Profile evaluation for INSEAD/ISB/PGPX at IIMA/B

Post Thu Jul 27, 2017 6:43 am
Hi, everyone.

I am considering a one year MBA program and am seeking your help on profile evaluation and on which colleges to apply to
Profile: 30 years female; commerce graduate from Delhi University
Professional experience: I have ten years of experience in business research with leading management consulting firms; Although I started with generalist research profile, I have built expertise in manufacturing industry. I do not see myself growing in the manufacturing industry as the industry is more suited for people who are mechanical engineers.
Post MBA goal: To work in a product management role in an e-commerce firm although I am equally open to figuring out what I want to do post MBA
Extra Curricular: I have strong NGO experience and have led a massive voting awareness campaign; have a certificate course in social entrepreneurship
Hobbies: I started a creative venture some time ago (part time) although was not able to convert it full time
Country of preference: I am pretty open to working in any geography.
Academics: 85% in 10 and 10+2
Bachelor’s: 3.4 GPA
GMAT: Yet to take (Let’s assume it is 720)
Choice of schools: Can anyone help me decide which college is more apt given my background?
1. INSEAD: More fees
2. ISB: More diversity
3. IIM (A/B)
4. Any other ?

Hello there!
So on the surface in a general manner your profile does look very nice. But in truth if we are to dig in and start to evaluate where you can and should apply we will need a LOT more info from you!
Where do you work? What do you do? (for EACH positions and employer) How quickly have you advanced? Do you have any leadership? What are your great achievements? Do you have notable community service or extra curriculars? Which school did you graduate from?

All of these will play very important roles in your evaluation.

Feel free to sign up for a free consultation and give us specific answers to specific questions here: http://admissionado.com/free-consultation/mba-consultation/?utm_source=btg&utm_medium=forum&utm_campaign=mba_blog

Best,
Jon
