Can someone advise the colleges with GMAT Score of 600(Q47,V27) AWA 4.0 IR 8

Worked as a software engineer at Tata Consultancy Services and now working at Hewlett-Packard Enterprise with a total of 3 years experience (India).

Traveled to Gothenburg,Sweden for a month on work purpose.

Very good with academics from school days with 90% above.
Participated in state level debate competitions.

I want to pursue my MBA with specialization in Consulting and Technology field.

Both the Mason and Eccles programs are decent. All other things being equal, your GMAT score will put you at a disadvantage, even if you fall within the general mid-range of these schools' accepted MBAs.

This is why: you'll be compared to other applicants with similar backgrounds as you, namely those from India who have experience as software engineers - and that applicant class tends to have above-average GMAT scores.

RSM is also a good school, but post-MBA placements in the Netherlands will be challenging without Dutch language skills.

NR16,

If you are interested in W&M MBA then I would encourage you to email Amanda Barth.

P.S - it would be difficult to get into consulting without a big brand school name. With your 600 GMAT getting into a big brand school will be tough. Have a realistic Plan B incase your Plan A of getting into Consulting doesn't work out.

Hi Duncan,

Could you please provide feedback on EDHEC, ESSEC and MIP.

I am not familiar either with French or Italian but will learn if it is necessary for placements after MBA.

I am interested in specializing in Leadership.

Thanks in advance...

I can't add anything that you can't find my searching the board. Of course you will need to speak the language. I'm not really sure what you mean about leadership.

For those countries, yes, in general MBA-level positions will require business fluency in the local language. However, there are some exceptions, for instance if you landed an internationally-facing position with a multinational, or a firm that dealt exclusively with English-speaking clients, but these jobs tend to be rare.

... and it usually takes more than a year to gain that kind of language fluency -- especially if you're primarily focused on something else during that year (full-time studies, for instance...)

I guess this depends on whether you speak better French or Italian. EDHEC gets great salaries but MiP is slightly better at getting people into jobs quickly.

I don't really think that either of these are very probably schools from which to find jobs that don't require the local language. I suggest you either change focus (for example, taken MSc in finance), learn the local language (best option, considering your background, would be to learn German and then take an MSc taught in German) or aim for a country where English is the business language.
