All the best for the GMAT - that will drive a lot of your targets.

Coming from a Navy background will help - but here's more information you should share:

1) Nationality
2) Gender
3) Age
4) Details of Work Exp (Comany, duration, positions held)
5) Extra Currs

If you can get a score above 750 - US schools ranked 15-25 will be a good bet, given that your essays and other applications materials are well written.

Schools in the top 15 will be difficult given your age and nationality, but if you have a unique story, which is quite often the case with army/navy candidates, it can help you stand out.

Post MBA goals will also be very important - so do your research on that front as well

Here are a few things you may want to consider as you continue your MBA journey akhiparth:

  1. In general, MBA after 30 is tricky; read here. So choose your programs wisely so as not to be a misfit/huge outlier. In that respect, check out the Fellows programs.
  2. MBA and EMBA are very very different and usually serve pretty different purposes. EMBA is usually constrained by the geography you are in. Given that you mention Indian Navy, a US EMBA might be tough logistically speaking at least.
  3. Do read about our experience with candidates of your profile here.

Hope this helps some.

Hi akhiparth,

Considering your GMAT is scheduled for the end of April, we suggest you get back with your query once you have a score :) Your career goals would also be crucial in order to assess your fit with various business schools, besides the age, of course, which is also a factor in your case.

Looking forward to hearing from you :)

All the best!
