Hi,
I am 32 year old Indian male working in IT Infra consulting and solutioning. I have ~ 9.3 years of experience and would like to pursue an MBA . Post MBA goal is to move into IT Sales team . Although my interested lies in marketing/sales/product management of aerospace/defense related products. I would need some suggestion
1) I have heard from many folks that it may a bit late now for me as I am on wrong side of 30 and have a lot of work ex.
2) I have given GMAT once in 2016 with a dismal score of 590, I will give GMAT again by Sept 2017 and aim for a 700 + score.
Need some pointers and suggestions.
Best Regards,

Italian boxer,

It is never too late. It only depends how you can prove that why this is right time for you to do MBA.

If you have 9 + years of work ex then you can target executive MBA in which generally higher exp guys enter.

good luck
PS: give me kudos if you like my post

thanks for the help buddy !! Executive MBA are okay provided your organization finances you. Or may be i am wrong. I am looking for a 2 year course (In US) or 1 year(In India/Europe) . So just wanted to enquire if my exp is a bit high for me to consider a full fledged MBA degree!
Any suggestions will be appreciated.

2 year full time MBA is for less experienced person. you should target for 1 year MBA such as : ISB india, INSEAD france, IMD Switzerland, IME spain etc..

To be realistic, if you are Indian national with IT background, it will be VERY VERY VERY difficult to get into aerospace/defense product management (especially outside of India).
1) Software and hardware are very different industries. Software is about building the best product possible because the cost is in the initial investment, and there's almost no scaling cost. In hardware/physical products, cost management is a critical part of market success. As easy as that sounds, people with software background have hard time transitioning to physical product company. Case and point, Google has not had any success when it venture into hardware space.
2) Aerospace/defense industries concern national security. Any significant involvement in those industries require citizenship in the home country. That is a rule written in stone, and there's no way around it.
