Hi Jayant,

With the given profile you can target top 20 b-schools. With almost 5 yrs. of work experience, you are likelihood of being admitted in b-schools. Moreover, the chances of admission depend mostly on your application essays and interviews. You can write about team headship in your application essays and talk about achievements at work place during final interviews. You can also try your chances in b-schools by clicking http://www.general-ed.com/chances-of-bschool

Feel free to post any other concerns you might have. You can PM your number to have a discussion over profile and selection of b-schools.

Cheers!!
Neha
