Application & Admission
  • Posted by Abhi goyal on 07/29/19 9:10am

    Hello Mr. Thomas,
    This is Abhi Goyal from India. I really want to evaluate my chances of getting into top 10 B- schools for MIM. First of all, let me give you an idea of my overall profile:

    1. 10th- 7 CGPA
    2. 12th Commerce- 82% (with 94 in Accounting)
    3. Graduation in B.Com- 62%
    4. Having 2 certificates of training in IT and Orientation Course of 15 days each.
    5. My plus points: I'm really good at taxation, accounting, business and presentation
    6. Hobbies: Cricket and Singing mostly. I am having certificates signed by the Collector of my city regarding good performance in both.
    7. Having no work ex yet.
    8. GMAT 650
      The reason behind my low GPA in graduation is that First, I had been preparing for Chartered Accountant along with B.Com. Secondly, the gradings are really tough at my university. Though the university is not that reputed also.
      Based on this profile what are my chances of getting into top 10 B-Schools. If not in the top 10 then what are the average colleges can I get into, please suggest me some names.

                                                       Thank you

    Hello,

    we don't evaluate profiles. But we provide information on how you can evaluate your profile yourself.

    (1) In the survey the MIM - Entry requirements for the Master in Management you learn about the admissions criteria that 53 international MIM programs apply to select their students.

    (2) In the eBook Business Masters - How you find the best Master in Management or MBA we provide a step-by-step procedure on finding out, which school and program best fits your profile.

    Best wishes,

    Hi Thomas

    I want to ask you which is best EDHEC MIM Financial Economics which is a 3 year course pr Skema MIM FMI which is a 2 year course?Is going for 3 year good option?

    Hi there,

    there is no general answer to your question. For some people, the EDHEC MIM may be the best option while for others the SKEMA MIM is the best. It depends on your personal goals (e.g., your career goals).

    I give you an example: If you are interested in working for a specific employer or in a specific industry after graduation and if no such employer recruits at one of the two campuses... then it may be a wonderful program but not the best for you.

    Another example: You may want to build up specialist knowledge and competence in a specific area such as digital marketing because it is interesting for you and because you see your personal future in this area - and if a great program does not offer courses here... then it may not be the best program for you.

    So, the trick is to analyze your goals (e.g, what you want to do after graduation, what knowledge you want to build up, which netwokrs you want to build etc.) and then analyze programs as to which provides you with the best benefits to reach your goals. Tnen you need to compare this with your resources (e..g, GMAT score, financial resources etc.) and then you have your best program. So far for the theory.

    In practice, I suggest a step-by-step procedure and you find it outlined in my eBook Business Masters - How you find the best Master in Management or MBA. So if you need more help for your decision I advise you to carefully work through this ebook for an afternoon and follow my instructions there.

    Best wishes,
    Thomas

      My career goal is to become a professional stock trader and work as a trader in a big firm.Which Master's would be ideal?

    Hi there,

    thank you for reaching out.

    My recommendation is to identify some of your favorite employers (or their competitors) first and then anayze schools' websites (e.g., the Master in Management pages) as to companies recruiting on campus.

    The second approach is to get in contact with these employers and simply ask where they recruit.

    Best wishes,
    Thomas

    Hi Thomas,
    You are doing a great job here, thank you for that.
    I have a similar profile as the guy above, the only difference is that i gave GRE,scored 302 and also i have a work experience of 2+ years from a reputed MNC.
    I'm aiming for SKEMA MIM, as it fits best with my expectation but i'm in a dilemma, i don't know whether i should go with my current GRE score or retake the exam.

    Hello,

    I have a simple tip for you. Why don't you contact the SKEMA admissions office and simply ask them? Tell them that you are interested in their MIM (every school likes to hear that) and about your score - and just ask what they would recommend you.

    If you like, you can tell them that Thomas Graf from MIM Compass recommended you to do this.
    Best wishes,
    Thomas
