    Hi!

    I started to look the grad schools recently and i'm trying to draw a detail roadmap for my future master's degree applications.
    Here is my profile, i would be happy if you give me some advises.

    • I was in the top150 in Turkey's College Entrance Exam (among approx. 2 million applicants)
    • I graduated from the one of the top universities in Turkey. (only Francophone university)
    • I took 1 year long French language preparation class
    • My major was Business Administration, i took lessons both in English and French
    • I started the university in 2010 and finally graduated in 2018 with 2.43 gpa (1 year language class, 1 gap year - ouch :/) (Normally it's 5 year with lang class.)
    • I have tremendous experience in terms of internship and part-time work. I've been working at Colgate-Palmolive for last 2 years (internship) and i'll start to work for Amazon in the near future. (full-time job)
    • I had a lot of extracurricular activities, charity works, joined project competitions, started my own business etc.
    • My English level is C1 and French level is B2.
    • I didn't took any GMAT, GRE, SAT, IELTS kind of test before.
    • I can get very good letter of recommendation, especially from my managers/directors.

    My aim is to apply a grad school in France, Belgium or other Francophone universities within 2 years.
    I guess i'm eligible to apply to Master 2 programs in France (i took 239 ECTS - 4 year)
    What should I do next? Should i focus on the schools first? Or test? What do you recommend?
    Assuming I'll get 600 and above in GMAT, what colleges should i apply?

    Thank you in advance,

    Hi there,

    your CV looks very good and your questions are the right ones. What should I do next? How do I approach the whole topic of postgraduate education in management? Which schools shouldI target? etc.

    Please read carefully my eBook "Business Masters - How you find the best Master in Management or MBA". The original title of this eBook in fact was "Roadmap to your Master in Management aned MBA" - and that's exactly what you search for: a step-by-step approach to your Master, in a systematic and strategic way, with a clear goal: that you find the best program for you.

    If you are interested in eligibility and admission criteria, particularly from French schools, you can also read my Survey "The MIM - Entry requirements for the Master in Management".
    Best regards,
    Thomas
