Never been to China? Dont' speak Mandarin? Clueless what the MBA feels like??
What are the academic, work experience and profile requirements for the full-time MBA in CEIBS?
Ananth, similarly the opportunities for non-Mandarin speakers in IT are there, but are not as easy to come by as for Mandarin speakers. One example is our Indian graduate from 2011, who worked for as Operations Planning Manager for Ikanos Communications in India, and upon graduation moved to SanDisc Shanghai, and recently secured a position as Supply Chain Business Process Manager at Microsoft in Shanghai. I can tell you for example that for their MBA position in China, Microsoft hires exclusively at CEIBS.
Hope this helps.
For questions that are specific to you I recommend you contact our Admissions Dept directly, but to answer you question on here -
1) Yes you can use a copy meanwhile until we recieve the official response
2) Of course it is in our online application system, in thd PDF under Recommendations,
I have a couple queries here.
1) I requested the GMAT scores to be sent on march 22 and I think it takes a while to reach the college. I shall upload the student copy of GMAT.Is it ok to go ahead and apply ?
2) I have not found the Recommendation letter format anywhere. Is there any standard for the same ?
I have very less time at my disposal. Any help on this is appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Your inputs would help a great deal in setting my expectations and aid in my preparation.
@ajayg1984, The China PE and VC sector is huge, with amazing potential. Nevertheless it is quite a "local" industry and usually highers those with high proficiency in the Mandarin Language. We have other international students working in VC - PE, and in fact one of them who is Indian made a career switch from a sailor to working for a local PE firm, without Mandarin proficiency. But he was head of our Finance club and made extraordinary efforts to do so. Indeed to for non-native speakers who want to go into Finance and who don't hold a special skill or experience finding those opportunities maybe tricky. I recommend you be flexible enough in also seeking opportunities in Hong Kong (every year we have a Career Trek for our students to HK, and have built a platform of contacts in the territory) and also consider returning to India and working with companies who have important activity in China.
To sum up - there are possibilties but you have to be flexible and proactive on your job search.
Hope that answers your question.
