Hi,
Pls let me know what colleges should I target and should I got for 1 year MBA or 2 Year MBA.
I am an Indian /IT/Male. GMAT - 660.

Work Experience - 8+ years with Infosys ( working in US since last 6+ years ). Client - Bank of america. I am leading a team of 5 people in a project for a maintenance project for Bank.

Academics:
B.Tech - NIT Calicut with 65% ( Civil Engg)
10th - 78%
12th - 65%

Extra Curricular:
1) Was President of Cultural association club at College.
2) Hosted many cultural fest at college level.
3) Passionate about cooking. Have taken few cooking courses.
4) Performed on All India Radio.
5) Got 44th position in state level Science Quiz competition.
6) Got many prizes in school for sports( mostly athletics ).
7) Won many prizes in school for Elocution and Recitation competition.

I can try to get some good recommendation from my client managers in US ( Bank of America ). Should I target for 1 year MBA seeing my work experience in Europe colleges or will 2 year MBA be also good for me?.

Also pls let me know if you think below colleges will be good to target seeing my profile.

Hey vikassingh03,

Thanks for reaching out to me. to be honest, I would not plan on going over to Europe for your MBA. The jobs market is not good, and you will not get any type of preferential treatment from any of the governments over there. The UK got rid of their work visa program for anyone getting MBA, a few years back.

If you are already in the US, you should probably stay here. There are a lot more options for you to choose from, of course depending on your geographic area. Also, if you are a green card holder life just got a lot better for you, because no prospective employer will have to pay for your H1 visa.
However, now you are caught in a pair of fingercuffs - you want to enjoy the satisfaction of an MBA, but you have a low GMAT score and you could possibly be a bit older than the average applicant.

Based on what I know, I would tell you to consider applying to part-time programs in the US, located near a city near you.

Respectfully,
Paul Lanzillotti
