I want to know whether MBA would help me realize my goals .

My profile:
Age :32
Years of experience :10 years ( 8 of which is in UK and US ) of IT.
Education : Engg. undergraduate from India and Master from Viriginia Tech ( part time ). GPA - 3.4

Presently working as Project Leader / Architect.

My very specific goal is to lead big projects for big consulting companies ( not only as Project Leader but also as someone who would guide the company in getting big projects ).Plus i want to develop leadership capabilities .

Question : Will MBA help me in this ? Am i too old to pursue a degree ?. Also applying to which school will help me realize my goals.

It's hard to help you pick schools based on the limited info you provided here. But I'm not sure that you need an MBA to help you achieve this goal. If you're looking to lead big projects -- esp. at your current firm -- and have built a track record of success, my advice is to keep doing what you're doing. An MBA would be most helpful to you for switching careers, but it doesn't sound like that's what you want to do, so it may not be worth it for you.

If you do think you need management training, see if your company will sponsor you in a part-time program. That could be ag ood way for you to grow as a business leader and keep growing as a project manager in your firm, too.
