Hi vickymancer07,

You have a decent profile and a good corporate exposure. As per your profile and area of interest I would suggest you to target Thunderbird, Perdue, Babson College (Olin) and Haskayne B-School where all you can apply.

I will suggest you to apply which I have suggested above as they have good acceptance rate and employment record. Also get in touch with the alumnus of B-School which you are targeting to know more about the B-School admission procedure.

You would need to cleverly prepare yourself for questions like the reasons you want to switch from IT to management, your rationale behind applying for a specific B school, so on and so forth.

The next step for you is to focus more on your application essays and recommendations for these Business Schools.

Please visit http://tinyurl.com/cnpsl4a to see more about online Essay Evaluation and Interview Preparation.

If you happen to be based in Mumbai, you can attend a MBA workshop by the alumnus of ISB along with alumnus of various top global B-Schools during the dates mentioned in this linkshttp://tinyurl.com/cjy62uh

Feel free to post any other query or concern that you might have.

Cheers!!
Neha Singh

Hi Vicky,

With the given information, you may target following b-schools in Asia: HKUST, IIM-C, NUS & Uni. of Hong Kong. As you have a low GMAT score, therefore I would suggest you to submit strong application essays and showcase leadership skills, achievements at work place, professionalism, etc during the final interviews. As these two are the deciding factors in b-school admission, so I would recommend you take the expertise guidance on drafting essays and preparing for interviews.

Let me know in case of any assistance required. You may PM your details for free profile evaluation or selection of b-school.

Regards
Alisha
