Work Experience : 15 Months (Currently) [But planning for MBA only after 48 months of Work-ex)

10th - 86, 12th - 84, Engg. - 6.9 on scale of 10

I started working in the area recruitment after my engineering since I was more inclined in the people part of the organization, I started out as an Intern in a small technology based product company and went on to become an Executive in Hiring and will be a Asst. Manager soon. So I planning to work with same company next couple of years, since I would like to contribute to our company's growth, However I am planning for a MBA after that.

Will my profile be good enough for schools like Ross, Fuqua, Haas, Anderson, Booth ?

What schools should I be targeting for? (I want my post MBA career to be be in the strategies and in people part of the organization. I also have an interest in kick start a career in Sport Mgmt post MBA(Not very sure whether it is a right thing to put in MBA application, However I would perder B-School which would offer electives in Sport Mgmt).

What can I do to improve my profile?

Extra - Curricular : Co-ordinator of a Club in University, Done a lot of Entrepreneurial Initiatives in College.

Hobbies : Part time sport writer, Exploring literature in Philosophy.

Really excited that you are starting to plan this out now! As you know 15 months is probably not enough work experience, but 48 months will put right in the sweet spot. If you are interested in sports management, Ross has a really interesting program. They hold a yearly sports management conference that brings in some of the best in the industry (I helped plan it when I was in school!).

Thanks a lot for your reply.

Does Ross offer sport management electives in their 2 year MBA?
However, I would be having a 48 months experience which is not related to sports?
Will it affect my application?
What can I do to add value to my profile?
