American Working in India Looking for International MBA


depreus
I am looking to get entrance into a well respected MBA program, preferably at an internationally minded (diverse, metropolitan) University. I had a 2.9 GPA from a respectable but not elite public American university. My background is Hispanic and I am fluent in Spanish, majored in International Studies (focused on politics and economics) as well as Portuguese.

I have studied abroad in Brazil, am fluent in Portuguese and strong in French (9 years + 2 exchanges) and experienced success as a salesperson in AIESEC the international student organization.

Since then I have been working in Mumbai, India in Enterprise Sales and Marketing for an Enterprise Mobility Tech Company (sort of a start up). I have yet to take the GMAT but have hope to score around 650 with a chance at above 700. I was a national merit scholar for scoring in the top 1 percent in the PSAT but have had varying results due in practice GMATs due to rust.

What International European University will accept a subpar GPA from an internationally experienced American Salesperson that is willing to pay without scholarship assistance and can speak both Spanish and Portuguese?

Have left the door open to anywhere in the world but would be interested in any Romance language speaking country as well as the UK.

I think you should apply to the likes of Insead, HEC Paris, Oxbridge, LSB,IE, IESE, U of Michigan, CMU, UVa, Tuck and other top schools in US/UK. You seem to have a good international work experience. If you can land your GMAT in the ballpark and write crisp essays you gotta have a good chance.

I would start by figuring out what your career goals are and then figure out what schools to apply to based on that. For instance if you wanted to work in Spain after graduation look at the Spanish schools like IE or ESADE.

The 2.9 GPA will raise eyebrows, but a stronger-than-average GMAT score would help alleviate fears.
