Thanks for responding. As far as my goals are concerned I definitely want to target schools that are strong in general management to broaden/deepen my skill set and keep my options open. If my feelings don't change over the next three years I will probably target a management/director position in IT strategy after graduation. For a more long term goal I would like to target a CIO position or another upper management position that requires strong strategic management/decision making skills.
That said, since my skill set is more on the business side of IT I would not be opposed to leaving IT all together if that right opportunity presented itself.
Which schools that are in the top ten (that are strong in general management) do you think I have the best chance of getting accepted into?
The schools in USNews's top 10 that are strong in general management that I think you have the best chance of getting accepted into are Northwestern and Tuck. The other top 10 schools are either not especially noted as general management programs, too tough for you to break into given the profile you gave, or both.
