Hi,

I am summarizing my profile at the time of submitting my application. Please share your inputs on my chances for top one-year management programs globally. Also, any suggestions on which aspects of my profile need to be emphasized and/or de-emphasized?

Demographics:
Indian
Male
33 years

Work Experience:
3 promotions over 11 years in India at a leader in the telecommunications industry (think Fortune 50’ish)
9 years as a consulting engineer – traveled to multiple countries for consulting projects
2 years as a software product manager – responsible for about 30 engineers across 3 products
Significant experience with customers in Africa and Middle East, and internal globally dispersed teams
Saved millions of $ for the firm through process improvements

GMAT:
760 (Q=51, V=41, AW=6, IR=7) on first attempt

Education:
Undergrad: Engineering (B.E.) in Computer Science – 77% (First Class with Distinction)
Postgrad: Executive Post Graduate Diploma in Management from Indian Institute of Management (top tier for management education in India) – AMBA accredited program blending distance learning + classroom sessions (CGPA 3.5)

Certifications:
PMP
ITIL foundation
Entry level Java and networking certifications

Goals of doing this program:
Short-term: grow further in Product Management in tech field
Long-term: lead an innovative tech firm which directly improves the lives of people across sections of society

Any other US based one-year programs which can be relatively “safe” options compared to the above given my goals and background?

With those scores and promotions, I'd say you have a shot! Quite frankly at this stage your age might be an issue- but you can't control that- and I'd still say you have a very solid chance. Depends on how compelling you were in your application- as I have seen good and bad applications from candidates- usually before they work with me (not so good) and after (much better). So hopefully you told your story well... and if you did- I think you can be competitive!
Thanks in advance for your valuable insights!
