Profile review: 31F / consumer packaged goods


lucia10

Hi everybody, I am hoping to get some feedback on my profile and which schools I should apply to.

About me: 31, female, from Spain but working in the UK for the past 3 years.

Work experience: 5 years in global consumer packaged goods, I changed companies twice and have had promotions.

Schooling: Good undergraduate school in Spain and then a master degree from a UK school (not a top school). Good performance overall.

Extracurriculars: Some volunteering but nothing special.

GMAT Score: 670 on the first try. I have a retake scheduled for next month.

Goals: After doing my MBA, in the US, UK or Hong Kong, I plan on continuing to work in consumer packaged goods but going into brand management / leadership roles.

Thank you for any advice!

HKU seems like a great idea. With the current troubles, their applications from Europe will be down, and they have tracks with Columbia and LBS: https://www.fbe.hku.hk/mba/fulltime/advantage/london-track

Otherwise, since you are already in the UK, Cranfield or Warwick might make sense?

HKU could be interesting. What do you think of Oxford and how their MBA could fit into my career goals?

Oxford isn't so focussed on fmcg as the schools I suggested.
