which school to apply - 9 yrs exp, 3 yrs break ???? [#permalink] New post 14 Aug 2013, 13:38
Hi,

I have just given GMAT and my scores are 660, Q - 47, V- 34 (yet to get the official score)

I have a bachelors in engg. (computer science) with 72% marks (completed my engg. in 2000)
I have 5 yrs of experience in IT and 4 yrs in Learning & Development. I have handled both techinical and managerial roles. I also have international working experience.

I understand that my scores are in the not so great category, it was sort of difficult to get back to books after these many years. MBA would be getting me back in the business world. I would prefer a specialization in International Business ( but this is just a preference).

Some options which I have in mind are:

Thunderbird
Texas A & M
Scheller business School
University of Illinois-Urbana Champaign

Could you suggest if I am looking at the right options and if there are other safe schools which I can aspire for??

Thanks

I'm no expert, but I believe those school should right on target. You will probably have to explain the 3 year gap in your application, but I don't think it will be too big of a problem.

Also - Have you considered the Indian School of Business?

They usually take a lot of IT Engineers.

Thanks for the reply. As I am currently in US and am likely to be here for few more years, did not consider ISB . also was not sure my score would be sufficient to break into their selection.

Can you suggest a few more schools in US which I could apply to.

Thanks again for your inputs.

hey,
actually from your post it appears as if you want to find out colleges that you could get into.. not the colleges that you should try to get into.. or the colleges that may help you with what you want to do.. (which we dont know yet)...
Try to figure out what you want.. else, there are tons of colleges barring top 30, where you may have a decent shot.
