ISB would be a stretch. I am not familiar with NTU. You would be competitive at NUS.

Best,

Purdue and Fisher are good options. You may also want to consider Michigan State Broad and Smith. However these are two-year programs. CMU Tepper is something for you to consider, but it would be more of a stretch. I believe that Georgia Tech has a one-year program but can't comment on its strength in operations.

You have a competitive profile for Judge and Said.

Best,
Linda

University of Maryland is known for a good Operations Management program.

You should definitely try there. The cost is great too.
