Hello, and sorry for the notable delay!

Congrats on your strong GMAT and your work experience. It seems that you have good experience in mentoring and leading team initiatives, which is important for business schools to see. You want to make your resume and essays as descriptive as possible so that they can see you work in a business setting efficiently, provide value to your team and firm, and simultaneously pursue your own professional goals. You can more descriptively address these goals in your essays as well.

It's difficult to say what the best schools would be without having more information on your specific accomplishments, and a bit more on the focus of your MBA. You should look for programs with strong operations specializations and faculty since this is a clear area of focus for you. While important to have a variety of schools in your application pool, be careful to not overextend yourself, and to focus on the programs that are most in line with your own goals and interests.

Thanks, and good luck!

Hello! Thanks for the reply. Better late than never :)
I have some more questions infact :
1. What schools are good in CleanTech / Energy space?
2. What companies hire in this space? Do they hire internationals? What positions?

I am considering this as my long term career option. Any ideas on this?
