Hi,

Thanks for your post. Your resume/work experience sounds quite extensive and impressive, however as you likely know, obtaining a second MBA can be quite challenging, and the more selective the school, the tougher that can be as well (and your school list is extremely competitive). It will be vital that you make a very clear case for what you need from this additional MBA compared to the prior degree, and that you have a very clear post-MBA plan in terms of goals, as well as explanation for why each school is right for you. With the combination of how experienced you are and the prior MBA I would encourage you to research or consider some executive MBA options as well, or at least a few of the full-time exec MBA equivalents such as MIT Sloan Fellows, LBS, Stanford MSx (note the years of experience varies, you may qualify for some but not others). I would encourage you to consider another GMAT attempt depending upon what your history with GMAT was like, given the caliber of school you are aiming for. Let us know what other questions you have, what your plans and timing are, and feel free to sign up for a free consultation if you'd like to discuss further!
