Please HELP: GMAT 680 NON-TRADITIONAL PROFILE Indian


Johnathan

Hello everyone, I am currently in a big dilemma regarding school selection. Please go through my profile and tell me what you think. It will be a huge help and I will really appreciate it.

Nationality - Indian Male, 26 yrs
GMAT - 680
Work Experience: roughly 3 years in Brand Consulting
-----------------------
Bachelors Degree - B.Com (that is, a 3 yrs general degree in business and accounting) [2008 - 2011]

2012 - 1 year as a junior staff in Accounts & Strategy department in a Brand Consulting Agency in Mumbai India.

Masters Study - Brand Management and Communications in IED Milano, Italy. [2013-14].

In Italy I did an internship with an Italian Automation MNC and also did project works with Ferrero, Pomellato and Campari.

2014 - Present - Assistant Accounts Manager in the same Brand Consulting Agency.

Possible Recommendations - 1) My current boss (Accounts Manager), 2) CEO of the Italian MNC where I did my internship (it went rather well).

Additional Info - Have some good social work experience (my uni was located in a remote and poverty ridden part of India).
----------------------------

Want to Study - MBA in Europe BUT I am ready to consider other options if funding is available.

Problem - Thanks to the exchange rate, I am broke by western standards. Funding/scholarship is crucial.

Query - Is it possible to get admission in a good MBA program with my profile? Is it possible to get scholarship (significant amount)? I will be happy to take admission in a lower ranked but decent b-school if I get funding.

Please Help!

Thanks

It's possible to get admission to a good MBA, but not a full. Take a look at The sad facts about scholarships http://www.find-mba.com/board/37055

EDHEC will give you a 40% discount (http://www.edhec-mba.com/scholarship-policy/mba-scholarship-policy--2507.kjsp) and TIAS might do something similar.

Perhaps a specialised masters of science degree would be more affordable?

Thanks for your reply Duncan. Are you suggesting a MS in Marketing/Branding? Where can I start looking for good programs?

I made a little list or French options yesterday - http://find-mba.com/board/general-forum/mba-or-masters-43459#post-id-43510 I would also suggest Copenhagen, BI, NHH, Erasmus, WU and U3CM.

Also check the Master in Management options in Germany. The MSc in Management offerings at Mannheim and Cologne can be had for a very good value.

These aren't branding options specifically, but, if you already have experience in the field, perhaps a more general option would be more effective for enhancing your career.
