Hi Scott/Omari,

I had asked about my chances, giving my brief background here...
http://www.gmatclub.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=12259

It will be good if you can just refer to the link above to understand my
situation better.

Now, in my company I'm in a situation where I have to choose between
two alternatives for next 1 year at least.

1. I can work in India itself on a new technology where I'll get to
lead a team & I'll be able to demonstrate my people management as well as
my technical skills.

2. I can work abroad (far east) for couple of months on existing
technology with people there (international experience).
(I have also worked in the US for couple of months through my company
for about a month).

Since my road map is to do MBA from top schools, I want to select the
alternative, that will make my application more stronger & distinct.

I think, being an engineer (IT), I need to distinguish myself from the large
pool of applicants from similar background like mine. Please advice me,
how can I make use of this opportunity...what's the best choice?

Best Regards,
Vivek

Sounds like either experience would be great for you. Nonetheless, you can't beat attaining management experience, both from a career growth and an MBA perspective. Additionally, the fact that you would have the opportunity to work with new technology would be exciting. It sounds like option one might provide you with more wealth to draw from in your application. But that's just based on the info provided.

Ok, I got your point. I went over the choices over the weekend to decide & arrived at the same conclusion.

Thanks a lot for your advice :) this gives me more confidence.

Best Regards,
Vivek
