You have a good profile. GRE is too low for the absolute top ones, though. Also that hurts your chance of getting some nice scholarships. Push you GRE above 325 or GMAT (700+ for the top 10 and 680+ for the rest) and keep building your profile. Post that, it's all on how you communicate what you have done so far in front of the admissions committee. Also try pushing your CGPA above 8 by the time you complete your graduation. That's something I missed on.

You have a fair overall profile. 

  • Your undergrad score is below par for a top school, but it is compensated for by a good GMAT score. Your application needs to be further strengthened with a good overall application, with stellar essays and glowing recommendations, and you have a decent chance of making it to a good school!
  • Make sure to highlight important aspects of your work which showcase your abilities which the schools are looking for. Also do some research on what qualities your target b-schools look for in an applicant.
  • You have good work-ex of 1 yr, which will add value to your application. MiM applicants usually have 0-2 years of work experience, so you are right in the middle of the range. A few schools you can target are HEC Paris, LBS, ESCP Europe and ESSEC. Although highly competitive schools, your good GMAT score, combined with your decent extracurricular activities and research papers published give you a fair chance of making it. YOU need to ensure that your application is holistic and well-made, and especially, your essays will play a major role in determining whether you are the right fit for the school.

  • An amazing reputation for being one of the best business schools in the world, no matter where you go the name LBS is instantly recognizable
  • Access to a number of global corporations. Partly due to the schools strong career services & also due to the excellent location of the school.

Hey Neha,

You have a fair overall profile. Here are some of the strengths:

  • Your CGPA is decent which shows good academic performance and can be used in your application.
  • Coming to the GMAT, if you are able to score 700+, substantial value would be added to your profile and it can even help you compensate for any profile weaknesses.
  • A total work experience of 2.4 years is an added advantage. Do note that for the MBA, the recommended work experience is around 5 years while work experience for MSc in Marketing depends on the various schools and generally, 2.4 years is good to go.
  • Make sure to highlight the important aspect of your work which showcase your abilities which the schools are looking for. Also do some research on what qualities your target b-schools look for in an applicant.
  • Your skills and extracurricular activity are on positive side so make sure you provide details about them. This will add more value to your application.

HEC Paris is world's number 2 MIM program, replaced from the number 1 spot by St Gallen.

Important to not that France has 25 MIM programs in Top 100 worldwide as per FT while UK has 23. Both are good for Indians.


Post study visa in the UK is 4 months and in France 24 months

I am thinking of going for an mim from top schools in EU but i have heard that international students face a lot of problem in getting a job and they generally have to return back. Is it true??

Hey there,

MiM is a great degree, and has been one of the best investments of my life.

It is well respected in Europe and has a good scope, but it does not count for anything in India, at this moment.

India has been and will be in love with its IITs & IIM's, and for good reason, they are great institutes. Also with good business students being churned out at a rapid rate from the top 10-15 Indian B-schools, your European degree won't be seen in the same light.

Well.. don’t do an MiM if your plan is to come back to India and join a corporate over here. You will not be considered as an elite business student and most probably would be traded as a tier-2 business school student, and can expect a salary of around 12 LPA.

So that way your ROI goes down the drain.

Maybe in 6 years you'll be able to pay the loan off.

SO before you say chuck MiM, I'm opening my CAT books again..

think it through.

As i mentioned the MiM is pretty well known in Europe and in some countries especially in France is the way to go if you want to end up in any big corporate company may it be Finance, Consulting and so on.

So well what you should do is...

  1. Choose a country where the immigration laws are not that strict, and you have a chance to work for some time before returning home
  2. Work hard while you are doing the MiM, the job market is VERY COMPETITIVE, just because you come from a good school, companies will not be fighting over you. Be proactive, learn new skills, keep gaining experience in a sector relevant to the industry you want to work in. So if you think it'll be a piece of cake think again                 
  3. So last step is, get an internship, convert it into a job and work for around 1-2 years here, gain some relevant international experience & skills at a renowned MNC and return to India like a boss. You will be getting jobs at par, if not better than any IIM grad. Also in the process you would have saved around 30000 euros in the last 2 years. Average starting salary is 45000- 55000 euros. And hence in 2-3 years would be able to pay your loan off.

Do your research well, work hard & you will get a job easily.

So well hope the answer helped. If you need any help you can read our blog for more information regarding mim at
