Would you be kind to answer a few queries regarding school selection and give me some ideas so that I can research schools further?
Indian Male 27 years
High School in India
Bachelors in Computer Science from liberal arts college in Midwest. GPA 3.89/4.0.
Founded dot-com while in college with a couple of college-friends that went from boom to bust real quick. Lived broke for 6 months post 911 in Nyc before joining web startup to learn where I failed. Working for 4+ years since in almost all aspect (except billing) from Sales & Marketing, Business development to managing Technology Dept. Worked on various projects - you guys know everything web related in mission critical. Worked with clients (very popular web services/sites) from many different countries.
Why MBA? Im quite sure that I want to stay and work in the Internet Industry. With the experience that I have now, I want to polish up my leadership skills and want to pursue upper management leadership roles in one of the Internet biggies (Google, Yahoo, Amazon
, Ebay, one that will be big in 2 years!, etc.). I want to pursue a Product manager role right after MBA. I also have a strong entrepreneural side so may consider starting something on my own down the road, but not right after my MBA.
Here is where I need your help please:
I am not sure if I should focus on IT concentration, or more of General management since I have somewhat IT background.
Also, I am confused whether to choose a more techie school since I have liberal arts education and have superior soft skills than quant skills.
Lastly, I want a school which is more popular globally so that I can use the brand outside US as well as I have a strong desire to work in Europe and Asia as well.
Can you please suggest some schools to look into?
Please let me know if you have any questions.
I believe its yogurt!
