Candidate:

Mr. Bangladeshi Analyst

About Me:

IT Business Analyst. Product Owner. Heading a department of 25+ people. Worked at a Software Development firm for 2+ years, making business applications for European companies. Now switching to an early stage start-up to build (and market) a consumer-facing product. I want to move out of the Bangladeshi job market & explore the global tech industry.

  • The MBA Exchange Odds Assessment: 15%

    Hi, Deepak Punwani from MBA Exchange. You have a differentiated profile for sure. Am based in Mumbai and B schools don’t see too many applicants from our eastern neighbours. Plus the start up role is a plus. The GMAT and academic score may be borderline but if you can show leadership and ability to bring a fresh perspective to class, then you have some chance. One note of caution though – please don’t make it seem that you are using a B school degree to solely move out of your country. You mentioned this a few times and while exploring the (wild) western world may be on the agenda, done have that as your primary reason for the “why MBA”, “why Now” answer. Also if …

  • mbaMission | Odds Assessment: 5%

    Hello Mr. Bangladeshi Analyst! Krista Nannery from mbaMission here.
    Let’s get the obvious out of the way because you’re probably thinking “5%! How can she say my odds at HBS are 5%!??” The HBS acceptance rate hovers around 11% these days. You would be applying with less than 3 years of work experience and a 690 GMAT score, both of which put you below the averages at HBS. Plus, you JUST started at your new job and my guess is that you don’t have much of an impact to speak to at this moment. HBS loves leadership and impact Now that’s not to say that you won’t be successful at all in this competitive process…it’s more that the odds are not in your favor.
    I think …

  • Stratus Admissions Counseling | Odds Assessment: 20%

    Hi, it’s Jennifer Jackson from Stratus Admissions. You have a lot of interesting parts of your profile, especially the fact that you’re from Bangladesh! Of course there are many applicants from South Asia, but very few come from Bangladesh so that sets you apart right away. You’ve got wonderful tech and startup experience but are a bit light on number of years of employment and would likely be stronger if you worked a bit more at this startup. If you do choose to apply for R1 this year, be sure to really drill down on the WHY MBA and WHY NOW aspect of your application. You’ll need to make a compelling case that you’re faced with challenges at work right now that you would be …
