Hi there,

Thanks for sharing your background with us. Your best bet is to seek out schools known for their strength in general management and earn a concentration or specialize in Organizational Management (or something similar). With your profile, while your work experience is good, I don't see comments on your leadership capacity. Do you lead team? Have you earned a promotion? As far aw your academic profile goes, it lags a bit behind for top 5 schools. I think schools in the top 15-25 make sense for you (aggregate ranking) in the US. For Canada, I'd look at schools just outside the top 5. And for Singapore and EU, I'd focus on outside the top 10. Now, that's not to say you can't aim higher. You can, but those programs would be stretch programs at this stage.

Where do you see yourself ending up geographically? It may make sense to focus in on a region so that we can come up with an action plan to improve your profile between now and application time for a certain set of schools. Further, we can develop a story framework that allows you to standout from the crowd at your target programs. Feel free to sign up for a free consultation if you'd like to chat about how we can help. Best of luck!
