Aditya,

If you define top MBA programs as "top 10", then I would say that the competition is quite tough. For Indian male IT applicants, it is tougher. You have to score 720+ in order to stand a good chance.

I would recommend any schools ranked below 20 as realistic goals. Apply to a couple of schools ranked 10-20 as a stretch. and ranked close to 50 as a safety school.

Regards,

Hi Aditya,

If you are targeting just the US top 10 programs, it will be a major challenge. You may apply to few of the top Canadian schools and also target the 20-50 schools across the globe. However it will depend on the your essays and recommendations to make it to the interviews. You can get a fair amount of idea about the B-Schools to apply here: http://goo.gl/RZg44t

Hope this helps.

Aditya,
In addition to the answers about the need to increase your GMAT scores, I would like to point out that no US b-school has a January intake other than Columbia Business school. This program is strictly for those people who do not need a summer internship for getting the post MBA jobs.

In Canada, Queen's MBA has a January intake.

Hey there,

One of the things you haven't mentioned is why you want an MBA. Unless you're going to go right back to doing what you were doing, shortened programs aren't going to help you switch things up. Also, a 660 is going to make more reputable shorter term programs (e.g. Columbia) really difficult. That's because short termers end up joining the regular student body as full time students. They don't dilute quality simply because you'll be there for a shorter stay.
