01dynamic,
Your verbal score will be a concern to these business schools, even given that part-time programs are generally less selective, but your professional experience looks strong. The fact that you are an 'Indian IT male' also works against you since the top programs need to keep a balance of different profiles across their classes yet receive a huge number of applicants from your pool. But you are basically competitive so if you execute well you have a solid chance. Feel free to send me your resume (paulbodine@yahoo.com) for a closer look.

Paul,

I am in manufacturing / operations not in IT; all of my experience is in US- implementing change and changing organization culture and fundamentals. Thats the reason my company is moving me into next department (with approx 140 direct/indirect reports). I am planning to major in Entrepreneurship and General Management. What are your thoughts on this?

Thanks

01dynamic,
The fact that you are in operations rather than IT slightly differentiates you from other male Indian applicants, but still leaves you with the challenge of belonging to an applicant pool that is quite 'oversubscribed' relative to the slots available to it at any given top schools. That said, your leadership profile is quite impressive and is the kind of thing that might motivate the schools to choose you vis-a-vis other Indian male applicants. Hope this helps.

Hi 01Dynamic,

Your profile is strong for part-time program at both B-SChools (you have listed). I am assuming you have PR status. If yes, then you would be considered as a local/domestic candidate. So you should be fine on the GMAT score given you have a strong work experience (of starting your own business).

Good luck!!!
