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

Sachin

Hi Sachin,

I'd say your biggest weaknesses are your GMAT and your extracurriculars. Your age is less of an issue for part-time programs. As for whether you should go for part time or executive, I'd say that depends on your goals/situation. It's usually pretty tough to get admissions in a part time program unless you are employed in the US and ideally local to the school (or have the ability to transfer your job near the school) -- is that the case? If you're planning to quit your job and just be a part time student, that would be a tough sell. Part-time programs are better for those who wish to switch careers, whereas executive programs are better suited for those in management or senior management positions who wish to rise to general management/executive levels within their company/field. But I think at this stage, part time makes sense for you, assuming you're already living and working the US.

With a 640 GMAT, I think Booth part time program may be a stretch. Even NYU may be difficult. Tepper is a possibility. It is good that your quant score is so strong (that is weighted more heavily), but it will be difficult to overlook your low overall score. It doesn't seem that retaking the GMAT at this point makes any sense - you've scored quite consistently in the past and you don't want to waste time on that. I might suggest you lower your expectations in terms of what tier program you can get into.

Good luck,
Mili
