I’d consider you to be on the border between regular MBA and EMBA
. You’d be a potential fit in some programs in each category.
If your preference is for a regular MBA, I believe you would be a good age (on the older end of the average range) for programs that welcome more experienced applicants, Kellogg being a key example. Others are Ross and Darden. Your Chilean nationality and regional experience would be a plus, as would your airline industry background, all points of diversity for such programs. European programs also tend to trend older, so INSEAD and IMD or others might be good to consider if you are interested.
Part of the EMBA equation is the nature of your work experience. The EMBA adcoms want to see real hands-on managerial experience, with commensurate responsibilities and scope of accountability and decision making. I can’t tell from your message whether you have this. If you do, then you would be a viable applicant for EMBA programs that are open to relatively younger managers, such as Columbia. Overall you’re on the young side for an EMBA.
One option might be to apply to programs in both categories (though obviously not at the same school).
