Profile Eval for ISB / IIM A PGPX / IIM B EPGP / IIM C PGPEX

Post
Hello,

Please evaluate my profile for One year MBA programs at ISB / IIM A (PGPX) / IIM B (EPGP) / IIM C (PGPEX)


Academics:
Bachelor of Engg (Electronics & Telecom) - 73.5% (Distinction)(University of Mumbai)
Master of Science (Telecom Engineering) - GPA 3.9/4.0 (University of Maryland, College Park)

During my masters, I took 4 management courses from R.H Smith school of Business at University of Maryland (studying alongside MBA grads)
That's when I got more interested towards getting a full time MBA

Also, I received an award from University of Maryland for academic excelllence (2nd Rank in MS program)
I was also a co-founder of UMD cricket club (1st of it's kind to promote the sport of Cricket and related events to all parts of campus)

GMAT - no score yet (expecting 700+)

Work Experience:
1 year intership and 5 months full-time experience at a Telecommunications Startup in United States
2 Years and 8 months (still working) full-time experience at AT&T wireless labs in US

I believe I have a good technical and hands on experience - working on some of the most challenging projects in the wireless industry
I have a good exposure of working with almost all of the major telecom companies, device vendors, equipment vendors in US.

Post MBA goal - Strategy role in Tech industry


Some other points which may add value to profile:

- Community Service - Volunteering at the ISKCON temple during events and festivals (2 years)
- worked part time at the university during Masters (Shipping and Receiving assistant)
- I have a CWNA - wireless network certification
- I have been trading stocks from past 3 years

I am aware that it requires a lot of experience to get into the executive programs but I was wondering if my profile will be considered as I already have a 2 years MS degree.

Many thanks in advance!

Hello @alphak3nny001

To keep it short, the 'stats' of your profile cover almost all the bases (provided you get a 700+). Work Ex, strong extracurricular, and international exposure will help you stand out.
Based on the info give I believe you are not eligible at IIMB/IIMC as they require 60 months of work ex by Mar 2019. ( irrespective of your MS degree)
For ISB/IIMA key is exection of the application. If you can tie in well, then you stand a fighting chance.

Your work experience is unique and you may have plenty of things to talk in your profile. B-schools look for unique and diversified profiles which you carry. You can also get into schools who offer MBA specializing or focus into Healthcare.

Your GMAT can be compensated with achievements, Leadership Potential, Clarity of Goals, Communication and Diversity etc.

In addition to your GMAT score, your undergraduate degree (and grades), your work experience (both quality and number of years), your essays, and your letters of recommendations will all play a role in determining whether any School will accept you. If you're weak in any one area, you need to be stronger in the other areas to compensate. A solid profile which is balanced on all fronts - academics, career growth and impact, and leadership experiences outside work is more likely to impress the Adcom.

Use the link mentioned below to know your chances of getting into any B-Schools by using our ingenious tool called “Chances Of B-School” by entering your profile details.

“Chances of B-School” is a unique tool to analyze your real time chances of getting an admission to a top MBA program based on your GMAT score, work experience, your career aspirations, academics, self-analysis of your essays and interview skills. This tool will help you to focus your thoughts; by giving a factual picture of the B-Schools you have a good chance of getting an admission. We at General Education believe that finding the right school is a crucial decision and it has to be done with the help of exhaustive data and statistics.

Feel free to contact us for further information and to evaluate your profile for FREE!!!

Your profile is certainly attractive for B-schools. But first get the GMAT score, without which it will be impossible to predict your chances.
