Hello Fellows,

I have been reading a lot these days about pursuing my career in India and start it up with MBA at an elite B-school. I would introduce myself and then would like to ask some questions:

1.) I am currently living in Canada and have been working here for past 1 year at Canada Post (Crown Corporation) as an Industrial Engineering Officer. (I hold NRI status currently).

2.) I have been in Canada for past 8 years. I graduated from University of Windsor as Industrial Engineer with Specialization in Automotive Manufacturing Systems Option (4 year Program). My CGPA is 6/10.

3.) I also graduated with Business Marketing Diploma (2 year Program) from St. Clair College with a CGPA of 3.5/4.

4.) While I was doing my B.S. Industrial Engineering, I successfully completed a 16 month internship as a Continuous Improvement Specialist at Supply Chain Management.

5.) Recently, I achieved my Lean Six Sigma (LSS) Green Belt which my company recommended me for.

6.) In my last year University Engineering project, I worked with AUTO21 and delivered a Content Management System (CMS) while I was working as a consultant for them for 8 months.

7.) I have good amount of project work experience and team leader experience while accomplishing my tasks. Ample number of recommendation letters and references could also be provided when required. 

8.) I served as Vice President External Affairs for the International Students Society (I.S.S.) at University of Windsor for 8 months. 

9.) Peer tutoring, helping classmates with various courses, actively participating in university activities were few of my co-circular activities.

10.) Currently I hold a designation of Engineer In Training (E.I.T.) in Canada and have been actively pursuing my engineering skills to next level of becoming a P.Eng (Professional Engineer). For that I actively participate in general body meeting of PEng Society of Canada and preparing for my Professional Engineering Exams. 

11.) Also, I am an active member of IIE (Institute of Industrial Engineers)

12.) My strengths are: Communication skills, presentation skills, Marketing, Operations Research, classical Industrial Engineering Tools and many more.

13.) Apart from that, my score in Grade  X (I.C.S.E) - 74% and Grade XII (C.B.S.E.) - 74%.

Now, I am planning to prepare for GMAT as a pre-requisite for any B-school in India for NRI's.

Questions:

1.) Which B-schools should be on my focus list as per my profile?

2.) What ideal GMAT score should I be aiming at?

3.) How does my profile look like and what are my chances to be selected at ISB (EEO program) or any other top B-school in India, like IIM, XLRI, etc.?

4.) What should be my strategy to pursue my aspiration to be selected?  

Kindly suggest and your advise would be appreciated. 

Thanks.

@akshay2220 Placements do happen in IT but that doesnt form the bulk of it. Again BITS department of  Management is not 600 seater or 400 seater b-school that you find in the country . for a batch of 50 or 60 there are 40 odd and counting practice stations . thats kind of options you get to c here.

Hi Kushal, Although your profile seems interesting and you may get admission in a university abroad. But to get into a top university, GMAT scores are equally important. Your earlier academic record doesn't really matter. So, have you ever consider giving the exam again? You can take coaching and be more stringent. There are many consultants who guide students about the whole process. I think you should consider reappearing with the help of some guidance. Have heard good things about the Chopras or if you have some other consultancies in mind. Why don't you get in touch with them? Best of Luck!

WE: 84 months in IT. ( Includes experience in Microsoft, IBM)

For 1 year program , do you think I stand a chance for profile shortlisting? What should my expectation in terms of the GMAT score? I have done my grad in distance mode by the way. But rest all are fulltime. So does the selection commitee has any reservation for distance courses in terms of shortlisting them? Thanks in advance for enlightening....
