Below are my details
Occupation : Program Manager in IT industry
Part-time : small entrepreneurial ventures - so far published a device apps that has 100000+ users, set up vegetable delivery company procuring directly from farmers (no middleman) and also a profit sharing agreement and hence contributing to sustainable business model. Also founded a NGO working on eduation (currently very less active)
Experience : 7 yrs in IT industry mostly project/program management responsibilities and for the past two years performing business development and consultative sales roles as well
Target schools : Interested in social entrepreneurship and attracting venture capitalist. Oxford Said school, Yale and Kelloggs.
Please evaluate my fit and competitiveness for these schools
You seem like a good fit for all three of these programs. Oxford
seems like the best fit to me because they do tend to be a bit older than students at Yale
(I estimate you are 29 now and that is Oxford's average matriculation age, compared with Yale and Kellogg's 28) and the GMAT average at Oxford is a bit lower (around 690 compared with the 715-720 range at Kellogg and Yale. As a general rule, I find sales roles are less persuasive in application essays than examples of business development and managing across departments.
