Indian, Male, 27
GMAT 700
Academics: Engineer from a top 100 College in the Country with a score 69

Work Experience:

5 Years in a retail product company in India. I've started and built the Human Resource operations and functions in the company. I've got 3-4 Promotions and now a part of the senior management in the company. The company is on the verge of going Global in a years time.

Others: I've taken a lot of Business initiatives and demonstrated during the college. However after I ve started working all my initiatives are confined to my workplace .

Why MBA

Well-rounded profile with a decent mix of academics, experience and extra-curriculars. GMAT score should be OK for the likes of ISB, NUS and NTU. Even other B-schools such as Anderson can be targetted with this profile. However, the top 15 schools such as INSEAD, Booth and Sloan are a a different league. They would require a higher GMAT (740+) from Indian candidates along with a better profile (more achievements, better undergrad college etc.)

If ISB / NUS / NTU is your top priority - go ahead and apply. You have a strong chance of getting in if you present yourself well in the essays.

If its INSEAD, you need to work more on your profile and get a better GMAT score too.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for reaching out!

You seem like a good candidate for the “serious targets” schools, possibly with the exception of INSEAD, but the other schools (“would like to apply”) are a bit of a stretch as it is now. You would need to up your GMAT score and round out your profile otherwise as well for them to be realistic (INSEAD too) since you are an Indian applicant and the schools expect a lot from you guys.

If you want to improve your profile a higher GMAT score is a must and I would also add extra curricular activities of some kind, preferably with a leadership role if possible.
