You should be competitive at your targets, but make sure you flesh out your short and long term goals a bit more to come off as mature and ready for your next step. You might also consider Rice if you are looking to work in the energy space.

Sorry for the delay on this--for some reason was missing this post last month. I think you have done several things to position you well for a career in finance, particularly in your speciality of energy finance. I would also look at Rice as I mentioned in the other post above. The CFA will be impressive and will help you stand out as an Indian applicant since not many Indian applicants will have the CFA designation. Your work experience is a bit light on years, but seems pretty intensive from a consulting perspective. you will need to make the connection between what you do now and how that will position you well to make the leap to finance. Emphasize the quantitative or data analytics portion of your current role. Be able to speak passionately about why finance interests you--try to say something not everyone would be able to say.

Sir,
Thanks for the detailed review of my profile. Given my less work experience, I am looking forward to apply for some Ms Finance programs to break into finance industry,. Can you please suggest me MSF programs(not quant oriented) in US & Canada.

I will be grateful if provided with the info.

Thanking you in advance

Most reputable MBA programs are going to have a good MS program as well, so I would start with schools known for finance such as Virginia, Chicago, Duke.
