35 year Male/12 experience in IT/GMAT 640 PART-TIME MBA [#permalink] New post 10 Feb 2013, 08:11
Hi Admissionado,

Thanks for great service.

I would appreciate if you can evaluate my profile and guide me.

I have B.E (State University) and M.Tech in Engineering (IIT - one of the top Indian school) .
Academics are good
BE -> top 5 out of 90 members of class
ME -> GPA 9.33/10
Experience ->
1 year experience in India as Sr. Software Engineer
11 years experience in USA as Technical Lead leading 5-6 people, Architect and Sr Business Analyst. At present I am working as Sr Busingess analyst in Investment banking.

Unfortunately my extracurricular activities are almost nil. (Just member of the sports club for 4 years and playing Racquet Ball and Ping pong ).

I wrote GMAT 4 times.. 610,610,640, and 610 ..Highest score I got was 640. My Quant skills are very good, but verbal is killing me. I got 50/51 in Quant.
I am aiming for good Part-time MBA schools in USA. (NY Stern, Booth, Tepper, etc.). I am fine with either MBA finance/Quant or MBA Information Technology.

I see that my age (35) and extracurricular activities are negative points for me.
Could you please suggest whether I have any chances in Stern, Booth and Tepper. If not, can you suggest other good schools.


Do you suggest part-time MBA right now? or executive MBA after couple of years?.
If I don't do part-time MBA right now, I may consider to do Executive MBA after 2-3 years. If executive MBA is good choice for me, please suggest how to improve my profile in couple of years. I would like to get into managerial position and do the certification in PMP and also complete CFA.

I appreciate your resonse and valuable suggestions.

Regards,
Sachin

Well, the good news first of all is that if you are applying to Part-time/executive programs they are MUCH more flexible on GMAT than full-time programs, and they will look a LOT more at your work experience, so even though your GMAT is relatively low, it is no app-killer. Also if you were to wait a year or three, you would still be in the running. That is up to you depending upon your career and life choices, and I can't really tell you when to apply without having an chat with you (or one of our consultants) and getting to know all of the details of your situation.

The single thing that MOST helps you get into prestigious EMBA and/or part-time programs is company sponsorship. If your company with sponsor you financially and/or promise you a promotion at the end of the MBA your chances go up significantly, so if there is some way for you to secure that, do so.

Otherwise your schools are fine. For P/t EMBA programs I suggest staying in the top 10, and doing what you can to do it with the cooperation of your workplace... I hope this helps out and if you have any further Qs, just drop a line.
