Dear Paul Bodine:
I would like to know whether my profile is the right fit or an overkill for a Full Time MBA Program in the Elite Schools (Iam targetting HWS).
Iam an Indian aged 33+ (:oops: )and working in abroad currently. I have a Masters Degree in Engineering and 10 Years of Work Ex in an Global IT Company. I have close to 7 years of Management experience (of the Total 10 years of experience). I manage a team of close to 1000 People (Responsible for 10s of Millions of USD)and have exposure to the entire operations of IT Company.
I worked in 4 continents, have exposure to multiple cultures and speak/understand/ manage couple of Foreign languages. I am very ambitious and a Study savvy guy.
I am very passionate to study in H or W or S and visited these schools during my visits to US (1998, 2002, 2004).As my background and profile was not good 7 years back, I struggled hard in my career to create a profile to getinto the School I wanted. Now I only know IT side of any business but would like to learn and gain experience on the business side (which I lack today) aswell so that I can be a complete business executive. I guess my 2 year Fulltime MBA will lay a foundation for what I am aspiring for.
Even though I am married and have kids, I strongly feel that I am still 33 (conflicting message..)
and still 20 more years to go in Business or profession. I would like to recharge,restrategise and equip myself to be competitive by doing MBA and realise my dreams (both personal and professional).
I would like to know whether I am the right guy for a Full time MBA? Are my global experience or age a hindrence for admission?
Request your advise.
