Greetings to all.

I am M/28 Age with close to 9 years of experience in Automobile Industry in After Sales Function (A Seasoned Service Professional).
I have a decent academic track in Matric 84.6% , Higher Sec 84.9% and Diploma Mechanical Engineering with 86.13%

I am the first one in my family, about to get a Bachelors degree in engineering. As such, I have very few/none to give proper advice on B Schools, etc.
I am just completing my Bachelors of Automobile Engineering through Part Time Program ( Evening classes )
Somehow, my Bachelors academic record is poor( Have number of reasons, but, I know that doesn't help. ), I am just close to 6.5 CGPA on 10 Point Scale.
I have had arrears and I have cleared them in the consecutive semesters. Now, after my final semester, i still have one paper arrear.
I will be able to clear this paper in the winter exams, I may be securing a FIRST CLASS also.

Now, I am interested to pursue my B School Graduation.
In simple terms, I want to accelerate my CAREER. I have been very good in people management in my profession.

Please suggest, whether B Schools accept such an academic profile, if they do, pl suggest some of the B Schools, also, a hint on the program and financial aids will be of great help to decide on whether to pursue B School graduation.

Dear Sathish,
So first of all, your profile is fine for a Business School. Plenty of people from the automotive industry go to business school at some point. As for which school: the best place to start is schools which will provide you what you need for your goals. So the first thing I would suggest if to define for yourself specific goals. The schools close to Michigan in the US are a good place to start. (Maybe Germany too, if you are willing to learn German!).

Then of course you would have to take your GMAT. I think that top schools might be a bit out of range for you given your profile, but that does not mean that there are not fantastic business schools for you out there.

Financial aid can be tough to come by, especially if your grades and GMAT are not stellar, and in most schools is awarded based on merit.

Hope this helps and if you have any further questions, do not hesitate!!!!!
