Supposing that I score 700 on GMAT do i have a chance at the above schools.
If you do score the 700 or above on the GMAT and you have been leading and making an impact in the current international company, then yes, I do think you stand a chance with these programs. My concerns are that this increase in GMAT score is not an easy one and 6 months in the current international company probably haven't been enough for you to make a sizable impact on it yet. If you are applying next year (and not second round this year), then it will be more likely that you can achieve these dual aims to prepare a strong application.
