Thank you for the reply.

Why MBA - short note?
My eperience with multiple products, processes and organizations has given me a hoilstic view decision making science. The basic parameters of decision making process are based on value of the product, risk associated with the decision and required quality of the decision. Some of the large corporations have the expertise and knowledge to take sensitive decisions but mostly they spend huge time and money on significantly smaller decisions, and smaller corporations take bigger decisions based on limited knowledge and time available. I think I can build a business case around this and start my entrepreneural journey and looking at MBA degree to give me that launching pad.
I am wokring on process improvement based on this idea in my current job as an additional responsibility, and I am convinced that there is larger potential in the market to convert this into successful business case. And with my technical expertise I can virtually handle most of the products in the market.


Back to the basics. As you notice, I have already crossed the limit to do 2 year MBA, i will be 35 this year. So my bets are on 1 year MBA or EMBA with entrepreneurship and leadership as core and I will happy to have technology as an alternative. Preference is to 1 year MBA as it opens door to some of the consulting houses and quicker to pass through.
Target schools:
IMD (Swiss Alps) - full time
INSEAD (French elite) - full time
Cranfield Judge (UK) - fulltime
Bath school of management (UK) - fulltime

Searching some of the EMBA's in US market and europe market.

Does this sound convincing enough?

Dear Amol,
Okay great! Thanks for the extra words. I think your profile looks pretty good. You have done a LOOOOT of stuff, including leadership recruiting and tons of other great achievements. I also totally agree with your plan of apply to one-year MBAs and EMBAs. I think that probably the best strategy you could take would be to apply to a mix of one-year MBAs (mostly in Europe, maybe Asia too if you are interested) and EMBAs that fit your needs.

For some of the European programs (IMD and INSEAD) you can apply NOW, Insead for the January intake, and if you are ready to go, I'd definitely suggest getting started as soon as you can.

As for your post MBA plan, it sounds overall plausible, but something you definitely need to work on in both detail and concreteness, to make it into a good "Why MBA" story.

Finally, as a sort of side point, you might want to think about reworking your resume. There are quite a bit of English mistakes, but also I feel that you can get a lot more out of the work you have done by reworking your resume.

Wish you all the best, and if you have any more questions, I'd be happy to help out.

Thank you Jon for your words.

I completely agree with you on the CV reformatting and Essay's. I was always an avarage student in languages, to add that short coming I am speaking with french and Norwegians in english for the last 2-3 years, where one has to forget grammer and try to make everything in simple present tense. However, I will try to rectify them as much as I can.

The application process for IMD and INSEAD is just started, I hope I will hit the May 20 deadline.
