Hi,
First of all greetings to all.

This is Sayan from India.
My profile is as follows:
Name: Sayan Bhattacharjya
Nationality: India
Gender: Male
Age: 31+
Secondary: 83%
High school: 65%
Graduation (Biomedical engineering from tier 2 college): 7.2 CGPA IN 10
Post graduation (PGDBM in Marketing from tier 2 college): 72%
Work experiance: 6 yr 10 months in FMCG brand management. Currently working at Unilever as Assistant Brand Manager. Rated high consistently in work.
Current salary 16 lacs p.a. which is equivalent to 95,000 USD on PPP terms.

Extra curicullam activity:
- Worked for NGO in teaching unprivileged children b for a year.
- Currently working on a personal project of aggregating photographers on a single platform.

I am feeling that my education from tier 2 colleges is slowing down my career progress and reducing my earning potential. Thus want to pursue further education. Moreover I am keen on having my career in Consultancy.

Appeared for GMAT last week with one month preparation. Scored low (660 q47 v34).

Now my questions are:
1. What kind of course should I look at and from which kind of colleges to fulfill my objectives? I am not keen on doing 2 year MBA.

2. Should I aim for second attempt in GMAT? I am sure I can score at least 20-30 points better than my current score.

Thanking u in advance.

Regards,
Sayan B

Hi Sayan,

Thank you for posting your profile.

If you believe that you could easily improve your GMAT score, you should retake it. This would open up more possibilities for you especially if go above 720. Your strong work experience in FMCG and involvement in extracurricular activities can be used to help distinguish you from the competitive Indian/male/IT/engineering pool of applicants.

You may use the Financial Times MBA rankings or other resources for the list of schools as guide when you consider 1 year MBA programs. Research more on the requirements to get in, and the career placement statistics. Moreover, connect with alumni and attend MBA events once you narrow them down. This would give you a better idea of your fit with the schools.

Wish you all the best!
