Profile Evaluation Required

Post Sat Dec 12, 2015 10:59 am
Hello,

I am looking to get a second MBA. I completed my MBA from one of the top 10 B schools in India. However, I was fresh out of Undergrad then and had no professional experience prior to my MBA. I worked for 5 years post my MBA, and now feel a second MBA will broaden my international exposure and help me build networks and expertise in industries I want to build my career in, in the long term.
I'm looking to get an opinion of my profile so I can assess my chances at admissions at top schools. I'm aiming for Harvard (reach school), but I'm also looking at Columbia, Wharton, MIT Sloan, NYU Stern, INSEAD

Nationality: Indian
Gender: Female
Age: 28
Education: MBA, Indian Institute of Management Kozhikode (Amongst Top 10 B schools in India) (CG: 3.6; Top 10% of class); Electronics and Communications Engineer, NSIT Delhi (Amongst Top 10 Tech schools in India) (CG : 8.8; Top 5% of Class)

Hi Swati,

Thanks for thinking of us!

Funny you should reach out... we actually just took a client on from Snapdeal.com.

I'd like you to email this to our Director of Candidate Strategy, Matt Ford, at matt.ford@stratusprep.com. He'll be able to give you a full profile evaluation and see how you can improve your candidacy and make these dream schools a reality!

Best,
The Stratus Prep Team
