 is just too many and you would risk compromising the quality of your application.

Hello Friends,

My Experience in SOIL- The top notch management institute which inculcate One year Executive MBA in India...

Most students who quit their job for doing MBA will think whether they have taken the correct decision. The same question arises in me when I quit my job for doing MBA in School of Inspired Leadership (SOIL). Once I get into the college, I had a different kind of experience right from the very first day. One of the unique aspects which I feel here is the Individual Learning Plan (ILP). ILP is created within the first week of induction at SOIL through an elaborate process termed as Development centre. It's a case study on me that indicates what I am good at and what I need to improve in me. Now I have spent almost 4 months in SOIL, the behavioural change and learning's which I experiencing here is immense that I don't know whether I could get in any other B-schools in India. I feel that this segment is my turning point where I found the purpose of my Life.

Hello Everyone,

I am currently a second year student doing my Bachelors in Arts from St. Francis College, Hyderabad. I have a strong desire to pursue a Msc. degree in management programme from the likes of ESSEC, HEC Paris etc. My profile is as follows:-

Xth(CBSE Board)-85%

XIIth (CBSE Board)-80%

I am very keen on working in a corporate world, but have not done any internships as of yet, but I am in a dilemma of whether I should work on building an all round profile, which may get entertained by ESSEC/HEC, or focus on the conventional path of try getting an MBA degree from top B-schools of the country. I request your kind help in clarifying my understanding regarding the following points:-

1) Do I stand a chance of getting into any of these schools like ESSEC, HEC etc, in case I have a strong academic background in college?

2) If yes, please guide me on what i can do in these remaining period of 1 1/2 to 2 years (in terms of ECA/CCA activities) to build an overall sound and balanced profile.

3) What are the prospects of an Indian MIM student to work abroad as well as in India, once he/she completes their Msc. degree?

4) When do you suggest I should appear for GMAT, in case I wish to apply for scholarships?

I will be grateful if anyone could shed some light on the above listed queries.

Hey Ananya,

Well i cleared ESSEC last year so i'll try to answer your doubts to the best of my abilities.                                                                                                                               1) HEC, ESSEC and ESCP are the top management schools in France and hence are pretty competitive, they require much more than just strong academics at school. A good GMAT score, extra-curriculars, proven leadership abilities and of course a really great application package are things which are really valued by these schools, and are a must for any serious candidate. So you'll have to provide a lot more info than just your academic scores to allow one to get an idea of your chances at these schools.

2) I think i already answered that in my first point, work towards building those skills . Also an internship or two will help.

3) As for the prospects, well the placements are pretty good. You get well paid jobs in almost all sectors in really good companies. Though that said, it is not a walk in the park. Being a non-EU citizen you really will have to prove yourself and struggle a bit to land the really good jobs, but then again if you work hard during the MiM it should be a piece of cake. Also learn french, it helps enormously.

4) If you still have 2 years to go, i suggest give your GMAT by this time next year, so that you can apply in the 1st or 2nd round. Applying in the early rounds with a good application strongly increases your chance to clinch an admission and a scholarship.        

Hope the answer helped. You can check out

I was a working IT Professional for 4 years, when I decided to go for an MBA. I chose Jamboree - Pune because of its small class size and a very good instructor (Rohit). I took the weekend batch as I had to work Mon - Fri. The classes were very focussed and informative. The instructor taught us to study in an effective manner, taught us to manage our time better and the long classes (3+ hours) ensured that we are able to maintain concentration for long periods (which really helps in last stages of GMAT). Also, the classes were very interesting and interactive. The jamboree material has more than enough questions to practice and hone your skills to avoid common mistakes. The regular assignments keep us focussed and we never loose touch with the goal of a 700 plus GMAT score. The instructor is always reachable in case you have any queries. Also, the admin staff is very helpful as well. In my second attempt I scored 740 in 2014. I also used Jamboree's guidance to help me select colleges based on my score and with my essays. I am joining Emory GBS with scholarship in 2015.

Hi Guys,

I gave my exam GMAT yesterday and was disheartened to see a score of 530 with Quant 44 and Verbal 22. After the debrief, I understood the reason for the low score might have been the lack of the analysis of the results after the exam and I was very slow and had to randomly mark the last few questions in both the sections. So, this time around I am planning to fine-tune my preparation by further strengthening the fundamentals and give around 5-6 mock tests before the next Gmat exam in real exam conditions(i.e with 8 min breaks and answering AWA and IR sections) and analysing the result after every mock test and measure the progress. I need some guidance in further fine tuning the preparation.

Are there any persons from Pune who can help me, I would love to have a guidance from you to get a better score.

Two works published in 1984 demonstrate contrasting approaches to writing the history of United States women. Buel and Buel’s biography of Mary Fish (1736–1818) makes little effort to place her story in the context of recent historiography on women. Lebsock, meanwhile, attempts not only to write the history of women in one southern community, but also to redirect two decades of historiographical debate as to whether women gained or lost status in the nineteenth century as compared with the eighteenth century. Although both books offer the reader the opportunity to assess this controversy regarding women’s status, only Lebsock’s deals with it directly. She examines several different aspects of women’s status, helping to refine and resolve the issues. She concludes that while women gained autonomy in some areas, especially in the private sphere, they lost it in many aspects of the economic sphere. More importantly, she shows that the debate itself depends on frame of reference: in many respects, women lost power in relation to men, for example, as certain jobs (delivering babies, supervising schools) were taken over by men. Yet women also gained power in comparison with their previous status, owning a higher proportion of real estate, for example. In contrast, Buel and Buel’s biography provides ample raw material for questioning the myth, fostered by some historians, of a colonial golden age in the eighteenth century but does not give the reader much guidance in analyzing the controversy over women’s status.


The passage suggests that Lebsock believes that compared to nineteenth-century American women, eighteenth-century American women were

(A) in many respects less powerful in relation to men

(B) more likely to own real estate

(C) generally more economically independent

(D) more independent in conducting their private lives

(E) less likely to work as school superintendents

I have completed my graduation and post graduation from Indian universities. Do I need transcripts of all my post-school education? Are  the mark-sheets and the degree certificates awarded by respective universities not sufficient?

Do I need to submit these along with my application, or carry these during interview/admission only.
