Extra Curricular : Actively participated in many College events and Alumni association. Participated in Volunteer services in my Company.

Target Programs : Looking for Executive MBA from Duke, Ross. Also looking for some suggestions. I am not interested in full time 2 year course, though one year Kellogg may be my wish. But with the current GMAT I doubt. Should I retake GMAT?

Post MBA- Interested in Strategic consultancy, and/or progress my carrier to Executive Management.

MY Questions are: What are my best fit Programs and what I can do to maximize, either GMAT wise or application wise.

Your age and level of experience has pretty much placed you beyond the traditional programs, even Kellogg's 1-year. I recommend going with the EMBAs or trying for the one-year full-time Sloan Fellows programs at Stanford or MIT. If you can boost your GMAT by 20 points or so, I do think it would help these applications.
In terms of EMBA programs, I suggest you check into UNC, USC, and Emory. The GMAT is less important for these programs, but a strong one does help an application differentiate from the many of similar industry and experience level. Your essays will also need to do that for you!
