Hello,
Came across your forum a couple of days ago. Hope you can help me shortlist schools where I stand a reasonable chance of getting accepted.

MY PROFILE : Age 33, Indian Male
EDUCATION : High School: 75.2 %
Senior Secondary School: 75.6 %
Bachelors in Mechanical Engineering from a Government College with 71 % aggregate.
GMAT SCORE : Total 700 ( Q 49, V 35)
WORK EXPERIENCE: 9 years of total work experience with a Top Indian IT MNC (Infosys). Was deputed in the USA to work for a top US Bank (client) for 6 years. Have been consulting for that US bank in the role of a Project/Change Manager, managing projects in the International portfolio (EMEA, APAC).

I have shortlisted a few schools:
US: Fuqua (duke), Johnson (Cornell), Ross (Michigan), Kellogg ( accelerated MBA)
India: ISB, IIM-Lucknow (Exec MBA)

POST MBA Concentrations : Consulting, Strategy, General Mgmt.

Could you please evaluate my candidacy for the above schools and suggest more schools based on my profile?

You have a competitive profile for ISB, IE, Fuqua, Johnson, and Ross. Kellogg is a stretch. I'm not sure about IIM. You've chosen your programs well.

Best,
Linda

Linda,
Thanks for your response.
I am more inclined towards 1 year accelerated MBA programs, given my work experience/age.
Could you please suggest programs suited to my profile?
Also, which round is the best to apply in terms of chances of getting accepted, scholarships etc?

Thanks!

Given your goals and education, look into INSEAD, IMD, LBS, and Cambridge Judge. For timing, please see, When to Apply.
