So, Here are some bits and fragments of who I am, thus far.

The test was pretty grilling for Bank PO - odds 1/100

Managed the clubs MArketing as well as finances

Taking the CFA this year. so I guess I will be a Level I pass when I apply

Speak French - intermediate Level - certifiedSpanish - beginners (can ameliorate)

Why MBA?

A better leadership profile

Current job has a considerable leadership scope and opportunities. Availed Some of them.My area of operations was lauded by the RBI Governor for achieving financial inclusion (photos and all)frequent participation toward contributing events of Corporate-Socio Responsibility


Acknowledged for developing and incorporating sound systems and practices for efficieny mgmt and risk mitigation in Branch. Worked in rural areas - soound understanding of ground realities. Observed policy implementation at ground level


deputed by the Election Commission of India as Presiding Officer at Hissar Election.


Where in future?

I wish to switch over to an IB profile. Typically at a Hedge fund. and as a fund Manager some time from now.


Schools in order of Pref.

1. INSEAD

2. NYU Stern

3. ISB

I figure I am not the quintessential Overachiever (cough - Indian IT guy from an IIT). But this is actually a story of a guy who went out and did something with his bare hands instead of being offered a corner office right outta college. So, When I paint it so, would they Like it?How good does my GMAT need to be to offset a 65% degree which is non-IIT?


I'd appreciate an analysis, and would like to convey an expression of interest towards INSEAD with a lot enthusiasm.

If you possess a full university degree (undergraduate or postgraduate) where all courses were taught exclusively in English, we will accept your degree as proof of your fluency in English. Your transcripts should clearly indicate that the entire curriculum was solely taught in English. Otherwise, you may take one of the following English language tests ......(TOEFL/ IELTS)


English is not my native language, but I have lived and worked in an English speaking country for many years. Do I still need to provide additional proof of fluency in English?

Yes. Living and working in an English-speaking environment is not accepted as proof of fluency in English. If you possess a full university degree (undergraduate or postgraduate) where all courses were taught exclusively in English, we will accept your degree as proof of your fluency in English. Your transcripts should clearly indicate that the curriculum was entirely taught in English. Otherwise, you may take one of the following English language tests t score ....
