Thanks for your inquiry.

I would discourage your application to INSEAD and Kellogg's one-year program. Your GMAT is very low for both programs and I think both would look at you much as more as an EMBA candidate. You have a better chance at IMD, although there too you may be a better fit for its EMBA. FYI, Kellogg's one-year program is for people with a business degree.

I would encourage you to consider either Cornell's Accelerated program, which is for MBA candidates with an advanced degree in a field other than business, or the Sloan Fellows programs at London Business School, MIT, or Stanford. I think you would have a good chance at the latter programs. Here is an interview I had a couple of years ago with the director of MIT's Sloan Fellow's Program. I think you will find it informative. Here's another one with the head of LBS' Sloan Fellow's program.
