I am an Indian IT professional with 4+years of experience as a Business Analyst. Currently working in India in a US based product management IT firm with opportunities of travelling onsite to US for projects.
I have done my undergrad in business management specializing in Finance with 7 GPA out of 10 and followed it up with an MBA Finance from one of the descent business schools in India with GPA of 6.3 on 10. Also have certifications in Financial Programs related to securities, equity research certified by the national stock exchange, India.
I want to give a boost to my profile and also looking to switch my profile hence last year I planned to prepare for GMAT in pursuit of an MBA from one of the top B schools. Currently I am hovering around the 650 score level for GMAT and plan to appear in a month or so. My target score is 700-740 and hence would be working towards it. Now I am yet to decide on the program that I would like to pursue but have a vague idea that it would be mostly in either Finance or Product Management owing to my experience. I am also considering the option of going for an analytics based program since that is one of the most sought after profiles at present and is a growing domain.

Kindly let me know based on my profile what would be the best options for me as far as the B schools to apply are concerned and what would be the suggested programs that I could pursue.
Would be interested to pursue an MBA in either US, Europe or India.

Give kudos and appreciate if you think its worthwhile

Hi there,
Thanks for your post. Good luck on the GMAT prep, as that will be a necessary, though not sufficient, component for a successful outcome for you. ;) Your undergrad academics sound solid; the grad school performance a bit less stellar. Your international experience is a plus. Work-wise, it depends somewhat on what you've accomplished thus far.

One challenge is the fact that you already hold an MBA; that can be a tough situation to overcome at many schools, and you'll really need to create a strong story making the case for the differences between this degree and the prior one, and why you NEED this degree.

You mention a lot of career interests; certainly that may affect your school choices, as might the GMAT. Re: business analytics or data analytics, there are also Masters in those areas offered at many b-schools these days, food for thought. Good luck and keep us posted!
