I have about 6 years experience with nonprofits and government departments in India. Given my lack of experience in a traditional business setup, how do I prove my motivations for a business education?

Many successful candidates come from nonprofit/government sector - you will need to share what your short and long term goals are and how it relates to your past experience and highlight transferable skills.

It’s not exactly the difference in the list - its the difference in each specific program.
US schools are typically 2 years, with internship and salary 175-200K USD; UK/EU/Asian schools are typical 1-1.5 years and salary closer to 125EUR - time out of work force and internship can/should be a factor in calculating ROI and career advancement

Yes, if that is the direction you want to go with your career - don’t apply to those programs if it isn’t your goal, as you can get in without the dual degree option ---- hope this makes sense

If it is a good fit with your career goals and your profile is similar/aligned with the typical class profile, you should go for it.

Yale, Stanford, Haas, Duke, CBS, HBS, Booth, IESE, ESMT, Oxford, Cornell, Warwick

Almost all programs have some sort of specialization related to Social Impact, but these are the ones ranked by Financial Times and US News

Did anyone attend the MBA Spotlight Event - get to speak with any adcoms on your list?

There are a lot of other details that can go into this, but on a surface level, LBS/Oxford/UK schools are better for finance as London is financial hub and post alum are employed there. Visa information is changing, but still can be favorable. Depending on where you want to live/work post-grad, picking a school in that country is typically the best ROI.
