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.

Thanks for your post and hats off to your being the first in your family to achieve a college degree. If it's the MBA you are after, you will need to log 3-5 years of work experience before you apply. The MBA is a unique degree which requires you to bring to the table substantial real world experience that you have achieved in most cases post college. I see you age is 28 so perhaps you have some work experience before college, but in most cases, b-schools will discount any non-post college work experience. If you are interested in a Master's degree in mangement or a one year business degree, these programs are more lenient on the admission requirements as are part time MBA programs, which you could try to do while also working. Hope this helps.
