Your academic stats are competitive, but you only have two years of work experience. That could be an issue at both ISB and INSEAD. As result I think they are both stretch programs. INSEAD is an international school with recruiting ties around the world. It is a major feeder school for consulting companies. Both are excellent for what you want to do.

Best,
Linda
