Hello everyone!

Can you please help me in identifying the schools that I should target based on my profile and career goals? I plan to start my MBA in Fall 2015.

Brazilian, male, 30 years, gmat 680 (I may retake the test to improve it), business administration and accounting degree (volunteer work during the graduation), around 7 years of working experience in big four companies in audit (Multinational were my main clients), and now I’m international auditor in an Swedish multinational company, in the Brazilian plant. I would love to make a small move in my career for consultancy or to work with strategy field after the MBA, and also I want to work abroad after the mba. I was considering the following schools and I would love your opinions about the best options to my profile.

Warwick
Cranfield
Cass
LBS (I believe is out of my range)
Imperial College London

I'm prefer study in UK however I'm totally open for other programs and countries, as McGill (Canada) RSM (Netherlands) IE (Spain).

I would love to stay abroad a few years after the graduation to have this international exposure, and after that come back to Brazil.

What do you guys suggest?

Thank you all for the attention.

Best regards,

Ricardo

Ricardo--

Brazil is under-represented in b-schools that you list, so it's likely your 7 years of work experience will be attractive at your targets. I agree that LBS may be a stretch, but I would encourage you to apply since it's always good to have a stretch school in the mix. Plus, you never know if your story will resonate with them or not. Perhaps they need someone like you to round out the class. A 680 GMAT is nothing to sneeze at, and is well within the 80% range of all your targets, so in theory, people like you get in all the time at these schools. The key will be in bringing out the aspects of your story which will make the best case for your admission. We can actually help you do exactly that, so let us know if we can be helpful when the time comes.
