If you get a 750 or more you INSEAD would be a stretch, but NBS and NUS would be feasible.

You need to clarify your goal. Think in terms of what do you want to do and the industry you want to do it in.

Best,
Linda

Most MiM programs are aimed at people very early in their careers (excludes Sloan Fellows) usually less than two years of work experience at matriculation so you may already be too advanced for that kind of a program. They are one year programs that give a strong foundation in business and general management, but don't usually allow for the deep dive into a particularly area of business that many MBA's allow for. You need to check with the schools individually to see if your level of work experience is too much for them.

Probably the best known programs are Duke, LBS, and ISB.

Best,
Linda
