600 is really a bit on the lower side, give your domain specific experience of 4 years...and good certifications, anything above 680 would be a good bet..to get into a decent bschool

What Industry expects from a B-School Graduate? Business Schools have over the last decade or more been at the forefront of career opportunities for the aspiring employee. Almost any student passing out of school would have thought about enrolling for a 'MBA' program at some time or the other.

For HBS which round is more conducive the one with a deadline on Sep 9 or the one with a deadline in Jan? I have a 730 GMAT with 43 months of exp in an international Cement Company. I am looking at a General Management role post MBA in the US.

Hi @MissionISB2015! Your profile seems rich and if you commit yourself now, 9 days should be pretty possible to apply to Harvard. There is just one essay. Spend 3 days introspecting and planning what to write, next 3 days writing it and the last 3 days editing it. Waiting for R2 will only put you at a disadvantage. 

All the Best!

@MissionISB - I agree that applying in R1 makes a lot of sense for Indian applicants. But getting your essay story right is crucial (ofcourse there are no right or wrong responses for HBS' open ended question). Infact the open ended variety are the most difficult ones to write because you have to give it your own direction without rambling about too many things and making a hodge-podge.

So, you should submit your best application, whenever the case be. Sometimes when the tougher applications are your first ones to write, you are likely to not do your best job there. That's another perspective.

The truth is you can not change what is bound to happen, you have to face it to get through it.

Hi, I recently gave the gmat and got a 730. My profile is as follows

BE - 66% from Nagpur university

2 years of techie work ex after that in techmahindra

MBA from Scmhrd between 2008-10. Worked for a top FMCG firm between 2010 till Feb 2014.

I was an area sales manager and led teams from size 5 to 10 (on stretch assignments). Then was a Brand manager for 1.5 yrs and was part of a very successful brand team. I was the only one shifting to brands from sales in that year in my company. Overall good leadership exp in this phase of my career and lots of challenging assignments to talk about.

Currently I am working with a mktg Analytics startup in Bangalore as a consultant and have a team of 3 business analysts reporting to me. This is exciting work with most clients From the US and Europe. The culture is very different from a FMCG firm and one of the reasons I joined. I wanted to exp working in start ups before I went in for another MBA to better understand their challenges. 

So total of 6 yrs of work ex. 4 yrs post MBA, 2 yrs pre MBA. 

My aim is one of the following colleges Wharton / LBS / Kellogg / Ross / Tuck / Duke. I want to keep Emory as a safe school.

My acads are ok throughout. Not Topper material but always in top 15 percentile.

I have been an active quizzer throughout my college life and have won a few of them. I have played football for the college team and I am a runner. I have ran a few 10ks and plan to run the half marathon in oct and I am training for it.

I have been active in committees and event organising (headed quiz comms, cultural festivals etc) and have been part of my earlier mba school's placement committee. 

Any comments on how realistic my aspirations are and how to go about the process of applying to schools would be of immense help. Also plz ignore the spellings. This iPad is cumbersome to type on.

Rajni Kumar @isb2015eeoadmit 104

@welcome2012 With a 660 you may make it to SP Jain but to be honest it is not one of the top schools accepting GMAT in India. Try scoring more at the GMAT while you still have the time and apply to ISB and IIMs AB&C.

All the best.

@mba-help Hey Namita....... Thanks for replying....... Well yes I am looking for a spot in 2016 cycle. I will be applying to INSEAD, HEC as well but very reluctantly with the current situation of the European market. Well I may be wrong but this is a big fear I have at the moment. And yes I will be looking to apply in some good American B - Schools too, and surely will seek your help in suggesting me some.

MBA Decoder @mba-help 1.2 k

@achandra1809 - well a lot depends on what you want to achieve after MBA and whether the b-school is helpful in getting you that role. At INSEAD & HEC - you should be quite safe because these are top of the league programs. You have enough time tile their Feb deadlines to form more informed views through student interactions.
