Hello everyone.
I would like to get some reviews on my profile and would like to understand what are my chances of getting into the mentioned business schools. I will start with my demographics. I am a 28 years old Indian engineering graduate. I have been associated with the Indian space research organization (ISRO-government space agency of India) since my college life. I have done my intern at one of the ISRO centers and joined one of their centers. Currently, I have been working as an engineer at ISRO for 6 years and leading/supervising a team of 15 technicians. I am also leading a separate team of 7 technicians and engineers for advanced R&D. I have received one promotion during my time at ISRO. On the technical side I have developed new processes related to assembly as well, which are currently being used.
Apart from this, I am attracted to finance and to satisfy my curiosity, I took a few online courses related to finance on Coursera, and I have cleared CFA level 1 and currently pursuing CFA level 2. I have been actively trading and participating in Indian stock markets in derivatives. (Personal investment).
ECs: I developed my passion for astrophotography during my undergrad years. I have helped a few people in setting up their astrophotography rig and taught them know how of how to get started with astrophotography.
Post-MBA goals: my short-term post-MBA goal would be to work for management and IT consulting firms or to get into leadership development programs at technology firms. My long-term goal is to go for leadership roles at a tech firm or large-scale manufacturing firm.
