Please evaluate / guide - older applicant - thanks a lot! [#permalink] New post 12 Nov 2009, 04:35
Hi,

Am deep in my search for the right MBA, but am getting stuck a bit owing to my oddish profile for an MBA applicant, in terms of age / exp (34 years of age, 11+ years of experience), and am hoping that you'll be able to help me out in identifying the right MBA programs I should be focusing on.

In brief, my profile is as below:
11+ years of experience in IT, in diverse roles ranging from software development to business development. 4.5 years of experience spread over US and Europe (primarily UK). GMAT 770 / 6.0. UG Mechanical Engineering - 70.8% from India (1998). Good EC in UG, but not much after then (other than having published English poetry in bits and pieces, and rudimentary volunteer work).

Primary objectives from MBA: Gain good in-depth knowledge of the financial and strategic planning aspects of business management.

Ideal job post MBA: Corporate Strategy Planning in global IT firm (alternative: strategy consulting with global techno-business consulting firm).

Looking forward to your help! Thanks much!

You're not an odd fit for an executive MBA -- in fact, you're the kind of person that would be a great fit for an executive MBA - experienced professionals who are looking to stay in their industry but who are wanting to transition from a technical/analytical position to a managerial/business career track.

As for specific programs, there's quite a number out there - I suggest you do your research first on executive programs (start with the rankings publications to get a brief handle on the tiers of schools) and narrow your list from there.
