Hi,

I am a 29 yr old Indian male having 5 years of experience as a Business Analyst-Product Management in IT-Finance domain (Financial Services(Private Equity/M&A-CRM softwares) post an MBA in Finance from a reputed B school in India.
My Gmat date is Oct 17 and I am not really sure regarding the schools to send my scores to before the test. I am looking at Europe, Australia (have my sister staying there) or Asia-Pacific as my MBA destination and I am looking at schools such as Melbourne Business School, NUS Singapore, ISB, though not sure of the program that will suit my profile since I believe US will be a hard nut to crack considering the strict regulations now and challenges in acquiring sponsorship post mba. Basically I am planning to switch my profile and work in a different domain. As of now I think that a course in Finance (Investment domain) would be beneficial in the long run as far as career prospects are concerned but not really zeroed in on a particular domain as I am also toying with the idea of a course in analytics. My score range in mocks currently is 650-750 (got 740 last mock).

Kindly advise what schools I should select for sending score reports based on the aforementioned information. Please feel free to advise other B schools and programs that will be a suitable fit for me considering the career prospects.

Hi there,
Sounds like your practice test scores are going well, knock on wood, so good luck on the 17th!! There are SO many factors to consider when choosing schools... yes geography; post-MBA preferences in terms of region and industry/role; length of program (big difference between 1 & 2 year options); size of program; alumni network; reputation in the area you want to work in; curriculum; class profile etc etc. You may be interested in our 'Selecting Schools' guide (free download), at:

https://shop.mbamission.com/products/se ... ba-program

So far I'd say I don't have enough criteria to give a lot of recommendations, so I'd say choose the set of schools right NOW that sound most appealing to you and have scores go there, but know you can always add on score reports/schools later at a reasonable cost per school through mba.com, and most people wind up doing so for some schools.

Also, just a note that for the purposes of the applications, you will want to choose a particular career path and be able to describe it and support it well, in order to best make the case that you do need the MBA and know it makes sense for you.

Good luck and keep us posted!
