MBA from UK


Sandyyy
Hi

I’m Sandeep. I’m interested in doing my MBA from the UK. My profile is as follows:
- 7 years 10 months experience in IT
- Working as a Solutions Architect in Pre-sales with DXC Technology (formed by merger of CSC & HPE)
- Working on Cloud Projects
- Have done AWS, ITIL and IBM AIX certifications
- GMAT- 640
- I have learned German and Spanish

- Non-profit experience: I have been an active member of a committee that runs a local girls school and have been a part of volunteering work for years.

- I also happen to have some experience in Marketing as I have done some projects (unpaid, freelance basis) in a startup that focuses on marketing and brand management.

I will be applying for 2019 intake.

So far my options are :

Alliance Manchester Business School (my top priority)
Imperial College Business School
Edinburgh University Business School

I’m confused at the moment and disappointed too as I can’t apply to the some other good business schools because of my low GMAT. I can’t retake it as I got 640 in my fourth attempt.
Please help!

Thanks

Hi Duncan

Thanks for your input.

With my profile that I have mentioned above, what do you think are my chances of getting a call from any of them ?

Your GMAT is around the average for those schools, and your length work experience helps. You are part of a large group of Indian men in IT who are over-represented in the applicant pool, so it's hard. In particular Edinburgh will want to see leadership experience, not just work experience. You will be a stronger candidate if you apply early. Maybe consider Bath, Durham or Lancaster as alternatives.
