Hello,

I think the IIM-B EPGP program sounds ideal for you, and it would probably be on-par. ISB I’d consider a reasonable reach, as you’re facing a broader applicant pool there. The challenge will be to differentiate yourself in your application, since you are in an over-represented industry.

As for the Emory program, it depends on how badly you want the internship. If you are good at proactively networking and building your own opportunities, you might well be fine without it. And vice versa. If you’re interested in shorter programs, I suggest looking at some of the European programs – I’m not sure offhand which are best in product management, but many offer short programs with some type of immersion if not actual internship.
