Hi, and thanks for writing! You have an intriguing profile. What I'd like to understand first is - what made you decide to apply to business school, and what would you like to do in the short-term and long-term after graduating? Also, what is your post-MBA geographic preference?

Look forward to hearing back from you!

Hello mbaMissionNishaT, thanks for the prompt reply.

I was always interested on the business aspects of the oilfield industry, i took several business and economics electives in school but in 2014 my technical workload reduced drastically and i started to work with business related issues and realized that i should quit the technical side.

After the MBA, my goal is to work with business development for the energy business. I intend to work as a consultant first and them move to a big energy company.

My priority is to come back to Brazil, but i am also open to work abroad, mainly US or UK.

Hi, and thanks for writing back and sharing your goals! Overall, I think you have a diverse and solid profile. A 700+ GMAT would definitely help offset your undergrad GPA. Kellogg is the most competitive school on your list but I think the others are within range for you. In the US, you might also consider Duke (if the sustainability aspect of energy interests you) and UT Austin (given the presence of energy companies in Texas).

Hope that helps and let me know of any other questions!
