Hi Dec.dream,

Your ‘why MBA’ and ‘post-MBA goals’ need work.

You don’t want an expensive degree to gain international experience and learn from peers. They can at best be means to something else. Access to funding and finding business partners are bad reasons for pursuing an MBA. Funding, for example, would come almost entirely on merits of the business. And doing an MBA from the geography where you sell products is probably the most expensive way to learn BD and sales.

On the goals side, why do you want to quit the current business and start another? Who will take care of the current business while you’re away doing an MBA?

In any case, you’ll improve your odds by improving your GMAT score.
