Help with shortlisting B Schools

Post Mon Dec 11, 2017 9:34 am
Hi

My name is Gagandeep. I just gave my GMAT, and I am looking for some guidance on how to go about shortlisting the right schools for myself. Following are the details about my score and background:

GMAT - 720 (Quant: 50, Verbal: 38, IR: 7, AWA: waiting for official score report)
Nationality: Indian
Work experience: 4.5 Years
Designation: Manager
Current Organisation: Flipkart (e-commerce)
Qualification: BE (Hons) Civil Engg.- BITS Pilani

I have been have worked for a construction company previously, for almost 2 years. I was into project management back then, and also got involved into operations and procurement. Post that, I moved to Flipkart ( a leading e-commerce company in India), where I have worked in multiple teams in the last 2.5 years. I have had exposure to multiple angles of the business (have worked with vendors/suppliers, sellers, banks) over this period, and am currently into Strategy and Operations for Payments and Consumer Finance business (we strive to drive affordability for customers by closely working with banks).

I am willing to explore the following career opportunities post MBA - Consulting, Operations, Product Management

I need help with shortlisting relevant B schools, which are in line with my career goals, and which can be cracked with my GMAT score and my background. Any help will be appreciated.

Hi Gagandeep,
Consulting is the most common recruiting industry at B-schools, and top 20-25 schools can get you there. If you mean PM role in tech industry, then again most top schools, those on the West Coast (Haas, UCLA, UW etc.) and schools such as Tepper or specialized programs such Cornell’s could be considered. Few go into operations. While reputed programs will get you there, you’ll have to consider schools case by case. Another thing to consider is feasibility in getting sponsored for visa. It would be relatively easier in case of PM and consulting roles.

Having said that, you need to have one clear goal.
