Profile

Age 32

Indian, Male.

GMAT – 670 ( took it in 2016 Oct) (v-32 , Q -50) – Wont have time before the deadline to retake this.





Work ex – 9 YEARS



Co-founder of an ecommerce retail start up - 2012-2014



Lead Consultant - IT strategy Consulting with a Fortune 200 IT Company -2014 – Present

• One of 7 people to be hired for a Consulting role in the last 10 years without an MBA

• Won Multiple internal awards

• Worked with a range of clients across EU and UK and a good international exposure

• Worked with cross cultural teams across geographies

• Promoted Twice in last 7 years

Shortcomings – Relatively low GMAT Score (670) – (v-32 , Q - 50)

Lower UNDER GRAD GPA-6.0 ( hoping this can be offset by the high quant GMAT score)

I imagine you mean a BTech degree rather than an BTEC. You have some shortcomings other than your GMAT and GPA: you're in a highly competitive applicant pool, Indian males in IT with slow career progression and limited supervisory experience. Since you don't mention intriguing goals or extracurricular activities, Schools with lots of classroom discussion and groupwork will be very hesitant about your unbalanced GMAT, especially since it suggests that your consulting experience has been limited in quality.

 Thanks for your response

I have lead many teams in past 4 years (20+ in size) so have a good exposure leading teams
Unfortunately my linguistic skills  in real life do not translate on the GMAT in this case (i'd say i'm quite good amongst people coming from an Indian background)
 Strong international experience in UK and EU for the past 4 years

Looking to leverage my IT skills, Knowledge in the finance regulatory domain to move to a Prod Manangemt role. 
I have strong reccomendations from industry leaders in the UK
I do have an entreprenurial background as well 

DO you think any of the above will help my case and serve as mitigating factors or ami just being to ambitious?


Your response will be much appreciated. 
Regards

These points don't really address the weaknesses I mentioned. I don't think fintech product managers have or need MBAs. Why not take the fintech MSc at a school like 

Henley ICMA , Imperial or Strathclyde?
