Two questions for you first:

2. Which schools are you looking at?

Sooo, no EMBA programs?
:)

You could consider them if you could get some sponsorship, but you are definitely young enough to do full-time programs as well.

For Canada, your GMAT is about 30-40 points lower than average for most top Canadian skills, but your experience can make up for it, and Canadian schools don't seem to be such "Sticklers" for the GMAT Sooooo: Rotman, Ivery, Queens McGill, Sauder. Just try and make up for it in other ways.

The case in Australia is similar. You have Melbourne Sidney, Adelaide, Swinburne... all of which you can likely get accepted to.

Hope this helps!

How about AGSM at Australia, is it harder to get in at AGSM than at MBS (Keeping every other factors constant). I learned that AGSM is a better school than MBS

It is a more prestigious program, and average GMAT of class is 652, so yes, a bit harder, I would say.
