Thanks for your post. You do have a very strong candidacy. For your application, I recommend you read this case study of an Indian engineer who was accepted into a top MBA program. It should provide insight for your application: http://www.stacyblackman.com/comprehens ... ies/case2/

Dear SBC

Appreciate your effort in looking into my profile however I don't see a relevance with the case study shared. As a matter of fact, I have no technical experience even in the past and especially the last 3 years focused only on business development, business relationship and account management. I will schedule the phone consultation to discuss with you in detail

Dear SBC
Thanks for your advise. In the interim I am getting a offer from a small company (250 M revenue part of a 6 Billion large conglomerate) to head business development for 3 industry vertical across NA (USA/Canada/Mexico). Currently I am working for a 100 Billion conglomerate and my employer does abour 15 Billion in annual revenue. How does this switch play out interms of my prospect for Sloan fellow. My driver to change job for next 1 year is to work for a small company where I can create a practice from scratch ( to get the real entrepreneurial experience compared to large company). Please suggest if it has any bearings to my Sloan Fellow prospect
