Hi

I am a 31 y/o (32.5 years by matriculation) Indian male planning to apply H/W/S in R2. Following is a summary of my profile:

Undergrad: Bachelor's in Engineering from a top 10 college in India (67%)

Postgrad: Master's in Management Studies with specialisation in Finance (67%)

GMAT1 : 640 (Q46, V34), AWA 4.5
GMAT2 : 700 (Q50, V35), AWA 5.5

Prof Qualifications: Passed CFA Level I, would clear Level II by matriculation

Work Experience: Total 87 months by matriculation
- 24 months with largest infrastructure utility in India as Assistant Manager - stratefy & business planning - handled enginnering as well as commercial aspects of business - managed a division with 200 employees for a year - earned appreciation certificates from management for achieveing targets
- Manager with consulting arm of India's largest rating agency - worked in mostly in infrastructure domain - was the top rated employee in the division - worked with Indian as well as overseas clients
- Associate Vice President with a private equity firm focusing on Indian markets - worked on investment evaluation as well as fund raising - travelled to 5 countries for investor meetings and road shows - earned appreciation from investors and management for excellent fund models

Extra Curriculars:
- Actively engaged with several NGOs through an associate foundation of my employer
- Several other community activities as well
- Won numerous competitions and been president of a club in my postgrad college

Goals Post MBA: Move from India focused fund to a global fund catering to emerging economies

Request you to provide a feedback on how does my profile stand for H/W/S. My key concern is that am I too old, specifically for H and S?? Also, should I retake GMAT to improve my score or is it sufficient?

You are right to be concerned: H/S/W aim their traditional MBA programs at 26-28 year olds and will definitely question whether you will fit into this class or can learn from any of the (much younger and less experienced) students. In addition to Executive Education options, I recommend you consider Stanford's Sloan Masters program instead (or MIT's Sloan Fellows), which is a full-time program for more experienced managers.
