        Hi there,

        thank you for your question. I think you have done a great job in reflecting where and why you want to do a Master in Management. By this, you found a selection of business schools whose profiles meet your criteria so that a Master in Management will help you achieve your career goals.

        I also want to congratulate you to your records. Your cv looks great and a GMAT score of 750 is awesome. Since you mentioned that HEC is your favorite and since I know that HEC emphasizes a lot academic records, I recommend you to keep on working on your final grade so that you keep or even increase your level. In general, however, I think your cv is great and your chances of becoming accepted should very high.

        Keep two more things in mind, however: First, fill out the application carefully. Specifically, take your time to work hard on the essays if the schools require them. Second, prepare well for the interview if the schools conduct them. Here the schools want to test, how well reflected you are, if you know, for instance, why you are doing a Master in Management, why a school should accept you and how you could contribute to the class. The school may also ask you about your perspective on management and leadership, how important that is in your eyes, and why. Finally, the schools may want to know your business plan how you want to finance your studies.

        Best wishes
        Thomas

            Hi again,

            I cannot tell you whether HEC is the best option for you since only you can evaluate that. I can say, however, that your rationale makes sense to me and that HEC clearly is a great option.

            What I recomend you, just to become safer in your decision, is getting in contact with HEC and some other schools. Let the admissions people know about your career plan and see how they react. Also ask them to bring you in contact with current students and alumni - for instance, people with your nationality - so that you can interview them.

            By this you get two sorts of valuable information: First, you (idealy at least) get the answers you are looking for from the admissions people (and first hand information from students and alumni). Second, you also get meta-information on how well, competent, friendly, and customer-oriented the schools treat you. It may be the best school in the world but if you don't feel comfortable there... it may not be worth the investment.

            Overall, I am sure you have selected great schools. But now it is about the finegrained nuances that may swing your decision more towards one or the other school. And that's the moment when you interact with people or even visit the campuses. And keeping more than one school in your final selection is always better than focussing only on one.

            Best wishes
            Thomas
