    Hi, this is Deepak Punwani from MBA Exchange. You have a good profile for UK based schools – am guessing you are targeting schools in that geography. The international nature of your education, very solid GPA, higher than average GMAT for UK / European schools – all bode well. Your work experience across London and Mumbai and now graduating to getting a stake in business will all make you stand out from the competitive Indian applicant pool. Would encourage you to think deeply about your goals and why is consulting meaningful to you. Would also encourage you to think about all that you are passionate outside of work and how your extra curricular activities add to your profile. My last point relates to your …

  • mbaMission Odds Assessment: 45%

    Hi, it’s Nisha from mbaMission! It sounds like you’ve had a very progressive career so far in financial advisory – starting a financial advisory divison from scratch and becoming partner is very impressive, so congratulations on that accomplishment!

  • Stratus Admissions Counseling Odds Assessment: 35%

    Mr. Strategy Consulting Future – Thanks for posting your profile. Susan Cera here from Stratus. Your solid stats and consulting experience should position you well at top UK MBA programs. I’m curious as to why Said as opposed to other schools. In my experience, Oxford leands towards students who are passionate about global social impact. Your direction seems a bit more commercial which is why I’m noting your odds of acceptance a bit lower. I encourage you to expand your target list and make sure you have clear goals that will enable you to answer why MBA? why now? and why at this program.
    All the best.
