I am a 23 year old Indian Male looking to join a B-School in 2015. I will be having 2 years of experience at matriculation. I graduated from a college ranked in Top 30 Engineering colleges of India and got a GPA of 7.71 (relative grading with the topper getting 9.6). I am a Computer Science graduate working in a leading company based in Palo Alto. They are leaders in the GRC(Governance, Risk and Compliance) domain and I am currently working in Bangalore.

GMAT Score:740

I have been working as a Software Developer in the Product Delivery department for a multi billion dollar client. They are the one of the biggest airline companies in the world. I have been consistently interacting with clients, building project requirements, designing technical documents and delivering quality products. I have obtained a very good appraisal from my managers and have been consistently lauded for the successful delivery of my modules.
I have shown consistent leadership skills even though I joined as a fresher and I am certain of getting at least 2 good recommendations from my seniors here.

I am a State scholar in the National Talent Search Examination. I have won various Quiz competitions at school and college level. I have organized many events and was the Quiz master in a national level Science Quiz organized by my college. I have won honorary awards in Hackathons and I have won various awards in multiple cultural and co curricular events.
I have interned at 2 companies for 2 months each when I was at college.

I wanted to know whether I can get into one of the top 50 colleges in the 2014 Financial Times rankings. My preferences are:
1. Tepper
2. Georgia Tech since I am interested in Tech Management.
3. Goizueta
4. Kelley
5. NUS Singapore/ Nanyang Singapore

I can provide more information if needed. I need to know whether I can successfully get into one of these colleges with my GPA, GMAT and experience(which is on the lower side).
I am concerned since I fall into the demographic of the "Indian IT Male " and competition is much higher.
Thanks in advance.

Your work experience will be lighter than average number of years, but because it's in programming, you may have an edge since this is a very desirable skill. You are looking at the right schools who have expertise in management and technology and I don't see why they wouldn't be interested in your profile. The key will be in casting a believable vision for your post MBA career and convincing them you will be able to get a job. Many schools in the top 50 but not in the top 20 scrutinize the applicants for employability since that has a big effect on the rankings and on attracting top students going forward. Be prepared to lay out a plan for your career in a way that makes sense and have passion for it. Let us know if we can help.
