Current position: M&A Associate in Investment Banking focused in Africa

Undergrad Institution: INP-HB the top University in Ivory Coast)
Undergrad Major: Mine and Geology
Undergrad GPA: 3.8
Postgrad Institution : EM lyon Business School (top tiers B- School in France and ranked 3th by FT)
Post Major: Finance- Investment banking
Postgrad GPA: 3.5

Language = French (Native), English and Germany (Basic)

GMAT Overall: I plan to take my GMAT during mid -2017 with 700 as target.

With all elements, what is my chance to get into a top 10 B-School specially HBS or INSEAD?

Thx for all

Your goals, and community service type activities are also important. If you are not career switching, then a one year program, like INSEAD, might be a better fit given your length of experience/age. In that regard, you will be a bit of an outlier. cheers, Alex
