Hi Abi,
you are on the higher side of the WE/age range for a regular 2 year MBA program. Which country/ies do you plan to study in?

Hi,

Thanks for your response. I am certainly not looking for a 2-year regular program.My preference is 1-yr program in Europe/US/India.

What I understand is that it will be bit of a challenge to convince Ad-com on my pursuing MBA at this stage.I need help in setting a target GMAT score and B-schools that would help me secure an admission. Also based on your experience of previous clients, what are the chances of getting an admission for someone with higher work-ex.

Thanks.

Hi,

You seem to have done well in your career, and your post-MBA goals seem reasonable as well. Some other considerations become important: which college did you study in, how does your promotion history compare with your peers, do you have any outstanding professional/leadership accomplishments, etc.

Apart from this - based on your age, you might be a better (although on the younger side of the scale) for executive programs. You will be one of the older candidates in a regular MBA program. This can weigh against you. For more details, please refer to: http://mbaadmissions.augustacademy.in/mba-over-30/

Finally, your GMAT is an important contributing factor as well.

We need to consider all this before shortlisting schools for you.

Regards,
Karthik
