Thank you Jennifer,
am i reading this correctly that the gmat is optional if microenonomics was done which i did at universityhttp://mitsloan.mit.edu/fellows/admissi ... rocess.php
also my dad was an MIT alumni. not sure if that helps in anyway. the cost factor is infact very deterring at 167K
the return on investment is difficult to justify and it may take 10 years or more to recover this
also would love to hear your opinion if i would fit in to this type of class profile. I do have global experience as i manage an offshore team and an onsite team but its only 5 people in the team
anyway i will definitely explore this option
Yes, you are reading that correctly about the microeconomics (or calculus, etc.) exempting applicants from the GMAT/GRE. The fact that your father is an alumnus of MIT can be helpful to your application, yes, but it won't get you in if they do not feel you are ready and will contribute to the class.
Executive MBA programs allow you to continue your current role and study on weekends or for intensive study periods instead of leaving your role for a year, so I do still recommend that you consider them as well.
