I'd say you're in the right range for schools.

If you're looking for one-year programs, focus on the Euro schools - like Cambridge, the ones in Spain (IE, ESADE, IESE - not sure if all of them are one-year), and so forth. Can't think of any real one-year programs in the US off the top of my head.

As for getting a job in India, I have no idea. You probably know more than I do on that.

Good luck with your first fight!
