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
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.
