I have recently taken a transfer within my bank to the
as I will handle global relationships for the bank. I intend to apply in 2014 to schools such as IMD, Insead, Kellogg , LBS, Columbia, Wharton. I have a gmat score of 640 now. I intend to retake the test to push it beyond 720.
My concerns are
- Will I be dinged even after I improve my score because I will be 33-34 years old when I apply.
- I would have had 2 years of quality International workex atleast when I apply.
The reasons why I intend to do an MBA program are
- To take up bigger roles in Banking in NYC/ London such as moving to capital markets, M&A advisory etc.
- To leverage on my knowledge of financial services sector for senior consulting roles.
would appreciate your response.
