Bad Acads in college is a definite disqualifier for any of the top Consulting companies . You would do well to focus on a decent grade at ISB and focus and Ops, Supply Chain and GM roles , as also leadership programmes.

You could look at a 1-year MBA from IIM/ISB, provided you can get a good GMAT score and then make a stand out application with the remaining components. Alternatively you could do a distance programme, weekend programme or other form of Executive ...

Hi... What else is ISB known for other than Consulting ? I will be having an work-ex of 4 years in Project management (Software) & Requirements Analyst from an Automotive Company. What could be various career options post-ISB ?
