Hi, Dheeraj. The programs that you mentioned are all aiming at students with 4 or 5 years of experience, so they don't seem like a good fit to me. In addition, the PE goal is oversubscribed, so only those with unique connections to the industry, truly exceptional profiles, or past entrepreneurial success tend to meet with success in stating it as a goal. I recommend you consider executive education options plus the "Fellows" programs: Stanford's Sloan Masters
, MIT's Sloan Fellows
, LBS's Sloan Masters
, and Nanyang Fellows for example, which are aimed at more experienced professionals who want to immerse in a full-time program.
