I am targeting FT MBA programs in Europe for Fall 2017 and I am primarily looking at following schools because of affordability and location (preferably Germany) -
-- Mannheim Business School; ESMT (Berlin); WHU (Vallendar); HHL (Leipzig); EDHEC
I am an Indian citizen currently working in USA in energy/utility sector as a Software Analyst. I have a total of 3.5 years Full time work experience as of now. I currently have "NO GERMAN LANGUAGE SKILLS". However, i would be taking German classes over the next 6-7 months. I want to work in an energy/tech industry in Europe for a few years and eventually move globally between USA/Europe/India.
My educational credentials are -
-- GMAT (expected 660-680)
-- MS in Software Engineering CGPA 3.56 (US university with 100% scholarship)
Completed various industry level projects during MS.
-- BS in Management Information System (Minor in Computer Science) 3.25 CGPA (US university with 50% scholarship)
Summer internship with a leading Internet Security Company.
-- Certificates on edX by IEEE, IIM Bangalore, Thunderbird School of Global Management.
I have also worked part time as a Class instructor (2 classes with 120 students) as well as an apartment manager (250 tenants) for 2 years during my MS program.
I was actively involved with around 5-6 students cultural and sports clubs while holding leadership positions in 2 of them. I also participated in various voluntary activities for disaster relief management and kids with disabilities.
Do I have any chance of getting into above mentioned schools or should i look into OTHER PROGRAMS ? It will be great if I can secure some sort of funding/scholarship for my MBA program.
Please advise and thank you.
