Thank you for your posting.

I first want to emphasize that you come from a very competitive demographic -- which means that acceptance rates at the schools you are targeting for a candidate liek you are much lower than the overall acceptance rates. This means that you have to be realistic when you apply to very competitive programs like Insead and NUS. If you want to be in Asia (outside of India), I recommend that you look at the better programs in Australia. HKUST is very competitive to begin with but extremely competitive for Indian engineers.

Good luck.
