You really should look into EMBA programs, and Duke has one of the best. Unless you are dead set on going full time there are many advantages you have in doing the EMBA. 1) your GMAT will not matter as much. Since Duke and all other schools do not have to include EMBA applicant stats in their rankings submissions. For this reason, your liklihood of admission is higher with EMBA. 2) you have more than 10 years of progressively responsible experience. The EMBA programs become within reach with this kind of WE. 3) you can keep your Job and in many cases, also get your employer to foot some or all of the bill for B-school.

Thanks Bryant! After weighing all options, EMBA fits best to my current situation. The reason I was looking for 1 year full time was that I had heard/seen getting into Management stream is very difficult with Part-time/ and even EMBA. So, may be I had to do little more digging. After spending good amount, I don't want this to be a wash. What have you to say on this ?

the key is how your target school's career service center handles EMBA candidates. If they open the access to the same recruiting schedule that is available to the full time students, you are in business, if not, you should inquire about the career services for EMBAs. This is a hot button right now in top schools, as the full time students are complaining that the EMBA and part time students are taking job opportunities away. Schools who have this issue handled well are more desirable for those looking to change jobs post EMBA.

By the way, will your current company be footing the bill for your degree, or will you shoulder the financial investment personally?
