Anyone here for 2012 intake? Others please help.....


egunner

Hi. I am planning for Sept/Oct 2012 intake. I am from India. Following is my profile :
Experience : 3 years ( By April'12) ,
Couple of months short of 3 years by the time of application.
Field : IT Industry.
Role : Developer ( Led and mentored my Juniors for past 8 months. Now handling 2 projects' development. Expecting a more senior position in 3-4 months)
Target Universities : Bradford, Nottingham,Strathclyde, Birmingham, Aston, Southampton & Sheffield.
IELTS : Yet to take
GMAT : Impossible to take.
Academic Records: Good

I have almost made up my mind of doing my MBA next year.( I cannot postpone it further).
I have zeroed in on UK becoz i cannot take my GMAT(US & Canada ruled out). Also i am looking for quality MBA program to hone my managerial skills. I am pretty much open about returning back to India upon completion of MBA (Unless i get a really good job over there), so i am not very much concerned about PSW abolition.

Is my profile good enough for the above listed universities?

Will the lack of completion of 3 years( by 2-3 months) at the time of application affect my chances ?
Are there any other Univs which i should try? Kindly help me narrow the list to 3-4 univs so that i can apply for the best ones.

Please help me out.
Any suggestions are gladly welcome.
Fellow IT engineers and 2012 aspirants please join.

Thanks in advance to one and all.

Your managerial experience would be the key; and how you perform in the telephonic interviews will determine the outcome of your applications. No need to worry, give it your best shot and you target unis will be well within your range. You can also try in Leeds. Best of luck!

Thanks Asif...
Btw congratulations for your Birmingham admission...Plz keep sharing your experiences and market news in the forum. Thanks.
I wanted to know whether I should have 3 years experience at the time of application or joining ? As i said i d be completing 3 years only by April end. So that leaves me 2-3 months short of 3 years by the time of application. How much of a problem is this for the above mentioned universities? How is it for Birmingham? Any idea?

It is ideal to have three years of work experience at the time of application to UK unis, but if it is short by one or two months then it probably depends on how the admission tutors consider it. As I mentioned before, it is the quality of the application and the quality of the work exp. that makes for a bigger factor. All unis will tell you the same; including Birmingham.

Yes, here.
Got a conditional offer from bradford (need gmat :( ) and going to apply for nottingham, henley (after I got good gmat).
Targeted Bradford, so I hope I will pass the GMAT with a good score.
