Hi,
Following is my brief profile:
Age: 32 (Married with 1 Kid)

GMAT: Scheduled on 2nd Sept. 2017. Mock range – 670-710

Work Ex: 9 years
Post-MBA: 9 years
1. Business Analyst at Bharti AXA Life Insurance for 2 years, working on different models and tie ups with various Banks.
2. Worked with a Design consultant and Interior designer as Business Development manager for 2 years.
3. Worked with Nirmal Lifestyle Pvt. Ltd. as a brand manager, worked with brands like US Open, Discovery, FINA and NDTV.
4. Working in family business, handling operations, marketing and sales for Custom clearing agent
5. Working on my entrepreneurial journey as Founder of Engage Fitness application, a mobile app for Employee Engagement.


Work Ex:
MBA from We School of Management, Mumbai, India

Reason for doing 2nd MBA:
1. To move from business to the corporate world.
2. Gain international exposure

Target B-school:
INSEAD, KELLOGs, CORNELL,
1 year programs in US or Europe which give good exposure and innovative learning.



My questions are:
1. Which colleges should I target
2. As the deadlines for Round 1 for many colleges is within 15 days of giving my GMAT, would that be ample amount of time.

Thanks for help

Hi, and thanks for writing! A few things to consider based on the info you've provided:

1. Not all of the top U.S. schools will accept applications for a second MBA, though some definitely do - check the sites carefully
2. Even if they do, you need to make a very clear case for how you'll benefit professionally and personally from the 2nd MBA, and which resources of the schools you'll take advantage of to help you meet your goals
3. The average# of work experience for the top schools is generally 3-7 years - since you'll have over 8 years, you'll want to make sure to explain why NOW is the right time for this degree

What is your post-MBA goal (i.e. industry and function?) This will help determine which programs are right for you. Regarding timing - with a September 2 exam date, R1 could be tough unless you've already started the application and made decent progress. While applying early can be a benefit for applicants from a heavily represented pool, at the same time you want to make sure your application is as strong as it can be before applying.

Hope that helps! :)
