Why is Profile evaluation Important?
Profile Evaluation is the first step to selecting the best matching MBA or Master’s programmes.
The value of a profile evaluation
The purpose of a profile evaluation is that an expert provides you with feedback about whether you meet the standard requirements for admission to graduate admission programmes in your desired field of study. Of course some of the requirements are easy to understand, but others are more complicated – how do you measure leadership potential, what counts for work experience, whether your career progression good enough, etc.
A profile evaluation will help you understand:
- Are you currently eligible for graduate studies?
- Should you pursue an MBA or a Master’s programme?
- What kind of MBA programmes should you target in order to achieve your professional goals?
- What are your chances of being admitted?
- Which parts of your profile should you improve before applying?
- Which is the most effective application strategy given your strengths?
An expert evaluation of your academic and professional profile is a must for defining what types of programmes will be best for you. Many facts are taken into consideration during the evaluation: your academic background and performance, your professional experience and career progression, your achievements, awards and hobbies, failures and setbacks you have undergone and your test scores (if available). An essential part of the profile evaluation concerns your goals, what you expect to get from your studies and how they will help your future.
Make sure that you provide the most accurate and up-to-date information that is required for a profile evaluation. Be as specific as possible and provide details, especially about your career goals and your job responsibilities and progression. This is important so that you can receive accurate and relevant feedback.
